The RoomPlace Mattress Q&A:

Periodically, we will highlight a Q&A about mattresses and the options available from The RoomPlace. Visit one of our 22 furniture and mattress store locations today and speak to a mattress expert!  Or, post your questions here and a mattress expert will respond.

Question: What can I expect with my new mattress?


Give it Time:  It usually takes 3 to 4 weeks to properly break in a new mattress. We recommend that you sleep on your new mattress for at least 20-25 nights. This will allow your body to adjust to your new mattress.

Proper Structural Support:  Lack of proper support can cause structural damage that may void your warranty. Queen and larger sized mattresses and foundations require the use of a frame with a rigid center support with legs or hardwood cross slats. Please read your warranty for details.

Keep Your Mattress Clean:  If your mattress becomes stained or unsanitary at any time, it may void both your warranty and satisfaction guarantee.

New Mattress Scent:   New product odors are common and not just in mattresses. Our mattresses are made per order and packaged in a sealed plastic bag immediately after production. When the sealed plastic bag is first opened you will notice a scent that comes from the new materials, foams and/or fiberfill in the new mattress. The scent is sometimes unpleasant, but not harmful and should dissipate within a few days. To help speed up the process you should air out your new mattress prior to putting on your mattress pad and sheets.
