The Benefits of Natural Latex

Like many naturally produced bedding materials, natural latex is quickly becoming a popular and healthier alternative to conventional mattresses and bedding materials. One of the major draw-back of natural latex mattresses is the fact that they are hard to research, let alone find while shopping for mattresses. Not only is WR Mattress one of the only places in the White Rock and Surrey area that offers a selection of naturally produced latex mattresses, our experienced staff will be able to answer any and all questions you may have about this emerging product. In the meantime, here are a few key reasons why it might be a good idea to consider purchasing a latex mattress.


The average natural latex mattress can last nearly three times longer than a conventional spring or memory foam mattress. The rubber material won’t break down, lose its shape, start to smell or feel unclean, and it won’t lose its firmness over time. Unlike synthetic materials, latex maintains airflow, making it resistant to the buildup of moisture, which can damage a mattress over time. While your average synthetic mattress usually costs less than an organic latex mattress, the lifespan of the natural latex mattress makes it well worth the cost.


A latex mattress is able to provide constant support that reacts to all the contours of your body, giving you a restful sleep that won’t put strain on your muscles causing you to wake up in the morning feeling sore. As stated before, the latex material is durable enough to stay firm for long periods, but should you prefer a softer feel in your latex mattress beds are customizable and can be made as soft or firm as desired. If you sleep with a partner on a larger mattress, it is also possible to have different levels of firmness on either side of the bed. Latex is breathable, so heat won’t build up in the mattress as you sleep. Nor will motion cause the mattress to move and disturb you or your partner while you sleep.


One of the major reasons natural latex beds are starting to grow in popularity is the increase in overall environmental awareness among today’s consumer. Latex mattresses that are 100% organically produced are made from the sap of a rubber tree. These trees usually produce sap for about 30 years before they die, and most organic farmers will immediately replant the land after their trees have been harvested. This natural process ensures a chemical-free, hypoallergenic product that lasts longer than a conventional mattress.
