This second latex replacement mattress did well until we’d had it almost one year, and then once again we noticed sagging with slight valleys where we lay. This time I did some investigating and found that the company that made my 35-year old latex mattress was in business again, but the closest retailer that carried their brand was three hours away. We made the trip one weekend only to find that the company had cheapened the way it was building its latex mattresses. We found a large cube of solid latex in a clear zippered plastic case beside a latex mattress, which led us to believe that the mattress was made of this solid latex. But when we lifted the mattress to see if it was ’heavy’ latex like our 35-year old latex mattress, we were very surprised to discover how lightweight this new mattress was! After talking to the store owner, we learned that the old manufacturer had sold its company along with its company name, and the new owners were sandwiching a thin piece of latex in between layers of polyurethane foam, and edging it with polyurethane foam around the outside edges, which he said would extend the life of this so-called ’latex’ mattress. We then discovered that the mattress was finished on ONE-SIDE ONLY. I will never understand how these new features would benefit the consumer, but I can see how the life of this so-called ’latex’ mattress is shortened, which clearly benefits the mattress manufacturers.

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.

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.

If that’s the case you’ll want to find a mattress you can both agree is suitable, even if it’s not your first choice. To properly evaluate each possibility you should lay on the mattress the same way as you’ll be sleeping each night. Be sure to lay on the mattress for at least a few minutes. Some of the materials used in mattresses respond to both weight and heat, and can take several minutes to fully adjust to your body. If you move quickly from one bed to another you may be missing out on all a mattress has to offer. Finally be sure to learn as much about the advantages and disadvantages of each mattress material. To give you a starting point we will cover the most significant features of each material below.

Even if you can sort through them, there are many different brands, different models, and, of course, very different prices! Mattress advertising tends to be frenetic and you may notice that some mattress sales people are a little, well, overcaffeinated. Finding your way through the maze without overspending or buying the wrong mattress can be tough. Here are a few brief tips to help you before you step foot in your first mattress show room.
Tonia Nieves Mattress, 2017-01-27 00:40:06. 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.

It is also cheaper than the other memory foam. The mattress is a good choice for people who are allergic to latex. At the same time, the mattress is a great choice for the person who wants to be a little more comfortable with the bed. The memory foam mattress is a popular choice for people who have a high allergy to the body.

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.\"

Known for their durability, they also have anti-allergy and anti-microbial characteristics. These mattresses bounce back to their original shape as soon as you get off the bed. Pressure is evenly distributed too. A viscose elastic or memory foam bed is made of polyurethane foam. It does not respond as quickly as a latex foam mattress but is excellent at relieving pressure points on the body. This foam mattress has several different densities making some harder than others. Polyurethane foam beds are petroleum based. They too come in different densities and are one of the more popular foam beds.

Note that sometimes department stores will offer their own line of mattresses which, in reality, are made by the major manufacturers and may even correspond to a mattress you could buy at a discount house. If you shop for mattresses at furniture stores or department stores, you will probably see higher-priced merchandise. The salesperson may be able to tell you who manufactures the house brand of mattress; you can then pick up the same or similar mattress at a discount outlet.

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.
