That Sinking Feeling: Common Problems with Memory Foam
Memory foam has become a popular mattress choice in today’s bedding market. However, as time goes on, many people are realizing the down-sides of this material, and the impact it can have on better sleep.
Sensitive to temperature change:
Memory foam responds to changes in temperature, so that your mattress feels too firm when your bedroom is cold, and too soft when the room is warm. With the superior quality of Ommage Sleep natural latex mattresses, you can expect a consistent and reliable sleep experience, every time.
Build up of heat:
As visco-elastic memory foam molds to the sleeper it traps heat around the body, and the structure of the dense foam means that it retains heat rather than circulating the air. Many people complain about feeling too hot, thus disrupting a peaceful nights sleep. In contrast, Ommage Sleep natural latex has an open-celled structure, which enhances ventilation and airflow which means a cooler sleep surface
Some people have reported that a new memory foam mattress gives off an unpleasant chemical smell. This is because traditional, mass-produced memory foam can contain many different chemicals, preservatives and chemical flame retardants. As well as a bad odor, these may also cause discomfort, reactions, or even respiratory issues for those who are sensitive to VOCs (Volatile Organic Compounds). At Ommage Sleep, we can guarantee that our natural latex mattresses are completely free from harmful chemicals that could irritate your throat or lungs, or cause discomfort for sensitive sleepers. Health sleep for healthy people.
