You've just received your brand-new Sleepyhead mattress topper and are excited about the comfort it's going to bring to your sleep. But before you dive into dreamland, it's important to take a moment to ensure that your topper is ready for action. Properly airing out your topper before use is crucial for its longevity and your overall sleep experience. In this blog, we'll guide you through the process of unboxing your topper, removing it from the plastic wrapping, and allowing it to decompress. We'll also discuss the steps you can take to ensure optimal aeration. Plus, we'll highlight the certifications that make Sleepyhead mattress toppers a top choice for comfort and safety.
Allowing Your Topper to Decompress
Once you've taken your topper out of the box, it's time to let it decompress. Memory foam toppers can take anywhere from 30 minutes to 12 hours to fully expand to their intended size and shape. Here's what you need to do:
Unwrap the Topper: Carefully remove the plastic wrapping from the topper. Be patient and avoid using sharp objects to prevent any accidental damage.
Place in a Well-Ventilated Room: Find a room with good airflow and air circulation. This will help the topper expand more efficiently.
Remove the Cover: To expedite the decompression process, consider removing the fabric cover and allowing the foam to breathe freely. The cover can be washed in cold water and should be hung to dry.
Flip the Foam Daily: For enhanced ventilation on both sides of the topper, consider flipping it daily or suspending it over a chair. This will help ensure even expansion.
Addressing Any Potential Smell
At Sleepyhead, we take pride in producing mattress toppers known for having no smell. However, we understand that some people may be more sensitive to smells than others. If you happen to notice any unusual odors during the decompression process, rest assured that it's temporary and harmless. The topper's CertiPUR-US® certification signifies the lowest levels of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and off-gassing among memory foams, ensuring your safety and peace of mind.
