Frequently Asked Questions about TEMPUR mattresses

When buying a new mattress, you are investing in your health, your comfort, and your ability to get a good night’s sleep. With an investment that significant, it’s important that you take time to make the right decision – and as we all know, the best decisions come from being well informed.

With that in mind, we thought we’d gather together some questions and answers that may help to make your decision that much easier. After all, we know how specialTEMPURmattress are. It’s time you did too.

Q. Where is the TEMPUR mattress made?

A. In the 1980s, NASA released to the public its pressure-absorbing material designed to help cushion and support astronauts during lift-off. Taking more than a decade to develop this design, two companies in Sweden and Denmark came together to create TEMPUR material for use in mattresses.

Utilising that design, TEMPUR launched in 1991, quickly finding success around the world. As demand grew, TEMPUR expanded into North America, building an R&D and engineering centre in Duffield, Virginia and a fabrication plant in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Meanwhile, in Denmark, the R&D facility and factory was extended considerably.

Today, all TEMPUR mattresses are manufactured either in the US or Denmark TEMPUR facilities. Manufacturing is not outsourced, which means standards remain as high today as they were when TEMPUR was first founded.

Q. What is the TEMPUR mattress made from?

A. One of the questions we often hear is, is TEMPUR latex or memory foam? While TEMPUR material is neither latex or memory foam, it is perhaps more like memory foam in the way that it behaves. However, it’s the construction of TEMPUR material that sets it apart.

TEMPUR material is made from billions of visco-elastic spherical shaped, open cells. These cells are designed to respond to the heat and weight of your body, meaning they shift and move to mould to your body’s exact contours. This not only provides the support you need, it also eliminates pressure points to allow blood to flow freely throughout the night. With less tossing and turning, you can enjoy a more comfortable night’s rest, and better quality sleep.

Q. Is TEMPUR memory foam?

A. While TEMPUR material may be compared to generic memory foam, it is in fact superior in many ways. So, what is thedifference between TEMPUR material and memory foam?

Design:One of the most important things to note about TEMPUR material is that it is composed using a secret formula. While competitors have tried to replicate it, none have been successful. The result? Not only is TEMPUR material developed from a NASA design, TEMPUR is the only mattress company to be certified by the International Space Foundation.

Production Value:Some competitors outsource their production, which can make it hard to monitor quality. TEMPUR manufactures its own products, keeping to the highest possible design and manufacturing standards at all times.

Comfort & Durability:Utilising an open-cell structure, TEMPUR material perfectly contours to the body. This allows it to adapt to each body type, with less than 3% rebound. It also allows for excellent durability, with each TEMPUR mattress guaranteed by a 10-year warranty.

Q. Are TEMPUR mattresses good for people with back pain?

A. Each TEMPUR mattress features an open-cell structure, which allows it to spread body weight more evenly, eliminating pressure points to offer a more comfortable night’s rest. When used in conjunction with the Adjustable Zero G bed base range, TEMPUR mattresses can help to reduce the pressure exerted on the spine, while working to relieve muscle tension.

While a TEMPUR mattress may help to alleviate your back pain, it’s recommended you seek the advice of a medical professional.

Q. Are TEMPUR mattresses hot to sleep on?

A. Because generic memory foam mattresses tend to ‘run hot’, we often get asked if TEMPUR mattresses suffer the same problem. However, thanks to the open cell structure utilised in the design of TEMPUR material, this allows for easy ventilation and dissipation of heat.

Q. How long does a mattress last?

A. As a big investment, it’s important to make sure your mattress will stand the test of time. So, how often should you change your mattress? It’s generally recommended you change your mattress every 10 years. However, you may find some mattresses don’t last that long, becoming lumpy and unsupportive long before the 10-year mark.

TEMPUR mattresses, however, are built to last. With a10-year full replacement guaranteeon all TEMPUR mattresses purchased directly from TEMPUR or an authorised retailer, you can be sure your mattress will offer the same level of comfort and support throughout that 10-year period.

