01 May Best Practices for Online Mattress Shopping, Part 2
In part one of this two-part blog series, we went over some of the best practices involved in purchasing a mattress online. Online shopping has long been a vital area of consumer society, but has been thrust into even larger of a limelight in recent months based on closures, social distancing and quarantine methods being taken by many around the globe.
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re proud to offer a wide array of new mattresses, adjustable beds and numerous other accessories online. From memory foam to innerspring, latex and numerous other mattress materials, we have you covered with every product you might require. In today’s part two, we’ll go over several additional factors that you should closely consider when purchasing a mattress online.
Density and Maintenance Factors
There are several different materials that may be used for your mattress, and the density involved here is an important factor. Mattresses with high-density foams, such as memory foam, tend to last longer and be reviewed extremely well by customers. There are numerous other materials, however, including latex, traditional foam or various cover formats. As you move down the scale in density, the mattress tends to be of lower quality and may not last as long.
In addition, it’s important to think about basic maintenance needs for any mattress you’re considering. Prioritize features like removable, washable covers and accessories, plus the ability to clean the actual mattress foam itself. Be wary of mattress covers with zippers (most do not have them), as this may introduce issues with machine-washing or other maintenance areas.
Another major factor to consider here is the thermal comfort, which refers to how a mattress will impact your body’s temperature while sleeping. You’re looking for a mattress that will not build up too much heat from your body while you sleep, with airflow and moisture-wicking serving as the two most important qualities you need in a mattress to ensure this will not happen. The body sleeps best at temperatures between 60 and 67 degrees Fahrenheit, and high-quality materials that provide airflow and remove moisture help maintain these temperatures.
Return or Exchange Policy
Finally, check with any online company you’re considering for a mattress purchase to find out about the return or exchange policy that’s in place (the latter is more common). At 2 Brothers Mattress, for instance, we offer a 100-night guarantee – we’ll let you exchange any mattress you buy from us within this period after you’ve had time to determine whether it’s right for you, plus will refund you up to $500 if you select a mattress with a lower value as your replacement.
