Frequently asked questions


Does my mattress really come out of a box?

You better believe it! The Bed Boss mattresses are compressed and vacuumed sealed for shipping convenience.

How long should I wait before moving my mattress to my bedroom?

We recommend at least two hours before bringing the mattress into your living space.

How long does the bed take to return to normal shape?

Your mattress should be decompressed in about 24 hours. This can vary some with the temperature of the room. Warmer climates generally see shorter decompression times.

What can I do to speed up the process and sleep on my new mattress sooner?

You can encourage your mattress along by putting on the floor and dancing on it. (Walking works too. But dancing is more fun.)

What's the best way to unpack my new mattress?

Glad you asked! Unpack your bed in a well ventialted area, such as your garage or porch, and give it at least an hour. There can be a slight "new mattress" smell, but fresh air will allow it dissipate quickly.

Foundation and Support

What kind of support does my mattress need?

Support your new bed with a firm flat foundation, such as a foundation box, platform bed, or the floor.

What kind of box is best?

The flatter and firmer the better. Box springs are flexible, and this is perfect for an inner spring mattress. But memory foam beds fair better on the flattest and most stable surfaces.

Does my mattress come with a foundation?

No, the Bed Boss beds are sold mattress-only. But we do offer several foundation and adjustable beds to choose from here on our website.

Do you sell foundation boxes?

Yes! See our speciality foundations and adjustable beds here.

Where can I get a new foundation box?

Check out our lineup or visit your local mattress store who will have a variety to choose from. If you bought your Bed Boss mattress from a local retailer, ask for a special price on a solid foundation to go underneath. Mattress stores love to make a deal.

Can I just use my old box spring?

It depends. Remember, the firmer the support the better. If your box spring is dipping, sagging, or has any soft spots, then it would be best to replace it. If it is more than about 8 years old, it's probably time to get a new one anyway.


How can I get the most out of my mattress?

Your mattress from The Bed Boss doesn't require much special care. But there are a few things you can do to enjoy greater longevity.

Do I need to flip my mattress?

The Bed Boss mattresses have a single sleeping surface so there is no need to flip. But rotating you mattress every 3 months will keep it in tip top shape.

Rotate my mattress?

Yes, just spin it 180 degrees, positioning the head at the foot, or vice versa.


How should I care for the mattress cover?

Most of our mattresses feature removable zippered covers. This allows you to take it off, freshen it up, and put it back on in time for bed. If you have a Crown PT do not attempt to remove the cover, because it is glued to the foam core. Removing the pillowtop will damage your mattress.

Oh, no! I spilt something on my bed!

Not to worry. Most of our covers are removable and can be dry cleaned.

Can I put the cover in my washer?

We do not generally recommend using a household washing machine to clean your mattress cover. Several of our models have special quilted foam, and this can become bunched, or dislodged in a traditional washer. Take it to your favorite dry cleaner. If dry cleaning is not an option.... Many people have successfully washed their covers at home. If you give it a try, please use warm water on the GENTLE cycle. Dry on LOW or hang to dry. Any excess moisture in the foam could cause mildewing.

What mattress pad do you recommend?

The Bed Boss Preserve is an excellent choice for protecting your mattress from moisture. For extra cooling, check out the Cool Response Protector.

Will using a heated blanket hurt my mattress?

No. Your bed will be just fine under a toasty warm blanket. You may, however, notice that your mattress feels softer. But this change is temporary.
