What’s under the covers?
Part of your mattress education is understanding the different components of your sleep set. We all know what a mattress and a box spring are, but what’s really going on inside? And most important, how does what’s inside help you sleep? Once you know what goes into building a Serta mattress, you’ll be able to select the one that’s right for you.
What’s in a Serta Foam Mattress?
A: Comfort Layers
The feeling you get when you first lie down on a mattress comes from the foams and fibers used in the upholstery layers above the innerspring. Serta mattresses use special fibers complemented by responsive, body-conforming foams to ease pressure points along the body. These mattress comfort layers reduce tossing and turning, promoting a better night’s sleep.
Comfort choices vary by mattress collection. Many Serta mattresses offer a variety of comfort choices that allow you to choose your ideal sleeping surface, such as Firm, Euro Top, Pillow Top and Super Pillow Top mattresses.
B: Foam Support System
Foam comfort cores come in two kinds: latex foam and visco-elastic memory foam. Each type of foam is designed to be soft to the touch, yet firm under your body’s weight. Heavier areas receive additional cushioning with foam mattresses, serving to relieve the pressure points that can cause tossing and turning. Foam mattresses also reduce motion transfer on your sleep surface so that one partner doesn’t disturb the other’s sleep.
The mattress foundation is the “base” of the sleep set and works in unison with the mattress to provide proper support and durability. The foundation, or box spring, is designed to complement the performance of the mattress. Purchasing just the mattress or foundation alone does reduce the overall durability and longevity of your mattress set.
