Questions & Answers on our Mattresses
What are the standard dimensions for your mattresses?
All Comfort Living Mattresses are made to Australian standard sizes as below: (Width x Length – in cm)
- Single – 92 x 188
- King single – 106 x 203
- Double – 137 x 188
- Queen – 153 x 203

What type of base suits your mattresses?
Our mattresses are designed for a slat or platform base. Please ensure that slats are no more than 8cm apart, and are at least 9cm wide.
On some bed frames we recommend using a centre rail or support for Double, Queen and King size mattresses.
Note: when using a "posture slat" or an old base, you may experience sagging in the middle as a result of the base. Always keep in mind that the mattress will follow the contour of the base.
What materials are used in your mattresses?
We only use all new quality materials to produce our products. This includes:
- Moisture resistance springs – reduces the chance of rust.
- High density foams – provides lasting resilience and support.
- Edge supports – increases the usable sleeping surface of the mattress.
- Quality tickings – ensures a durable sleeping surface.
How do I care for my mattress?
It is imperative to keep your mattress hygienic by using a mattress protector. This will help prevent the mattress from absorbing bodily fluids, and provides a removable surface that you can regularly wash.
As far as the mattress surface goes, a regular low suction vacuum is sufficient.
NOTE: If your mattress has handles, these are only for positioning and are not designed to hold the entire weight of the mattress.
Non-Pillow Top Mattress:
Turning (end to end and flipping over) your mattress regularly will ensure that your mattress experiences even wear. When new, we recommend turning your mattress every 2 weeks for the first 4 months, then every 3 months thereafter.
Pillow Top Mattress:
It is not necessary to flip over a pillow top mattress as they have what is called “no turn technology.”
When new, we recommend turning your pillow top from end to end every 2 weeks for the first 4 months, then every 3 months thereafter.
What is a “sleep impression”?
You may notice an indentation in the surface of your mattress, especially just after exiting the bed. This is called a sleep impression. This is the comfort and support layers conforming to your body shape to provide the best support.
