Frequently Asked Questions.
Our Sleep Specialists are on call and ready to help. Take a look at our FAQ's, email or call us with questions or concerns, or, since this goes both ways, send over some feedback. We've got you covered.
Product
  • What materials are used in my Helix Mattress?
    Each Helix Mattress is made specifically for you and designed with 3 different components all wrapped in a cover that is custom designed for breathability, comfort, and to give your mattress a sleek aesthetic. The components are Helix Dynamic Foam, Pocketed Microcoils, and High-Grade Polyfoam.

    Helix Dynamic Foam is not memory foam and not latex, but something right in the middle. It's a supremely contouring, reactively comfortable, and uniquely cooling proprietary premium foam.

    Pocketed Microcoils are miniature coils that allow for effective weight distribution, pressure relief, and spring.

    And finally, High-Grade Polyfoam has a wide range of densities, and allows for durability in the base layers and varying firmness in the comfort layers.
  • What are the different mattress sizes and dimensions?
    The mattress sizes we offer and their corresponding dimensions are below. Please note that, due to the handmade nature of our product, mattress dimensions can vary by up to 1” on any given side.

    King: 76" x 80"
    California King: 72" x 84"
    Queen: 60" x 80"
    Full: 54" x 75"
    Twin XL: 39" x 80"
    Twin: 39" x 75"

