What kind of support/frame is necessary for bedding today?

Use a sturdy bed frame! If your mattress is a queen or king set, make sure that your frame has the extra center support needed to prevent bowing and sagging. This is required to ensure complete warranty protection for your sleep set. Sealy's recommendation for frame usage is illustrated below. Shown below are examples of proper bed frames for queen- and king-size bedding.

How do I carry or move my mattress?

Two people should normally carry your Sealy mattress flat on its side. It's easier to handle and less likely to get damaged. Don't bend your mattress under any circumstances.* Bending may damage the innerspring unit. Flex rather than bend the mattress when going through doorways, and don't bend the corners when putting on fitted sheets. *Restriction does not apply to Sealy Posturepedic king-size mattresses, which are designed to bend at specific hinging points.

How and why do I rotate my bedding? How do I avoid body impressions in my mattress? How do I maintain consistent comfort and feel throughout the life of my bedding?

We recommend that you rotate your Sealy mattress on a regular basis to refresh its comfort. Mattresses contain many layers of upholstery padding to increase their comfort life and support performance. Body indentations can be a normal occurrence in new mattresses, and indicate that the upholstery layers are conforming to a person's individual body contours. To help minimize body impressions, mattresses should be turned occasionally throughout their life. For convenience, we have illustrated below the best method.
