Frequently asked questions
Mattresses need minimal care to guarantee their maintenance in terms of hygiene and comfort.
We recommended rotating (left and right) and flipping if the mattress is double-sided (headboard to footboard). Perform these operations more frequently during the first few months of use for an optimal product efficiency.
Subsequently, we recommend the following: January and July are the months in which you can rotate the mattress, and April and October are the “chosen” months to flip it over or rotate it if the mattress is single-sided, thus guaranteeing a proper maintenance.
Cleaning the mattress with a HEPA-filter vacuum once a year is a good way to guarantee a proper maintenance, as it helps to eliminate possible allergens present in it.
We recommend regularly ventilating the room in order to maintain a healthy and pleasant climate. If your product contains mould stains, these are due to excess moisture, a room temperature that’s too low and a lack of air circulation.
When purchasing a mattress, there are various important points to take into account. One of them is that the mattress should always adapt to the person sleeping on it, and never the other way round. In the case of people who suffer from back pain (lumbago or sciatica attacks), a mattress can help alleviate it.
Why can a wrong choice of mattress increase back pain? Fundamentally because it does not help keep it well aligned and increases pressure points. In the case of lower back pain or sciatica, the best choice will be a medium firmness mattress, although very hard mattresses are not the solution for fixing back pain.
When the mattress is firm enough, the muscles relax, the spine is aligned correctly, the back suffers much less and the shoulders and hips are much more comfortable.
One last fact! Although this is not directly related to the most appropriate mattress choice, if you have back pain, you should sleep on your back with a pillow under your knees. It may also be a good idea to sleep on your side with a pillow between your legs.
Pikolin Contract is not a specific model, but rather a range of Pikolin products that can be enjoyed at hotels.
You can contact us to discover your rest preferences, and we will recommend a Pikolin mattress that suits your needs.
The mattress deteriorates as its use progresses, like any product made with mechanical elements. It gradually loses its capacity to provide the comfort it had when you bought it. For an ordinary use, ASOCAMA (the Spanish Association of Mattress Manufacturers) recommends changing your mattress at least every 10 years for hygiene and health purposes.
For a normal use, we recommend up to 120 kg per person, that is, 240 kg for a two-person mattress. For use by a person weighing 90 kg, ASOCAMA (the Spanish Association of Mattress Manufacturers) recommends changing your mattress at least every 10 years. If you weigh above 90 kg, the ideal mattress will be one with good back support, especially Normablock springs.
Every person has a different sensitivity to heat, which is why we have a wide range of products that adapt to different sensitivities. At Pikolin, we also have the FreshPIK mattress, which is the most ideal for heat-sensitive people. In all cases, we recommend spring and visco-free technology. You can consult our FreshPIK mattress here.
Our products are manufactured with materials that meet all requirements demanded by the current legislation to ensure that they only use materials that are not harmful to health.
Yes, triple barrier® is an exclusive Pikolin technology that acts on mites, bacteria and fungi, covering the widest spectrum of allergenic threats. It is a treatment applied to the mattress padding and side covers that works as a permanent filter.
Our Bultex® mattresses have the “Barrera Total®” (Total Barrier); they incorporate this powerful ingredient that permanently provides hygienic protection from the very heart of the mattress, acting against mites, bacteria and fungi. You can consult all of our technologies here.
The SanityPik mattress is a mattress that was endorsed by the Spanish Association of Allergology.
Yes, the triple barrier® is an exclusive Pikolin technology that acts against mites and bacteria. The mattresses can be double or single-sided. If it is one-sided, the label is placed in such a way that the reading directions cause the sleeping side to be face up. If it is two-sided, most of the time it is the same on both sides, and the label location does not matter. If it has a winter side and a summer side. The label and embroidered handles always indicate that the winter side should be on top with the correct direction for reading the label.
The height of our mattresses is an approximate measurement, as it is a product with a padded finish whose height may vary slightly. This can be a variation of +/- 1 cm. This is based on the European UNE-EN 1334 quality standard. This standard indicates that, when measuring mattresses, a tolerance of +/- 1 cm must be considered. Also, for mattresses that are sent rolled up, they may take a few hours to regain their height after being unpacked. You can find out more information about how to measure the height at this link.
