We Stand Behind Our Mattresses

“My husband and I spent two years researching and trying out organic and all natural mattresses from manufacturers such as OMI, Savvy Rest, and Hastens before deciding on a Flobeds mattress. We took a road trip to Fort Bragg just to try out the mattresses and we could not be happier with our purchase.

My husband is a rotating shift worker and a good night’s sleep is extremely important. When our Costco latex mattress started to sag in the middle after only a few years we decided it was time to upgrade to a mattress with a longer life and better support. When I read the research on the chemicals used in cheap latex mattresses and the off-gassing that occurs with chemically stabilized talalay latex I quickly became convinced of the need for an all-natural and organic alternative. I also spent a lot of time comparing Dunlop latex vs. talalay latex mattresses and was reassured to learn that the process Flobeds uses to create their talalay latex is all natural without any chemicals used to stabilize the latex. There is no question that Flobeds is offering a top-of-the-line quality product at a significant discount than their competitors.

Following over an hour of extensive showroom research we decided that a Z-Zone talalay latex mattress was the right fit for us (v-zone over firm over extra firm). We also bought the euro slat foundation and like the flexible support if offers. The bed shipped in a week and was easy to assemble as per the instructions and online video.

What should really be noted is the exceptional level of customer service. Our salesperson, Dewey, was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and his father Dave was also a delight to work with. We both love the sleep firmness guarantee and plan on buying a medium or soft layer to accommodate a possibly pregnancy in the next few years.

This was a major purchase for us and we really felt more comfortable dealing with a company that will stand behind our mattress. With over 33 years in the business, Flobeds is obviously leading the industry in quality and customer service. ”

dtbeach2Customers often ask where the “Flo” in FloBeds comes from. Well, Dave Turner started FloCare many years ago. FloCare sold waterbeds, or flotation sleep systems. Although we have moved to latex only mattresses we kept our name FloBeds.

5 Things You Should Know About Organic Plein-Air Wool

August 10th, 2015

• Pure organic Plein-Air Wool® fiber used in bedding materials promotes maximum air-flow around your body, and provides natural moisture- wicking to help you sleep cool and dry.
• NO chemicals or acids are used in the production or processing of organic wool. The sheep are not dipped or treated with any pesticides or herbicides.
• The organic wool fleece used in our mattress covers is washed with pure fresh water and baking soda – no additives – preserving the natural lanolin content and a skin friendly pH value of 7.5.
• Organic wool also provides chemical-free fire resistance!
• Wool’s natural absorbency offers another distinct advantage. Because of its extraordinary ability to hold moisture, wool fiber is inherently flame-resistant.

Did you know the Hulk sleeps on our bed? We mentioned a few years ago that Mark Ruffalo has purchased four mattresses from us. So if you have a FloBed you are in good company! If you don’t have a FloBed yet then what are you waiting for? If it is good enough to keep the Hulk happy then it is good enough for you.

We love getting Yelp Reviews. Here is what the most recent Yelper said:

“Best mattresses EVER! After trying out about 5 different kinds of beds and manufacturers,  I will always buy another FloBed. It just doesn’t get any more comfortable or custom than this. Prompt delivery and easy to put together. I downsized from a king FloBed recently to a queen FloBed and love it just as much. The king was still in great shape after 12-15 years, I just needed a smaller bed for my place. Don’t even bother with other companies. FloBeds stands by their workmanship and are the most customizable that I’ve found. They have a terrific replacement policy once you buy from them…as your needs change, you can upgrade parts of your mattress for very little money. Ask about this “Goldie Locks” program. Plus, you will never feel your partner flop around. Back problems are all resolved…even with a serious spinal compression fracture. I healed using this bed and will always maintain good back health on this bed. I have the original FloBed.”

Dew

If you have called FloBeds you have probably spoken to Dewey Turner. Dewey started at FloBeds 12 years ago! His fondest memory is when he went to Utah in 2009 to get a new Edge Sweets Latex-Foam Horizontal Saw. That saw made it possible for FloBeds to control the quality and precision of all Latex cuts.

Dave and Anne Turner brought their business, FloBeds, up to Fort Bragg in 1992. First they ran their business out of their home on Highway 20. FACT: Anne even recalls that their shipping department was based out of a horse barn on the property! In 1998 they opened up shop on Redwood Ave. in downtown Fort Bragg, and they have been there ever since. If you ever stop by our shop to try a mattress make sure you check out Anne Turner’s award-winning quilts.

4-Star–I purchased two organic FloBeds last October. Every night I get into bed and say “I love my bed”. I am so thankful for the team of experts at FloBed. They customized our beds perfectly. I also purchased the cotton sheets, wool mattress covers and the contoured neck pillow. All are wonderful. The neck pillow is perfect. It is a wonderful feeling knowing that you are doing everything possible to protect your health from chemicals and EMF’s while you are sleeping. Organic latex and no metal in the mattresses or the bed frame keep me confident and peaceful. My teenage son would probably sleep all day in his FloBed if he could. Thank you so very much. A great nights sleep is priceless. Vicki Leesburg, FL

You Deserve Options

June 24th, 2015

We tell customers every day- one size does not fit all. Make sure you get a mattress that fits your body. Here is what one customer had to say about his ability to have options:

“I ordered a queen all latex mattress and fir-slat foundation from Flobeds, and received it this week. Customer service was outstanding. After having some questions answered on the phone, the packages showed up on time and well-packed. Assembly was not difficult, and I was pleased with the quality of workmanship in the foundation, latex, and cover. The latex has a very unique feel, very different from our past spring mattresses. The feel of the bed is difficult to describe; if you haven’t slept on a good latex bed before, you’ll have to experience it for yourself. The latex is very supportive, yet soft enough to feel VERY comfortable. “Pressure points” and poor support are clearly NOT problems with this mattress. I was tired of feuding with my wife over whether to have a firm or soft mattress. Flobeds bypassed that whole issue with its ability to custom make each side of the bed to our preferences (this was the biggest factor in our choosing Flobeds). The transition from side to side is very subtle, so you don’t abruptly “drop off” from the firm to soft side. It is also good to have the option of switching the firmness at any point. Thank you for making a quality product. It is nice to get a good night’s rest! By the way, your website was nicely designed and informative (I liked the sheep!).”