Q. Where can I try the TEMPUR Mattress?

A. Finding the perfect mattress often means testing out the options. By visiting one of TEMPUR’s retail partners, you can do just that. Find your local TEMPUR stockisthere, then use thesetipson how to choose a mattress to find the right option for you.

Q. Can I sleep on my TEMPUR mattress straight away?

A. You can sleep on your mattress straight away. In fact, the more time you spend on your new mattress the better. Why? If you are used to a more traditional style of mattress, such as an innerspring mattress, your new TEMPUR mattress will initially feel quite different. The high level of support TEMPUR mattresses offer means your body may need time to adjust to the change.

By spending time in bed, reading, watching television, or simply relaxing, you can speed up that adjustment time. Either way, it shouldn’t take longer than a few weeks for your body to adjust to the feel of your new TEMPUR mattress, to start enjoying the exceptional comfort, support and pressure-relieving qualities that encourage a wonderful night’s sleep.

Mattress Care

Q. How do you clean the TEMPUR mattress?

A. Washing TEMPUR material prevents it from functioning as it should, which means it should not be washed, sponged or dry cleaned. If you’re wondering how to clean your mattress without washing it, here are some tips.

  • TEMPUR material features environmentally friendly bacterium-reducing components, which prevent bacterial and fungal growth, so the mattress itself needs little maintenance.
  • By placing the mattress on a ventilated bed base, it allows air to circulate freely and prevents moisture from accumulating.

The removable cover on your mattress can be removed and washed as needed. Note, some covers cannot be washed, so check the care instructions carefully .

Q. Can I wash my TEMPUR mattress cover?

A. While most TEMPUR mattress covers can be washed, some cannot. Check the label stitched inside the cover for care instructions on how to best care for your mattress cover. You will generally find older ‘Deluxe’ models and mattresses that have TEMPUR material embedded or quilted into the cover can be removed, but not washed. Instead, these covers should be aired to renew their freshness.

Q. Do I need a mattress protector?

A. TEMPUR mattresses feature a removable cover, which can be washed or aired as needed. However, if you choose to purchase a replacement or spare cover for your mattress, please contact us for a quotation.

Q. Is the TEMPUR mattress waterproof?

A. TEMPUR material is not waterproof. However, your mattress should remain dry and comfortable with your TEMPUR mattress protector in place. Waterproof and breathable, this mattress protector is made from natural fibres that breathe with the body. It also features an intelligent membrane that prevents your mattress from getting wet, which is the thinnest in the market.

Q. Which bed base is best?

A. Wondering whether you can put the TEMPUR mattress on an adjustable bed base? Or if you can you put a TEMPUR mattress on slats? The answer is yes – to both questions.

If you want an adjustable bed, you can opt for a TEMPUR mattress that is compatible with our adjustable bed range, allowing you to find the most comfortable position for sleep, or for reading or watching television in bed.

You may also place a TEMPUR mattress on a slatted base, however we recommend using a solid base from the TEMPUR bed base range.

Q. Do I need to turn the TEMPUR mattress?

A. Wondering whether you should flip your mattress and how often? While other mattresses may need to be flipped or turned regularly to ensure they remain comfortable, TEMPUR mattresses do not. TEMPUR material is designed to return to its original shape, day after day, year after year. For that reason, there is no reason to flip or turn TEMPUR mattresses.

Q. Can I use an electric blanket with my TEMPUR mattress?

A. We do not recommend the use of electric blankets or hot water bottles when sleeping on a TEMPUR mattress. Because TEMPUR material responds to your body heat, an electric blanket or hot water bottle will prevent it from doing this and properly contouring to your shape. It may also cause irreversible damage to the pressure-relieving properties of your mattress. If your hot water bottle leaks, to wet, stain or damage your mattress, it will invalidate your manufacturer’s guarantee.

If you think you still need extra warmth, consider an over electric blanket rather than an under blanket. Ensure that it is less than 10 years old and in good working order.

How Long Do Mattresses Last? The Results May Shock You!

Mattresses are pretty expensive — one quick glance at our buyer’s guide will confirm this fact. This is why many people do not replace them – not even after many years of use.

They do not want to spend a lot of money on a new one. Besides, now you can delay the process of buying a new one if you do an excellent job at maintaining your existing one.So, how often should you replace your mattress?

