Are latex or latex alternative mattresses really worth the money? Latex foam offers plenty in the way of enhanced comfort and support, but they may not be right for everyone. Consider these selling points of latex or latex alternative mattresses to determine if it’s the right choice for you.
Pain reduction and prevention have been noted by over 1/3 of the people who sleep on a latex mattress. Latex relieves pressure points and provides full-body support. Lower back pain has been reported as improved by many users. Latex is resilient; it provides “push-back” while it contours. This works to give the sleeper good sleeping posture and alignment.
Latex mattresses are available offering different comfort levels. You can buy soft, medium and firm mattress made of latex. You get both the support you want and a choice of the comfort level that you like best!
Latex is a lasting investment. You can expect your latex mattress to last anywhere from 2 to 7 years longer than ordinary mattresses.
This is a real win! Latex is harvested on plantations without killing the trees. They’re tapped much like maple syrup. A tree can provide latex for as long as 30 years while it works like all other plants to produce clean air.
When you’re ready to replace your latex mattress – years down the line – remember the latex is a natural product and biodegradable.
Again, this is a natural product and it’s naturally good for you. It’s fire resistant so no chemicals need to be added. It’s hypoallergenic. It is also antibacterial, anti-fungal and resistant to mold, mildew and dust mites. Could you ask for more?
You don’t get that chemical smell because fewer VOC products are used in the manufacturing process. This means cleaner air in your home!
Reduced Motion Transfer
If your old mattress wakes you up every time your partner moves, you’re going to really appreciate the motion isolation of a latex mattress. You will get a night’s rest that isn’t disturbed by your partner’s moving. Plus, remember that full-body support and “bounce” for a great night’s sleep and everything else you do in bed!
