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.

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.

People with lumbar disc problems have symptoms that include a shooting pain in one leg from the top of the buttock to the lower leg or foot accompanied by numbness, the feeling of \"pins and needles\", or leg weakening. Those suffering from this condition would benefit from a firm mattress as a bending or flexing mattress can be very uncomfortable.

A supportive mattress will offer the right balance of support and concavity in order to allow the spine to align naturally. There are several components of the mattress that contribute to how supportive a mattress set is. First, mattress springs and coils are the most important features of a mattress that provide back support. The coil gauge of mattress denotes how stiff or firm a mattress is. The lower the gauge of the coil, the thicker and stiffer the wire, thus, the firmer the mattress. Furthermore, the higher the coil count of a mattress, the better the quality. However, a higher coil count does not necessarily mean a more comfortable or supportive mattress.

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.

An uncomfortable mattress can have a negative effect on the quantity and quality of your sleep. This is especially the case for millions of back pain sufferers who have been ill advised over the last several decades that a firm mattress is best for them. In actuality there are several factors to consider when choosing the best mattress for you, including: the type of back problem you are experiencing, your sleep position, mattress support, and your comfort preference.

They don’t transfer motion well, meaning that one person can roll over and the other person not feel it. They’re also good mattresses for folks with allergies, since they don’t harbor dust mites and other nasty allergens. If you’ve never tried a foam mattress, you need to sprawl out on a couple in some show rooms to see what the fuss is about.
Tonia Nieves Mattress, 2017-08-24 20:53:17. Before shopping for a mattress you need to arm yourself with pertinent information. First determine what type of bed is best for you. Do you like soft or hard beds? Would you prefer a standard mattress or a foam mattress? If you are not sure, go try out a few different mattress types. Second, consider your budget. This is not a purchase you want to scrimp on, as a poor night’s sleep can affect your whole day. Try to get as much value as you can for your budget. Finally, size is a very important factor especially if there is more than one person sleeping in the bed. Ideally, you should both be able to lie on the bed with your arms behind your heads and not touch. A bed needs to be 10-15 cm longer than the tallest person sleeping in that bed. Also pay attention to the height. Lower beds can be easy to get into but harder to get out of. High beds can be hard to get into, especially for shorter people, but very easy to hop out of in the morning.
Carolina Lee Mattress, 2017-08-22 23:53:00. Do you ever wake-up feeling more tired than when you went to bed? Or do you feel pain in your lower back, or other parts of your body? Do you wake up in the night feeling hot and sweaty? Are you or your partner tossing and turning in the night, keeping each other awake? All these sleeping problems are common, and while sometimes caused by a serious sleeping disorder, most of the time it is simply a case of an unsuitable mattress. This is largely caused by people purchasing cheap mattresses, the wrong type of mattress for their needs or never changing their mattress. Sometimes you might not even be aware of the fact that the mattress you are using is not suitable for you. An example of this is that many people experience back problems but purchase a soft or medium feel mattress, while they can drastically reduce pain by a good pressure relief and firm mattress. Mattresses are personal and for each problem there is a specific mattress with a solution.

You will find that the majority of the large mattress manufacturers, who have been in business for generations, have since resold their companies. Many of these new owners and share holders are interested in generating large, immediate returns on their investments. They have redesigned and marketed their mattresses to put big profits in their pockets, but the shortcuts they are making to increase their profits are reducing the useful life of their mattresses. You do the math. If they all get together and decide to cut the life of their products in half, we consumers are forced to buy their products MORE OFTEN and they all profit even more. For example: One of their shortcuts and marketing tactics is designed to sell you on the benefits of purchasing a \"one-sided\" mattress, but in reality, the life of your mattress has been cut in half and you will need to buy at least twice as many mattresses in your lifetime if you want to sleep comfortably. In my search for the perfect latex mattress, I actually spoke to one mattress store owner years ago who admitted she wished they would ’bring back’ the 2-sided latex mattresses.

A memory foam mattress is denser than other mattresses. Because of this, a memory foam mattress is more supportive, though it is heavier. It comes in between the comfort of a really soft mattress and the stiffness and solidness of a firm one, making it a good compromise. A memory foam mattress of good quality is able to distribute weight evenly, which is like having your weight supported by billions of springs. A memory foam mattress has cells that deform whenever weight is applied. Unlike a spring mattress, which springs always exert pressure against your body’s weight, the cells in the memory foam mattress fully compress and spread their air pressure to the adjoining cells. The pressure is then spread to more cells of the mattress, so the pressure you feel is also reduced. This is responsible for greatly reducing the pressure points. Sleeping on such a mattress significantly reduces the pressure points on your body by up to 80%, therefore leading to good blood circulation. With these particular kind of mattresses, all the tossing and turning which makes you unable to get a good night’s sleep is greatly reduced.

When she learned I’d gotten engaged, she invited me to her home one day to suggest I purchase a latex mattress like hers. She pulled the sheets off her king size bed so that she could show me how the mattress had not sagged, and pointed out how the corners and edges were still firm after an extraordinary amount of time. I wish I could remember the exact number of years she’d told me that she and her husband had been using their mattress, but I do remember that because of her little demonstration, I knew that I wanted to purchase a latex mattress just like it even though I later found that it would cost me about twice what the average ’spring’ mattresses were selling for at the time. I searched the local furniture stores, but could not find this latex mattress anywhere. I remembered that when we had moved south, my mother had purchased much of her furniture from a sales rep at a large furniture store in a nearby town. He said that although the store did not stock this mattress, he could order it, and I asked him to order a solid latex mattress for me \"SIGHT UNSEEN.\"
