Mattress quality guide
Choose the one that has the right size
Mattresses should fit the kind of bed size you have. It would be bad thing to see an oversized mattress over a small-size bed. Moreover, it is uncomfortable to sleep on a king-size bed with a single-size mattress.
A mattress that is comfortable to use
Comfort is relative among people. There are some people who prefer to have extremely firm mattresses, while there are others who are more comfortable with the soft ones. Mattress manufacturers nowadays are using the latest innovation in technology to provide its consumers the kind of mattresses they prefer.
Many testimonies on the qualities of mattresses revealed that choosing the right mattresses should also involve one that is good for the back, and do not cause back pains. According to some orthopedic doctors, a good mattress should give the back a good support in whatever position the person is at.
A mattress that is of good quality
Although brand names do not really pay a major role in choosing mattresses, it is still a little bit wiser to go for the ones that have already established a good name and credibility in producing mattresses. In this sense, it is somewhat more secured to choose brands that have huge names already than those names that are unrecognizable at all because huge companies are, indeed, more conscious about their reputations; thus, their quality control is likely stiffer.
Aside from the brands, however, there are other items to consider in checking the quality of mattresses.
- mattress padding: padding contribute to the thickness of mattresses. These layers of padding vary in its kind – memory foam, silk, latex, wool, etc. Inside the padding are natural materials such as fibers and foams that will contribute to its thickness.
- innerspring coil: the foundation of all mattresses are its innerspring coils. It is the most important factor in choosing mattresses because this will give support to your body while lying on your bed. Quality of coils can be seen on the thickness of wires or wire gauges it have as well as the number of coils used in the mattresses. One should also check the durability of innerspring coil.
A protector is necessary to maintain the “fresh look” and the longevity of your mattresses. A mattress protector is piece of cloth that covers the mattress to prevent sweat, stain, or other forms of dirt from sipping into the mattresses. This also prevents the person sleeping from being exposed to bed bugs, dust mites, and dirt particles that have clung to the mattress.
Just like any other product bought in a higher price, mattresses should also have warranties. This is to ensure the buyer that a bought defective mattress can be returned within in a given period.
