How does the Blello mattress’ 100-night, risk-free sleep trial work? Here’s everything you need to know, including some frequently asked questions.
When considering where to buy a mattress, we know that you need time to test your options. Shopping in a brick and mortar store can be a good option since you have dozens of mattresses right in front of you, waiting to be tested. But the many different types, hovering salespeople and short amount of time you have with each bed can make the shopping experience a nightmare – not to mention the limitations when it comes to sleep trials and/or returns.
With Blello, your shopping experience is completely different. Every mattress-in-a-box is delivered for free and comes with a 100-night sleep trial that begins the day it’s delivered. You can sleep on your mattress in the comfort of your home, with your own sheets, blankets, pillows and pets for 100 nights. We believe this helps you make the best call on whether Blello is the right fit for your sleep preferences!
But what should you expect during your first 100 nights sleeping on Blello? Here’s what you need to know:
Your Blello’s First Few Hours
Once your mattress is free from its surrounding plastic, magic will happen! Watch as your Blello expands into its full form, right before your eyes.
Since the mattress needs to be compressed to fit into its blue and yellow box, it will need a couple of hours to expand to its full form. We recommend not sleeping on your Blello until then.
The First Few Days
You might notice a subtle odor coming from your mattress. No worries! This is totally normal. Since Blello is made of foam materials, a smell can sometimes be noticeable. This will diminish within 1 to 5 days.
To eliminate this smell quickly, we recommend unboxing and removing your Blello from the plastic wrap as soon as you can.
The First Few Weeks
Since the foam layers making up our Balanced Sleep System™ were designed to give you the perfect combination of contouring, support and coolness, your Blello is going to need some time to get to know you.
In the first few weeks of sleeping on your mattress, it will begin to conform to your body. But don’t worry — while some foam mattresses can sleep hot because of their contouring properties, Blello will avoid trapping heat thanks to our Serene® Foam layer.
We suggest giving yourself at least 30 days to adjust to sleeping on your new mattress. You may need a longer adjustment period if you’re transitioning from sleeping on a different type of mattress, like one with innerspring coils. If this is the case for you, it might be helpful to check out our article comparing foam and spring mattress.
The “Risk-Free” Part of the Trail
You should never be stuck with a product that you don’t love! If you’re not satisfied with your Blello mattress, you can return it at any time during nights 31 and 100 of your 100-night trial.
We’ll work with you to make sure it’s donated to a charity in your area. If one isn’t available, we’ll pick up your mattress. All of this is free of charge. You can see more specifics about our return policy here.
Nights 101 and Beyond
If you’ve made it to night 101, that means you must have found your ideal match with Blello — yay!
After your first 100 nights, you still have coverage under our 10-year, limited mattress warranty. If there are any issues when it comes to the craftsmanship of your Blello, you can contact us for a repair or replacement.
Frequently Asked Questions
How long does a foam mattress take to fully expand?
Blello is compressed and packaged in an air-tight seal, then boxed to be delivered to your home. Because of this, it’s recommended that you allow a couple of hours for your mattress to fully expand and get back to its intended form.
Why do foam mattresses smell?
The foam layers that comprise a lot of your mattress options are made from polyurethane, which is found in many of the products you use every day. Since Blello is compressed and placed in an air-tight seal during transport to your home, low levels of gas from the polyurethane can build up. When you unpackage your mattress, the gas is released and produces a harmless smell that dissipates within a few days. This is also known as “off-gassing.”
How long does it take for the smell to diminish?
It should only take a few days for the off-gassing smell to diminish. In the meantime, you can make sure the odor dissipates as soon as possible by removing Blello from its plastic wrap as soon as you can and placing it in a well-ventilated room.
