Help and Advice

Narrow staircase. Will my mattresses fit up the stairs? What is a Zip and Link?

Narrow staircase? Had trouble delivering large items in the past? Don’t despair! You definitely don’t need to settle for a flimsy mattress in a box. We take pride in our craft and have been delivering mattresses for a very long time. We use a specialist company that specializes in two-man delivery to your room of choice. Their trained team will walk through your house to ensure it’s all safe to proceed without damaging your house. 

If you ordered a super king size mattress and you still have some doubts about access, give us a call on 020 3927 7777 and let us ease your mind. Our trained team will ask relevant questions and provide practical advice on getting the mattress to where it needs to be. 

Where access is so severely affected (loft bedrooms, spiral stair cases, etc) you may choose to have your super king size mattress delivered as a Zip & Link. This bespoke solution has many advantages and will most certainly fit where a full-size mattress failed. This may be particularly important for customers buying mattresses containing higher spring counts as they are progressively thicker and heavier. 

It’s worth pointing out that Zip & Link mattresses can be easier to maintain in the long term, and as a result can often last longer than their full-size cousins. They are also much easier to move without specialist assistance if you plan on relocating in the near future.

How often should I change my mattress?

Asking this question is akin to asking how often one should change their car. The time to change a mattress is when it’s no longer comfortable. Whether this is due to a change in your lifestyle; physiological changes in your body, medical conditions or injuries; hygiene and accidental damage; or if you can invest more into your sleep and want an upgrade, you will know exactly when it is time to replace it. Plain and simple. 

How do I make my mattress last longer?

By investing in a better mattress (in which is double sided) and following the simple advice below you will sleep better for longer, get more value from your mattress, and reduce your carbon footprint by saving the environment from unnecessary waste.

  1. Invest in the best mattress you can buy at the time. You can’t spend what you don’t have, but a double sided properly made mattress is something you should invest in like as it will significantly impact you day to day well-being.
  2. Always purchase a mattress protector (or two) to mitigate most of the accidental wear and tear and promote better hygiene. It’s great to have a spare for when you need to wash one, you can instantly protect your mattress with the other.
  3. Consider a mattress topper. These are great at the beginning of the mattress lifecycle as they mitigate a lot of wear and tear, and any possible issues with uneven settlement of fillers inside the mattress itself as it is bedding in.
  4. Always adhere to the manufacturer’s mattress maintenance instructions, and if there isn’t any, use common sense. You can flip and rotate a double-sided mattress periodically to significantly extend its lifespan.

Are your products sustainable and do you recycle? 

Recycling waste is very important, but it is not a true solution to our planet’s environmental crisis; it’s more of a crutch. Equally, substituting plastics with biodegradable plant-based materials is not sustainable as it diverts from food production and with our massively growing world population, you don’t want to make a decision between a disposable paper cup and dinner. Building good products that last and then re-using them is currently our simplest and best way forward. As an ethical manufacturer we founded our business on this philosophy and continually work with our suppliers and distribution network to ensure we all exercise our corporate and social responsibility. For example, our supplier of Egyptian cotton fabric is extremely environmentally friendly in their production process. We build mattresses that last longer and use efficient planning to avoid waste. Mattresses that come back as part of the trial and are in good condition can also be donated to the needy to help give back to the community. Our delivery routes are planned very carefully by our delivery partner and built to ensure as little energy loss and pollution as possible. Goods are all made here in the UK and most all of our fillers are supplied locally, which means they are produced to the highest ethical standards. We use recycled products wherever possible within the mattress, i.e. the steel spring units, polyester pad in our entry level mattresses, and we reuse any recycling plastic any packaging that comes our way. As a last resort, we recycle what’s left using responsible service providers. 

Overheating at night? 

If you can get your hands on a mattress using wool fillers, it will greatly improve your sleep. Wool is a fantastic material for regulating body temperature. If changing your mattress is not an option, make sure you are using a wool topper and cotton sheets. Also look into the tog count on your duvet. Use a lighter summer duvet if you get too hot and switch with seasons as needed. Aside from using appropriate breathable materials for your bedding, try not to eat for a couple hours before going to sleep, make sure you hydrate more during the day, open the window or consider using a fan.
