Considering the seven to nine hours you spend sleeping each night, you get over 2,500 hours spent on a bed throughout the course of a year. This alone, is enough reason for you to think about the surface you are sleeping on. The quality of sleep you get also dictates the quality of your mental, physical, and emotional performance, which only adds to the reasons why a lot of people seem to be obsessing about natural and organic mattresses.
With the different kinds of organic natural mattresses available in the market, it can truly be a challenge to select the best type that will bring you and your family the best benefits. Chucking out your old, box spring mattresses and replacing them with organic beddings might be the best decision you can make for your family. By using organic mattresses, you eliminate possible exposure to radiation from the metal coil springs that interact with the earth’s magnetic field. Prolonged and constant exposure to this kind of radiation can negatively affect health. Additionally, your old mattress might be a thriving incubator for mold, mildew, and dust mites—reason why traditional spring mattresses double in weight after years of use.
Even mattresses that are labeled natural may still carry harmful toxins due to different treatments and processes they go through before hitting your local stores. If you ever wondered about the strong chemical smells that new mattresses give off, the fire-retardants and other toxic chemicals used on them are to blame. Even airing out a new mattress for days at a time still won’t get rid of the toxic smell completely. Watch out for misleading claims by conventional mattress retailers and manufacturers.
Organic mattresses eliminate all these disadvantages, which is why they are the best choice of bedding to have in your home, especially when you have young kids who are more prone to developing conditions from exposure to ordinary conventional mattresses. The following are things that you should look for when purchasing an organic mattress:
- Organic materials that don’t collect dust mites or support mold growth are among the most important things you should look for in a mattress. Choose truly organic products that follow the strictest standards.
- Durability is also an important factor to consider, especially since organic mattresses cost a lot more than traditional ones. Make sure you buy from manufacturers and brands that are known for their quality and durability, or you’ll be wasting a good deal of your money on sub-par beddings.
- Choose mattresses that have been certified by a trusted organization to make sure they follow approved standards.
