Many people go from one store to the next tiredly searching for the perfect mattress to end their sleep struggles only to come out empty handed. While you may find synthetic latex mattresses or latex blends, you’ll rarely find mattresses in retail stores that are 100 percent natural latex mattresses.
The Cost Factor
One primary reason it’s so rare to find 100 percent natural latex mattresses in retail brick and mortar stores is that the costs of natural latex mattresses, after retail markups, are somewhat prohibitive to the average consumer. This is especially true when compared to the fact that these high quality, durable, long-lasting mattresses are often showcased side by side with mattresses that are designed to last no more than five to seven years.
Purchasing direct from the manufacturer, like PlushBeds, cuts out the middle man. Thus eliminating the costly markups that drive prices skyward and saving consumers 50 to 70 percent on the total cost of the mattress.
The Comfort Zone
Another primary reason that it’s so rare to find these mattresses in furniture showrooms and retail stores is that the top manufacturers, such as PlushBeds, make these mattresses to order. Your latex mattress is custom made — they’re constructed according to the sleep and comfort needs of individual customers.
Sometimes literally with one partner getting the mattress made for one desired comfort level and the other side of the mattress made to another. Retail stores cannot accurately predict the mattress firmness or softness needs of all their customers in order to get the right mattresses or right combinations stocked up and on hand.
Buying with Confidence
Some consumers remain wary of making purchases online. It’s important to know who you’re doing business with when making purchases via the World Wide Web. PlushBeds has an “A” rating with the Better Business Bureau, countless positive third-party reviews, and GreenGuard Gold and GOLS certifications.
GreenGuard Gold certification for latex mattresses is derived from the GreenGuard Children and Schools Certification because it adheres to strict criteria to certify products acceptable for vulnerable or highly sensitive individuals such as children and the elderly. In a mattress, this means that it’s considered a safe choice for use in hospitals and schools.
The GOLS Certification for Organic Latex is yet another symbol of excellence that stands for Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS). This standard does so much more than require only the use of organic raw materials. It also pays close attention to qualities involved in the manufacturing process including human health, safety, and welfare as well as the environment. This process pays attention so that you don’t have to lose sleep worrying about how the mattress was made or who may have been harmed in the making of your mattress.
You may not be able to try PlushBeds’ mattresses out in stores before bringing them home, but PlushBeds offers the 100 Night Free Comfort Exchange that allows you 100 nights to try the mattress out. This is in addition to the ability to exchange the comfort layer on your latex mattress. If during the first 100 nights you decide it’s not right for you, you can return the mattress for a full refund, minus a nominal $149 return transportation fee. There are no hidden restocking fees, meaning you can buy with confidence.
