Benefits of a Latex Foam Mattress
A Latex foam mattress provides buoyant support through its rubber construction for a gentle cushion. This is ideal for people with back pain and joint pain. When you lay down on a Latex mattress, it cradles around your body, such as your hips and shoulders if you are sleeping on your side. This provides excellent relief of pressure points in your joints and back and promotes proper spinal alignment in your back and neck.
Latex foam has an open-cell structure that allows constant air to flow through the foam. Additionally, Latex foam is constructed with pincore holes that further enhance the breathability of the foam. This provides a cool sleep experience when lying down on a Latex foam mattress.
Latex foams rubber construction also makes for a very durable mattress solution for long-term comfort. Latex foam can last between a decade to two decades, much longer than most other foam types. Other foam types break down as they age and become softer. Latex foam does not become softer as it ages but rather its rubber construction hardens. As such, those that prefer a firmer mattress might see even more use out of their Latex foam mattress. Regardless, Latex foam will easily maintain its bouncy feel for many years.
Normally, if a mattress is not cleaned, microorganisms such as bacteria can collect in the mattress and overtime will lead to mold, mildew, and dust mites. This will lead to allergic reactions when trying to sleep at night and an unsafe environment in general. Latex foam is naturally antimicrobial due to its rubber construction. This means that it does not allow the penetration and collection of harmful microorganisms into the foam mattress. As such, Latex foam is an excellent mattress choice for those with allergies or simply looking for a low maintenance mattress solution.
