Have any of you ever had a Mattress Inspection?
The guy from the store we purchased our mattress from, came in, and explained to us what he was going to do...and then he did it. He looked at the bed. Picked up the mattress and looked at the foundation and then said, "Your mattress is on the floor". I said Yes, it is but it's on it's foundation. Then he asked what the problem was and I briefly told him. He pushed on the mattress a few times and then got out a plumb bob and laid the string across the bed and tried to find a low spot in the mattress - but there was none. He got out his block of foam with a line drawn across it and he said, "your mattress has to be up to the mark on the piece of foam to be determined to be faulty and replaced under warranty." Of course the mattress didn't come under those guidelines or in other words, it fell short of the line on the foam cube. We're left with a mattress I can't sleep on.
Well, we bit the bullet and looked for a new mattress set tonite. We headed back to our favoite shop - Art Van Sleep Shop in Toledo, Ohio and met one of the most pleasant sales people ever - Nikki. We found a few mattresses after she did a diagnostic computer test on us, she showed us 4 mattresses. (I wish we could get by with a cheaper mattress, but with my hip and back, I know that that wouldn't work...and I won't sacrifice how I feel when I get out of bed. I figured out that our EXPENSIVE mattress we bought 7 years ago, cost us $21.50 per month - and those were totally PAIN FREE months! We found one that stood out amongst the 4 and spent a good deal of time on it. My hip and back, neck and shoulders began feeling so much better. I haven't had pain since yesterday, before we went and tried out mattresses (even after a night on our sagging one). PTL! We decided on it. Nice thing about ArtVan Furniture is, we can get the new mattress set quickly and they have a 30 night comfort guarantee. If for any reason, we can let them know if we're having a problem with a mattress and they'll take it back and we get reselect another mattress set of the same or great value than the one we'd return. Just in case - it's a good thing. PLUS, they were offering 50 months FREE FINANCING - even though we had planned on paying for it in cash, we decided this was the wisest way to pay for it...keeping the cash in the bank.
This morning...we're going to Lowe's to get paint and whatever else we need to paint our Bedroom. So, that's where I'll be until we're done with that project. Then we'll have to paint the bathroom and closet...but that's OK.
I'll let you know more about the mattress after I've been able to spend some time on it.
