Everything you need to know about Tempur® mattress toppers – answered by our bed experts
Offering an extra top layer of luxurious comfort and support to your existing mattress, Tempur® mattress toppers can be a fantastic way of giving your mattress a new lease of life.
Here are a few reasons as to why the UK loves Tempur® mattress toppers:
Engineered from NASA approved Tempur® foam, a form of viscoelastic polyurethane foam, Tempur® mattress toppers are designed to absorb motion and encourage your body to align in the most natural and comfortable position. Evenly contouring to the body, thus alleviating pain in the shoulders, hips, lower back, and spine, a Tempur® mattress topper is a fantastic investment when looking to achieve a great night’s sleep.
What are the benefits of using a Tempur mattress topper?
If used in the correct way, in addition to extending the lifespan of your mattress, a Tempur topper will add comfort to your existing mattress and aid a good night’s sleep, thus offering health benefits.
Can I use my current mattress with my new Tempur® mattress topper?
Tempur® memory foam mattress toppers can be placed on top of any mattress, in good condition, to provide Tempur® comfort and give you a better night’s sleep. It is important to note that performance of your topper will be affected by the quality of your mattress underneath. Therefore, if your mattress is sagging, makes a lot of noise, has an unpleasant odour, or leaves you feeling unrefreshed each morning, it is advisable to buy a new one. If that is the case then you can view our Tempur mattress collection or our full range of mattresses for inspiration.
Does my Tempur topper need to be a certain thickness?
Everyone’s sleep preferences vary. Most mattress toppers range from 2-4 inches (5-10cm). The thicker the topper, the more you will feel a difference. Tempur® mattress toppers offer 2 ¾” (7cm) an excellent depth for providing luxurious cushioning and comfort.
Can I sleep on my Tempur mattress topper straight away?
Although it might take 48 hours for your Tempur® mattress topper to fully expand, you can sleep on it at once.
Do I need to rotate my Tempur mattress topper?
Tempur mattress toppers are reversible, meaning you can sleep on either side. However, there is no need to regularly flip your topper over. Occasionally rotating your topper head to foot may help dual sleepers to keep even comfort and support.
What is the difference between a mattress protector and a mattress topper?
Mattress protectors are designed to prolong the life of your mattress by keeping it fresh, hygienic and stain free. Mattress toppers supply an extra layer of cushioning comfort to your bed.
Do I still need a mattress protector if I have a Tempur mattress topper?
We always recommend using a mattress protector in addition to your mattress/mattress topper. The topper should be placed next to the mattress with the protector over the top to help extend the lifetime of your bed.
Do Tempur mattress toppers come with a guarantee?
Yes! Tempur products are designed with longevity in mind. As such, Tempur mattress toppers come with a 10-year guarantee, meaning you can be confident in your purchase.
Can I wash my Tempur mattress topper?
Tempur® material should never become wet. To help keep your topper clean and hygienic, it has a soft, fabric zip removable cover that should be washed at 60ºC.
Can Tempur® mattress toppers be recycled?
The 10-year guarantee means your Tempur mattress topper will need replacing less often. When it is time to buy a new one, the polyurethane foam can be cleaned and shredded and used in other products such as carpet underlay, car seats and insulation panels.
