How are Mattresses Made?

By all accounts, the concept of the mattress dates back to prehistoric times. Early humans would lay on piles of leaves, straw, and animal skins to sleep more comfortably and soundly. A better night sleep is still the reason people use mattresses, but the technology is a bit more advanced than it was at the dawn of time. If you’re the type of person who’s interested learning how things are made, you’ll appreciate this short blog post on how mattresses are made. This information may also be useful if you are in the market for a new mattress in San Francisco.

  • The “core” of a typical mattress is a series of wire coils attached to one another with additional wire. This innerspring unit is typically produced by an outside firm and then shipped to a mattress manufacturer.
  • After the innerspring unit is received, workers manually affix the upholstery layers to the innerspring. The insulator layer consists of semi-rigid netting or wire mesh and prevents the cushioning layer from molding to the coils. The number of cushioning layers varies and will determine the feel and comfort of the final mattress product.
  • At the same time the mattress is being built up in one part of the factory, the decorative cover that will serve as the exterior of the mattress is being made in another. The chosen stitching pattern is largely ornamental, but it must also prevent the mattress cover from slipping or creeping over the layers of cushioning
  • Higher quality mattresses are often finished with a pillowtop, a panel filled with soft upholstery and attached to the top of the mattress for a more luxurious and supportive feel. The pillowtop is taped or sewn to the mattress after the decorative cover is in place.

Keep in mind, this process is primarily for your standard coil mattresses. Memory foam mattresses and other specialty mattresses have their own unique manufacturing process, which you can learn all about at Mancini’s Sleepworld.

Good Sleep Hygiene for a Good Night’s Sleep

The term “sleep hygiene” refers to habits and rituals that can promote better quality sleep. The idea of good sleep hygiene was developed in the late 1970s as a method to help people with mild to moderate insomnia fall asleep and stay asleep. If you want to get a better night’s sleep, keep these good sleep hygiene practices in mind. You may also want to visit a mattress store in San Francisco to see what a new mattress can do for your sleep quality.

Maintain a Regular Sleep Pattern

According to the National Sleep Foundation, the most important sleep hygiene measure is to maintain a regular wake and sleep pattern. This means you should try to go to bed and wake up at roughly the same time throughout the week. Staying up and sleeping in very late on the weekends can disrupt your sleep schedule at the beginning of the week.

Avoid Stimulants Close to Bedtime

Not surprisingly, one of the easiest ways to fall asleep more easily is to avoid stimulants close to bedtime. Caffeine, nicotine, and alcohol are some of the most common stimulants people consume before bedtime that make it difficult to fall asleep and stay asleep.

Associate Your Bed with Sleep

No one will blame you for wanting to read or watch TV on your bed, especially if you have a comfortable new mattress from Serta, Sealy, or Tempur-Pedic, but you really should get in the habit of using your bed for sleep only. Associating your bed with sleep will help you fall asleep more quickly at night when you lay down, which can ultimately help you get more sleep each night.

Good sleep hygiene can certainly promote a better night’s sleep, but so can a comfortable new mattress from Mancini’s Sleepworld.
