Mattress sets are scientifically engineered sleep systems created from different components such as springs, air and foam, despite their simplistic exterior appearance. Every mattress requires a foundation or box spring that properly supports the mattress to ensure the comfort and durability of the mattress. Together a mattress and its foundation create a sleep set.

There are several different types of coils in a mattress that offer different types of support:
Every 5-7 years. Even if your mattress doesn’t show much wear and tear, your body, lifestyle and sleep needs have probably changed. A lot can change in a person’s life in 5-7 years and you may find that the mattress you currently have is no longer a good fit for you and your body’s needs.
Buying a mattress is an investment, just like buying a car, you should do your research first but it is all about personal preference and what is a right fit for you and your partner. Here are a few tips to keep in mind during the process:
Your doctor may have specific recommendations for your sleep surface.

Mattress encasements, including waterproof mattress pads, are the easiest way to protect the manufacturer’s warranty on your mattress. Should a problem arise with your mattress, it must be free of stains in order to qualify for a warranty exchange or repair. Aside from keeping your mattress free of stains, many mattress protectors have the ability to keep dust mites, bed bugs and other unwanted guests out of your new mattress and away from your skin.
The transition from a crib to a bed is a big step for children. Due to the danger of injury from a crib, it is encouraged to switch to an adult size bed as soon as a child begins to climb out of the crib, or once a child reaches 35 inches in height. Most children move from crib to bed between the ages of two and three years old.
Beginning July 1st, 2007 all mattresses manufactured must meet the new Federal Government Law on F.R. 1633, “Flammability Regulations.” This law requires that every mattress must have a label that states the mattress set meets the federal standard. This regulation requires that mattresses be significantly more resistant to an open flame than previously outlined in individual state rulings. All Mattress Depot USA mattresses meet these new flammability regulations, by the means of fire resistant fiber barriers, not with the use of hazardous chemicals. The new F.R. Law is designed in the case of a fire and will give homeowners an extra 20-30 minutes to escape their bedroom. It also provides firefighters more time to get into a home, thus preventing further damage. It is estimated this new law now in effect will save 270 lives each year, and prevent as many as 1,330 injuries.
Most of us have slept on a flat bed surface all of our lives. But the human spine and legs have curves that if not supported properly can cause tense muscles and pain while sleeping. An adjustable base can alleviate health problems such as sleep apnea, heartburn, acid reflux, snoring or Gastroesphageal reflux disease (GERD). You can relieve tired muscles by finding the perfect sleep position to help fall asleep quicker and stay asleep longer. You can also use it for ultimate comfort control as you read, watch TV, talk on the phone, use your computer or laptop, play video games allowing you to get the most out of your mattress.
Early mattresses contained a variety of natural materials including straw, feathers or horse hair. In the first half of the 20th century a typical mattress sold in North America had an innerspring coil and cotton batting or fiberfill. Modern mattresses usually contain either an innerspring coil or materials such as latex, visco-elastic (memory foam) or other flexible polyurethane foams. Other fill components include insulator pads over the coils that prevent the bed’s upholstery layers from cupping down into the innerspring, as well as polyester fiberfill in the bed’s top upholstery layers.
In North America, the typical mattresses sold today have a n innerspring coil. However, there is an increasing interest in all-foam mattresses such as latex and memory foam that continually gain a large portion of the mattress market. There are also a number of so-called hybrid mattresses, which include both an innerspring coil and high-end foams. Air mattresses also cornered their own niche market as well in recent years.
Congratulations! You brought home your new mattress! There may be a few things you notice but there is no need to be alarmed.
