This is where you’ll find helpful tips and tricks on how to considerably extend the service life of your BICO products.
Airing and laundry Daily ventilation and a weekly change of bed linen are essential.
Cleaning the mattress cover Removable mattress covers may be washed or dry-cleaned, depending on the filling material; please observe the care instructions sewn to the mattress cover.
Shaking Duvets and pillows should be well shaken from time to time, outdoors where possible.
Moisture Bedding that has become damp should be dried as quickly as possible, in warm air (if necessary also in the sun).
Fresh air We recommend occasional airing in fresh air without prolonged exposure to the sun.
Care instructions The care instructions on the sewn-on labels must be observed.
Residues Over the years, various residues accumulate as a matter of course, even when taking good care. As such, you should replace your mattress every 8 to 10 years.
Washing We recommend having removable covers washed or dry-cleaned as required.
Airing the mattress The natural mattress pads are breathable, so the mattress should be allowed to air for half an hour before lying on it for the first time. Daily ventilation gives the mattress additional opportunity for recovery.
Turning For mattresses padded on both sides, we recommend turning the mattress at least once a month. Turning in the longitudinal direction is also recommended, except for mattresses which can only be turned in the head and foot sides.
Cleaning the mattress The mattress must not be dusted or vacuumed. Cleaning with a soft brush is sufficient and does not attack the natural materials.
