The purpose of a mattress is to give your body proper support while you
sleep. This is especially important for your back; if a mattress fails
to give the right support in that area, it can cause discomfort and stress
that will impact your body's mobility. If your mattress is more than
seven years old, it may be time for a new one. Thankfully, there are plenty
of options to choose from when you go to any
mattress store serving San Dimas. The following list will help you evaluate some of the options so you
can make a more informed choice when you buy your next mattress.
The springiest option, innerspring mattresses are made with steel coil
systems, which can vary in terms of spring shape, gauge, and coil count;
it all depends on the manufacturer. Innersprings are covered with padding
foam; some even have added spring layers. Generally, more coils equals
greater spine support.
A Foam mattress uses multiple foam— latex, memory, polyurethane—in
lieu of springs. To suit a variety of comfort levels, the foams vary between
mattresses in terms of shape and density. Mattresses that contain memory
foam, alternatively known as visco elastic, bend precisely to the shape
of the body. These are a good choice for people with super-sensitive backs.
Latex mattresses contain plant or petroleum latex foam in the upholstery,
the support system, or both.
Another option, the hybrid mattress combines steel coils with one of several
types of foam: latex, polyurethane, or visco elastic. Pillow top mattresses
are topped with an extra layer of upholstery, which usually consists of
various fibers and foams. Not as common as the other types, gel mattresses
have been designed for added levels of comfort and warmth; these mattresses
include gel in either the upholstery or support system.
