Whether you’re for or against a latex mattress as a sleeping solution, there’s a lot of misinformation about the product.  Choosing a mattress is probably like choosing sunglasses – it’s very subjective, and not all options will suit all people.  When you look at the facts, and disregard all of the non-science you hear from your friends and colleagues, however, you’ll understand that Latex mattresses are for many reasons, an excellent consideration.  “Should I buy a latex mattress?”, you might be asking.  Here’s some reasons why perhaps you should…latex mattress

Latex mattress are not hot, they are highly breathable, durable, anti-fungal & anti-bacterial.

Latex is NOT a HOT mattress!

Latex has an open cell structure which means there are literally millions of tiny interconnecting cells allowing air and moisture to pass through naturally.  They also have pin holes on the top and bottom surfaces, as well as ventillation holes around the sides of the mattress for extra ventilation.  These extra “air holes” allow for even more air flow during the movements we make throughout the night.

Some latex manufacturers may cover their mattresses with polyurethane foam which is not breathable and actually traps body heat.

Latex is dust mite free!

Tests carried out by the Morton Thiokoi Research and Development Institute in Massachusetts indicate that particular Latex products have an anti-fungal and bactericide action.  Latex provides no feeding ground for house dust mites.  It does not need any chemical treatment and is naturally anti-house dust mite and anti-bacteria.

Latex is extremely durable

One manufacturer of latex mattresses puts their products through a rabid testing process.  All of their mattresses are tested for hardness and height durability.  A 140kg load is rolled 60,000 cycles over the mattress to simulate a 10 year usage of the mattress.

The products perform much better than the international standards where the requirements are that the mattress should not exceed a 5% loss of height.  As a result of the testing, this particular brand guarantees that you will not experience sagging and it will maintain its qualities over time.

Latex can stay clean

To preserve the life of your latex, these mattress come with a removable and machine washable zip cover.

As much as we may not like to talk about it, many of us sweat during the night, some more so than others.  As such, you may be concerned about sweat being absorbed into your mattress.  The removable cover is an effective line of defence which does not hinder the ventilation of the mattress.

I’ve recently switched to using a Zenna latex mattress.  It was supplied to me by one of their sales representatives, Dave, who has been in the bedding industry for well over 30 years.  As a result, he has an extensive knowledge about latex products and how they compare to other mattress alternatives.  Refreshingly, Dave offers an honest and reliable service.  He states only the facts about the Zenna products and equips you with all the necessary information to make an informed purchase.  There is never a need to push for a sale on his part since the high quality Zenna products speak for themselves.

My experience so far using the Zenna latex mattress has been positive.  To be honest, given how much I tire myself throughout each day, I could probably sleep soundly on a highway.  I do prefer the sound of my bed though, and currently, the most noticeable difference has been the ‘quietness’ of the mattress.  Prior to using latex, we had a spring mattress.  Tossing and turning throughout the night, we could often hear each other because of the ‘twangs’ the springs would make.  On latex, that will never happen.  Importantly, I can vouch for the fact that latex is not hot.  My body seems to run pretty hot at night as it is.  Nonetheless, I haven’t woken up in sweats or found myself uncomfortably hot compared to our previous spring mattress.  Lastly, and perhaps most importantly, each morning so far, I’ve woken up feeling well rested and ready to start my day.

Choosing a mattress is a very personal and subjective process.  In deciding which product is best for you, be sure to seek out justifiable information about the mattresses you are considering.  Hopefully this short piece will help you to at least consider latex as an option.  For me, I’m really happy with my decision to switch to latex.
