Additional information

If there is a notable difference in weight or height between you and your partner, it is advisable to rotate your mattress more frequently. This regular rotation helps in distributing the fillings evenly, maintaining a balanced wear across the mattress, and preventing it from developing dips or sagging on one side. By taking this proactive step, you can ensure a more comfortable and durable sleeping surface for both you and your partner.

If you sleep alone on the mattress, it is advisable to rotate it at least every three months. By doing so, you evenly distribute the fillings throughout the mattress, ensuring that both sides receive equal wear. This rotation also helps prevent the mattress from developing a dip or sag on one side, promoting a more comfortable and supportive sleep surface for you.

If you’re wondering whether you should rotate a mattress primarily used by guests, the answer depends on the frequency of its usage. If you use the mattress occasionally, you won’t need to rotate it as frequently as you would with a regularly used mattress. In such cases, you could consider rotating it once every six months or even once a year, depending on the frequency of usage. By rotating the mattress, you can ensure more even wear and extend its lifespan.


Q: Do I need to flip my mattress?

A: This depends on the design of your mattress as some are designed to be one-sided, meaning they should not be flipped.

Q: How can I determine if my mattress is double-sided?

A: To determine if your mattress is double-sided, start by checking the label attached to it. If the label indicates “no turn” or “rotate only,” it is likely a single-sided mattress. Another way to tell is by inspecting for the presence of a pillow-top or attached comfort layer on one side. If the mattress has a pillow-top or attached comfort layer on just one side, it is probably single-sided. However, if both sides of the mattress have the same padding and are suitable for sleeping, then it is a double-sided mattress.

Q:Can I flip a mattress on my own?

A: We always recommend having two or more people when flipping a mattress as they can be quite heavy. Here are some simple tips to follow:

  1. Don’t attempt to flip it by yourself! Always ask someone for assistance. It’s important to have another person help you with the task.
  2. Take advantage of the mattress turning handles, if available. The design of the handles aims to provide a better grip and facilitate easier manoeuvring of the mattress.
  3. Keep in mind that rotating your mattress from end to end is also necessary, not just flipping it over. This helps ensure even wear and extends the mattress’s lifespan.
  4. If flipping and rotating seem too overwhelming to do all at once, you can divide the tasks into different days. Rotate the mattress on one day and then flip it over on another day.

By following these tips, you can successfully flip your heavy mattress and maintain its longevity and comfort. Remember, having someone assist you is crucial for safety and ease during the process.

Remember, a well-maintained mattress means better support for your body and a more restful slumber. So don’t forget to mark your calendar and repeat this process every few months.
