Buying a Mattress? 3 Considerations.
If you’re like me, the only thing I really thought mattered with a mattress was price – and to a lesser degree comfort. Then I discovered Fawcett. It turns out there are a whole lot of other important factors to consider.
If you’re not comfortable, you can’t sleep. If you can’t sleep you get sick and die. No, really this isn’t dramatic!
There’s a mountain of research linking sleep deprivation with serious and fatal diseases. Read our 7 reasons to get more sleep. It’s not just about avoiding disease or an early death. Good stuff happens when you get more sleep!
But how do you ensure a mattress is comfortable? Firmness levels are important. Generally speaking larger, heavier people need a firmer sleep surface than a smaller lighter person.
However, back-sleepers in general need a firmer mattress than side-sleepers. Here’s where many mattress fail. What happens if you weigh 280lbs and your spouse weighs in at 95lbs? Who has to sacrifice?
In addition to customization from side to side, Fawcett also creates our products made-to-order. So you are able to customize materials, firmness – we are only limited by our imagination.
This may not seem important at first glance.
But think for a moment. We spent approximately 1/3 of our lives in bed. You’ve got that mattress about 2 inches away from your mouth and your skin is virtually pressed against the mattress material. Our skin is the largest organ in our body, and it’s able to absorb things that touch it.
So when you look at how much time we spending bed and that we are constantly pressed against the mattress, it makes perfect sense that you need a mattress that doesn’t emit toxic materials that you may inhale or absorb through your skin.
Natural materials do cost more. But your health and well being is worth it! Need justification? If you amortize a better quality, higher priced mattress over 10 years, the difference is negligible.
That said, we also have incredibly well priced products. Why? We manufacture our products and offer them direct to the consumer. So our clients are purchasing factory-direct.
What happens if your mattress fails? What happens if your it is too firm? Too soft?
All our competitors offer warranties, but when you read the fine print, most of them are next to impossible to actually make a claim.
At Fawcett, we tried to create a transparent warranty, that was simple and easy to understand. Check it out here. Most mattress manufacturers do not have any ability to “edit” your mattress after you’ve bought it and slept on it. (there’s a small fee
However, at Fawcett, this is one of the things that makes us unique. If your mattress turns out to be too firm or too soft after you’ve slept on it for a few weeks, you can have it edited, or changed, by our team of craftsmen. They can replace the foam component with softer or firmer foam, all for a small fee just to cover our costs.
Getting a new mattress is great. But it isn’t a cure-all for everything. There are many reasons why people can’t sleep. Here are a few key issues to avoid if possible.
