What is the weight limit for Podium?

All Podium bed frames are rated to safely support up to 650 lbs total.

Yes, provided that your bed frame does not have a fixed central rail or non-removable slats. 

Every Podium comes with adjustable legs with three height settings: 7”, 10”, and 13”. Make sure you measure your bed frame before you assemble your Podium, so you know how high you need to extend the adjustable bed.

This design allows your Podium to sit neatly and seamlessly in the middle of the bed frame. Luckily, this is also the most common way bed frames are sold.

Fabric Care

For liquid spills, blot the area with a clean, dry cloth. When spot cleaning, use a lightly dampened sponge or a vacuum with a soft brush to remove dirt and debris from the upholstery. For deeper cleaning, you can use a cloth dampened with warm water. Alternatively, a soft-bristle brush can also be used to remove dirt. 

After cleaning, simply let the fabric dry.

Metal and Plastic Care

All metal and plastic portions of the bed frame can be wiped down with a damp cloth.

How can I keep my Podium in great shape for as long as possible?

There are a few ways that you can keep your Podium up and running for a long time to come:

  1. Care for the fabric
  2. Do not exceed Podium’s weight limit (650 lbs)
  3. Do not continuously operate the lifting and lowering mechanisms for more than the recommended 2 minutes per 18-minute time period, as specified in the instruction manual.
  4. Keep the bed frame away from both direct sunlight and heating sources.
  5. Follow any other recommendations you see in the manual.

Please note: A certain amount of wear and tear is normal after using your Podium for a while.