The height of the mattress will depend on the free space of your trundle bed and whether you want to store the mattress dressed (with the bed made) or undressed. You need to make sure you know the specific measurements of the product you are interested in, verifying the width and length in the corresponding technical data sheet.
With our trundle beds, you can choose from several alternatives (two heights for a trundle bed with a bed base and one height for a trundle bed with an upholstered base):
LT11702 Height +/- 42cm (2SR4003+1KT47013+1KT47050)
LT11704 Height +/- 38cm (2SR4003+1KT47013+1KT47049)
Two SR40003 bed bases + one KT47050 (upper sling kit) + one KT47013 (lower sling kit) form a complete trundle bed. In order to be able to remove the lower bed without any problems, the lower mattress must not measure more than 23 cm high without bedding. (Recommended Apple Compact CP17839 and Apple Mattress CP17838)
Height +/-20 cm – CP17839
Height +/-16 cm – CP17838
It is formed by two SR40003 bed bases + one KT47049 (upper sling kit) + one KT47013 (lower sling kit), which form a complete trundle bed. In order to be able to remove the lower bed without any problems, the lower mattress must not measure more than 18 cm high without bedding. (Recommended Apple mattress CP17838).
If you prefer both sides of the trundle bed, upper and lower, to be the same height, you can opt for 2 mattresses of 20 cm (recommended Apple Compact CP17839)
LT11703 Height +/- 38cm (2DL12080+1KT09881+1KT09880)
It is formed by two DL12080 bed bases + one KT09880 (upper sling kit) + one KT09881 (lower sling kit). In order to be able to remove the lower bed without any problems, the lower mattress must not measure more than 19 cm high without bedding. (Recommended Apple Mattress CP17838).
Height +/-16 cm – CP 17838
Mattresses designed for adjustable bed bases have special construction characteristics, some of them with profiling (transversal marks made on the mattress block) whose objective is to facilitate the folding of the mattress without damaging it. On our website, we have some models suitable for an adjustable bed base such as ActivePIK Art, Casiopea Art, Emotion Art, Bit Art, Sensium, Pole and Art 20 Nova. You can consult all of our mattresses for an adjustable bed.
Mattresses are designed to be used completely lying down so that the weight is distributed across the entire surface. When sitting on the edge of a mattress, it is normal for it to sink more than the mattress yields when lying down. For this reason, it is not considered a manufacturing defect.
It is a rest imprint that is produced in the mattress due to the padding, which complies with the tolerance expressed in the guarantee certificate. It is normal behaviour that does not imply it is going to get any worse. For this, we recommend rotating and flipping it (if the mattress has two sides), especially in the first few weeks of use.
Our mattresses are designed to minimise your partner’s movements, although the best way to avoid noticing them is with the DualPIK Dual and ActivePik Dual pocket coil spring mattresses.
In our mattresses, visco is merely one element of the mattress construction; it does not have a decisive influence on the level of comfort provided by it. The level of comfort of the mattress is defined by the set of layers. A high content of visco may cause the mattress to be excessively soft, which is why it is not always better to have more centimetres of visco.
Most mattresses are two-sided; both are equal, and the direction of the label does not matter.
In mattresses with visco, side A (with visco) is the one that, when facing up, has the label in such a way that it can be read from the front.
If the mattress has a winter and summer side, even if they are not visco, the label on the side always reads from right to left with the winter side on top.
