Could the mattress of your dreams be this close?

Parksville shop offers locally sourced, quality products and service to match!

The best way to guarantee a great start to your day is with a good night’s sleep.

Being well-rested is key to tackling those daily duties and is crucial for your well-being – and with the added stress 2020 has brought, a peaceful rest is more important than ever!

Of course, knowing what we need and getting it, are two completely different things.

“A good night’s sleep starts with your mattress. We get to the root cause of why we toss and turn and the solutions to sleep more soundly, which there are many,” explains Mark Nagra of Parksville’s M & N Mattress & Sofa.

So what should you look for in your next one – or better yet, what should you avoid?

A trip to M & N gives you a firsthand experience to items that could transform your home.

A trip to M & N gives you a firsthand experience to items that could transform your home.

It starts with choosing the right material:

“In the mattress industry, customers’ biggest complaints with their mattress is product sagging – so your leaving body impressions in the mattress or it’s becoming too soft,” Nagra explains.

One of the best materials to prevent sagging is natural latex rubber (it’s also the cleanest, most breathable and durable foam-like material available), and the M & N team have a fully loaded inventory of mattresses to help you find your perfect fit.

“If you think of a rubber bouncy ball, when you go to use it after 20 years, it’s still going to bounce and it’ll still be round – that’s the same idea with our mattresses,” Nagra says.

Not only will your mattress keep its shape longer, you’ll also see better warranties with natural latex rubber. The M & N team offers 10 to 25-year warranties with a 0.75-inch sagging allowance, compared to most mattresses in North American which offer 10 year warranties with a 1.5-inch sagging allowance. “Warranties are based on history and life expectancy” notes Nagra.

The take-away? Latex provides a better warranty, less sagging and an overall a longer lasting, healthier product!

Although memory foam is a common mattress material, many are unaware of the potential impacts of up to 61 off-gassing chemicals, including benzene, a known carcinogen found within.

In addition, because the material lacks breathability, it can be difficult to regulate your body’s temperature, which also creates the perfect environment for dust mites. Yikes!

The take-away? Between off-gassing and the ease of overheating, memory foam may not be the most comfortable choice.

Having served Oceanside and the Vancouver Island community for 20 years, they look forward to continuing their award-winning work. With their help, the mattress of your dreams is closer than you think!
