As your mattress ages over the years, you might be wondering when it’s time to flip or rotate your mattress.

All Sleepeezee mattresses come with instructions in our Product Guarantee and Care Guides – However, with all the mixed messaging out there, we understand why you may be questioning whether you need to flip or rotate your mattress!

To flip or rotate is the big question when it comes to that perfect night’s sleep because it ensures even distribution of body weight and helps prolong the life of your mattress.

As an essential part of the care and maintenance of your mattress, you need to ensure you are following the instructions provided to you by the Sleepeezee team.

Doing so will ensure that the main benefits of rotating or flipping your mattress regularly will last. These benefits include a consistent level of support and comfort, as well as reduced risk of sagging.

How Do I Rotate My Mattress?

Rotating your mattress is quite simple and can usually be completed by one person. Before you rotate your mattress, you first need to remove your bedding and any furniture close to your bed.

Then, to rotate your mattress, simply move the head to the bottom of your bed, completing one full 180-degree rotation. A non-turn mattress must be rotated from head to foot every week for the first three months and every month thereafter.

How Do I Flip My Mattress?

You should only ever flip your mattress if it is double-sided. If it is, you must turn it every week for the first three months and once a month from there.

Just like when you rotate your mattress, you need to make sure you remove all bedding and furniture that may be in your way. You then need to:

  1. Rotate your mattress 90 degrees
  2. Raise your mattress onto its side
  3. Lower your mattress so that the top side is now at the bottom
  4. Rotate 90 degrees back onto your bed
