looking after your mattress

Your new bed has been made by Relyon’s craftsmen using some of the finest materials available. It is well worth treating your bed with a little care to ensure that it lasts for many years to come.

with all relyon mattresses, do’s:

DO let your mattress breathe
After unwrapping your bed from its packaging, leave it un-covered for a few hours to allow any condensation and odour to escape. Carefully dispose of the protective polythene covers as they can pose a danger to small children.
Airing Your Mattress
We advise airing your mattress at least once a week by turning back the bed linen to allow air to circulate around and through the mattress.
DO use a mattress protector
To prevent discolouration or marking of your mattress, we strongly recommend the use of a mattress protector. Avoid using a plastic sheet as this will lead to damage through condensation.
DO clean your mattress regularly
We'd advise that you brush or vacuum (using the upholstery attachment) you new bed every few months to keep it fresh. You should pay particular attention to the tuft buttons, as dust tends to settle there. Stains and spillages should be absorbed using a dry cloth or paper towels. Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners as this may bleach or disintegrate the fabric.

with all relyon mattresses, doN’Ts:

DON'T fold your mattress
Do not fold or roll your mattress as this will damage the spring unit, and the tufts may come through. This will be detrimental to the comfort of your mattress and will invalidate your guarantee.
DON'T jump on your bed
Do not jump on your bed. This will cause irreparable damage to the springs, cover and the base of the bed.
Habitually sitting
Do not habitually sit on the edge of your mattress for prolonged periods of time, as this will cause localised compression of fillings and damage to the mattress borders.
Cause of condensation
Never use your mattress either in a plastic bag or with a plastic bag between mattress and divan, as this will lead to damage through condensation.

Different Types of Bases
If you have purchased a mattress only, please ensure that your base is in good working order. If you are using a slatted base, we recommend the use of a ventilation peg board if the slats are more than 70mm apart. If you are using an old base, this may appear to be in good shape initially, but you should consider whether this will last another ten years or so. If the base is damaged in any way, this could have a detrimental effect on your mattress, and could therefore invalidate your guarantee.

If your bed base has drawers, be careful not to overload them with bulky or heavy items. The weight limit for a standard drawer is 15kg and 25kg for a timber drawer with dovetail joints.
