Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Tempur-Pedic Mattresses


Tempur-Pedic Mattresses

When it comes to mattress shopping, we always want you to feel like you’re making the right decision. This means making an informed decision. Even though you have no doubt heard plenty about Tempur-Pedic mattresses, you still have questions before you can confidently feel like this is the best bed for you. You have questions and we have answers! These are the top five questions our Sleep Experts are regularly asked in regard to a new Tempur-Pedic mattress:

How long does a Tempur-Pedic mattress last?

A mattress is an investment in your health and happiness. You certainly don’t want to buy a new mattress every five years. How long does a Tempur-Pedic bed last? The average life of a Tempur-Pedic mattress is about eight to 10 years. A Tempur-Pedic mattress can last for up to 15 years if they're well cared for. Wow! This is nearly twice as long as even highly-rated innerspring mattresses. These mattresses come with a 10-year manufacturer warranty, so you can know for sure they are quality products made to last.

Of course, there’s a bit more to it than this. A mattress sitting in your guest room that’s slept on a few times a year will no doubt last longer than the mattress you sleep on every single night. That being said, an inexpensive mattress that is made overseas from cheap foams is never going to hold up as long as a premium, American-made mattress. The main factors are how often you sleep on it and how well you care for the mattress.

How do I care for a Tempur-Pedic Mattress?

This naturally leads us to our next question. Because Tempur material is different from ordinary mattresses, there are some special care instructions you'll want to follow. Due to the temperature sensitivity of the Tempur material, Tempur-Pedic doesn't recommend using an electric blanket or heating pad with your mattress. Also, you shouldn’t flip it. If you start to feel an indention, rotate it so the “feet” part becomes the “head” part. 

The zippered SmartClimate® Dual Cover System is cool to the touch, removable, and washable, so it’s not difficult to care for them at all. If your Tempur-Pedic mattress accidentally becomes stained, from a beverage spill or pet accident, be sure to not drench, soak, or wash the mattress itself. Right away, remove the mattress cover that comes with the mattress and wash it with cold water and a mild bleach-free detergent. Allow it to air dry or machine dry on a very low setting until it is totally dry. Hopefully, pulling the cover off immediately stopped the stain from seeping into the mattress itself. If it did not, one thing you can try is to sprinkle some dry baking soda on the stain to remove odors. Avoid any type of bleach and harsh stain removers. 

Is Tempur-Pedic worth it?

A quick search online will show you that these mattresses are not cheap. Are Tempur-Pedic mattresses worth it? Absolutely! Mattresses are not something to bargain hunt for. While you don’t necessarily need an expensive model in order to sleep well and wake up back pain free, it is important to purchase a mattress that will meet your needs. In the long run, this can help eliminate any extra cost add-ons, such as mattress toppers, custom covers, or specialized pillows.

What is the best Tempur-Pedic mattress to choose?

This is a question that doesn’t have one right answer. Different mattresses work best for different people. Factors like your preferred sleeping position, budget, and what you find most comfortable should be considered when looking for the best Tempur-Pedic mattress for you.
