5 Myths about Organic Natural Rubber Mattresses

Posted by TheOrganicMattressStore on December 17th, 2014

Organic natural rubber mattress—this term itself attracts a long list of questions from probing consumers who only want the best for their family, especially with terms being used interchangeably by vendors and manufacturers, including those who claim their products to be organic, even when they don't follow the required standards. With so many manufacturers and retailers touting their products as "natural," "organic," and "chemical-free," it can be hard to tell which products are 100% safe for your family. Because definitions vary, it is much simpler to just tell you what organic rubber mattresses are not. Here are some myths about natural rubber mattresses you should know about:

•    Latex mattresses are expensive – Many people are put-off by the expensive upfront price of organic mattresses. However, if you would compute the years of use you can get out of a single, quality organic mattress and compare it with the number of replacements you do with your traditional mattress, chances are they would only break even. What's great about investing in a more expensive organic mattress is you get more use out of what you bought while avoiding the health problems that are associated with (chemically soaked) synthetic mattresses.

•    Natural rubber latex mattresses don't hold up – Rubber latex mattresses are made out of the same basic material as rubber tires, rubber bands, and rubber balls—this alone will tell you just how durable latex rubber can be. Rubber mattresses, are for a fact, the most durable you can find on the market. The only thing is natural rubber mattresses do not contain all the chemicals that the same rubber that goes into the tires. Our natural rubber mattresses are 98% pure.

•    Rubber beds are too firm – Just because they are made of rubber doesn't mean they are firm. Organic rubber mattresses come in a variety of firmness levels to fit your comfort and provide the support you need.

•    Rubber smells bad – Truthfully, anything manufacture acquires a certain odor, especially processed rubber. This is due to the long process (that often includes chemical treatments) that these products have to go through. Organic rubber mattresses, on the other hand are free from the usual "new car smell" most new mattresses have, eliminating the need for you to air out the toxic smell before you can use your bed. You might smell rubber after opening the boxes the mattress comes in for a few day, but after that it goes away.

•    Rubber mattresses are bad for the back – This myth may have stemmed from the notion that rubber mattresses are too firm. Good quality organic rubber mattresses come in designs and firmness levels that help support the back correctly and in a way that many mattresses cannot. Medium Firm is the most popular level of firmness sold today.
