Why you should consider latex mattresses
What is a Latex Mattress?
Latex mattresses are made from natural latex sourced from rubber trees using methods like Dunlop or Talalay manufacturing process. A synthetic and latex hybrid mattress contains synthetic latex, poly-foams, and other materials.
Why should I consider latex mattresses?
There are several reasons why you should opt for latex mattresses. Latex is natural and feels comfortably soft at the first touch. As you make yourself comfortable in bed, it gives you full support due to the elasticity. It adapts to the body shape, providing proper alignment for your spine. Not only will you sleep comfortably, but you also wake up without back pain and the stress of dealing with discomfort throughout the day. Moreover, latex mattresses are naturally dust mite, bed bug, bacteria and mildew resistant. Perfect for someone with allergies to sleep peacefully. They are easy to maintain and can last you longer than a memory foam mattress. What more could you want?
Are latex mattresses safe?
Yes. There is no source of concern and they are actually considered safer than most because no harsh chemicals are used in the manufacturing process.
Can I get free delivery to my house?
Yes. We have a next day free delivery policy. We also go the extra mile to remove your old mattress for you.
What is the difference between latex and memory foam?
The difference is that latex is natural but memory foam is made from a synthetic material called polyurethane. Secondly, latex is elastic and naturally molds to the contours of your body to provide pressure relief, whereas memory foam uses heat from your body and provides less pressure relief. Latex has a higher bounce back rate, i.e it returns to its original shape much quicker than memory foam. This gives it a lighter feel and more bounce.
Do I need special sheets for a latex mattress?
No. Latex mattresses are made as per industry standards. They also allow for air circulation and are soft to the touch, so ordinary sheets can be used on them.
How durable is a latex mattress?
Organic and natural latex mattresses last approximately eight to ten years, and synthetic or latex hybrids last around six to eight years, while a traditional innerspring memory foam one lasts less than 6 years.
Are latex mattresses hard to maintain?
No. Dunlopillo, the pioneers of latex mattresses, created single-sided latex mattresses so you don't need to flip your mattress from time to time. Let’s not forget that it is resistant to mold and other extremities. This lifts the load of replacement and allows you to forget about sleeping on your couch.
Are latex mattresses Eco-friendly?
Yes. Since latex is sourced from mother nature herself, latex mattresses are much more Eco-friendly in comparison to memory foam mattresses or mattresses made from other synthetic fibers.
How long will it take to get used to my new latex mattress?
One second. Just rest your head, shut your eyes and enjoy the feeling of rest wash over you.
