COLMOL Mattresses

Our mattresses deserve to be well cared for because they are very special.

The Colmol mattress is an asset because it helps distribute body weight and pressure across its surface. If the habit of rotating the mattress is maintained, the material that constitutes it will “renew”, giving it new life.

It will also relieve back pain and make you feel more comfortable while you sleep.

In general, we advise you to run the mattress position Colmol at 180 degrees, every 3-5 months.

Simply rotating the mattress can make all the difference in the long run. Round mattresses, happy mattresses! 

How to run:

When it comes to keeping the mattress in its best shape, doubts often arise in relation to flip it over.  But is this a myth or reality?

As always, we are here to answer your questions, and this time it will be no different.

Unlike many of the mattresses from other brands, Colmol's are designed to be used on both sides, so they can and should be turned.

Probably the question “can I turn the bag spring mattress?” will pop into your mind, because you hear a lot out there that these mattresses cannot be turned over. But Colmol's can, regardless of their composition. Great, isn't it? 

We not only advise you to run it, but also to turn over all our mattresses.

We will explain to you why!

Briefly, mattresses are constituted as follows: 


It consists of a thick, relatively firm layer, typically made of dense foam and/or metal springs. 


It has one or more layers of foam or springs. It can have varying levels of density and firmness. 


As the name implies, it consists of all the materials that are baked and that give the mattress its final appearance. It is that generally white part that is most visible.

A well-developed comfort system provides a good wrap around your body in the mattress, while the support core helps keep you supported and your spine properly aligned throughout the night.

These layers exist on both sides of Colmol mattresses, and work together so that they are always comfortable and maintain quality. That's why you can turn them over without any problem.

 flip the mattress not only will it help to extend its life, it will prevent continuous wear in the same places by distributing pressure evenly on both sides. Turning it over will also prevent mites multiply always on the same surface, causing respiratory problems.

If you don't turn the mattress that is designed to be turned over, it will become much less comfortable and firm. You will find that it wears out more quickly and that back pain will inevitably show up.

As a rule, in your day-to-day you already have habits that can damage your spine, so don't let your nights contribute to that too. 


Regardless of the mattress we want to buy, it's hard to be indifferent to a practical mattress, made to be enjoyed to the full and in every way.

Who doesn't like having multiple features in one product?

Most mattress manufacturers only advise to rotate them, not recommending overturning. But with Colmol mattresses, everything changes. For the best.

That's also why Colmol mattresses stand out, since they can be used in any way, because they can be rotated and turned. What better thing than being able to take advantage of this and enjoy both sides of the mattress?

With our mattresses you will never have to waste time reading what you can and cannot do. If you estimate your mattress well and follow our small and valuable tips, you will be able to sleep well from both sides.

Therefore, we recommend turn the mattress 1 time every 6 months.

But beware! if you sleep from belly down, you must turn the mattress more often because your body will put more pressure on it. 

How to turn:

1- Rotate the mattress until it is in a horizontal position on the bed (don't forget to bend your knees whenever you move it and ask for help if necessary).
2- Bend your knees and raise the mattress until its side is in contact with the bed base.
3- Slowly lay the mattress on the bed with surface B facing upwards.
4- Aligns it with the base and head of the bed  




It's not worth talking about the frequency of turning and turn the mattress, without you knowing what the advantages of doing it are: 


turn and rotate/turn the mattress will cause the weight to be evenly distributed over it, avoiding bumps and bumps on the surface.

If you move around a lot during the night, you should pay more attention to this fact, as this will interfere with the mattress structure. Therefore, it is extremely important to keep the habit of turning and rotate the mattress often. 


If one of the parts of your mattress sinks too far, it's a sign that you don't turn or roll it enough. These lower and weaker areas of the mattress can cause inadequate support for your coluat, even if they are small.

If you have the tendency to sleep better on one side of the bed or sleeping with a partner, you must rotate and turn the mattress, so that the support is as even as possible for both.

A weak mattress is no fun, especially when trying to get a good night's sleep.  


Have you ever felt like “climbing” the mattress when you lie down and then having to roll over to get out of bed? Well, that's what to turn and rotate the mattress prevents.

This behavior is related to the weakness of the mattress material, which causes the mattress to tilt, in the place on which you usually sleep.

If you prefer sleep on the side, the slope it tends to increase even more if you don't follow our advice. What's worse, your spine and flanks will be unsupported while you sleep, which causes problems in those areas later on. 


Rotating and turning your mattress gives it a chance to breathe.

Over time, your mattress will accumulate mites, fur, sweat and moisture. By changing the mattress position, you also change the imprint of your body on it, not subjecting it to the same load for so long, on the same place. 

In summary, you should bear in mind that it is essential to rotate and turn your mattress from time to time, so that it lasts longer and maintains its structure.

With Colmol mattresses there are no restrictions, you can and should follow these tips.

Sleep tight!
