The Cons Of Cheap Memory Foam Mattresses
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Memory foam mattresses have become a very popular choice for consumers. Memory foam offers support, comfort and a great night's sleep with little/no disturbance to one's partner. With the growing popular of memory foam, there has been an influx in cheap memory foam mattresses. Despite their allure of a cheap price, cheap memory foam can be a huge let down and can come with serious negative qualities. This article discusses some of these.

Toxic Chemicals - Making a mattress super cheap and one made from memory foam, can often result in manufacturers using toxic chemicals to do so. The chemicals that can be used to make a cheap foam mattress can irritate your lungs and affect your breathing. If you buy a cheap mattress this can be devastating if you start to have problems with your health. It can be even worse if you already suffer from respiratory issues such as asthma, because it can make it worse.

The toxic chemicals can also disturb your sleep, defeating the point of buying a memory foam mattress and skin problems can also arise from the cheap chemicals used.

Of course, also, it is worth noting, that using such chemicals is also not environmentally-friendly.

Flattened Mattresses - If you buy a cheap mattress, you may get some good use out of it but it won't be long before it starts to flatten and sink in. Cheaper memory foam mattress are made from very low density visco-elastic foam. Low density foam has bigger open cells but fewer of them so the air spreads quickly and you sink into the foam faster. It may feel good to begin with but it does not offer the support that memory foam mattresses boast. You don't sink into memory foam if it is of high quality. It takes a lot longer for the foam to adapt to you to give you maximum support.

Short Life Span - Lower density memory foam will wear out quickly and will lose its shape quickly, as mentioned above. You may seen signs of sagging within the first year of sleeping on a cheaply made mattress!

Cost You More In The Long Term - As cheap memory foam doesn't last as long as quality memory foam, you will pay more in the long run having to replace your mattress over and over and more frequently. This can be said of cheap furniture too. Generally cheaply made furniture (usually made from MDF) doesn't last very long, particularly if you have to move house, where it tends to fall apart.

Not Much Support - The point of a memory foam mattress is to get supportive and comfortable rest. However a cheaply made one won't give you the support you need or the comfort you desire – making you waste money!

Try A Memory Foam Mattress Topper Instead - Alternatively, if you want the memory foam mattress feel but do not have the money for a luxurious mattress, a topper can be a great alternative. Toppers are much cheaper than getting a completely new mattress but be just as good.

Cheap Doesn't Always Mean Bad - Of course though, just because a mattress is cheap, doesn't mean you are going to get a poor quality mattress. A great way to make sure a cheap memory foam mattress is good, is to check out memory foam mattress reviews. Gather all the information you can from the mattress as well as customer reviews to make your decision.
