What is CertiPUR-US®?

February 26, 2015


Memory foam is a popular product in many of today’s mattress and bedding products — and even with its exceptional support benefits, there are concerns about its manufacture and health effects.

This is where CertiPUR-US® comes in. This is a program that allows companies to show customers that their memory foam products meet specific environmental and health standards. By applying for certification, a company can display the CertiPUR-US® seal in photos of their products so that customers know that they’re purchasing from a company that cares about lessening the possible risks of memory foam.

Any company that wishes to display CertiPUR-US® certification makes their products without the following:

  • Ozone depleters
  • PBDE flame retardants
  • Mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
  • Formaldehyde
  • Phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission

Such products also have low Volatile Organic Compound emissions to maintain the quality of indoor air.

The guidelines are stringent, so any company that wishes to apply must be willing to meet extremely high standards in order to feature the CertiPUR-US® seal. Not only have these requirements been developed by leading environmentalists, chemists, research scientists, and industry leaders, but they’re also considered to be living documents — that is, they can be revised and interpreted according to new and relevant research and results. This allows CertiPUR-US® to remain current so that you, the consumer, can continue to trust their name and their standards.

US-Mattress carries numerous brands that boast CertiPUR-US® certification — including mattress companies Serta, Simmons, and Spring Air, as well as the furniture and linens brands Klaussner, Jackson Furniture, and Malouf.

American-Made Furniture

January 27, 2015

Serta Perfect Sleeper Smart Surface Tidmore Super Pillow Top Mattress

Buying furniture is a pretty big investment. You want to furnish your home with quality pieces, but you also know that long-lasting furniture is not going to come cheap. You also want to know that the company you’re buying from has a good reputation when it comes to materials, construction, and eco-friendly practices.

One of the best aspects of American-made furniture and mattresses is that the companies producing these products typically adhere to these standards. The phrase “Buy American” isn’t just about supporting the economy — although that’s still pretty good motivation, considering the jobs it creates and the money it puts into the market. It’s also about investing in a higher quality. Lots of foreign industries don’t have the same kind of material and construction standards as we do here in the USA, so even if it means spending a little more money, you’re almost guaranteed to get better performance and quality from an American product than an imported one.

At the same time, importing materials and products across the world uses up precious natural resources — plus, it adds a pretty hefty shipping cost to your bill. American companies using American resources are wasting less and spending less because they don’t have to transport materials as far. This, combined with higher manufacturing standards, helps reduce the carbon footprint of American furniture and mattress companies.

US-Mattress carries a wide variety of furniture, mattresses, and linens that have been manufactured in America. We value both the economy and the environment, so we strive to provide you with a good selection of products that are crafted in our great country.

What’s That Smell?

November 25, 2014

Serta iComfort Savant Everfeel Plush Mattress

So you’ve purchased a new mattress. You’ve made a good investment, you’re excited to sleep better — but wait.

What’s that smell?

Your mattress has a chemical or mildewy smell, and you’re not sure why. Yeah, it’s brand new, but the mattresses at the store didn’t smell like this. The mattress is experiencing off-gassing, which is what happens when you take a new mattress out of its packaging. Reliable mattress companies like Serta, Sealy, and Simmons manufacture their mattresses in factories, where the mattresses are vacuum-sealed within minutes of completion. They have very little time to air out, so when you unwrap your new mattress, it’s going to air out in your home.

This isn’t as much of a problem during the warmer months, when you have your windows open — but in the winter months, it can take up to several weeks for the chemical smell to dissipate. Memory foam mattresses especially are known for a strong off-gassing odor. However, don’t let this deter you. This is entirely natural for any and every new mattress, since it has been sealed almost immediately to make sure that it stays clean and undamaged.

The best thing to do is to wait it out. This may not seem like the most helpful advice, but if you spray anything on your mattress, you run the risk of ruining your warranty. There are some natural air deodorizers, such as white vinegar and cut onions, which you can place in bowls around your bedroom to help soak up the smell.

This “new mattress” smell is nothing to worry about. It may not be as nice as a “new car” smell, but remember — your old mattress had to air out, as did the one you tried out at the store. If you do want to contact someone about the typical length of time for off-gassing, the manufacturer is your best source.

The Serta Perfect Day iSeries Applause is #1 for Back and Side Sleepers!

February 18, 2014


Consumer Reports has recently named the Serta Perfect Day iSeries Applause the #1 mattress for back and side sleepers. The Applause is available in firm and plush comfort levels, so whether you prefer a soft overall feel, or something on the firmer side, the Applause can provide the perfect blend of comfort and support to ensure you experience many nights of deep, restful sleep.

In Consumer Reports lab tests, The iSeries Applause was rated on multiple criteria, such as the following:

Side Sleeping – Tests measured how well the Applause supports and maintains the horizontal alignment of the spine while lying on one’s side.

Back Sleeping – Tests measured how the iSeries Applause supports and maintains the natural curvature of the spine while lying on one’s back.

Durability – An analysis showed how well the Applause maintains its original shape, height, feel, and support after eight years of simulated use.

Strong Support and Soothing Comfort

The Serta Perfect Day iSeries Applause mattress uses a combination of premium comfort materials and an advanced innerspring system to give targeted support with soothing pressure relief. Support in the Applause is delivered through the Duet Coil System, which has an exclusive individually wrapped coil-in-coil design that provides better contouring and deep down support. As the outer coil gently cradles the body to soothe pressure points, the inner coil provides maximum support to the lower back. This coil system excels in blocking the transfer or motion between partners, so it’s an excellent choice for light sleepers and those who share a bed with a restless partner. The Serta iSeries Applause contains a number of premium comfort materials, but the most advanced is CoolAction Gel Memory Foam, which combines high quality memory foam with gel to retain less heat than traditional memory foam, provide enhanced pressure relief, and eliminate the need for a “break in” period. The Applause also comes equipped with the BestEdge Foam Encasement, which is a high density foam perimeter that ensures a uniform level of comfort and support across the entire sleep surface. This system allows sleepers to lie all the way to the edge without losing support and falling out of bed, and provides 15% more sleep space than mattresses without a foam encasement.

When you shop with US-Mattress, you can count on getting the web’s lowest prices on both the firm and plush Serta Perfect Day iSeries Applause mattresses. If you spend your nights sleeping on your back or your side, the Applause has the necessary comfort materials and support systems to ensure you enjoy nights of deep, restful sleep for years to come.
