    Helpful Information About Our Mattresses

    At The Sleep Shop, we strive to provide support and assistance to our customers. We want to sell what works best for you, and we can help you find the right mattress for your needs. To answer some of your questions, here's some information regarding our mattresses and services:

    • Our Eastern-sized bed is often referred to as King-sized bed. These beds have the same surface area but with slightly different shape. The Eastern-sized bed is shorter and wider than the California King bed, which is longer and slightly narrower. The California King-sized bed is perfect for taller people, but linen sheets for that size are harder to find.
    • Our mattresses come with warranties that last for about five years or more as long as you own the mattress. We also provide detailed warranty information with every mattress we sell, however, each manufacturer’s warranty can be unique. Manufacturers often offer a 10-year warranty on body depressions, but they do not consider comfort. Call us at 530-888-0899 for warranty services for your mattress.

    Mattress Lifespan

    Mattresses usually last between 8 to 12 years. For example, Innerspring mattresses usually come with a 10-year warranty. However, mattresses with premium foam or latex may have a longer life expectancy. Our name-brand mattresses have a superior quality that the manufacturers offer a 10-year warranty. To maintain your warranty, it is required to use a matching foundation or a solid platform.

    Not sleeping equally across the top of the mattress when you first buy it can cause the foam to settle unevenly. This sleeping position leads to a ridge down the middle with two valleys on either side. Try to sleep in the middle of the bed, especially during the first 6 to 12 months of owning the mattress. We also have high-density mattresses with memory or latex that can reduce this effect.
