With all the different types of organic mattresses out in the market today, bed shopping is a lot more confusing than ever. However, you can streamline the process by getting informed about basic, but important things that you should know when selecting a good mattress, from the materials that are best for your health to how much a good organic mattress costs, and where you can best find them.
There are three main types of mattresses, including innerspring mattresses (traditional mattresses most people are used to, consisting of metal coils inside), foam (can be either synthetic or made out of natural latex), and stuffed mattresses (such as cotton futons). Between these types of mattresses are many other variations, which is why you should determine the type of mattress that you want before even going from store to store so that you won’t get too confused with your choices.
Because synthetic fibers are flammable, the US federal government requires that chemical fire retardants should be added to these products, thus exposing you and your family to all kinds of toxic and harmful chemicals like PBDEs. Today, however, these are being phased out of production in more places, but it is best that you check to make sure that the mattress you are buying isn’t doused in these chemicals. To be on the safe and sure side, go for organic mattresses that rely solely on naturally flame resistant organic products and materials like wool. These are products that require no chemical additives
Your sleep time isn’t only for rest. It is also the period when your body repairs and heals itself from your daily stresses. This is exactly why you should be mindful of your sleeping environment and invest in products that will help make sure that you are sleeping healthy. Finding a reliable and trustworthy organic mattress store is also critical so you can be certain that what you are buying is the real thing.
Choose a store that is all about service and quality. The best companies do not pass off any synthetic blends as organic blends just to cut costs in production. Choose suppliers that adhere to updated organic standards. To date, USDA/National Organic Program’s organic standards are among the strictest, ensuring that the items consumers are purchasing are certified organic and of the highest quality from the field to the finished product. Look for a company with the finest selection of products that can help you achieve the best sleep to promote health.
