Q: How often should I change my bed?
There is no set time to say when to change your bed, however it would depend on the type of bed, the age and how often it is used.
A good quality bed could have a life span of up to 20 years or more. It is advised for comfort and health reasons to change your mattress every 5-10 years
Q: Should I decide to change my mattress, would I have to change the base?
It is advised that you replace both the base and the mattress as they are designed to work together with the base acting as a shock absorber.
Changing one without the other could also possibly impact on the warranty.
Q: How would I know that I need a new mattress?
There would be a number of signals to look for;
- If you are not sleeping as well as you normally do.
- Do you perhaps wake up with pains or aches?
- Can you see a physical change in the shape of the mattress. (Bowing or sagging?)
Q: How often should I turn my mattress?
It is advised to adhere to the manufacturer instructions, certain beds do not require turning. You could turn your mattress every couple of months from head to toe.
Q: What are the different types of mattresses?
Other than the visible differences and quality of the ticking (Fabric) and construction type, beds such as latex foam, memory foam or innerspring mattresses are available.
Innerspring - (Coil type) could include;
Bonnell, Pocketed springs or offset.
- The quality of the memory foam mattress depends mainly on the density of the foam, the higher the density the better the mattress.
- The difference between a memory foam mattress and latex foam is how the mattress would mould to the body and how quickly the mattress recovers its shape.
- The best advice is to meet with a Sleepmasters expert in store who is knowledgeable and would understand your needs in respect of comfort levels, budget etc.

We recommend that you invest in a quality mattress protector to avoid nasty stains and spills. However, even with a mattress protector it is still advisable to clean your mattress from time to time.

Never soak a mattress or foundation or use harsh cleaning materials as these can damage the comfort layers
