Is your mattress making you Sick?
About 97% of traditional mattresses made today are made with petroleum based foams. These Polyurethane foams are made with 100% chemicals which emit chemical odors (off gassing) into your home which contriubute to unhealthy indoor air quality. Memory foam has open cell technology which means every time you lay on your memory foam mattress the pressure of your body closes the cells sending chemicals into the air, when you rise from the mattress the cells absorb the air around it to fill the cells structure agian. A better way to think of it is to think of a balloon filling up and deflating.
Some memory foams include a strong chemical odors. Most memory foams include known carcinogen chemicals like benzene, napthalene and formaldyhyde. Memory foam is memory foam, some mattress manufactures mask the chemical smells or green wash their mattresses by adding soy, botanicals, or green tea or even mixing their chemicals with a certified latex. Don't be fooled by the greenwashing.
