Rotating Your Mattress
When should you rotate your mattress?
If your mattress is designed to be rotated then it's important to try and do this every 3-6 months. By rotating the mattress you are giving the layers and springs of the mattress time to rest and recover from the pressure that is placed on it every night.
When we lie on a mattress the pressure from our body is limited to the middle and upper sections of the mattress. By rotating the mattress we change the area of the mattress we are lying on for a 3-6 month period.
Don't try and fold or roll your mattress, even for a short period of time. Your mattress is designed and constructed for use only in a flat position.
It's also best to not attempt to turn or rotate the mattress by yourself. We recommend that you seek assistance. Apart from the risk of personal injury to yourself, you also risk damaging the pocket springs should you bend or roll the mattress.
The sewn on handles are intended to help rotate and position the mattress while lying flat on the divan base. Handles sewn to a mattress are not designed to support the full weight of the mattress and you would risk damaging the border upholstery if you use them to flip the mattress.
Check to see if your mattress is designed to be rotated before doing so.
