25 Aug Learning About Latex Mattresses
If you have been mattress shopping recently, you have probably heard about one of the latest trends in comfortable sleep, the latex mattress. If your only exposure to latex is through some of the more common uses—such as latex gloves—you may wonder just how comfortable this would be in your mattress. Here are the basics about what they are and why latex makes such a great material for mattresses.
What is a Latex Mattress?
Latex is a spongy material that can either come from natural or synthetic sources. This material is made primarily of rubber, and because of its ability to respond instantly to your body, it is often a favorite material for comfortable mattresses. In addition, it is an environmentally friendly material, which makes it a premium choice for the planet-conscious.
Why Choose Latex for Your Mattress?
The most common reason we choose any material for our mattress is that it is comfortable. While 2 Brothers Mattress in Utah provides a wide variety of options for a comfortable night’s sleep, latex is a popular choice for anyone looking for a great mattress.
People also choose latex mattresses because they are durable and long lasting. These beds will usually last longer than conventional innerspring mattresses, and may come with warranties that can stretch up to 20 years. Since experts recommend you replace more traditional innerspring mattresses every 5 to 10 years, this durability could add up to significant savings. If your latex mattress can last as much a four times a long as an innerspring, it will be a worthwhile investment.
Latex mattresses from Serta also have great health benefits. They are naturally resistant to dust mites and other potentially harmful allergens that can build up in your mattress over time and disrupt your ability to get a good night’s sleep. In addition, they are naturally resistant to moisture and the buildup of mold and mildew, and these anti-microbial properties can prolong the life of your mattress. Other beds that have hypoallergenic properties may be treated with chemicals and other industrial products, which can make them potentially harmful.
Finally, latex products have the ability to naturally regulate body temperature, with a light and airy material that allows air to circulate freely throughout the night. The result is a mattress that can help maintain a more constant body temperature without getting too cold or too hot.
If you have a latex allergy or reaction to the medical-grade latex that is used in products like surgical gloves, this type of bed from 2 Brothers Mattress in Utah is unlikely to cause the same reaction. It’s made from a more natural form of latex, and you can even purchase a latex bed that is made entirely of natural, organic materials (although the price will usually be higher than synthetic or blended beds) to avoid any potential allergies. A buffer like a non-latex mattress pad and hypoallergenic bedding can also help prevent a reaction.
