Shelby Township, MI – October 13, 2017 – Jeff Scheuer, owner of Mattress To Go and creator of Beducation®, the nation’s premier online video resource for mattress education, has penned another article that is now featured on Sleep-Geek.com, the retail mattress industry’s leading web site.
“I’m honored to again have been chosen to write a small series of articles about mattress myths for the Sleep Geek website,” stated Scheuer. “Sleep Geek is the leading website for the education of mattress retailers in America and they promote educated, objective advice. The staff at Sleep Geek wanted someone with experience in the retail industry but also someone with an educated background regarding mattress design and construction, so the fit was perfect for this series of articles de-bunking mattress industry myths. This is the third article in that series, and deals withe style over substance, or the fancy names many manufacturers place on ordinary materials to make you think something is better than it really is.

Uncovering the Myth: Firm The Fancier The Name, The Better The Product
A good rule of thumb I use is that the larger the aggrandizement and the longer the descriptor for a foam layer used within a mattress (“Super-Deluxe Polymeric and Gel Thermically Conductive 10x Unobtanium Foam) the lower the density/quality/durability of the material.
Hey, I know marketers need to eat just like the rest us, but let’s at least include densities so we can have an idea as to the durability of the foam. And, if there is indeed something unique within a new foam offering, claims shouldn’t be propped up by comparing the foam to a piece of navel lint.
It’s important as an RSA to become educated about the common foam densities for better quality polyurethane foams and memory foam, and learning that density and the hardness of polyurethane foam aren’t necessarily related as it tends to be with latex. This comes into play not only for showing a quality product to your customers and managing their expectations of comfort, but it’s also important when recommending the appropriate materials to people of all sizes, especially larger individuals, as you want to make sure that your suggestions serve your clients well. Dihydrogen monoxide sounds pretty fancy, but in the end it’s just water.
