What You Need To Know When Looking At Latex Mattresses

If you are looking for a new latex mattress and are not sure which one you should purchase, then you want to pay attention, as well will be going in-depth on how to properly select a latex mattress.  When it comes to purchasing a latex mattress there are really only two types, either 100% natural latex mattresses and the rest.  If you are looking for the best quality mattress that you can get, you most definitely want to go with a 100% natural latex mattress.

You may be wondering what exactly is a natural latex mattress?  What it boils down to, is the entire mattress is made from natural latex rubber that is harvested from a tree, much in the same way that maple syrup is harvested from maple trees.  Once the rubber is extracted from the tree, it's then pressed into a giant mold, resulting in a single mattress piece.  The other type of latex mattress is a hybrid mattress that has a thick layer of dense memory foam and then a thin layer of latex on the top.  The end result with hybrid latex mattresses is that you are not getting quite as good support and bounciness, as you would have if you purchased a 100% natural latex mattress.
