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 it’s not exactly what you wanted, but you live with it because it’s such a hassle returning it. With this new type of mattress, if you don’t 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 don’t 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.
We also learned that the two previous solid latex mattresses we owned began to \"sink and fail\" after one year because they were not made of the firmer Dunlop Latex. They were made of the newer Talalay Latex, which is processed by incorporating more air which can potentially cause the mattress to compress and soften over time. After learning the differences between the two manufacturing processes, I relate an Angle Cake with the softer Talalay Latex, and I relate a Pound Cake with the firmer Dunlop Latex. I’d even talked to the Talalay mattress manufacturer that made both of our latex mattresses which softened after only one year. One of their customer service reps told me that she loved how her Talalay mattress softened over time and \"conformed\" to her body to cushion it. I told her that she was still very young and what she considered cushioning, my husband and I considered uncomfortable valleys. We personally required and expected a mattress to provide the support our bodies needed for more than one, five, or possibly seven years. The company did replace that first Talalay mattress that failed after the first year, but they would not replace the second one. And, BUYER BEWARE: All mattress warranties are not the same. Please read and \"understand\" ALL the conditions of your warranty BEFORE you purchase your mattress.
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.
