By Federal law, ANY AND ALL mattresses manufactured and sold in the United States must pass a flame test. Under the law, a mattress must be subjected to a flame for 70 seconds before it ignites. How this is achieved varies from manufacturer to manufacturer, but most manufacturers achieve this by using chemicals. These chemicals (Boric acid, Antimony and Decabromodiphenyl Oxide) are the same chemicals that have been banned in Europe for years and the same chemicals that are used in pesticides to kill roaches and have been linked to reproductive and developmental diseases, heart and lung damage, hair and memory loss, SIDS, birth defects, skin irritation and are believed to be carcinogens. Continued exposure to these chemicals cause accumulation in the body and present themselves in breast milk, the blood stream and in umbilical cord fluids.
Adjustable beds are becoming more and more popular but they are still very expensive. They make it easy to sleep or read as the bed can be raised or lowered as needed. They are also very helpful for people with medical conditions. GERD (acid reflux) patients find there is less pain sleeping in a raised position. In some situations the end of the bed raises and this can help patients who suffer from leg cramps. Most of these beds come as single beds. There are also double sized beds with the two sides independently adjustable. Some extreme adjustable beds can have up to 5 areas that can be altered. From the head to the feet and every point in between, these are considered the elite of adjustable beds. Because the mattresses are made especially to suit each bed it is best to purchase the two together.
Divans are simply boxes on wheels so they can be easily moved or boxes on legs so there is storage underneath. Sprung edge divans have coils or springs set on a frame. These are the most expensive style. Platform divans have a hardboard top and are quite firm. Firm edge divans are made with small durable springs in a wood frame. Flexible slatted divans are crafted with bendable wood creating a slight bounciness. The slat tension can be adjusted as needed on these flexible slatted beds.
The most useful latex rubber mattress may decrease pressure on joints and give better alignment of the spine, making a more peaceful sleep. They are also hypo-allergenic plus they naturally resist dust mites, which may be a reward for a person who tends to suffer with allergies. Latex is moreover recognized for its strength. This sort of mattress pads produced from latex foam rubber can last for up to thirty years. Seeing that they are easily malleable, natural latex mattress pads require a more supportive bed base, including a slat frame mattress platform.
The latex foam rubber found in mattress toppers and mattresses is extra sturdy and a fine product constructed from latex rubber should keep going for many years. Although, for any person who isn’t likely to or will never lash out to absolutely get rid of their present mattress, but also crave added support, a different idea is to purchase a latex foam mattress topper. This sort of latex foam mattress topper can add great extra softness to a bed that appears too solid.
