Q. Why should I buy a Maiden Maine mattress from Daly Bros.?
A. At Daly Bros., we make our mattresses with higher quality materials than most of the “Major Brand” mattresses made today. You can get a higher quality mattress at a lower price because you are not paying for the national advertising and middleman markup that you do with the big names. We keep our overhead low and pass the savings on to you.

Q. Do I have to flip a Daly Bros. Maiden Maine mattress and is the padding the same on both sides?
A. The real question is not do I “have” to but “can” I flip it? And the answer is yes you can. Most national brands try to tell you that it is to your advantage to have a “One Sided” mattress but the real advantage is for the manufacturer. Instead of putting the padding on both sides they only put it on one side and make more money. Daly Bros. gives you padding on both sides so you can turn it over and get a much longer life out of your mattress. We don’t sell you half a mattress like the other guys.

Q  Does Daly Bros. give free frames with a new mattress set?
A.
No one really gives away free frames. Other companies include the cost of the frame in the price of the product. If you don’t need a frame the retailer comes out ahead. We price our frames separately so if you don’t need a frame you don’t have to pay for one. We carry bed frames that can be purchased separately for your new mattress set if you need one.

Q. How do the innersprings used by Daly Bros. compare to the ones used by the national manufactures?
A.
Daly Bros. uses innersprings made by the same companies that make springs for many national mattress manufacturers. Sometimes they will make a slight change in the spring to give the national manufacturer something “unique” to advertise but the support and durability remain the same. Just about all higher end spring designs are very good today and will give good support and last the life of the mattress. What almost always breaks down in a mattress is not the spring but the inferior padding used by many manufacturers today.

Q. What is the warranty on a Daly Bros. Maiden Maine mattress?
A.
We warranty our mattresses against defects in materials and workmanship for 15 years, and this is a non-prorated warranty unlike most national brands.  This does not mean the mattress will feel the same over its entire life. Like most things, a mattress will slowly wear over time but with the quality of the materials we use our mattresses will last many years. The average life of a mattress should be around 10 to 15 years depending upon the amount of use and the weight of the people using it.

Q. How much does Daly Bros. charge for delivery and where do you deliver?
A.
We deliver at no extra charge to most of York county and southern Cumberland county. In order to keep our expenses low, and pass those savings on to our customers, we limit our delivery area. We will be happy to help you load your purchase in your vehicle if you are coming from outside of our delivery area.

Q. What makes one foam better than another?
A.
 Foams used in padding mattresses are rated for two different characteristics, density and firmness. Density refers to the weight of the foam per cubic foot. A foam with a higher density means there is more foam and less air in a cubic foot of the product. In a higher density foam, the “struts” that make up the cells of the foam are thicker resulting in a more durable product. These thicker struts in higher density foam resist fatiguing and taking a set longer than those in a lower density foam giving you a longer lasting mattress. The density does not relate to how firm the foam is only to its’ durability.
The second rating of a foam is it’s ILD or Indentation Load Deflection. This refers to the foam’s firmness. This number represents the amount of force it takes to compress a 4” sample of the foam  1” (25% of it’s thickness).  The higher the number, the more force it takes to compress the foam and the firmer it is.
Two foams can have the same ILD, e.g.  35, but different densities. This means that they may feel the same when new but the higher density foam will last longer than the lower density foam. Foams are given a four digit number representing the products specifications, such as 2627. The first two digits represent the density. In this example 26 means 2.6 Lbs per cubic foot, a decimal point is always added between the first two digits to determine the density. The second two digits represent the ILD or firmness of the foam.

Q. How does the foam in a Daly Bros. mattress compare to the foams used in other mattresses?
A.
We use higher density foams than most other manufacturers to give a longer lasting product.

Top


Q. Why don’t other manufacturers use higher density foams?
A.
Cost. Higher density foams cost much more than lower density foams. When a mattress is new and on the showroom floor the consumer can’t tell the difference between two foams of the same ILD. Many manufacturers save money by putting low density firm foams in their products. The consumer doesn’t find out until a few years down the road when low density foam breaks downs and no longer gives the consumer the support it should.

Q. How many coils are there in a good mattress?
A.
The industry standard has always been to use the number of coils in a full size mattress innerspring to designate the “Coil Count”. A 312 Bonnell spring has 312 coils in a full size mattress, less in a twin and more in a queen. Many manufacturers today quote the number of coils in a queen size mattress because it is a more common size people are purchasing these days. So what may be a 660 coil in industry terms is referred to as an 800 coil in sales promotion. At Daly Bros. we still go by the industry standard and refer to our coil counts by the number in a full size mattress. We consider any spring with a coil count of 368 and above to be a premium spring capable of lasting the life of the mattress even with heavier people using the product. An innerspring with a coil count of 312 is still good for every night use by children and adults of average weight and will still last a long time.

Q. I have seen cheaper mattresses at some of those “Discount Warehouse” stores, why are they cheaper?
A.
We could make cheaper, low end, promotional bedding too, but prefer to give our customers a quality product that will last. Those low end mattresses are made of poor quality materials that may feel good on the showroom floor but break down in a very short time. We make our mattress with higher quality materials so they will last longer. Buying a mattress by price only will cost more in the long run because you will have to replace it much more often.

Q. What are the sizes of mattresses today?
A.
 All mattresses start from innersprings made to national standards for size. The finished size can vary depending upon the construction of the mattress. Some constructions have more padding going over the edge of the spring than others resulting in a variation of +/-  1 or 2 inches.
Twin: 38” x 75”
Twin XL: 38” x 80”
Full: 53” x 75”
Queen: 60” x 80”
King: 76” x 80”

Q. How do I care for my new mattress?
A.
Use of a good mattress pad will keep your mattress clean and extend its life.

Top


Q. How often should I turn/flip my mattress?
A.
You should alternate between turning (spinning around from head to foot) and flipping (turning over) every couple of weeks for the first months and every few months after that. This helps the mattress to wear evenly and extends its life.

Q. My old mattress had large body impressions, how do I prevent that?
A.
Large body impressions are caused by low quality padding that breaks down and collapses or shifts with use. Using higher density foams, as Daly Bros. does, helps prevent this from happening. Also, we cement the layers to each other in our pillow tops to prevent them from shifting around and forming lumps or ridges. All mattresses, even ours, will show some settling of the layers of padding where you sleep and this is normal with today’s thickly padded mattresses and not a sign of the mattress breaking down.  In a mattress with quality padding, these impressions should be small, usually less than an inch. Turning and flipping (which you can do with our mattresses) helps reduce this and extends the life of your mattress. We have seen mattresses with low quality padding have impressions or sags exceeding 3 inches!
