Comfortable, supportive mattresses are something most of us take for granted.
What’s the difference between Brand name and Non Brand?
Name brand mattresses come with years of backing and experience building mattresses. You spend a third of your time on the new mattress, go with someone you can trust. You’ve seen the ads featuring mattresses for amazingly low prices. If they seem too good to be true, they probably are. If you look at the tag, you’ll find that these mattresses are made by a company you’ve never heard of! Be wary of no name mattresses, Bed bug infestation is a real problem in our region. There’s no way to tell exactly what they’re made of or the type of construction they’ve been built with.
Are your mattresses new?
Yes. Period! We are a factory authorized retailer for the brands we carry. All of our mattress sets come brand new from the factory, and are shipped in the original factory packaging bags bearing new mattress tags.
I want to replace my existing mattress with one just like it, how do I match it up?
Mattress lines usually change every 12 to 18 months. So if your mattress is more than 12-18 months old you probably will not be able to find it. However there will always be a replacement that will be similar.
What are standard mattress sizes?

Can I purchase just the mattress?
Yes, It is fine to use a mattress by itself as long as it is on a solid surface like a platform bed. We recommend against putting a new mattress on an old foundation.
How long should my new mattress last for?
The Better Sleep Council advises consumers to buy the highest quality bedding they can afford, then replace old bedding every 8-10 years. After this many years, even the best bedding may no longer provide the comfort and support you deserve. Read more here.
Should I replace my foundation when purchasing a new mattress?
Yes! A good foundation (otherwise known as a “box-spring”) is as important as a good mattress! Not all manufacturers use the same type of foundations. It is critical for a new mattress to get the proper support from the foundation. Some manufacturers use a foundation that moves up and down as weight is applied to it (yielding). A yielding foundation acts much like a large shock absorb-er, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear. These types of foundations increase the life of the mattress. Sealy, Stearns & Foster, use these types of foundations. A mattress designed for a yielding foundation that is put on a non yielding foundation will not last as long. Some manufacturers use a foundation that has a solid surface and does not move up and down as weight is applied to it (non-yielding). A non-yielding foundation adds stability to the sleep set which will lessen the movement transferred between partners which will provide more undisturbed sleep. Putting a new mattress on an old foundation may also void your warranty.
What is “no flip”, mattress? 1-sided mattress? 2-sided mattress?
Many of today’s mattresses no longer require flipping. They are constructed to give years of support with no maintenance required. The top of the mattress is for sleeping on while the bottom is a base that will cover your foundation. We also carry an extensive luxurious 2 sided mattress selection.
How do I clean my mattress?
Keeping bedding clean is simple with the use of a protective mattress pad. Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If you must clean a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly! Don’t ever soak a mattress or foundation, and don’t use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress; these chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.
How and why do I rotate my bedding?
Select mattresses have two sides, which double their comfort and support life. We recommend that these mattresses be flipped on a regular basis. Mattresses contain many layers of upholstery padding to increase their comfort life and support performance. Body indentations can be a normal occurrence in new mattresses, which indicates that the upholstery layers are conforming to a person’s individual body contours. To help minimize body impressions, and to prolong that new bed feel year after year, mattresses should be turned occasionally throughout their life. For convenience, we’ve illustrated the best method.
How can I tell if I need a new mattress?
When was the last time you thought about your mattress? Many of us forget that our mattresses are the most utilized piece of furniture we own. In fact, if you sleep eight hours a night, in one year you’ll rack up 3,000 hours on your mattress. After 10 years, you’ll have logged 30,000 hours on the same bed. Listed below are a few hints that indicate it’s time to start thinking about renewing your sleep surface.
1. You bought your current mattress over eight years ago. The average life span of a quality mattress is eight to ten years. Mattresses older than that suffer from deteriorating comfort features and diminished support capabilities.
2. You wake up feeling more tired than when you went to sleep.
Most consumers wait too long to replace their mattresses. If you don’t wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated – or if you feel any pain or discomfort – you’ve definitely waited too long.
3. The couch feels more comfortable than your bed. Concentrate on the feel of your mattress. Do you feel coils or bumps? Your body needs a smooth comfortable sleep surface to get a regenerative night’s sleep. Your mattress should enable you to sleep through the night with minimal tossing and turning.
4. Your mattress looks like your grandmother’s mattress. Inspect your mattress regularly for sags and imprints. If your mattress appears uneven or worn and frayed, maybe its time to start shopping. The upholstery layers in all mattresses compress over time. For optimal performance, be sure to flip your mattress occasionally to extend its durability and renew its comfort. If you “inherited” your mattress from a family member or friend, chances are you need to replace it now.
5. You’ve taken your mattress for granted. Mattresses are the most used yet most ignored piece of furniture in the house. Pay attention to your mattress. Do you hear creaks and groans? Do you notice the surface sags or indents in certain areas and not in others? The condition of your mattress may come as a surprise, once you take a close look.
What is the best bed for a bad back (medical condition)?
We recommend that you ask your physician. With each medical condition and plan of treatment, your sleeping needs will vary. When a medical condition is involved, we think it is best to listen to the advice of your primary caretaker. After you consult with your physician, we will help you select a model that you and your physician have agreed upon. A mattress salesperson knows very little about medical conditions and should only help guide you to the type of mattress that you and your physician agree on.
How do I make sure I get adequate support in a sleep system?
A good mattress and foundation will support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same posture as when you are standing. Most mattresses use a support system made of coils while others use a core of foam (latex or visco). Almost all foam mattresses will provide good support. Coil support systems are a little harder to figure out which is best for you.
What role does the mattress play in producing higher quality sleep?
Optimizing the level of support the spine receives during the night is paramount to getting quality sleep. Studies show that when the correct amount of support is supplied, the spine remains aligned and a person can enjoy a thorough rest period for the entire night. However, if the spine is not aligned due to a non-supportive sleep surface, a person’s back muscles work throughout the night in an attempt to position the spine properly. As a result, they wake up feeling sore and un-rested.