It doesn’t matter which type of bed you have. Most of them are ready for replacement within ten years to ensure a good night’s rest (old mattresses can hurt your sleep quality). Besides, it can last beyond ten years on average, if the owners maintain it properly.

Also, many different factors affect a bed’s lifespan. You can extend its life expectancy by following a few easy steps in the text below. We prepared and wrote down some tips to boost its longevity.

Buying a new mattress is a big investment, and the decision about which one to choose shouldn’t be taken lightly. It’s something you’ll spend a third of your life in for the next 10 years (as long as you choose the right one of course).

We know that TEMPUR ® very different from the conventional mattresses that are available today. So to help you decide if a TEMPUR ® mattress could be right for you we’ve collected all of our most commonly asked questions together..

Q: How is the TEMPUR ® mattress different?
A:The one thing that all conventional (spring, waterbed, memory foam) mattresses have in common is that they force the user to conform to them. With TEMPUR ® , the mattress actually conforms to the body.

Q: But why is this better?
A:By conforming to your body, the TEMPUR ® mattress eliminates virtually all pressure points and spreads body weight evenly.

Q: Can I try it out before I decide to buy it?
A:YES! With our 100 night trial you can try out a TEMPUR ® mattress from any of our current collections listed online with the exception of products found in the Outlet section. (Unless indicated otherwise, mattresses listed in Outlet are excluded from our extended home trial.) We are confident you will love your new bed, but if you change your mind, simply get in touch and we will arrange to collect your order from you. Currently returns from a UK Mainland address are free, In the event this service is chargeable, the cost would be £72.00. We recommend you retain both your packaging and old mattress until you are certain TEMPUR ® is the right sleep solution for you. Please see our Returns Policy for further details.

What about the practical aspects.

Q: Do I need to turn the TEMPUR ® mattress?
A:No, in fact the TEMPUR ® mattress should never be turned.

Q: TEMPUR ® mattresses have removable covers. How do I look after them?
A:One of the advantages of owning a TEMPUR ® mattress from our TEMPUR ® current collections* is that all models have removable washable covers. In all cases you can unzip, remove and machine wash the whole cover at 60°C. (This task is easier with two people.) In addition our Elite and Luxe models have been designed with QuickRefresh™ tops. This means you only need unzip, remove and wash the top layer which you directly sleep on. It is important when you launder your mattress cover that you always follow the manufacturer’s instructions which can be found on a label stitched inside.

Should you wish to purchase a replacement or spare cover for your mattress in the future, please contact us for a quotation. We will need to know the exact model and size you purchased to ensure you receive the correct one. We also recommend the use of a TEMPUR-FIT™ Mattress Protector to keep your bed nice and fresh.

*Because we are always looking to improve our products, TEMPUR ® owners of older models should check the care instructions of their mattress carefully. Some models such as the TEMPUR ® Celebrity 31 could have covers which cannot be removed or washed.

As a general rule of thumb, if your mattress has TEMPUR ® Material embedded or quilted into the cover (this applies to the majority of older ‘Deluxe’ models,) while it may be removed for airing, it is not washable. Any subsequent washing will invalidate your guarantee.

Q: But why is this better?
A:By conforming to your body, the TEMPUR ® mattress eliminates virtually all pressure points and spreads body weight evenly.

Q: Can I use an electric blanket with my TEMPUR ® mattress?
A:We would not recommend using an electric blanket with a TEMPUR ® mattress as the mattress works best with your natural body heat, so you may not feel the optimum support if an electric blanket is used. However, if you would still prefer to use an electric blanket, we would suggest an over blanket rather than an under blanket. An over blanket will be perfectly safe to use and will not damage the mattress.

Q: Can the TEMPUR ® pillow be washed?
A:The actual TEMPUR ® pillow, made from TEMPUR ® Material, cannot be washed. Contact with water or cleaning fluids will damage it. However most TEMPUR ® pillows have a removable washable cover. This item can be laundered in accordance with the washing instructions found on the label sewn inside the pillow cover.

