Caring for your TEMPUR® mattress

You are investing in TEMPUR® for the long term. Here are some practical tips to get the most from your mattress:

No turning required

All TEMPUR® mattresses are no turn! No heavy lifting is involved because you don't need to flip our mattresses over! Each model is constructed in layers so you sleep on the top side only. Advances in TEMPUR® technology have resulted in keeping maintenance to a minimum.

Beneath the QuickRefresh™ top you will find a second cover which comprises of an off-white fabric under layer with grey material side panels. Along the bottom edge of your mattress you will find another zip in grey. This enables you remove the complete mattress cover for airing or cleaning.

*Please note: for some TEMPUR® Hybrid Elite or Luxe mattresses, the second off-white/grey cover may not be washable but dry clean only. We always recommend you check the label stitched inside for care instructions.

Maintaining TEMPUR® material

Upon removal of the mattress cover you may find a thin layer of stocking type material. Do not remove this layer. It is an important part of your mattress.

Please do not attempt to wash, sponge or dry clean the mattress itself. Doing so will invalidate your product guarantee. There is a high possibility you will cause irreversible damage, destroying the benefits of comfort and support which the patented TEMPUR® material provides.

In the event after removing the cover there are signs of stains or soiling on the mattress surface, you can wipe it over carefully using clean water on a well wrung cloth (free from chemicals and detergents, and no wetter than a baby wipe). This may help to remove or reduce marks. Allow the mattress to air and dry thoroughly before replacing the cover. We recommend the use of a TEMPUR-FIT™ Mattress Protector to keep your bed clean and fresh.
