- Customer comfort is not included with this warranty.
- The softening of a mattress over use time is completely normal and is not considered a structural defect.
Odd/Custom Size Mattress VarianceDue to coil barrel diameters, all custom/odd-size mattresses are subject to a 1" variance in each direction.
- As skilled as our builders are, it is almost impossible to construct a spring mattress to the exact dimensions of all size combinations. Each coil spring has a predetermined diameter, therefore we are somewhat limited when it comes to the width and length of the mattress. Since we cannot split a coil in half, we build the mattress to within a 1" variance of requested dimensions.
- In most cases our mattresses are very close to perfect. However, these restrictions do exist and it is completely normal to see your mattress slightly undersized.
What can I place my mattress on for proper support?
- Any of the following can be used to properly support a mattress:
- A firm, relatively new boxspring. The surface of the boxspring should be completely flat across with no "bowing" in the middle. If the boxspring is 8 years old or older, it should be replaced.
- A platform style bed frame with a roll-out slat system. The gap in between each slat should be no more than 3". If the gap in between each slat is wider than 3", more slats should be added or a boxspring/foundation needs to be used.
- A solid platform surface. The surface should be sturdy and completely flat, free from impressions. Keep in mind that the entire mattress must be supported evenly from edge to edge.
- An adjustable bed. All mattresses we make are designed to work with adjustable beds.
- Bed Frame - Center Support
- All mattresses with a width between 53” and 60" must be supported by a frame that has at least one (1) leg extending to the floor near the center of the bed. This includes standard sizes such as full (double) and queen.
- All mattresses with a width of 60" or greater must be supported by a frame that has at least two (2) legs extending to the floor near the center of the bed. This includes standard sizes such as king and California king.
- Center support, for mattress sizes listed above, is very important. Bed frames that lack center support can cause the mattress to “bow” towards the middle. This causes premature sagging and makes the mattress feel much softer than intended. To receive full benefit of your new mattress, please be sure your bed frame meets these requirements.
Mattress MaintenanceThe following are recommended to insure a mattress is properly maintained:
- Rotate the mattress, head to toe, once every 1-2 months.
- Similar to rotating the tires on your car, this allows the mattress to wear evenly over time.
- Failure to rotate a mattress can cause premature body impressions and loss of comfort.
- Mattresses with unique angle or corner cuts may not be able to be rotated.
- Use a waterproof mattress protector.
- This keeps the mattress clean and free of liquids/contaminants that could severely compromise materials inside.
- When liquids and moisture come in contact with a mattress, it is deadly.
- Any staining on a mattress would void the warranty.
How long is the coverage period?
- Warranty information and coding is printed on the white “law” tag affixed to the mattress. The warranty length is written in YR/YR format. For example, 10/10 is a 10-year warranty. The warranty coverage period runs from the original date of purchase. Replacement of the mattress does not extend the warranty period or begin a new limited warranty period. If this tag is removed, please retain with your other mattress records.
How do I submit a warranty claim?
