With the surge to purchase memory foam mattresses and memory foam products, we are seeing inexpensive mattresses coming from Asia. China by far exports the majority of these mattresses. The fact is each mattress made in China has been compressed for months, and no one is sure what effect it will have on the life of the mattress. Another fact to consider is many Asian companies use toxic chemicals to manufacture their mattresses and this can make you sick. Don't be fooled with low prices, you really get what you pay for. Look for the "Made in the USA logo and be assured you are getting a high quality memory foam mattress, pillow, or mattress topper. Memory Foam Mattresses purchased from China are sold in lots from importers who not only purchase mattresses, but electronics, clothing, etc. Most of those E-Commerce businesses offer a 20-year full replacement warrantee. Who handles the warrantee? The importer? A company in China?
Unfortunately, not all foam is created equal. Many companies will put together the mattress in the U.S., but buy the foam overseas to save money. With overseas foam, we cannot be sure of the quality or the composition. The overseas foam makers produce memory foam that seems to flatten out with compression, even though it may feel comfortable upon the first feel. Therefore, the memory foam made overseas may not last as long, be as safe to sleep on, and offer enough support. Unfortunately, many companies state their beds are made in the U.S. because the mattress is put together in the U.S., even though they do not use U.S. produced foam.
Protect yourself, your family and your wallet; make sure if you purchase a memory foam product, it's made in the USA. There are several good online companies selling Made in the USA memory foam products. They sell quality, which is so important in any mattress. Discounts are out there, and you need to do some research to find out which online retails has a lower profit margin.
