In order to achieve a pleasant, deep and restful sleep there are many factors to take into account, however, without a doubt the choice of a good mattress is decisive. It is possible that very different opinions are found when we embark on the search for the ideal mattress, this is because the subject that concerns us is very subjective, each person has particular tastes and preferences when it comes to falling asleep.
WHEN TO CHANGE THE MATTRESS?
Possibly before reaching the time of change recommended by the manufacturers’ associations such as Asocama, the mattress will have signs of having lost its properties. The mattress has a useful life of about ten years. However, if symptoms of sinking are found or ultimately the quality of sleep worsens, we should examine the condition of the mattress. Let’s not forget that people also change, it is possible that the mattress was ideal at the time of purchase and after 6 years our physical characteristics or preferences change substantially and we need a new mattress that adapts to our needs.

TYPES OF MATTRESSES
Below we explain the types of mattress based on their manufacture, materials and properties:
MATTRESS WITH POCKETED SPRINGS
It is a spring structure in which each spring is independently encapsulated in a layer of fabric. This allows each spring to act independently, thus allowing freedom of movement, which makes it a good option for double mattresses where there are notable differences in weight between the two people. Different comfort layers are usually applied to the pocket spring shell, usually HR foam or memory foam. An adaptable and breathable solution.
HR (HIGH RESILIENCE) FOAM MATTRESS
The core is made up of a block of open cell foam, it is normally a very adaptable mattress and can have different types of comfort (firm, medium and soft). Different comfort layers and a variety of padding fabrics can also be applied to the core. An HR foam mattress does not necessarily have to be soft.
The latex cores are obtained from the resin of a variety of tropical tree, it is a natural and hypoallergenic material, although there are also synthetic compositions. As it is also an elastic material, it is recommended for articulated bed bases. The latex mattress is also usually quite heavy, which makes it difficult to turn over. It offers a high adaptation to the contour of the body, offering a firmer support than memory foam.
There is no mattress that is viscoelastic in its entirety, they always need a support that provides firmness, normally memory is used in combination with HR foams. Also known as “memory foam”, it is the most adaptable material, it reacts to body heat and reduces pressure points in the heaviest areas.
BONELL SPRING MATTRESS
It is the most classic spring mattress, in its favor it has a high degree of breathability. It is also played in this type of structure with the comfort layers of different materials. It is usually an inexpensive type of mattress.
ASPECTS TO TAKE INTO ACCOUNT FOR THE CHOICE OF THE MATTRESS
When choosing the mattress that best suits our needs, we must be clear that there is no material that is indisputably the best, in fact, there are numerous discrepancies between specialists, manufacturers and consumers. The choice of the mattress is absolutely subjective, it is interesting to take into account the recommendations but when buying the important thing is to be able to try and lie down on the mattress for about ten minutes to get an idea of the comfort of the mattress in question.
Air circulation is important both for comfort and for maintaining the properties of the mattress. In this sense, closed-core mattresses (latex, HR foam, viscoelastic) are less breathable, despite the fact that nowadays open-cell structures allow greater ventilation than in the past. In the spring mattress it allows greater breathability, whether they are pocket springs or the classic Bonell.
The temperature of the mattress is closely linked to the concept of perspiration, the more breathable the mattress, the greater the feeling of freshness. For the warmer there are also mattresses nowadays that incorporate gel particles that lower the temperature of the mattress.
The most used terms when we talk about adaptability are firmness and softness. Nowadays a large number of materials are combined to convey these sensations to the consumer, that is, we can find very firm foams on the market, and combinations of springs with other materials that provide a very soft feeling of comfort.
