All You Need to Know About Latex Mattresses

To many people, the build or the material of their mattress is inconsequential, as long as they get restful sleep at night. However, if you are someone who wants to inculcate an eco-friendly lifestyle as much as possible and wish to give an eco-friendly touch to your mattress, without giving up on comfort, then latex mattresses are your go-to. Latex adapts to the contours of your body naturally and bounces back quickly. This mattress is also well suited for people experiencing back pain. Among other benefits, it also keeps your body cool while you are asleep, thereby helping you sleep better.

Types of Natural Latex

Based on how the sap from the rubber tree is processed, there are two types of latex-

Talalay: This is the contemporary form of latex production, with a large section of today’s latex employing this form of fabrication. Talalay latex uses a more advanced processing method as the foam is first poured into a vacuum-sealed space to make it more uniform and compact. Then it is frozen and baked, which is referred to as “flash-freezing” that ensures the mattresses are lightweight and soft.

Dunlop is the more traditional form of latex production that is performed in three stages- stirring, moulding, and baking. Due to the rudimentary form of processing, the deposits settle down at the bottom, leading to a heavy, rough, and needlessly heavy mattress.

What Are the Benefits of a Latex Mattress?

Latex foam offers a lot in the form of comfort and health benefits. Read on to know more:

  1. Ideal for people with varied sleep styles:
    Latex mattresses are available in different levels of firmness such as soft, medium, or firm. Differing firmness levels let you select the sleep surface that is ideal for your sleep style.
    suited for all sleeping positions
  2. Provides motion isolation:
    If you sleep with someone who tosses and turns constantly, then a latex mattress will make sure your sleep is not disrupted.
  3. Hypoallergenic:
    Latex is naturally hypoallergenic and anti-microbial and is resistant to dust and mites. Latex mattresses do not trigger an allergic reaction, therefore, they are ideal for people with allergies and young kids.
  4. Offers sound sleep:
    Some mattresses hold on to body heat, leading to an unpleasantly heated sleep space. This problem can be overcome with latex mattresses that come with an open-cell structure, encouraging free airflow that offers a cooler and more relaxed sleep.
  5. Long lifespan:
    A latex mattress often lasts for about a decade depending on the kind of latex mattress. This is superior to the lifespan of any other mattress that typically lasts for 8 years. The all-natural latex mattresses have a longer lifespan than synthetic mattresses.
