It is all about a good comfort sleep

Caring for your mattress​

  • Use a high-quality, washable mattress protector to to keep your mattress healthy and clean. Mattress protectors and mattress pads are not the same thing. Protectors utilise a breathable backing to keep moisture out of the mattress. This feature ensures a healthy sleep environment. A typical mattress “pad” will not have this feature.

  • For two-sided traditional innerspring mattresses only, rotating and flipping in accordance to the manufacturer’s warranty will minimise body impressions and prolong the mattress’ comfort life.

  • For single-sided traditional innerspring mattresses/ memory foam/ hybrid mattresses, rotate your mattress periodically, but DO NOT flip. Rotation will equalize wear and extend the mattress' comfort life. Sleep Country suggests rotating every two weeks for the first two months and four times a year thereafter.

  • Memory Foam is sensitive to temperature and humidity. It becomes firmer in lower temperatures and humidity levels. If your mattress has been delivered folded at temperatures below 40 degrees, you must allow time for it to adjust to the surrounding room temperature—forcing it open can cause damage.

  • Never wash memory foam or any high density materials in your mattress.

  • Do not remove the legal label from your mattress. This is needed to identify your appropriate product warranty coverage.

Caring for your sleep​

  • Wake up at the same time every morning.

  • Exercise regularly and be sure to complete your workout a few hours before bedtime. 

  • Eat right and be sure to avoid large meals 2-3 hours before bedtime. If you get hungry, have a light snack instead.

  • Avoid taking naps during the day, especially if you’re having trouble sleeping at night.

  • Avoid caffeine too close to bedtime as it tends to keep you awake.

  • Avoid alcohol and nicotine, which lead to poor, disruptive sleep.

  • Keep computers, televisions, phones and other work-related materials out of your bedroom. 

  • Engage in a relaxing bedtime ritual to help you fall asleep. This might include aromatherapy, listening to music, meditation or soaking in a hot bath.

  • Go to sleep when you feel tired. If possible, go to sleep at the same time every night.

  • Make sure your mattress set and pillows are comfortable and supportive.

  • Make sure your bedroom is dark, quiet and at a comfortable temperature. 

  • If you can’t fall asleep, get out of bed, go into another room and do something relaxing until you feel sleepy.

  • If you wake up during the night, avoid looking at the clock as it can cause anxiety and prevent you from sleeping well.

  • If you still have trouble sleeping, try keeping a sleep diary. 

  • If you have further concerns, consult a doctor for advice.
