Some organic mattress manufacturers produce an organic product only to spray it down with these chemicals to pass the flame law test. So while you are buying an organic mattress that does not necessarily mean you are buying a chemical-free mattress. It only means you are buying a mattress made with organic materials that have been sprayed with chemicals. Imagine the hypocrisy! This is where the importance of organic wool becomes apparent. Naturally wool is a fire retardant. Wool doesnt burn when exposed to a flame. When wool is used in an ample amount (an inch compressed) it becomes a fire retardant that passes the federal flame law requirements making chemicals no longer necessary. While it is more costly to use wool a true organic mattress manufacturer goes the extra step to be sure that your mattress is chemical free and truly organic. By the way there are other fire-proofing methods available that are not chemical but they also are not natural or organic. Be sure to ask if the manufacturer is using organic wool for fire retardant in the organic mattress.
Visco Elastic/Memory Foam Mattresses: Originally developed by NASA to make the pressure of space shuttle lift-offs more bearable the foam has seen drastic reductions in price in recent years and is now a popular mattress material. The material gets its name from its ability to conform to the shape of an object and retain that shape for a period of time. While visco-elastic beds are typically more expensive than their coil counterparts the quality can vary widely and is one of the main contributors to its price. Good quality memory foam means a firm bed that will evenly distribute your weight regardless of how you sleep. Some memory foams also respond to heat by becoming even more soft. Memory foam has lifespans between 10 and 20 years depending on quality. For those who have never owned a visco-elastic foam bed before there is typically a period of getting used to the "weightless" feeling the bed induces. New memory foam mattress owners may also notice a strong odor. While the odor does fade with time it can continue to cause irritation so be on the lookout for complaints from those sleeping on the bed. Also memory foam by nature retains heat which some users find uncomfortable.
I will begin by explaining the most basic mattress to very specific innovative techniques. Most mattress used to be simple open coil mattresses in which the springs are interconnected. The disadvantage of open coil sprung mattresses is that any movement in the night effects your whole body as well as your partner. Sprung mattresses often do not take into consideration different parts of the body and are not ergonomic which can cause back pains. The reason for purchasing a sprung mattress is often its low price but for just a few pounds more you can already have a far better mattress.