*Please note for older models such as the TEMPUR ® Deluxe Pillow, if the cover cannot be removed do not attempt to wash it. There is a high possibility you will cause irreversible damage, destroying the benefits which the patented TEMPUR ® Material provides.

Q: So, how does it work? What’s it made from?
A:The TEMPUR ® pressure relieving material is composed of billions of visco-elastic spherical shaped, open cells. The cells respond to your body temperature and weight then shift and re-organise their position to mould to the exact contours of your body. It becomes softer in warmer areas (where your body is making the most contact with the surface) and remains firmer in cooler areas (where less body contact is being made). Due to the removal of pressure, blood is able to flow freely throughout the night, making you toss and turn less – in other words – you get a better night’s sleep.

Q: Won’t it make me feel hot?
A:We get this question often, but in fact, sleeping warm on a TEMPUR ® mattress is not an issue that our owners raise frequently. Our mattresses are designed to respond to your body temperature, which activates their ability to conform to your body, offering support and reducing pressure points. It is worth noting that with the improved support and reduced pressure points on your body, sleeping on our mattresses can help increase circulation, so you may find you need lighter bedding. If you feel warmer, try using a lower tog duvet, breathable bedding and keep your room well ventilated.

® mattress and pillow have been clinically proven to reduce tossing and turning from an average 100 times during the night, to around 17 times. Testing by the Institution for Clinical & Physiological Research at the Lillhagen Hospital in Gothenburg, Sweden of 23,000 patients for a period corresponding to approximately 8 years of clinical and inhome use concluded that the patients suffered from less pain and experienced greatly enhanced and deeper sleep.

Q: I’ve seen references to NASA associated with TEMPUR ® . What’s the connection?
A:The TEMPUR ® Material was originally developed in the early 1970’s at NASA’s Ames Research Centre, to relieve the pressure build up from the G-force experienced by astronauts during lift off. TEMPUR ® scientists realised the enormous potential of this material and began experiments in the early 1980’s to perfect it for consumer use. After millions of pounds in research, the TEMPUR ® Material we know today was perfected. As a result TEMPUR ® was presented with an award by NASA in May 1998.

® mattress can reduce toss and turn by up to 80%.

FACT:
Many people believe that waterbeds give you almost perfect support by allowing your body to ‘float’ in a natural position. In fact, due to displacement the waterbed creates what experts call the “hammock effect.” This is an unnatural and unhealthy curve of the spine resulting from improper support. The TEMPUR ® mattress allows your spine to rest in its natural position, giving you optimum sleeping posture and comfort.

FACT:
Fully sprung mattresses covered by quilted thickly padded ticking mean you are lying on row after row of coiled sprung metal. This often creates pressure points that can cause painful joints and an aching back. The visco-elastic material in the TEMPUR ® mattress moulds to your body, adjusting to your body weight, and distributing it evenly, reducing pressure and providing maximum support. Our TEMPUR ® Hybrid Collection incorporates Precision™ Micro Coils in the base layer for those customers who prefer a faster response, but want the benefits that TEMPUR ® Material brings too.

FACT:
Several copy visco mattresses are available today, but they are not visco-elastic and do not have the 85kg density of the TEMPUR ® Material or its durability of 10 years. The TEMPUR ® open cell visco-elastic material moulds to the exact contours of your body, giving you maximum support and pressure relief where you need it most.

7 Signs You Should Replace Your Mattress

A good night’s rest is crucial to your health and well-being, yet millions of Americans suffer from lack of sleep. TheSleep in Americastudy by the National Sleep Foundation (NSF) found that 75% of adults have problems sleeping well. The study showed that 60% of respondents experienced daytime sleepiness that interfered with activities, caused work absences, or mistakes on the job. While medical conditions may be responsible for some instances of bad sleep, it might be your mattress that’s the issue. Review these seven signs that it’s time to replace your mattress to see if your bed is to blame for inadequate sleep.

#1 Your mattress is 7-10 years old

Research has found that mattresses have a life-span of roughly eight years, but this varies by manufacturer, mattress type, whether you sleep alone or with a partner, and how you sleep. If you’re a larger person, your mattress will likely wear out faster than manufacturer guidelines suggest.

