Mattress Care Guide
YOUR NEW SHIRE MATTRESS
Congratulations on the Delivery of your new Shire Bed’s Mattress, a National Bed Federation Award Winning Company.
The Artisan Range has been handcrafted by our highly skilled team in our Yorkshire factory so you Never Lose Sleep Again.
We create every mattress individually to order for your personal satisfaction.
Your Artisan mattress has a large number individual pocket springs and deep layers of fillings so is Heavy and we always recommend that 2 people should lift or move your mattress.
The handles are there to assist you in turning and rotating your mattress but not to be used for lengthy carrying. Once you have unwrapped your new mattress we recommend you have it in a well ventilated room as the natural fillings do have a slight odour which will dissipate over the first couple of days.
Your Artisan Range Mattress is always handmade and therefore may vary by plus or minus 2cm this is well within National Industry standards. During delivery your mattress can contract but over the first few days in your home will relax and return to normal size and feel.
Some of our Artisan range mattresses are hand tufted, we do this to ensure that the natural layers of luxury fillings remain in place. Occasionally a tuft can snap during transit if this unusual event was to happen then please contact your retailer to arrange a repair.
Never fold or roll your mattress as this can cause damage.
Do not jump on your bed as this could cause damage to the springs and damage your base.
All our Artisan range mattresses are 100% safe to use with an electric blanket but may change the feel of the mattress.
How to care for your new Shire Bed mattress
A single sided mattress like a pillowtop or non-turn mattress only needs rotating.
A double sided mattress needs both turning and rotating.
