Our Foam Mattress Guide
If you want to have a pretty productive day ahead, get enough sleep at night. Getting a 6 to 8-hour sleep can give you a few important benefits the next day, especially if you are sleeping on some good comfy memory foam. It can definitely help put you in a good mood without the aches and pains in your back.
Aside from the springs, a mattress is usually made of a conventional latex rubber, visco-elastic memory foam, polyurethane foam, or a combination of any of these materials. Placing it on top of a bed base is highly ideal than just directly placing it on the floor. Depending on the quality and the materials used on a mattress is how they come up with the price.
Compared to any other kinds of mattresses, the memory foam mattresses are considered the densest. This is because some chemicals are added during the process to add viscosity and density to the mattress. Though it is heavier, it absorbs body heat and molds to your body, which can give you more support, especially with people experiencing back problems. Some get firmer as the room gets cooler, a method some companies sometimes use like Archers bedsteads.
A few people complained about the mattress’ chemical-like smell especially if it is still new, according to random mattress reviews. It is a strong smell that they say is comparable to a paint stink. This sometimes leads to irritations and allergies to some people. But airing it outside may help to lessen the odor.
These mattresses are basically hypoallergenic. House dust mites and mildew will only have a very low chance of appearing, making it an ideal mattress for those asthmatics and sensitive to respiratory infections.
But you must not leave babies and small kids unattended in the mattress as they might get suffocated, making it difficult for them to turn around and move.
For a smaller family with the kids who are still sharing bed with the parents, a memory foam mattress queen is the answer. It measures 60 x 80 inches, big enough for two adults and a smaller child to squeeze in.
Depending on your personal preference, you may choose the softer or the firmer kind. This is an option that may want to decide first before getting a new one.
A king size memory foam mattress can fit a family with 2 more extra children. If the bedroom is large enough, some people prefer to use the biggest mattress size to have a bigger extra space to turn around. Mattresses this big should be supported by a larger frame, preferably with 5 or 6 legs.
It will take around 7-10 years for good foam mattresses to be replaced. You will definitely get your money’s worth, so make sure you choose the one with the vest quality.
To prevent mildew build-up inside the mattress, you should avoid soaking it. If it gets contact with water, you can either use a vacuum cleaner with a mild surface cleaner or just wipe it with a damp cloth.
For you to know if it already needs replacing, notice if there is obvious squeaking or sagging, or if you can feel the springs poking out.
