Shopping For A Memory Foam Mattress November 17, 2017

If you find yourself shopping for a memory foam mattress and are not sure which one to purchase, then you will want to read this article.  With traditional innerspring mattresses, shopping for a mattress was pretty simple, since all you really had to do is compare the number of springs and type of top quilting.  However, when purchasing a memory foam mattress there are a lot more things to consider. For example, if you purchase a cheap memory foam mattress, it may have a foul odor for several days.  The odor is due to off-gassing or the leaching out of petroleum or other chemicals from the memory foam.  Higher quality memory foam mattresses are made from plant-based materials, that do not produce off-gassing, so they do not have any odors or smell when you take them out of the box.

The other common question consumers have is what height of memory foam mattress should they purchase?  The first thing you want to do is measure your bed frame and box spring if you intend to use one and then measure 10 inches and 16 inches up.  Most individuals end up purchasing memory foam mattresses that are between 10 to 16 inches thick and have several layers of different types of foam.  But you always want to measure before you make a mattress purchase so that you get a good sense of the overall height of your new mattress once you have it on your bed.  The other thing you should consider is where your mattress is made, while there is nothing inherently bad with Chinese memory foam mattresses.  There have been suppliers that have mislabeled products and not been honest and upfront with consumers.  If you purchase a USA made product, you at least have some outlets such as the BBB to complain to, should you find that your mattress is not quite what you purchased.
