How Long Does a Latex Mattress Last?
Many people want to know the answer to the question, “How long does a latex mattress last?” because they have gone through many mattresses, and would like to finally settle down with one. That almost sounds like dating vs. courting or marriage, but truthfully it can be quite discouraging to continue to buy mattresses that don’t hold up for very long, that sag prematurely, or that just don’t provide the promised level of comfort for any lasting period of time. People are seeking not only answers to the questions “When should I buy a new mattress?” and “How much does a latex mattress cost?”, but additionally once they have determined that their jig is up with trying one mattress after another, how long can they expect their latex mattress to last before having to start the process over again and get a new one?
Well, there really is hope and promise with a latex mattress; so much so in fact, that the best latex mattress offerings come guaranteed to last up to 20 years and sometimes more. The most reputable manufacturers of natural latex mattresses will provide a warranty of 20 years. And think about it, that is quite a promise and guarantee! Barring any abuse or strange misuse, a mattress really should last that long when it is made out of natural materials. One of the best substantiating reasons why latex foam mattresses can last that long is because the foam rubber core within them is extremely elastic, resilient, and durable. Other foam or pillow top mattresses give out, cave in, sag, or bottom out in shorter periods of time because they are not made to repeatedly absorb the weight of a person and spring back. Latex mattresses form to the contours of a person’s body while he or she is lying on one, and then when arising, the material quickly regains the original shape prior to the pressure being applied to it.
Why would a manufacturer of any product put a full 20 years warranty on it? That’s taking quite a big risk to have to replace or repair something that far out if something goes wrong. Not all latex mattresses do have that kind of warranty on them; however, that is the kind of mattress that Plushbeds.com sells. Realize that when other companies claim that they have only 100% latex mattresses, that that doesn’t mean they use natural latex. Any synthetic latex mattress or blended latex mattress (part real latex and part synthetic latex) can lawfully claim to be that 100 percent latex mattress, but it doesn’t mean that it is all natural by any means, and check the warranty to see how long it is expected to last! Because in most cases only 100% all natural latex mattresses carry the lengthy warranty of the industry-best 20 years. And in truth, the latex mattresses that Plushbeds sells can go beyond the 20 years (maybe 30 or so) – that’s how long a latex mattress can last!
