The new wave of latex mattress that is sweeping the bedding market is the mattress that comes to the consumer in pieces and must be assembled once it is received. This mattress is truly a wonderful product and is often misunderstood. After it is assembled it resembles and sleeps like a traditional latex mattress. The benefits of this type of latex mattress are numerous. The shipping of the "break-down" mattress is very economical and affordable to a larger number of consumers. Traditional mattresses can be very costly to ship especially if they have to travel a long distance to get to the consumer. Lower shipping costs allow for a comfort exchange policy that affords the consumer the option to ship back a layer single layer of the mattress to achieve a different comfort level. If a consumer purchases the wrong comfort level of mattress they simply exchange one of the layers of the mattress. This makes for a very convenient transaction as the consumer usually sends back the layer they wish to exchange only after the new one is received from the company. This makes for no "down time" without a mattress. Buying a new mattress is a complicated nerve-racking endeavor that is rarely perfected in one try. Even when purchasing a mattress from a brick and mortar store you lie on the mattress for 15 minutes to determine if the new mattress will be comfortable for the next sevaral years. Then you get the mattress home and its not exactly what you wanted but you live with it because its such a hassle returning it. With this new type of mattress if you dont perfect it the first time you simply request a comfort exchange. By the time you decide you will do a comfort exchange you know exactly what the problem is. If the mattress is too firm you send back a firmer layer for a softer one. If the mattress is too soft you send back a soft layer for a firmer one. And the best part of all you dont have to decide the perfect combination in 15 minutes in a store. You sleep on the mattress at home and have usually up to 90 days depending on manufacturer to determine what it is you need to make the mattress perfect.
Another trick of the organic mattress trade is to use latex that has sand fillers. Technically the latex that uses sand fillers is still natural because sand is indeed natural. However if you are buying a latex mattress you want 100% natural LATEX. A reputable company manufacturing 100% natural Dunlop latex with no sand fillers is Green Latex. Latex International is the only company making 100% natural Talalay latex and they add no sand fillers to their latex. When shopping for your new organic latex mattress purchase from a company that buys their latex from these companies and you will know you are getting good latex in your mattress.
Another consideration when purchasing a new organic latex mattress is the type of cover that the manufacturer uses. The cover should be 100% organic. While there are different options for the type of material used in the cover cotton is the best option. Bamboo on the other hand is a poor choice because of the process it goes through to be made into a fabric. Many hazardous chemicals are required to process bamboo thus making it "un-organic." Most bamboo fabric is manufactured in China where the employees are subjected to poor working conditions and little or no ventilation. There are many "gimmick" fabrics available such as aloe vera and lavender infused fabrics that are supposed to help with one ailment or another. Honestly dont waste your money. They dont work. And if they did they wouldnt be able to make it through your sheets to get to your body. Hemp is good quality fabric but tends to be more expensive than cotton with no additional benefits. While the cover is the one part of the mattress that you will come in contact with many manufacturers use a cheap sometimes uncomfortable cover on their mattresses. The cover should be soft and comfortable to the touch. Although sheets should always be used on your mattress a rough uncomfortable cover will come through the sheets and make your sleeping experience less than desirable. If you are unsure about the cover that is being used to make your mattress ask for a sample to be sent to you so you can feel it out before you buy the mattress. Any reputable company would be more than happy to fill your request. A lot of companies will send you a sample pack of all the ingredients that make up their bed but this is simply overkill and an unnecessary gesture. Unless you are concerned about latex allergies the latex used in your mattress is pretty much the same from company to company.
Determine what new accessories youll need for your new bed. To further improve the support you get while you sleep you may also want to consider a new pillow. Like mattresses pillows are also made in a variety of materials. Besides traditional feather and down pillows now also incorporate combinations of latex rubber memory foam air chambers Intelli-gel and more. Finding a pillow to compliment the comfort your new bed provides will help turn your nights sleep from good to great. Also depending on the size mattress you purchased you purchased you may need new bedding. While a mattresss size is fairly standard in terms of its length and width there are a variety of mattress depths being used to incorporate some of the new materials weve discussed. By sure to check the depth of your new bed to determine whether youll need deep pocket sheets or larger blankets.
Coil Mattresses: Coil mattresses rely on steel coils that are tempered to give them additional strength and durability. The coils can be placed in a variety of different configurations to provide additional support to specific areas of the bed. A new coil spring beds is firm and is best at providing support for those who sleep on their back. In addition to being one of the more inexpensive mattress options on the market coil springs are also easy to maintain. Regularly flipping the mattress helps prevent sagging and ensures that you will get the most life out of your purchase. However coil mattresses have a shorter lifespan than some of the other options out there. They can begin to sag within a year and wear out within 5 to 7 years. If those using the bed sleep on their sides the mattress exerts greater pressure on the shoulders and hips causing spinal misalignment which can lead to back and neck pain.
