Purchasing a mattress is a big investment. Therefore, it’s important to make sure that you’ve done all your research before buying a new bed. For example, have you checked off these questions? Memory foam? Check. Adjustable bed frame? Check. CertiPUR-US certified mattress? Huh?
CertiPUR-US Certified mattresses give you loads of benefits. Above all, it provides lasting comfort throughout the night and the confidence that your memory foam has met some of the most rigorous guidelines in the industry.
So, what makes CertiPUR-US mattresses worth your while? The certified foam inside the mattress is a healthier and safer alternative to non-certified imported foams that often contain toxic bi-products and chemicals.
Ever heard of chlorofluorocarbons? These ozone-depleting chemicals (commonly known as CFCs) have harmful effects on the environment. As a result, these chemicals have been banned from products sold in the United States. However, mattress companies around the world are still using CFCs to manufacture their foam. You can rest assured that any CertiPUR-US certified mattresses will never use CFCs in the foam manufacturing process, which is certainly a big deal!
Studies have shown that certain flame retardants can lead to cancer, genetic defects or damage fertility. Sound like something you want in your mattress? No way! A Kyvno mattress does not include any flame retardants that have been identified as dangerous to your health. See the full list of prohibited flame retardants here.
Heavy metals such as mercury and lead are components of great concern but are sometimes still used in mattress construction. Overexposure of lead, mercury and other heavy metals can have serious effects on human health, especially young children. In other words, you can sleep soundly on your Kyvno CertiPUR-US certified mattress knowing that there are no traces of these toxic heavy metals.
Formaldehyde is a colorless chemical used to make many household products and materials. This flammable gas is a common cause of poor indoor air quality, which is why a CertiPUR-US certified mattress goes through a chamber emission test after production. This verified that the mattress was made without formaldehyde.
Phthalates are softening agents that are used in many consumer products. However, there are eight specific phthalates that can be dangerous. As a result, these are now prohibited in the construction of children’s products in the United States. To become CertiPUR-US certified, mattresses must undergo a detailed analysis of their memory foam and must not contain any of those eight phthalates.
Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) are released from burning fuel and are a huge component of air pollution. VOC emissions can affect indoor quality and potentially cause short- and long-term side effects after exposure. CertiPUR-US mattresses ensures that the foam used meets the emission standards for safety.
