When AsleepInformation regarding your new mattress
Its first night's use and the first few weeks.
Thank you for buying a Back in Action Visco Mattress.
Please read this before your first nights sleep.
IMPORTANT: ... high quality visco mattresses such as yours have a long long life and need virtually no care or turning (only rotating).
They do need patience in the first few weeks. Each night you use the mattress it will soften a little until after a few weeks it has reached its optimum.
We'd like to remind you that low quality visco mattresses feel good right out of the packet ... the foam is lower quality and the manufacturers know that if it doesn't feel good instantly in your home then it will be sent back with a complaint. Please consider that low quality visco mattresses will rapidly become too soggy, losing essential support and usually leading to sleep pains.
At Back in Action we only supply high quality visco mattresses so please be patient ... it will be several weeks before your mattress is like the one you tried in store. It will be worth the wait so that you can experience 15 years of great sleep in return for your patience.
Applies to Sprung Mattresses and Visco Foam Mattresses
These mattresses will be at their most springy and padded on arrival in your home.
Because they are largely air they will quickly take on the temperature of the bedroom and can be slept on normally on the first night.
If your new mattress is pocket sprung and high quality then the springs have a very long life. It will be years before they change much.
However the padding on pocket sprung mattresses will change quickly, and become indented where you lie. So to avoid a dip developing into which you roll ... which then creates a bigger dip and so on ... it is essential to rotate and turn the mattress as regularly as you can. This will give you a predicted life of about 7 years.
IMPORTANT: The inevitable bedding down of the padding means that pocket sprung mattresses tend to become firmer with age ... even with turning ... so you may find the mattress a little too padded for the first few weeks.
If you new mattress is linked springs then the springs lose resilience more quickly, but the padding beds down less with time ... so the effect over time is that the mattress becomes more soggy. Once again we suggest turning it very regularly to prolong its life.
IMPORTANT: Your new linked spring mattress may feel harder than it felt in the store.
All Sprung mattresses always have sewn on covers ... we suggest the use of a mattress protector to keep the mattress clean, and washing the protector occasionally.
IMPORTANT: For all the above reasons we only suggest sprung mattresses for those with the strength to turn a mattress, fit and remove a protector, and for those who are happy to change their mattress every 7 yrs tops.
High quality visco mattresses don’t deteriorate where your body regularly lies on them.
A high quality visco mattress should outlast a spring mattress and also remain comfortable for much longer. There's no need to turn the mattress over, but we do recommend spinning it head to toe regularly as stated in the warranty information supplied with the mattress.
Because they are dense the mattresses will take time to reach room temperature, perhaps three or four days if left covered with a duvet. For this reason we suggest you leave them with the duvet turned down during the day at first.
All visco mattresses will soften with age, but they don't go on softening ... the high quality ones will arrive at you very firm and soften to their near final state within about four weeks.
Chances are that you will want to sleep on your new Visco mattress first night, so placing a duvet underneath as well as on top for a night might make the mattress feel warmer and softer, especially if it was delivered in the winter months.
Because high quality visco mattresses will last a long time many come with a removable and washable cover. If your new mattress has a removable cover we suggest you don't bother with a mattress protector ... that would decrease comfort ... but we suggest you remove and wash the cover once or twice a year and lightly vacuum the inside top surface. (low suction!).
You can buy replacement covers if you want to launder more regularly and if you cant get a cover dried the same day.
