A clean sleeping place is the key to healthy sleep and aesthetic pleasure. Of course, we want the freshness to last as long as possible.
During the "life" of the mattress, both minor and major troubles can happen to it, which can significantly spoil our mood.
How to solve a problem?
This is an indicator of the bearing capacity of the mattress for one berth.
Exceeding the load indicator is strictly prohibited.
When choosing a mattress, take into account the weight of both sleepers and focus on the largest one. It is advisable to provide a margin of +5 (10) kg.
For couples with a large difference in weight, specially designed models with double bearing capacity of the half mattress. (2 ZONE) Models "FREGATE" and "FREGATE 2"
High load-bearing capacity, does not affect the Stiffness index.
The mattress should follow the line of your body. There should be no gaps between the lower back (waist). While lying on your back, stick your fist in. Is it easy? The mattress does not suit you - it is too hard.
Why not chase hardness? With age, our spine, if not kept in good shape, is easily deformed. If you lie on rigid bases, the spine, under the weight of the soft tissues of the body, will begin to align, which can lead to disease. Choose a model that is moderately rigid, but with elastic flooring. The soft-touch decks will allow you to relax, while the rigid base will provide support and load distribution.
Soft mattress - hammock effect. Forget it! Such mattresses no longer exist in nature. Perfect elastic materials necessarily have elastic components. Spring and springless mattresses do not bend for a long time, like a panzer mesh. The concept of "Soft" mattress has acquired a new association with comfort and coziness.
Each model has a stiffness indicator. We have chosen for ourselves from 1 to 5. When choosing a mattress, we recommend not to pursue excessive rigidity, unless you have a habit of sleeping on a hard one and nothing else. An overly firm mattress can cause discomfort in the elbows, knees and lower back.
Be careful if the mattress is marked as Hard 5. Trust your feelings.
When a baby appears in the family, the parents are seized with a desire to provide him with the best. Most parents buy a mattress with a crib, it is convenient and quick. But ... is it worth it to blindly believe the seller and what should you pay attention to when choosing a children's mattress:
The most important thing is the safety of your child.
Therefore, be interested in the availability of documents (conclusions) for literally all products that the baby will come into contact with.
Not every manufacturer of goods will be able to please with the presence of the necessary (provided by law) documents.
Is the mattress soft or hard?
With the fathers of boys, everything is easier - everything should be "sporty" and ... period.
But the princess mothers, overwhelmed with tenderness, want to lay their baby on a "soft cloud".
However, specialists - vertebrologists, recommend the most rigid bed, at least up to 7 years old.
Decorate the bed with beautiful linens and protective rugs.
What components should be preferred?
Coconut coir is the best base for children's mattresses. It is well ventilated and does not retain moisture. The price bites a little, but the coir is worth it.
Decks made of non-woven materials based on polyester fibers. They dry quickly, are easily ventilated and, which is important, are not expensive.
For reference, polyester fibers are used in all hygiene products for both children and adults. They are considered the safest and most hypoallergenic.
Not recommended for children under 1 year old:
Latex. Despite the excellent qualities of latex, it retains moisture and is difficult to dry.
The material is sensitive to high temperatures and sunlight.
It should also be borne in mind that natural latex flooring has a characteristic and very persistent odor. May wear off over the years. It is for this reason that it is rarely used in mattresses, especially in children's mattresses.
Synthetic latex is also sensitive to high temperatures and sunlight, but it is odorless and can have multiple zones of hardness, making it an indispensable and very expensive mattress mat for adults, but not for children.
Today, latex is considered the best material for completing mattresses.
If you like this mattress, get a moisture-repellent mattress topper at the same time.
Foam rubber (polyurethane foam, foam) - despite the fact that the material has strongly "evolved" since the 80s, it is natural, nevertheless, there is nothing in it.
The foam rubber production process is very complex and belongs to the products of chemical synthesis.
The material is less susceptible to temperatures, but it is also afraid of sunlight and slowly releases moisture.
All three types of materials described above, over time, are subject to the process of destruction (destruction).
At what age can you take a "growing mattress"?
It all depends on the capabilities and desires of the parents, but the "adult" mattress can be chosen from the age of one. Standard or custom size? Non-standard children's mattresses are expensive. If a young family is careful about capital, it is better to choose standard sizes.

Don't skimp on the lamella base.. The construction is made of chop-blunders of assembled beams, with a distance of more than 6-7 cm. spoil any mattress in a short time.
Disease 2. Crooked mattress. This ailment can be avoided by choosing the right size. The mattress should not be forcibly placed on the bed base, otherwise the deformation of the components is guaranteed.
Disease 3. "Book". Here is a little more and it seems that the mattress will fold in half. This is not a quality lamella. Excessive bending of the slats often spoils good mattresses, especially those based on the "Pocket Spring" block. Timely abandonment of such a lamella or a choice in favor of a flat perforated base can save the mattress from inevitable deformation. Such cases are not covered by the warranty.
This disease is especially encountered by people who prefer to sleep alone in the middle of the bed.
Sore 4. Singing mattress. As our experience shows, it’s not about the mattress. Examine the bed and slatted base carefully. Check all joints and fasteners. In 99.9% of cases, they are the ones who arrange the night rhapsody.
