Latex mattresses last longer than any other type of mattress on the market today. High end 100% natural latex mattresses last the longest. They can last up to 20 years. They surpass the expectations of the best memory foam, hybrid and coil mattresses by approximately five to ten years. 

How Can a Latex Mattress Last So Long?

At Latex for Less we offer a 20 year warranty on every mattress we make. We are confident in doing so because we know about the longevity of 100% natural latex mattresses. By ensuring that you can enjoy restful, comfortable, supportive sleep for 20 years, you can rest easy and buy with confidence.

This can only be said of 100% natural latex mattresses. Synthetic latex blends break down much faster than 100% natural latex that is pure. There are many reasons that contribute to this. The primary reason is that 100% natural latex is very resilient due to the fact that it has not been exposed to chemicals and other compounds that break down the materials over time.

At Latex for Less, we use the highest quality 100% natural ingredients at every step of the process. From the rubber trees tapped to produce the latex for our mattresses, to the natural manufacturing methods for our mattress. 

The fact that latex foam comes from the sap of rubber trees is also important for maintaining resilience for long periods of time. Rubber is resilient by nature. It holds its shape even after years of use, without developing indentations or losing support along the edges.

It’s also one of the reasons our mattresses are so comfortable. The latex foam in your mattress contours to and cradles your body while you sleep and it bounces back to its normal shape when you get out of bed. This creates a mattress designed for longevity.

Can You Extend the Life of Your Latex Mattress?

Yes! By taking care of your mattress you can extend its lifespan by five years or even longer. Here are some tips:

1. Make sure you have proper support for your latex mattress. Latex mattresses are heavier than traditional mattresses and a strong foundation is necessary. A strong solid foundation or a strong slatted foundation with slats that are less than 2.5" apart, will work nicely.

2. Clean your mattress regularly to keep it in good shape. 100% natural latex is naturally resistant to bacteria and other microbes, but an ounce of prevention, as they say, is worth a pound of cure. Sprinkle a bit of baking powder on your mattress cover and vaccuum it up to keep it fresh and clean. 

3. Avoid having drinks and snacks in your bed that might spill and damage the mattress. Also, don’t overlook the importance of a quality mattress protector to help prevent any accidents, spills, drops, etc. from damaging your mattress.

How Do You Know When You Need a New Mattress?

When you buy a quality 100% natural latex mattress like a Latex For Less Mattress, you can expect many years of comfortable sleep from your mattress. You’ll know you need a new mattress when you begin to wake up with a fair amount of stiffness, back pain, neck pain, and overall body aches or when you begin to notice other signs such as:

  • Sagging
  • Loss of support
  • Rips
  • Tears
  • Lumps
  • Bumps

The bottom line is that you need to replace your mattress once it stops offering the proper amount of support to help you get a good night’s sleep.

Latex For Less Mattresses last. It’s as simple as that and following these tips can help your mattress last even longer.
