We actually recommend that you wait for a day or two before you start sleeping on your Nectar mattress. So why can’t you sleep on your mattress right away? The answer is a little more complicated than you might expect, but rest assured that time is well spent to expand your mattress.
We use machines that vacuum seal our mattresses at over 1000 pounds a square inch. That’s so we can ship it cost effectively AND quickly. It’s how we make sure that you can get your mattress in a timely manner without breaking the bank. That being said, it also means that your mattress might need a little time to decompress after arriving at your house. You know how after you take a long trip you need a day or two to unwind and feel like yourself? That’s exactly what your mattress is going through.
There are a couple of different factors that go into how long it takes your mattress to expand. First, air pressure is a big factor. If you’re living in a location that is high in pressure, it may take a bit longer to get it into full shape. Humidity and the natural ventilation in your room also can affect the length of time it takes. The better your ventilation the quicker you can use the mattress. So how do you know when it’s ready to sleep on?
After you unpack your mattress, you’ll notice that it almost immediately starts to decompress. It’s important not to sleep on it until you can measure out its thickness to at least eleven inches. While it can be tempting to sleep on it before then, it’s crucial to the mattress design and materials that you hold off until it’s ready. That ensures that you get a great mattress that’s going to support and comfort you the exact way it’s supposed to.
We know that waiting can be difficult, and no one wants you to get a great night’s sleep more than us, but that eleveninches is the official signal that your bed is ready to sleep on. Plus, isn’t a little anticipation fun? Imagine how good that first sleep is going to feel when you’re chilled out and curled up on the best mattress out there. It’s going to be cloud-like! Using that extra time to make sure your bedroom is a special sleep haven is a great way to pass the time, and make sure that your nights are supremely restful. We know you’re going to love it.
It’s extremely unlikely that your mattress won’t expand to its full size, but if for some reason that does happen, then please don’t be afraid to give our customer support a call. Our Nectar sleep team is full of rockstars that are available seven days a week to field any questions and concerns you may have. If we determine that your mattress is defective, we’ll pick it up and replace it with a brand new one free of charge.
Not only that, your free trial extends for the whole first year you own your mattress. That’s right, for 365 days you can return it with no questions asked for a full refund. We’re confident that isn’t going to happen though. Sleeping on a Nectar means falling in love with it, and that love is going to start on the very first night.
Try a Nectar and see what all the fuss is about. The sooner you grab it, the sooner you can unpack that mattress!
