When considering the benefits of a foam sleep surface, many consumers ask us, “Is a foam mattress hot?”  To answer that question we first need to look at the different types of foam on the market.

A type that is gaining in popularity is latex foam.  Used for over a century as a sleeping surface, it has enjoyed a comeback over the last decade.  Many people love sleeping on a latex mattress.  It provides relatively firm support that gives sleepers a feeling of sleeping “on, not in” it.

On the other hand, memory foam, originally developed by NASA in the 1960s for astronaut use, is best known for the way it reacts to the sleeper’s body shape, literally molding itself to the curves and contours of his or her body.  Many people find that sleeping on memory foam relieves back and neck pain, helps them to sleep deeper, and wake more refreshed.

When shopping for either a latex or memory foam mattress, it’s important to make sure that the one you choose is made from quality materials.  Inferior ones use cheap foam that was made with harsh chemicals or has excessively large amounts of air pumped into it.  These products frequently cause allergic reactions in those who use them, due to the dangerous compounds used in their manufacture.  Also they break down quickly, causing the mattress to lose its support in as little as a few months of use.

Parklane Mattresses only sells mattresses made of superior grade components.  For example, our memory foam products are fashioned from “cool sleep” foam, which is 8 times cooler than our competitor’s offerings.  Our latex items are similarly crafted from top-grade materials.  Either choice will give you years of comfortable, supportive rest, without the sweaty, heat generating effects of inferior sleep surfaces.  Browse our site and feel free to ask as many questions as you like about our fine products.  We’ll be glad to give you the honest, in-depth answers you need to make the right choice.
