Why do we specialize in Latex Mattresses?
Unfortunately most people don’t know anything about mattress construction. If they did the mattress industry would be turned upside down and the quality would go up and….. believe it or not, prices would go up even further. As it is, the quality of mattresses could be greatly improved however since most consumers don’t know what to look for, many mattress sellers take advantage.
Most people purchase a mattress based on what they learn from advertising. Ask the average person “what is the best mattress” and they will likely say “Tempurpedic”. That’s because they have heard the advertising and they know that they are expensive. Or they may say “Sleep Number”. (Which is 100% air and polyurethane at a big price).
Many people go out and pay top dollar for a mattress thinking that the more the pay, the better the mattress. (The more you pay does not have anything to do with mattress construction).
Some people decide to buy a mattress and go straight to Mattress Firm. Why? Because of all the advertising and because they have seen the highly visible stores every day as they drive by. Meanwhile, due to their high overhead, this South African owned company cannot compete when it comes to real comparisons.
Sam’s Club and Costco sell mattresses. Their prices are not bad but their quality is at best average. (As a mattress expert, I would not be happy with any of their mattresses).
So what is the best way to buy a mattress?
Decide if you like firm or soft. (The mattress has to provide good support) That is not an option. It should also be durable. Another thing to watch out for is the “heat factor”. As polyurethane gets denser, the more it traps your body heat. A few years ago they started adding “Gel” to the mix. It may help however it does not fix the problem.
Solution: Latex Mattresses (and don’t worry, these are not rubber gloves. There has never been a recorded case in 50 years where someone was allergic to a latex mattress.)
Latex Mattresses sleep cooler, feel better, last longer, offer more support, are natural and are bio-degradable.
Normally latex mattresses cost a lot more than oil based polyurethane (GEL, MEMORY FOAM, ETC.). That’s because latex comes from rubber trees in India or Brazil. (That’s why you don’t see many latex mattresses). Mattress manufacturers don’t want to spend the extra money importing latex. Why should they when they have consumers tricked into buying polyurethane instead?
Here is a great and short video demonstrating the durability of latex
