Limited Warranty and Care Instructions:
Cranium Furniture, Inc. warranties its mattresses and box
springs to the original consumer purchaser for a non pro-rated period of ten
years from the date of purchase against material defects and workmanship.
Pillowtop pads are warranted for a non pro-rated period of 5 years when used
with a Cranium Furniture mattress. Warranties protect your purchase from
defects in manufacturing – not from damage caused by use or normal wear and
option, the warranted item will be repaired or replaced. Cranium Furniture,
Inc. reserves the right to substitute material of equal quality. Repair or
replacement does not extend the original period of limited warranty, nor does
it constitute the beginning of a new limited warranty period.
If you have a claim before the end of the Limited
Warranty period due to a defect covered under this warranty, Cranium will
repair or replace, at our sole discretion, the defective product in a
reasonable period of time. Cranium
reserves the right to replace the failed product with a product of equal or
higher value, and does not guarantee an exact match to your current sleep set.
All transportation charges and packaging are the
responsibility of the consumer. For easy
identification, do not remove the white law labels or the product name labels. A
copy of the original sales receipt must be submitted with the Warranty Service Claim Form. Your
warranty will not be processed without proof of purchase. Please make sure you
have your sales receipt available when filling out the warranty service claim
form. Customer is responsible for providing copy of sales receipt. Customer shall also include proof of “proper
care” precautions. All Cranium Furniture
mattresses are required to have mattress encasements and mattress pad. Copy of sale
receipt for mattress encasement and mattress pad must be dated prior to or on
the date of receipt of mattress. Any
claim submitted without proof of purchase and proof of “proper care”
precautions, will be void.
For optimum use and longevity, turn mattress head to foot
once per month, flip it over the next month (if reversible). Only use handles
minimally when positioning mattress on box spring. Do not carry the mattress
with the handles. Use a mattress pad for sanitary protection of mattress and
pillowtop pad. Use mattress encasement to protect entire mattress from skin
sheading, bodily fluids, spills, sweat, wear and tear, premature material
breakdown. Mattress pad and encasement
will extend the life of the mattress. Even though Cranium utilizes the most
resilient materials available, Round Mattresses, standard mattresses and/or
pillowtop pads with quilted surfaces may break in unevenly as two people sleep
on either side of the middle 4 - 8 inches of the mattress. The result may
appear as a small hump in the middle. We recommend laying in the middle of the
mattress some of the time, especially when the materials are new. The materials
will break in more evenly, resulting in a more consistently level sleeping
surface. Carry your mattress flat on its side, this makes it easier to handle
and prevents damage. Keep your mattress sanitary by using a mattress pad,
especially if children use the bed.
Things to Avoid:
Do NOT bend, stand on, jump on, use dry cleaning
chemicals on, or allow any liquids on your mattress. Avoid placing a board
between your mattress and foundation. Do NOT destroy the law tag label as it
MUST be retained for warranty coverage.Warranty Excludes:

support, or improper care/maintenance
- Improper center support. Standard, custom
mattresses and box springs must be supported by a sturdy center rail that will
prevent the mattress from caving in

the mattress industry, for optimum comfort and mattress life span the mattress
should be rotated either head to foot, or turned over once a month (if mattress
- Broken box spring bases or bent mattress
innerspring border wires, folding the innerspring mattress in half, or even
significantly bending it can damage the mattress beyond repair. Movers are
notorious for bending mattresses in half. Remind movers to be very careful not
to bend your mattress more than just a little.
