Mattress Warranties: Read the Small Print

Understanding the intricacies of your mattress warranty is paramount in ensuring a satisfactory and lasting investment—the mattress warranty safeguards against potential defects, offering recourse in case of issues. However, the terms and conditions can vary significantly, impacting coverage, repair costs, and the lifespan of the warranty. The warranty is a safety net for potential defects, but the terms can vary. By understanding the coverage, repair costs, and duration, you empower yourself to make informed decisions and be prepared for any issues that may arise.


What is a Mattress Warranty?

A warranty safeguards customers from product defects, including mattresses. It's essential when customers can't thoroughly test a product before purchasing. Mattress warranties protect against manufacturing defects or craftsmanship flaws, offering recourse for faulty mattresses. Coverage varies among brands or businesses, typically addressing non-customer-caused imperfections. Warranties may include repair or replacement but don't cover issues from regular use or accidents. Improper mattress care can void the warranty.


What are the Different Types of Mattress Warranties?

There are three types of mattress warranties:  

Prorated Warranty

Customers pay a share of the costs for mattress repair or replacement. The longer they own the mattress, the higher the percentage they must pay for these services. The warranty's value diminishes as the length of ownership increases.


Non-prorated Warranty

Under a non-prorated warranty, customers usually don't incur costs for repairing or replacing a defective mattress within the warranty period. However, they might be accountable for return shipping expenses. This type of warranty maintains a consistent value throughout its duration.


Combination Warranty

This warranty type blends features of both prorated and non-prorated warranties. The mattress is under a non-prorated warranty for part of the warranty period and a prorated warranty for the remainder.


What are the Terms of Mattress Warranties?

Ensure you learn the terms of your warranty to buy with confidence, knowing you are covered should there be a defect.

  • Warranty Length: How long from the date of purchase does the warranty last?

  • Coverage: What exactly does the warranty cover? Typically, normal wear and tear is not covered. Look for defects like broken coils, split seams, or other construction issues in your coverage.

  • Type of Coverage: What happens if there is a defect? Does the company repair or replace the mattress?

  • Voidance: What factors would void the warranty? Sometimes, this includes spills or not supporting the mattress properly.
