Memory Foam - Information

Memory foam can be temperature-sensitive and so a mattress might feel cold and hard on going to bed. As it reacts to body heat, it may mould to the individuals shape. Some memory foam mattresses are pressure sensitive and they mould to body shape more quickly. Some people find that this moulding facet can make it more difficult to move or get out of bed.

Memory foam also reduces air circulation around the body, which makes the mattress feel warmer. Some people find memory foam mattresses too warm.

Memory foam mattresses should not be turned but they can benefit from being rotated from the bottom to the top from time to time.

The suppliers indicate that it can take people several days to get used to sleeping on memory foam.

Electric blankets must not be used with any of the supplied memory foam mattresses.


Covers

The Tempacool mattress cover can be washed using a 40 degree heat setting or lower. Hang to dry or tumble dry at a low setting. Although there are no recommendations for the cover for the mattress in bedroom 4 it should be washed at a low temperature if necessary.