On the website you can consult the models that have a washable cover. We recommend dry cleaning the following models:
- CP17877 - Emotion Art
- CP15895 - Bit Articulado
- CP15769 - Casiopea Art
- CM11843 - EcoPIK
- CL16874 - Pole
- CP17870 - Art20 Nova
The PikUp Kids models have a removable cover to guarantee maximum hygiene and mattress durability. Thanks to its built-in zipper, you can wash the cover in the washing machine with total ease whenever you wish:
The PikUp Baby model incorporates a water-repellent treatment, which prevents both moderate water pressure and moisture. Unlike waterproof fabrics, water-repellent fabrics provide some breathability and prevent liquid from being absorbed. Moreover, thanks to its built-in zipper, you can wash the cover in the washing machine with total ease whenever you wish. PikUp Baby - CP21760
The core of our mattresses is designed with high resilience foam that offers the maximum level of satisfaction in product tests, in line with the organisation of the different layers and materials that the product is made of. The comfort level of a mattress is the combination of the different layers, each of which has different characteristics.
As indicated in our guarantee certificate, mattresses may give off odours when unpacked. This is due to the composition of each model and to the hygienic plastic that protects it during shipping. However, this odour is normal and in no way harmful to health. This odour will disappear naturally in a few weeks, but if you want to speed up this process, we recommend that you ventilate the bedroom daily and avoid making the bed as soon as you get up, as this favours the aeration of the rest equipment.
A child needs a high firmness but comfortable mattress. Bear in mind that with this age group, it is important to protect the mattress with a waterproof and, above all, breathable protective cover for the child’s greatest comfort. Mattresses for children are recommended for weights up to 45 kg.
A rolled-up mattress, or in other words, a bed in a box, is a mattress that is placed in a box for express shipping to your home. It is a functional, very practical and comfortable rest concept with delivery and service in less than 72 hours.
These mattresses are designed so that they can be rolled up and remain in that state only for the time needed to make the delivery, since they should be stored flat. They are rolled up to facilitate their transportation, as it allows them to be delivered in smaller vehicles, consuming less fuel, thus reducing the environmental impact and speeding up delivery times (delivery time of 72 hours). Of course, once you receive the product, you must unroll it within 15 days; otherwise, it may not recover its height.
Remember that it is a rolled-up mattress, not a rollable one. Once it’s at your home, you cannot roll it up again. Additionally, given the characteristics of express delivery, we do not remove the used mattress. You can find all our rolled-up mattresses enrollados models here.
The mattress will only need 2 hours to retake its shape.
It is minimal time, as it is rolled up when the order is made and is only inside the box during shipping.
We do not recommend keeping the mattress rolled up for more than 15 days.
Bases and bed bases
The mechanism of the storage base is designed to be used with a mattress; therefore, if you do not have a mattress on the folding base and you try to lower the lid, you will notice that it rises by itself. This mechanism works as such so that, on a daily basis, the manual opening can be made with little force when opening the storage base.
On Pikolin.com, as specified in the product description, the bed bases and bases are sold with 4 legs, which are included in the price indicated on the website, and this of course is only the RRP that applies to Pikolin.com. Each distributor will indicate the price and whether legs are included or not.
The legs for upholstered bases have a different reference from the legs for bed bases.
Bed bases need two sets of legs with reference JP18040 . (If you purchase a Pikolin bed base on the website, the legs are included in the price of the product)
Upholstered bases are preferably installed with two sets of JP18000 legs or three JP18000, that is, six legs for people who are overweight..
If you need to join 2 bed bases together, you would only need to purchase 1 additional set of JP18049 legs.
If you need to join 2 upholstered bases together, you will need to purchase one set of VR9844 union flat strips and 2 additional sets of P18000 legs.
The legs for bed bases and divanlins all have a metric of 10.
It is delivered disassembled to facilitate transportation. The lid of the folding base for measurements less than 135 cm wide comes in one part. The lids for measurements greater than 160 cm wide are delivered in 2 parts. The thickness of the lid is 5 cm. The remaining parts are delivered in different boxes, in other words, the side rails, sides, bottom, pistons and screws are all loose elements that our specialised team brings in and assembles inside the home. It is important that you tell us the access measurements and if there are stairs (for two-story homes).
We have folding storage bases with a double lid and a measurement of 150 cm wide or higher, which facilitates their delivery to addresses with difficult access.
To correctly measure the height of folding storage bases, you must take into account that the height we indicate is the total height of the storage base. In other words, the sum of the height of the basin and the height of the lid. This can be a variation of +/- 1 cm.
