questions about our commercial range.
There are four sleep system performance tests. Check the results of these tests from any sleep system manufacturer from whom you are considering a
purchase (the unit should be tested as a set - mattress and foundation):
The best way to make this comparison is to consider both a firm and plush sleep set in person - visit a Sealy reseller to
see and experience the various mattress options. Having 'tested' the variation in comfort level you can better determine the comfort level desired
for your property. You can then compare your comfort preference within three quality grade of sleep sets; top-of-the-line, mid-range or lower
range, and understand the differences of these price points. This comparison helps you to make an informed decision, providing an understanding of the
type of sleep set and its significant features such as the type of innerspring unit, key comfort layers, type of edge support and significant features
of the foundation.
Yes! A good foundation is as important as a good mattress. It acts like a large shock absorber, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear, and it also
contributes to your guest's comfort and support. Don't put a new mattress on an old foundation. An old foundation will cause the new mattress to wear
unevenly and more quickly. When selecting a mattress, purchase its companion foundation - the two are designed to work best together.
Today's mattresses are manufactured with much more padding, upholstery and comfort layers. Many consumers (who are also hospitality guests) prefer the
plush and ultra-plush comfort that these thick mattresses provide. To accommodate deep mattresses, deep-pocketed fitted sheets are now commonly
The quilting design on a Sealy mattress cover helps to determine the firmness or plushness of the sleep surface. If a quilting design is small and
close, the bed will tend to feel firmer; if the design is large and spread out, the bed will usually feel plusher. Remember - when purchasing a Sealy
Posturepedic sleep set, you get the correct support regardless of comfort level or price.
We recommend that you rotate your Sealy mattress on a regular basis to refresh its comfort. Mattresses contain many layers of upholstery padding to increase
their comfort life and support performance. Body indentations can be a normal occurrence in new mattresses, and indicates that the upholstery layers
are conforming to a person's individual body contours. To help minimize body impressions, mattresses should be turned occasionally throughout their
life. For convenience, we have illustrated below the best method.
It is very important to keep your Sealy mattresses clean. We suggest using a mattress pad or Sealy's patented HealthCare product. Don't allow your
mattresses to get wet - they should be adequately protected from water or other liquids. Do not use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress. These chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.
Keeping your Sealy bedding clean is simple with the use of a protective mattress pad. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If you must clean
a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly! Don't ever soak a mattress or foundation, and don't use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your
mattress -- these chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.
A great way to protect against these types of issues is to invest in Sealy's HealthCare. HealthCare helps inhibit moisture/ fluid passing through
to the mattress promoting a longer mattress life and reducing maintenance and room down time. See the product catalogue to learn more.
Two people should normally carry a Sealy mattress flat on its side. It's easier to handle and less likely to be damaged. Do not bend the mattress
under any circumstances - bending may damage the innerspring unit. Flex rather than bend the mattress when going through doorways, and also avoid
bending the corners when putting on fitted sheets.
It is important to use a sturdy bed frame! If your mattress is a queen or king set, make sure that your frame has the extra centre support needed to prevent
bowing and sagging. This is required to ensure complete warranty protection for your sleep set. Sealy's recommendation for adequate frame support
is illustrated below:
The best way to get the longest life out of your mattress is to have it supported by a Sealy foundation. Our foundations are designed to work with your
mattress as a shock absorber. A Sealy foundation can add up to 60% longer lifetime to your mattress, giving you a greater return for your purchase.