    All of our mattresses are 10” high.
  • What will my Helix Mattress feel like?
    Each Helix Mattress is designed to provide the feel you desire--whether firm, plush or somewhere in-between--while also ensuring your body has the optimal level of support it needs to keep your spine in alignment.
  • Should I ever flip my Helix Mattress over?
    We do not recommend flipping the mattress, as your personalized construction is built on top of a supportive base layer. The blue fabric should always be the bottom part of the mattress, with the white fabric being the top. The order of the layers in your Helix Mattress is critical to maintaining the integrity of your individual design.
  • Will my Helix Mattress get body impressions or sag over time?
    We chose top quality materials in all of our designs for just this reason. Proprietary Helix Dynamic Foam, steel-forged Pocketed Microcoils and High-Grade Polyfoam work together to provide a resilient, durable product that is built to last, preventing permanent sags or impressions from developing for a very long time.
  • Should I ever rotate my Helix Mattress?
    Because our mattress is built to last, you do not need to rotate the mattress. However, you are welcome to if you’d like! For those with a Dual Comfort mattress, just keep in mind that rotating the mattress will swap the side of the bed that you and your partner sleep on.
  • I’m allergic to latex. Is that a problem?
    Nope! You're in luck. We don't use Latex in any of our products.
  • Do you make custom sizes?
    At this time we are unable to accommodate special requests for custom sizes.
  • Does my Helix Mattress have a weight limit?
    The Helix mattress can support up to 500lbs of combined weight, and up to 350lbs for individual sleepers. This weight limit is established by successful testing conducted by our team.
  • Does my Helix Mattress have an odor, or an off-gassing period?
    We use high-grade materials that have little to no odor or chemical off-gassing. Our Helix Dynamic Foam and our High-Grade Polyurethane Foam is certified by the CertiPUR-US® program. It does not contain any harmful chemicals, heavy metals, or high impact of air quality. There is no need to air out your mattress overnight. Any faint odors or smells will dissipate within a few hours.
  • What is Helix Dynamic Foam?
    Helix Dynamic Foam isn’t memory foam (too hot) and isn’t latex (the whole allergy thing) but in that sweet spot right in the middle. With the best of both materials, and none of the downsides, Helix Dynamic Foam is a supremely contouring, reactively comfortable, and uniquely cooling proprietary premium foam.
  • What’s the difference between a Dual Comfort and Blended Helix Mattress for couples?
    We believe that each mattress should be made to give the best night’s sleep to both people. For couples that are similar in sleeping needs or prefer a consistent feel across the whole mattress, we suggest a Blended Helix Mattress, in which we take the combination of both of your individual results to create a happy medium across the whole mattress. For couples with very different needs, we suggest a Dual Comfort Helix Mattress, in which we take each of your results and individually personalize each side, splitting the mattress down the middle.
  • We chose Dual Comfort, but the Sleep Quiz told us we should get a Blended Helix Mattress. Why?
    Sometimes couples think they need different types of beds, but our sleep algorithm actually suggests you both are similar enough to warrant a consistent feel. This happens for a lot of reasons such as your relative body sizes, sleeping preferences, mattress preferences, or the interaction of multiple quiz answers. Because our Dual Comfort beds cost an additional $150, we always want to inform customers when we suggest a Blended option so as not to charge them the additional fee.
Technology
  • How does the personalization work?
    We’ve worked alongside some of the world’s leading researchers on sleep ergonomics and biomechanics to develop our cutting-edge personalization technology. We use your Sleep Quiz answers to determine your biological needs in terms of support, pressure relief, and temperature. We then combine that data with your preferences and then run that model through our set of proprietary algorithms to produce the optimal mattress design for you.
  • Is there an adjustment, or break-in, period?
    You will likely experience an adjustment or break-in period with our mattress. This is because most people are not sleeping on a mattress that has been suited for their sleeping needs and preferences, and your body will need time to align to a new sleep system. Also, just like a new pair of shoes, the materials in the mattress need to be physically broken in, so it might feel more stiff than you’d expect in the first few weeks of ownership. We recommend that you give your new Helix Mattress up to 30 days to experience the full effect.
Purchase
  • How can I buy a mattress without trying it?
    We’re changing the mattress shopping experience for the better. Allow us to take your sleeping needs & preferences into account, and we’ll build a mattress design that will suit you best. Then, we'll conveniently ship your personalized mattress directly to your door. We’ve been the customer, so we understand that buying a mattress isn’t easy. That’s why we offer our 100 Night Sleep Trial to ensure that you really get to sleep on it before you commit. We want you to absolutely love your Helix Mattress. If for any reason you don’t, returns are simple and hassle-free!
  • Do I need to pay sales tax?
    Sales tax is applied to orders being shipped to New York and California. Additionally, Canadian orders will incur a customs tax that is applied during checkout. Individual postal code rates may apply.
  • What if I couldn't apply my discount or referral code to my purchase?
    Discount or referral codes can be applied retroactively so long as you bring this to our attention within 48 hours after placing your order. Simply send an email to help@helixsleep.com that includes your Order Confirmation number and the discount/referral code you'd like to use. Please note that no discount code can be applied to orders paid for via Klarna financing. No more than one discount or referral code can be applied at a time.
  • Do you offer financing options?
    We’ve partnered with Klarna to offer customers flexibility in their payment choices. To take advantage of financing options, select "Pay With Klarna" at checkout, follow the prompts, and enter some basic information for an instant loan decision. Klarna loans vary depending on eligibility, with as low as 0% APR interest. Please keep in mind that you cannot apply discount codes or promotions to your order if you choose to pay with a financing plan. We are available to discuss further if you have any questions!
  • How do you keep your prices affordable?
    Our approach is to make your mattress buying experience simple, convenient and affordable. We've optimized our designs to give you a great night’s sleep. In the process, we've left out all of the unnecessary whatsits, doodads, whatchamacallits, and thingamajigs that do nothing but increase prices. In addition, we ship directly from the factory to your doorstep, cutting out the middlemen and the inefficiency. We’re passing those savings along to you.
  • Can I make my purchase through PayPal?
    Yes! It’s super simple. Start by clicking on "Checkout with PayPal" on the cart or checkout page when you’re ready to complete your purchase. This will allow you to input or verify your payment information using PayPal. After you’ve completed these steps you’ll be able to review and complete your order.
Foundations
  • What is the Helix Foundation?
    The Helix Foundation is the perfect match for your Helix Mattress. It provides extra height to your bed, and most importantly, the right kind of support for your mattress. The Helix Foundation is made up of high quality wood and woven with the same blue fabric found on the outer edge of your mattress. It has slats between 2 and 4 inches apart to provide the best support and airflow and fits in any traditional bed frame. It can be used as a box spring replacement or simply placed on the floor under a Helix Mattress.
  • What’s in my foundation?
    Your Helix Foundation consists of high grade pine wood surrounded by a woven exterior made up of the same blue fabric on your Helix Mattress. Completely made in the USA.
  • Is The Helix Foundation a box spring?
    In short, yes. The Helix Foundation is very similar to a box spring and has the same dimensions. However, the Helix Foundation has been built to give much better support for a foam mattress than you would get from a traditional box spring.
  • Do I need a foundation?
    The Helix Mattress works on many different surfaces: slats, platform beds, or even the floor. If your bed frame allows for a box-spring, we recommend using the Helix Foundation, as it is made specifically for a foam mattress and has slats between 3 and 4 inches apart to fully support your Helix Mattress, while allowing air to circulate.
  • What are the dimensions of the foundation?
    Twin: (37.5” x 74” x 7.5”)
    Twin XL: (37.5” x 79” x 7.5”)
    Full: (52.5” x 74” x 7.5”)
    Queen: (59.5” x 79” x 7.5”)
    King: (75.5” x 79” x 7.5”)
    Ca King: (71.5” x 83” x 7.5”)
  • Can I buy the foundation without buying a Helix Mattress?
    Of course! We recommend using the Helix Mattress and the Helix Foundation together for the best sleep experience, however the Helix Foundation will work with any mattress.
  • Where does my foundation go?
    The foundation will fit on any standardized bed frame or platform, even the floor!
  • What’s the return policy?
    Same as our Helix Mattress! We offer a 100 Night Sleep Trial, if for any reason you do not love your foundation you can return it within your first 100 nights of sleep.
  • What is the warranty?
    Every Helix Foundation comes with a warranty of 5 years.
  • Where is the Helix Foundation made?
    The Helix Foundation is 100% made in America.
  • How much weight does the Helix Foundation support?
    The Helix Foundation has been tested to support up to 600 lbs with no signs of wear, though there is no official weight limit.
  • Will my Helix Foundation ship with my Helix Mattress?
    Our Foundation and Mattress are produced and shipped from different facilities. Your Helix Foundation will ship separately from Tennessee.
  • Why are the foundations an inch shorter than the mattresses?
    We designed our foundation to fit within all standardized bed frames. Mattresses typically extend less than ½ inch over all sides a foundation, this is done purposely to properly fit in the bed frame and support your mattress. Don’t worry, this slight difference in size will not affect the support of your mattress.
  • How do I assemble the Helix Foundation and how long will it take?
    The assembly of the Helix Foundation is simple and can be completed in 4 quick steps. Just like our Sleep Quiz it should take you 2-3 minutes to assemble, no tools required!

