Mattress Setup (10 Frequently Asked Questions)

Q1. How do I open, unbox, and set up my new mattress?

The mattress will be vacuum-sealed inside the plastic so you can slide it out easily. Inside the box, you may find a small, plastic safety blade. Slide the blade down through the plastic carefully to open it. The mattress will open once it is outside the plastic. Sit back and watch your mattress expand and take its shape.

Once you unbox a mattress it slowly expands to expand completely. Most companies advise not to use the mattress until 24 hours after you’ve unboxed the bed to ensure the quality of their product is at its fullest potential when you sleep on it for the first time. However, if you relax, jump, or do whatever you want with your bed as soon as you received it will not cause any damage (until you are using it the right way) but will only speed up the expanding process.

This 24-hour recommendation is to ensure customer satisfaction and manufacturer guarantees.

Most of the mattresses can be put directly on the floor, as there are several benefits to it. However, you should check the down-side of it as well:

  • The setup of your bed can potentially void your mattress’s warranty.
  • Mold is also a potential issue: particularly in warm or humid environments
  • It restricts airflow around the mattress, which can cause it to feel uncomfortably warm
  • It makes it easier for insects and other pests to make themselves your new bedfellows.
  • It can increase the risk of exposure to dust particles and dust mites, particularly if the floor is not cleaned regularly.
  • It may make it more awkward to get in and out of bed.