To convert two Pikolin bed bases into a trundle bed, you will need a Reinforced Upper Sling Kit and a Lower Sling Kit.
This is a type of installation that the Pikolin installers do not do. If you decide to make holes in the headboard, it would be at your own risk and you would lose the guarantee.
The lid is a rectangular metal structure with a central bar and 5 bolsters perpendicular to the central bar. On top of it is a plate, upholstered in a laminated polyether fabric and a mesh.
There is always a manufacturing tolerance of +/- 2 cm.
Bed bases have a central bar in measurements greater than 105 cm wide.
This is not possible. Our lids have a Breathable Base Air System (B.A.S.) manufactured with internal elements and 3D fabric to facilitate the optimal air circulation and aeration of the rest equipment.
All our folding storage bases are mounted directly on the floor, so they do not need legs.
Rigid storage bases (these are not folding storage bases) can be installed with various legs, but we recommend those that are 10 cm high. Storage base 12021 measures 21 cm, but the height of the storage base with the standard legs stands at 31 cm, which is the most common.
The width of Pikolin pillows depends on the material they are made of:
- Latex width: approximately 40 cm.
- Visco width: approximately 35 cm.
- Fibre width: approximately 35-37 cm.
The low firmness fibre pillows are specially designed for children. It is a good option if you are looking for a comfortable and soft pillow, or if your chosen rest position is on your stomach. Although sleeping on your stomach is the least recommended position, at Pikolin we offer the best pillows for sleeping in this position.
High firmness pillows are ideal for sleeping on your side. We recommend a pillow that allows your neck to be in a good position with respect to the rest of your body. You can view our recommended pillows for side sleepers here.
High-firmness or medium-high firmness pillows are suitable for sleeping on your back as they correctly control the weight of the neck and head on the mattress, guaranteeing a correct rest position. You will find a selection of pillows for sleeping on your back here.
Down pillows are machine washable. Use delicate programmes that, in principle, should not exceed 40 degrees and spin at low revolutions.
Sometimes geese have feathers in this colour, therefore it is completely natural. It is neither a defect nor dirt on the product.
Our viscoelastic leg pillow is designed to relieve pain in the legs and knees. It is an ergonomic pillow with high firmness, is foldable and has a zippered cover that can be removed for washing. Ideal if you sleep on your side with your knees together or like to rest with your legs up.
We have a wide range of ergonomic visco pillows adapted to different needs.
Toppers, duvets, covers and protectors
The topper arrives crated in plastic which must be disposed of to remove the topper and once unrolled, it cannot be rolled up again.
The useful life of toppers is like that of mattresses: around 10 years.
The protector must have the same measurement as the bed, both in width and in length. Always take into account the height of the mattress and choose a protector with the appropriate height.
The mattress protector fits the mattress with its rubber bands on the sides, just like a fitted sheet, protecting the top of the mattress. On the contrary, the cover covers the mattress in its entirety, including the lower side, and closing with a zipper on one side.
La membrana Smartseal garantiza la total impermeabilidad en la superficie. No obstante, los laterales han sido confeccionados con tejido elástico para un mejor ajuste, y éstos no son impermeables.The Smartseal membrane guarantees impermeability on the surface. However, the sides have been made with elastic fabric for a better fit, and they are not water-resistant.
If you are looking for a protector that also protects the sides, we recommend our water-resistant mattress covers.
Our water-resistant protectors are made with a very thin lower PU sheet, which does not produce noise.
Depending on the size of the bed, we will need a different sized duvet.

The down filling is very effective if you want to sleep warm but without the heavy feeling. It is easier to transport and is ideal if you live in a humid climate, as it absorbs moisture.
The heat provided by a fibre filling is directly proportional to its weight; for a higher calorific level, you need more weight. One of its advantages is that it is made from hypoallergenic fibres, which is very important if you have allergies.

It is normal that when the filling is in a bag for a while, the feather concentrates in some specific points of it. Simply aerate the product so that it distributes evenly again.
