When handling your new A.H. Beard mattress make sure you always carry it on its side and do not attempt to carry it on your own. If your mattress has handles do not use these for carrying, mattress handles are provided to assist with the positioning of your mattress on the base and are not load bearing.
Never bend your mattress; this will cause damage to your mattress edge and therefore do not tie to roof racks which may cause your mattress to fold. Similarly do not allow anyone to stand or jump on your mattress as misuse or abuse is not covered by the guarantee.
Rotate your mattress from end to end every month, this will even out the body signatures that develop as the upholstery settles, however, if the centre of the mattress remains unused especially on a king size the settling of the comfort materials will not occur and will feel and look different from your normal sleeping area.
Do not use an old base with your mattress, ensure your base is flat and even with plenty of ventilation for your mattress. If using a slat base or bedframe ensure the slats are secured and no more than 10cm apart and are supported with a centre support rail. Flexible slats should be convex in shape, but can lose their resiliency over time becoming concave causing irreparable damage to the mattress, please check slats regularly as mattress damage caused by inadequate slat support is not covered by the guarantee.
