What’s Really in Your Mattress Layers?27 Mar
When you bought your last mattress, you probably did what most shoppers do: Walked into several mattress retailers, laid on a few beds and chose the one that felt most comfortable. But if it’s been several years since then, you may be wishing you would have done a little more research into the makeup of your bed. Is your bed starting to sag? Are you experiencing allergy symptoms? Are you waking up in a puddle of sweat? These are all things that you can be avoided by looking more clearly at mattress layers when you set out to purchase your next bed.
Why Each Mattress Layer Matters
The quality of a mattress build has everything to do with how comfortable it will be and how long it will last. These are the things you should be looking for at mattress retailers:
- A Supportive Core: If you’ve noticed yourself gradually sinking further into your bed and waking up with back pain, the mattress wasn’t made with a strong enough foam. Low-quality latex breaks down quickly, causing your spine to fall out of alignment. A mattress life expectancy will be much longer if it’s made with high-quality latex that doesn’t begin to sag after just a few years. In fact, the ideal foam mattress will have a layer of additional lumbar support.
- All Natural Materials: Some mattresses contain foams that aggravate allergies and asthma. If your mattress is not hypoallergenic, anti-microbial, dust mite, mold, and mildew resistant, you’ll find yourself itching and having a hard time breathing when lying in bed. The best way to guarantee an allergy-free sleeping experience is to look for a mattress made of CerfiPUR-US Certified Foams. These foams cover all of the criteria mentioned above and are also formaldehyde free, have no ozone depleters, and no CFC’s, contain no mercury or lead and have low emissions for better indoor quality.
- Cooling Qualities: Even the most cloud-like mattress can become uncomfortable if it causes you to sweat. Since many foams can retain a lot of body heat, you’ll want to look for a mattress with ventilated gel memory foam, and that has a breathable cover that won’t make you hot.
