Rolling a Memory Foam Mattress
For transportation purposes, many memory foam mattresses are rolled and compressed using a vacuum to suck out the air. Rather than using a vacuum, we use an innovative compressor machine which compresses the mattress as it is being rolled.
Your memory foam mattress is compressed to approximately 25% of its original size using our manufacturing machinery. Our manufacturing process is carefully tested to ensure that absolutely no damage is caused during compression.
The Benefits of a Rolled Mattress
Great for home delivery. Rolling a mattress ensures a smoother transition from our warehouse into your home. If you live close by to one of our retail outlets, you can collect your rolled mattress, pack it into your car and drive away with it the very same day. This is a very popular choice for many customers as it cuts the delivery time dramatically. As you are able to collect the mattress yourself, there is no need to wait in for your mattress to be delivered which means you can enjoy a great night’s sleep sooner.
A rolled mattress also makes it easier for our deliverymen. Compressing the mattress means there is less chance of it being damaged in transit, because not only will it be easier for our deliverymen to handle the mattress, there is less surface area exposed too.
Improves the performance of your memory foam mattress. The performance of a foam sleeping surface actually improves after the first few months due to foam cell structure becoming less resilient and slightly softer. The short time that the mattress is compressed will actually speed up this process, improving the feel of the foam, and allowing the most comfortable sleeping surface from the first night.
We would not however, recommend keeping your mattress rolled for longer than a two month period, as we cannot guarantee the integrity of a product which has been rolled for longer than this. Please also be reminded that we urge you to check over your product as soon as you receive it so that you have the opportunity to contact us should there be any discrepancies.
If you are still unsure about the rolling process or have any questions you can contact our sleep experts on 0330 0080377 who will be happy to offer advice and guidance in your decision to purchase a memory foam mattress. For more information about rolled mattresses, our recent blog post answers concerns surrounding rolled mattresses and if they differ to non-rolled mattresses in comfort and quality.
If you order a memory foam mattress with us and would prefer that it is not rolled for delivery, simply ask our sleep experts to note your preference when ordering. We are more than happy to accommodate your request and deliver your mattress flat.
