How to turn your Harrison Spinks Somnus Mattress


A Harrison Spinks Somnus mattresses is made up of multiple layers of luxurious natural fillings which offer great comfort and temperature regulating properties. Many of us tend to sleep in a similar position each night and overtime your body impressions can leave a dip in your handmade mattress.  Rotating and turning your mattress in the first few weeks and months of purchase and thereafter just a couple of times a year will allow your mattress fillings to settle a little more evenly if you are keen to reduce body shapes appearing.

How to Turn Your mattress
Step 1: Rotate the mattress to overhang the bed.
Step 2: Raise the mattress up on its edge.
Step 3: Lower the mattress gently to expose the other side.
Step 4: Realign the mattress with the bed.
If you have a non-turn Zip & Link mattress, unzip your mattresses first before rotating them both together through 180 degrees, without turning over.

How to Turn Your Dual firmness mattress

A one piece dual firmness mattresses (without Zip & Link) are those that have a firmer spring side and a softer spring side if you and your sleeping partner have two different comfort preferences. To maintain your normal sleeping side, turn the mattress over from head to foot only. If you struggle to turn and rotate your mattress, do not worry, this is only a recommendation to help reduce body impressions.

How to rotate your non-turn mattress

A turn free or pillowtop mattress should never be flipped over. Instead, it should be rotated twice a year.

Step 1: Push the mattress at opposite corners A and B whilst it’s laying at.

Step 2: Push on alternate corners A and B to position the mattress on the bed.

All done. Your mattress has now been rotated end to end.