Mattresses were not designed to last forever, and excessive wear and tear will age a product faster. Inferior products don’t last as long, yet even the highest-quality mattress has a maximum lifespan and will eventually need replacing. If your mattress is old, that’s the first sign you may need a new one.

#2 The mattress is saggy

If there’s a dent in your mattress in the shape of your body, that’s a signal that your mattress is overly worn. Sagging can occur with almost any mattress material (aside from waterbeds) and can be observed under your sleep area, at the edges, or both. If your mattress has springs, they can break down and sag.

Fiber, foam, and pillowtop materials all break down over time and the deeper the sag in your mattress, the more discomfort you’ll likely experience. Saggy mattresses can disrupt sleep and cause aches and pains. If your memory foam mattress core has softened, you may feel the sag as a “hammock” effect.

#3 Your spine isn’t aligned when you sleep

No matter how old (or new) your mattress, if it doesn’t offer proper support and alignment, you won’t get optimal sleep. For back or stomach sleepers, your spine’s natural S curve should be evident when you’re lying on your mattress. If it’s flattened or exaggerated, the mattress isn’t aligning your spine properly.

For side sleepers, your spine should be straight from neck to bottom if you’ve got proper support. A yardstick or level can confirm adequate alignment. A good pillow may correct minor issues, but if you can slide a hand in the gap between body and mattress, it’s a red flag that you might need a different mattress.

#4 Your mattress is uncomfortable

Knowing whether your mattress is comfortable sounds like common sense, but many people adjust to discomfort. If you get better sleep on a hotel mattress or a friend’s guest room, your home bed might not be comfortable enough. A bed may seem comfortable in a showroom but then doesn’t perform well at home.

The upper part of your mattress consists of “comfort layers” that should support your body and provide pressure relief. Comfort layers break down over time resulting in poor sleep and body aches but in some cases, your mattress choice might have been faulty from the start, and you need to replace it.

#5 You wake stiff and sore

Poor sleep can contribute to chronic back pain. If you wake up stiff and sore every day, your mattress could be part of the problem. If your back pain is worse when you wake but subsides when you stretch and move around, that’s a sign that the mattress is causing or contributing to your pain.

A firm mattress may not be the answer. A study from the Kovacs Foundation in Mallorca found that medium-firm mattresses provided better comfort for chronic low-back pain. Experts recommend sleep testing different types of mattresses before buying if you suffer pain while sleeping or when waking.

#6 Worsening allergies or asthma

If it’s not allergy season and there’s no alternate explanation for an uptick in allergy or asthma symptoms, your mattress might be the culprit.Slateinterviewed an expert on dust mites that said your mattress is a “crime scene in terms of how it gets inoculated with [dust] mites” over time.

The protein in dust mite feces may cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks and so can the dust that accumulates in your mattress. Vacuuming, steaming, and flipping your mattress might reduce dust and mites to ease your symptoms. If these steps don’t help, a new mattress might be the solution.

#7 You gained or lost weight (or added a co-sleeper)

For those that experience a significant gain or loss in weight over the life cycle of your mattress, the change might alter the effectiveness of your mattress. A Canadian study linked both inadequate and excessive sleep to weight gain so how you sleep and what you weigh are intermingled.

Heavier body types trigger more wear and tear on springs, foam, cushioning and mattress components. Also, if you were a solo sleeper but now have a partner in your bed, your mattress might not offer adequate sleep surface or support for the extra weight. That means it’s time for a new mattress.

Become an informed consumer

If you suspect you need a new mattress, do your homework, and educate yourself before you buy. Understand the lingo and gimmicks employed by mattress firms so that you get the product you need that fits your budget and gives you the best night’s sleep. There’s no prescription for which mattress will best fit your unique needs.

Look for a mattress that offers adequate support for spinal alignment. Comfort is subjective – it’s how a bed feels to you. You might find a firmer mattress superior to a softer one or vice-versa. Mattress selection is highly personal and should be your preference at the cross-section of proper alignment, support, and comfort.

How Long Do Mattresses Last?

