BEDDING BASICS

FAQs

Q. How much should I spend on a new sleep set?

A: Mattress prices range greatly: from Rs. 8,000 to Rs. 180,000 for a set. A good night's sleep is one of the best investments you can make, so buy the best mattress you can afford. Keep in mind that most of us spend as much as one-third of our time in bed. Your investment will cost just pennies per night over the next ten years! In fact, a Rs. 40,000 sleep set costs less than Rs. 11 per night (based on a full 10-year warranty).

Q. How long should my bedding last?

A: The Better Sleep Council (UK), advises consumers to buy the highest quality bedding they can afford, then replace old bedding every 8-10 years. After these many years, even the best bedding may no longer provide the comfort and support you deserve.

Q. Should I replace my foundation when purchasing a new mattress?

A: Yes! A good foundation (otherwise known as a "boxspring") is as important as a good mattress! It acts much like a large shock absorber, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear. And it contributes to your comfort and support. Don't put a new mattress on an old foundation. When you select the mattress, purchase its companion foundation. The two are designed to work best together.

Q. How do I make sure I get adequate support in a sleep system?

A: A good mattress and foundation will support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same posture as when you are standing.

Q. What role does the mattress play in producing higher quality sleep?

A: Optimizing the level of support the spine receives during the night is paramount to getting quality sleep. Studies show that when the correct amount of support is supplied, the spine remains aligned and a person can enjoy a thorough rest period for the entire night. However, if the spine is not aligned due to a non-supportive sleep surface, a person's back muscles work throughout the night in an attempt to position the spine properly. As a result, they wake up feeling sore and unrested.

Q. How do I care for my mattress?

A: Give your new sleep set time to "air" upon removal from its plastic packaging. Dispose of all plastic packaging as soon as possible.

  • Carry your mattress flat on its side. It's easier to handle and you'll be less likely to damage the mattress.
  • Keep your bedding clean. Hush recommends using a mattress protector.
  • Replace the old foundation when purchasing a new mattress. An old foundation may not provide sufficient support. It may appear that your new mattress is sagging when it is actually the foundation, which supports the mattress, that has become worn.
  • Use an appropriate frame and center support for queen and king size sets. Using the proper frame will ensure that your warranty remains in effect.
  • Turn your mattress occasionally to prolong the comfort and support life. Body indentations are a normal occurrence in your new mattress and indicate that the upholstery layers are conforming to your body's individual contours. You'll be pleasantly surprised with that "new mattress feeling" every time you turn your mattress.
  • Don't let anyone stand or jump on your mattress. It wasn't built for that type of weight distribution or abuse.
  • Don't allow your mattress to get wet. Some of the upholstery materials may compress. Protect it from water or other liquids.
  • Don't place a board between your mattress and foundation. Your sleep set is designed as an integrated system to provide you with proper support wherein the foundation plays an important role.
