Research suggests that sleeping on a medium-firm mattress, especially one with adjustable firmness, promotes comfort, proper spinal alignment, and quality sleep. If body aches and pain are a concern for you, research also suggests that the surface you sleep on makes a difference in your comfort. Although individual sleep needs vary, the American Academy of Sleep Medicine recommends that adults get 7 or more hours of nightly sleep for optimal health, productivity, and daytime alertness.”
Tempur-Pedic’s classic hybrid mattress is the Tempur-Adapt Hybrid. The mattress measures 11 inches tall and is made with three layers that give this bed a medium level of firmness. The uppermost layer is a cushiony comfort layer that gives this mattress a feel of hugging the sleeper. The center layer is Tempur Material, its proprietary foam which is designed to soften from body heat to create individualized pressure relief that shifts throughout the night as you change positions.
The two layers of foam above the coils lend themselves to the motion isolation of the hybrid mattress. Typically, all-foam mattresses do the best job at motion isolation, but the Tempur-Pedic Tempur-Adapt Hybrid could be a good choice for couples or co-sleepers. As far as hybrids go, this mattress does a decent job of motion isolation for those who wake easily from a partner’s movements.
Mattress experts say those with back pain might benefit from the unique feel of this mattress, which combines contouring memory foam with medium support from the coils. Side sleepers might also find the support of this medium firmness mattress to be a good fit.
How To Spot A Fake Tempurpedic Mattress
Tempur-Pedic mattresses are high-end mattresses which cost around $2,199 and comes with a 10-year warranty that comes from a leading mattress company that’s been around for over 25 years. For the most part, the TempurPedic warranty is pretty straightforward and normal. It essentially covers any manufacturing defects for a 10 year period. For example, the warranty covers indentations (sagging) more than 0.75″, cracks and splits in the foam and defects related to the zipper. The warranty does not cover physical abuse such as burns, cuts, liquid stains or damage stemming from the use of improper bed frames. We recommend you check out all the details related to the warranty on the company’s official website.
The company also recommends you keep proof of purchase documents in a safe place. That way, you won’t run into any issues in the event you want to make a claim.
4 Keys to Avoid Mattress Fraud
According to comfort beyond, when there is good money to be made, scammers abound. The mattress industry is no different. There are 4 things you can do to avoid being a victim of fake mattresses:
- Read the tags. We have all seen the “Do Not Remove…” tags. Make sure it is sewn within the seam. The tag should identify the materials, their condition of manufacture (new), who manufactured it, and who is selling the mattress.
- Get a guarantee. What recourse can you take with the seller should there be a problem with your mattress? If the seller does not operate from a brick and mortar location, how can any issue be resolved? Do they provide free pickup should you wish to exchange or refund the product?
- Ask smart questions. Have the seller describe the construction of the mattress. How many layers are there? What comprises each layer?
- Fact-check what the seller tells you. Whether you Google, Bing, or Yahoo Search, investigate the manufacturer and model. Double-check the contact details. Make a test call if you feel you have to. Do not feel bad to cross-check this information in the presence of the seller. You are only protecting yourself. If the seller and the product are legit, there’s no reason for the seller to object to these actions. Closing sales is what matters to them. Product information should be available which should also match what you see.
How To Care For Your TempurPedic Mattress
Like anything, a big factor that contributes to the lifetime of your TempurPedic mattress is how well you take care of it. Luckily, TempurPedic claims most of their beds come with a removable and machine washable cover. If you’re not sure about the cover on your specific TempurPedic, look at its care instructions or contact customer service.
TempurPedic’s covers should be washed in cold water and dried in a cool setting, or better yet, air dried. If you spill liquid on your actual mattress, you should act quickly. The memory foam material isn’t made to hold up against liquid. So remove and wash the cover, and start dabbing the saturated area of your mattress with towels. Press down and try to get as much of the spill from your mattress as you can. Once you’re confident the liquid is completely gone, air dry the mattress. TempurPedic suggests you use a fan if you want to speed up the process, like if the spill happens right as you were going to get in bed. SEE: How To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs
