Latex Mattress Care and Maintenance
Lifting and Moving
Latex Mattresses are heavy, so generally it is better if two people can share the weight to make sure you always lift safely. Be especially careful not to tear the mattress cover or zip by placing undue pressure on the cover material. Grasp the mattress by the entire thickness and weight, never only by the handles. If sliding the mattress over the timber slats be careful not to catch splinters which can rip the mattress cover; and ensure that the zip ends do not damage any of the seen timber frame surfaces.

Mattress Cover Removal
To unzip the cover ensure the zip side of the mattress is facing up. Folding the top of the cover open, gently remove the latex mattress cores. To avoid damaging the latex, never lift them by the corners or edges as this can tear the latex. Roll the latex into a roll for lifting as it will be less likely to damage and easier to manage.
Never expose your latex mattress cores to direct sunlight; always keep them covered and indoors where there is good ventilation. Small areas of your latex cores can be spot-cleaned with cloth, dampened with warm water and mild detergent, but make sure that the latex is completely dry before installing it back inside the covering.
