How often should I turn my bed?
Unless you have purchased a 'No Turn' mattress we recommend that during the first six months of use, your mattress should be turned every two weeks and then monthly thereafter.
You should alternate between turning the mattress over and rotating it from top-to-tail to ensure even settlement. If your mattress has handles, use these to position it on the divan base.
Do not allow the mattress to bang or fall against the side of the divan, as this may damage the spring system.
Although our 'No Turn' mattresses will never need to be turned over, we recommend that you rotate the mattress from top-to-tail regularly, following the instructions above, so that the mattress wears evenly.
How do I clean my mattress and/or base?
No mattress is completely colourfast. We, therefore, recommend that you use a mattress cover, which will protect it from coming into contact with body moisture or other liquids.
Do not use detergents or chemical cleaners on your mattress as this is likely to damage the fabric and stitching.
How long does it take to deliver a Silentnight mattress and/or bed?