    To begin, make sure you have all the required parts:

    -4 Side Support Rails
    -Support Slat Pack (1 Piece Twin, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, CA King)
    -Middle Support Beam (Full, Queen // 2 pieces for King, CA King), Twin & Twin XL you won’t need this piece!

    Unbox: Remove all of the materials from the box and arrange the 4 Side Support Rails into a rectangle with the arrows facing up. Line the longer and shorter rails up respectively.

    Fasten: Fasten the 4 rails to each other, long to short, using the attached brackets. The should click into place. This will be the base of your foundation. Align: Align the middle support beam(s) and firmly click them into place the same way that you attached the rails. If you have a Twin or Twin XL you can skip this step.

    Unroll: Line up the support slat pack at the head of the bed and unroll it over the foundation. It will remain securely in place with the weight of your mattress.

If you have specific delivery needs, we recommend registering for UPS MyChoice (www.ups.com/mychoice), a service that gives you control over your delivery arrival dates.

Returns
  • How does the 100 Night Sleep Trial work?
    The 100 Night Sleep Trial is our guarantee that comes along with your Helix Mattress purchase.

If, for any reason, you are unhappy with the mattress, you can return it for a full refund within the trial period.
  • Can I exchange my Helix Mattress?
    At this time, we offer exchanges for size changes, but not for design or configuration changes.

  • What happens to returned mattresses?
    We do our best to donate lightly used mattresses to charities and housing facilities. When we’re unable to do so due to relevant laws or the state of the mattress, we enlist our removal partner to recycle the mattress and its materials responsibly.
  • When will I receive my refund?
    Once a refund has been issued, it takes 5-7 business days for the credit to be reflected back onto your original form of payment.

