What Does a Warranty Usually Cover?
Your mattress warranty generally covers measurable defects that effect the structural integrity of the mattress or box spring. This coverage will vary from manufacturer to manufacturer, so it is important to read your warranty card for details. The warranty also covers measurable body impressions greater than 1.5″ on a quilted-top mattress and greater than 0.75″ on a memory foam mattress.
What’s NOT Covered?
There are a few things that are not covered by the warranty:
Comfort is subjective and is not covered by the warranty unless the comfort issue is the affect of a measurable defect.
The handles on nearly every mattress are designed to be decorative. They are not built to carry the full weight of the mattress and should never be used to lift or move the mattress. Damage to the mattress from improper use of the decorative handles is not covered by the warranty.
Mold is a product of the environment the mattress is kept in and is not considered a manufacturer defect.
The top cover stitching on most mattresses is mainly for esthetics. Strings that are loose/unraveling are generally not covered.
Key things that void your warranty:
- Improper Support: Your manufacturer’s warranty requires that your mattress is supported by a foundation/bed frame/adjustable base that is structurally capable of carrying the weight of the mattress and purchaser(s). The manufacturer may require proof of the quality of the foundation, adjustable base, or bed frame.
- Improper Bed Frame: With king- and queen-size mattresses, the bed frame must have a center support beam and five to six legs.
- Stains/Soiling: This can ruin the structure of the product and make the bed unsanitary. For health & safety reasons, the manufacturer reserves the right to deny any warranty coverage based on stains or soiling. This includes, but is not limited to, discoloration, mold, water stains, etc.
- Missing Law Tag(s): The law tags provide the “birth date” and warranty code for your mattress.
