Latex Mattresses are Expensive.
If you look at it from an up front cost this is true however if you consider how much longer latex beds last compared to other mattress types especially mattress and box springs which typically only have 20-30 percent of the life, these quality mattresses will pay for themselves.
Natural Rubber Latex Mattresses Don’t Hold Up.
This statement could not be more false. Latex is a by product of the rubber tree. The natural sap is converted into a solid form and is extremely resilient. It may very well be one of the most durable mattresses on the market.
Latex Mattresses Smell bad.
First off every mattress has a smell whether it be a conventional spring mattresses, memory foam, waterbeds or yes even latex. This is similar to a new car or anything else that is brand new. This has really has been blown out of proportion yes some latex mattresses have a stronger odor than others like any mattress can. We recommend asking for a sample of the latex and take a sniff. Be sure to smell the latex mattress you are testing. Every mattress will need a short period of time to air out when first removed from its plastic bag.
Latex Mattresses are Good for a Bad Back.
We really do not get this statement at all. Like any good quality mattress it is designed to support your back properly. It is flexible enough to support your back yet resilient enough to stand the test of time. Before you take the lead in statement as gospel, know this we would suggest learning the background of the person who made the statement and determine their level of knowledge about mattresses. Many doctors and chiropractors know little more about mattresses than you know about back surgery.
