HOW IS A MEMORY FOAM MATTRESS DIFFERENT FROM INNERSPRING BED?
Genuine memory foam mattresses provide pressure relief and Memory foam mattresses do sometimes require a period of adjustment. Movement, temperature, and the "cradling" effect will all be slightly different than an innerspring bed. There can be a period of adjustment, but we find that within two week the vast majority of our customers love their beds and will never go back to an innerspring model.
HOW DOES THE BED BOSS COMPARE TO OTHER MAJOR BRANDS?
We feel confident that our foam, and the construction and style of a mattress from The Bed Boss, is a strong competitor to the most famous brands, at fraction of the cost. Our beds are not "good copies". They stand alone as high quality, low cost leaders in this sector of the mattress industry.

WHERE CAN I PURCHASE A MATTRESS LOCALLY?
Our corporate offices and store is located in Crossville TN, but we have retailers throughout the southeast and other parts of the country who sell our full line of beds. Our retailers are decentralized so we don’t know where all of them are located. Check mattress stores in your area and request The Bed Boss. This should help you locate a retailer. You can also purchase online, as we are able to ship directly to your doorstep via FedEx.
WHAT CAN I PURCHASE WITH A COUPON?
Discount codes are not valid on the purchase of pillows or toppers online. You can however use a valid code from an Independent Authorized Dealer towards the purchase of a mattress. Retail-Me-Not coupons are not valid in store or online.
IS THERE FINANCING AVAILABLE?
Our mattresses are priced very competitively, compared to other memory foam mattresses. For this reason we are unable to offer any financing.

CARE OF MY MATTRESS
DOES MY NEW MATTRESS COME WITH A BOX SPRING OR FOUNDATION BOX?
No. TheBedBoss.com products are sold as mattress only. Any firm, flat foundation, including but not limited to a foundation box, box spring, platform bed with adequate slats, or the floor, will provide adequate support for your new mattress.
CAN I PURCHASE A FOUNDATION ONLINE?
No a foundation cannot be shipped via FedEx. Any local mattress or furniture store can provide a foundation box.
WHAT TYPE OF FOUNDATION IS RECCOMMENDED?
We generally recommend a standard foundation box, one without springs. However if your box spring is in good condition there is no reason to incur the expense of a new one. Any firm flat surface can provide enough support for a memory foam mattress. This can also include a platform bed, or the floor.
HOW DO YOU CARE FOR THE COVER?
You can spot clean your mattress cover with warm water and soap. The covers can also be removed and dry cleaned one time if necessary. We do not recommend washing the cover in a traditional machine. The most important concern is that the foam is dried quickly and completely, as any excess moisture will cause mold over time.
HOW CAN I PROTECT MY MATTRESS FROM DAMAGE?
We recommend the use of a waterproof mattress cover to protect the foam from mildew in the event of liquid spill.
CAN I USE A HEATED MATTRESS PAD?
Yes, you can use a heated mattress pad on the bed. Direct heat will soften the feel of the bed. It will keep its properties and return to normal, as the temperature cools, but you will find a slight difference in the firmness when the mattress pad is in use.
WILL THE MATTRESS HAVE A SMELL?
A slight foam odor is normal, and should dissipate within a couple of days. You can expedite the process by placing it in a warm well-ventilated room, and occasionally "fluffing it" to release any clustered cells. Within 24-48 hours there should be very little odor.
CAN WE SPEED UP DECOMPRESSION?
Your mattress would probably decompress, and thus soften, faster if you were to walk on it. The foam can also feel a bit firmer in colder temperatures. Allowing it the full 24-48 hours to air out, and warm up from shipping, should release the foam to its normal consistency.
