MATTRESS GUARANTEE AND WARRANTY
Different warranty and guarantee periods apply to different products. Please refer to the specific product page or speak to a sales consultant for more information.
MATTRESS WEIGHT LIMITATION
Upon purchase of your goods, please ensure you are in agreement with the weight limitation of your selected mattress and or bed-set. Purchasing a mattress or bed set not suited to support your weight will compromise the longevity of your purchase. This will result in additional costs being incurred.
A mattress protector not only ensures your mattress is kept in a hygienic and allergen free condition, it also validates your warranty and guarantee. Failing to protect your mattress with a waterproof mattress protector will invalidate your guarantee and warranty. Should your mattress have unsanitary marks/ stains or signs of abuse, the guarantee and warranty will be invalidated.
Regularly rotating and or flipping your mattress will lengthen its lifespan. Failing to regularly rotate and or flip your mattress will invalidate the guarantee and warranty
Body impressions is a natural occurrence with responsive foam layers. Similarly, to wearing a shoe for some time, your mattress starts to gently conform to the shape of your body as the insole would start to conform to the shape of your foot. Our foam layers are designed to be responsive, conforming and adjusting to your sleeping body. Body impressions up to 4cm is a normal occurrence on any mattress and not a structural defect. Due to normal body impressions of up to 4cm, it is highly likely for a slight ridge to form in the center of your mattress. This is a normal occurrence. The manufacturer will only inspect the mattress if body impressions are deeper than 4cm.
Should you choose to only purchase a mattress and not a base from us, please ensure that your existing base has a solid supportive surface. Should your existing base be slatted, please ensure the gaps in between each slat are not wider than 30mm. Should your base have slats with gaps in between, wider than 30mm, the base needs to be fitted with a solid 5mm hardboard. Failure to ensure the above will invalidate your guarantee and warranty.
Linen and accessories
Due to hygiene reasons, no mattress protectors and pillows will be exchanged or refunded. Please take note of the care instructions as listed on the mattress protector and pillow packaging.
