Carolina Lee. Mattress. August 16th , 2017.
Unlike the story of \"Goldilocks and the Three Bears,\" where Goldilocks tried sleeping on two beds before she found that the third bed was just right for her -- my nickname is Goldilocks, but this is not a fairy tale. This is a TRUE STORY about finding my perfect latex mattress 40 years ago, when I purchased my first bed, and my difficult search to find a replacement.
About one year later, we noticed we weren’t sleeping as comfortably because our new latex mattress was sagging with slight valleys on either side of the bed where each of us lay. We called the manufacturer. It took a while for him to come check on it, but when he did see it, he said that it didn’t look like it was sagging. I reminded him that when I’d called him, I’d told him that he wouldn’t see the sagging -- he had to lay on the bed to feel the valleys. He did not lay on the bed, but he did push his hands down into the mattress in several different areas and he was surprised to see how deep his hands \"sunk down\" into the mattress... like there was not much support.
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.
In continuing my online search for my perfect latex mattress, I discovered a very caring and helpful mattress manufacturer. Lee Carter, the owner and now my new friend, has a wealth of personal experience building mattresses and has an abundance of knowledge concerning the mattress industry. He has revealed important insider information that I was not aware of, such as a new government regulation which has caused mattress manufacturers to use chemicals to make fire resistant mattresses. Was the general public notified of this new regulation? Not only was I concerned about exposing my body to the potentially harmful chemicals in a new mattress, chemicals can also emit fumes and odors, which could cause me to become nauseated due to my sensitivity to smells. To my knowledge, Lee Carter owns the only company that offers its customers \"chemical free\" mattresses after simply obtaining a qualified prescription.