The return timeline can vary dependent on your geography and what local services are available. To initiate a return, email help@helixsleep.com. The subject line of the email should read “Return Request - [Your Order #]”. In the body of the email, include the full name on the order and a description of what’s prompting your return. Within 1-2 business days, our Customer Experience team will respond with next steps to set up a removal date. We never resell or restock returned mattresses. In fact, we do our best to donate returned mattress locally. If we cannot donate it due to relevant laws or the state of the mattress, we'll have a trusted recycling partner remove it from your home.
Setup
  • How long can I keep my Helix Mattress in the box?
    We recommend that you do not keep your Helix Mattress in its original packaging for more than 2 weeks after receiving your mattress. Spending too much time in the packaging can affect the resilience of the mattress, preventing it from re-gaining its full shape. It’s important to note that your 100 Night Sleep Trial begins on the day of arrival, so you won’t want to keep it boxed up for too long!
  • Tell me more about how to setup my Helix Mattress.
    Setup instructions are included in your shipping confirmation email, as well as inside the packaging when the mattress arrives. Once it arrives, simply remove the mattress from the box and set it on your foundation while it’s still encased in plastic. Then, remove the mattress from its plastic wrapping, give it 45 minutes to an hour to regain its shape, and you’re done! The blue fabric side should always be located towards the bottom of the mattress, while the white fabric should face upwards. The embroidered Helix logo indicates the foot of the bed.
  • Is the packaging recyclable?
    All of our packaging materials are recyclable—including the box. Simply break it down and recycle it in the appropriate bins. Feeling creative? Show off your skills. We’ve seen customers make our packaging into rocket ships, bedside tables, even pet mansions. Share your creation and inspire others! Tag us in your photos @helixsleep #napcity
Safety
  • How safe are the materials in my Helix Mattress?
    The High-Grade Polyurethane Foam and Proprietary Helix Dynamic Foam used in our products are certified to be safe for both you and the environment. Our High-Grade Polyurethane Foams and our Helix Dynamic Foam are certified by the CertiPUR-US® program, which guarantees that they are made without any harmful chemicals including ozone depleters, PBDE flame retardants, mercury, lead, heavy metals, formaldehyde, and have extremely low impact on indoor air quality.
  • What safety tests have you done on my Helix Mattress?
    We’ve ensured that your Helix Mattress meets all of the strict safety regulations set forth by the US Federal Government. According to regulations 16 CFR Part 1633 and 16 CFR Part 1632, all mattresses sold in the US must pass an open flame test to evaluate how fire reacts to the bed and its components. Each of our beds contains a fire retardant barrier to comply with regulations. This material, otherwise known as an FR sock, is a fabric that encases our materials. The FR sock contains silica, which smothers and subdues a potential fire from spreading.
  • What is the warranty?
    Every Helix Sleep mattress comes with a 10 year warranty, protecting the customer from any defects in the materials or workmanship of the product that develop from normal and reasonable use. For additional details on our warranty, visit www.helixsleep.com/warranty. Please let us know if you think you need to claim your warranty.

  • Can I clean my Helix Mattress cover?
    Your Helix Mattress has a cover that can be removed, but we strongly recommend that you do not remove it. You can protect it from rips, tears, and stains by using a mattress protector. Do not machine wash or dry, bleach, or dry clean the cover. You can spot clean as needed with gentle soap and cold water. Make sure to air dry completely before putting on fresh sheets!
  • Do you have any favorite sheets or pillows?
    Your Helix Mattress needs whatever makes you feel comfortable! But we’re happy to share some of our favorites with you!

    For sheets: Standard sizes will fit your Helix mattress. However, it is recommended that the fitted pocket depth be 1-3” deeper than the depth of the mattress. If you will be using a mattress pad, topper or featherbed, be sure to factor in the height of those additional items. We recommend our friends at Brooklinen (for sheets as well as duvets and comforters). Brooklinen is built to deliver simple, beautiful home essentials at a fair price, including a 60 night risk free trial.

    For pillows: We recommend Brooklinen as well. The offer down and down-alternative pillows in varying firmness levels to accomodate all kinds of sleepers. Check them out at www.Brooklinen.com!
