Frequently Asked Questions about Mattress Toppers

Why buy a mattress topper?

While there are many reasons people buy mattress toppers, the main reason is they add a nice comfort layer to a firm mattress. If you are looking for an additional layer of comfort to achieve a beautiful night’s rest, then a mattress topper is for you. Additionally, they can increase your mattress’s lifespan, and they are much easier to remove and clean than the mattress itself. 

Which thickness is best for a mattress topper?

At The Clean Bedroom, mattress toppers range from 1.5" to 5" in depth. It depends on your mattress and the comfort level you are seeking. Thinner toppers can help prolong the life of your mattress while still providing an extra layer of comfort. Once you get up to 3" you’re looking at a mattress topper that will provide greater comfort and support. You can make your mattress feel either firmer or softer depending on the mattress topper you choose.  4" and 5" toppers are considered the maximum thickness for mattress toppers and on top of providing comfort, they are ideal for covering the deficiencies of an older mattress.

Is a latex or wool mattress topper better?

It ultimately depends on your preference, but there are some distinct differences between the two. Wool mattress toppers provide you with an extra comfort layer on top of your mattress, and they provide a super cozy and enveloping feel. They also provide excellent temperature control.

Latex mattress toppers will increase the softness of your mattress and provide pressure relief and additional support. With latex, it depends on the thickness and firmness of the topper. Overall, wool can be described as "fluffier" and latex "spongier," but it is based on your preference.   

Do I need to worry about VOCs with a latex topper?

Not at The Clean Bedroom. For latex mattresses and toppers, the Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) ensures that the latex used is at least 95 percent organic. No chemical retardants or polyurethane were used in manufacturing. Therefore, you don’t have to worry about volatile organic compounds’ harmful off-gassing since The Clean Bedroom’s latex toppers are nontoxic and GOLS-certified.  

Are latex toppers good for the environment?

Organic latex is both sustainable for the planet and a healthy option for humans to sleep on every night. Organic latex is a naturally sourced material from rubber trees which is much safer for both the planet and humans. The Clean Bedroom offers only all-natural and organic latex mattress toppers, so you can rest assured they meet your standards for healthy living. Since they extend the life of your mattress, they also reduce waste.

For adding additional comfort to your current mattress, we recommend at least a  3" mattress topper.