Mattresses aren’t exactly cheap, most people replace them very infrequently and consider buying a new one either a chore or a burden. It’s easy to delay or prolong this process simply by taking proper care of whichever type you own. As a general rule, most should be replaced within ten years for best results in sleep and health, however, the average life of a mattress can last beyond ten years or more if taken care of properly. While it is true that how long one lasts depends on different factors, you can easily increase its life expectancy by undertaking a small number of simple steps. Here is a look at a few of the factors that can decide how long should a mattress last, and possible ways to increase its lifespan:

Table of Contents

1. The Type

What type do you have? For instance, is it air, innerspring, memory foam or latex? Each one has its own life expectancy; air and innerspring being the shortest, memory foam being mid length, while latex types are known to last the longest.

  • Air mattresses will over time either develop leaks or generally become less effective at retaining air pressure. If they have a built-in pump that becomes faulty, this too can lead to premature replacement. Overall, the average air mattress life expectancy is placed at five years.
  • Spring mattresses are good for sharing couples who like a springy and bouncy surface, but unfortunately, due to the inner core being thin metal wire, this type does tend to sag and lose its support even if flipped and rotated regularly. Even ones which have been well cared for will most likely need replacing within 7-8 years.
  • Memory foam mattresses are less prone to sagging but not invincible. They too require rotating, and foam does eventually lose its support but after a long while. This type should be good for at least ten years if kept ventilated, clean, and rotated.
  • Latex mattresses are the creme de la creme and tick all the boxes for quality and longevity. The naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial properties add to the durable nature of latex rubber foam to combine a core which can last up to 15 years.

2. Regular Cleaning

Another important factor which determines mattress life expectancy is to do with cleaning.Howdo you clean it? Do you clean itregularly? Do you give it to aprofessionalcleaner? It’s essential that you clean your mattress regularly to prolong the life. If you do not, it won’t last long at all. This is due to the invisible bacteria, mildew, and mattress mold that can slowly eat away at the materials involved. Moreover, it may be better if you could have it cleaned professionally from time to time, as mattresses are home to bacteria and germs in plenty, which might not get adequately cleansed with household cleaning products and methods.

3. Amount of Use

As you can imagine, anything that is used more will last less. However, there are two things that need to be kept in mind. Whichever type you own, it wouldn’t last as long in cases of extreme use, for example sharing couples who use for 10+ hours per day, and secondly on the other hand, if it has been left unused and uncleaned for prolong periods of time. Mattresses that are moderately used, where people sleep on it for around 7-8 hours a day, and then cleaned regularly are the ones that have the longest life.

4. The Cleaning Products

The question of how long do mattresses last really is to do with many supporting factors, but quite often depends on the cleaning methods used to clean them. For instance, in case of blood stains, you might have to use hydrogen peroxide to get rid. Too much of this chemical (and other heavy duty stain removers) would lead to a reduction of mattress life as these are not made to withstand such chemical uses.

5. Proper Precautions

It is always nice to have kids around the house. However, if your kids want to use your bed as a trampoline, it seriously isn’t a good idea. You would rather have them play elsewhere since this can seriously damage your bed. Imagine you have an innerspring, the springs will become too soft and compressed in no time at all and will leave you with a creaky and sagging surface. Additionally, whether it’s latex or memory foam, soon there will be indentations which are beyond repair. To prolong its life, you can also rotate and flip it from time to time, but that’s only if it’s double-sided and permits you to do so. You could perform this every few months for the duration of its life, which will significantly improve how long a mattress can last.

When Do You Know You Cannot Use Your Mattress?

Usually, mattresses that are over seven years old do not provide the comfort and support you need on the bed. Once you see there are signs of the surface and support wearing out, or you’re feeling uncomfortable in the bed when you are sleeping on it, you would be better off changing it. Some of the common visible signs of wearing are sagging, holes and tearing. If you cannot get a full night’s sleep and feel that you’re having a better slumber elsewhere than your bed, you need to start looking for a replacement.

You might buy the most expensive mattress, but if you do not care for it properly, it might not even last ten years. On the other side, ones which are taken care of correctly are known to last more than 15 years.
