3 Steps to Detoxify Your Sleeping Space

June 15th, 2015

Many of our customers come to us looking for an all natural/ chemical free mattress option. We spend one-third of our lives asleep in our bedrooms, so here are some tips to create a healthy, non-toxic space:

1. Sleep on an all natural latex mattress from FloBeds. Our Organic Mattresses feature premium 100% Natural Talalay latex inside a luxurious organic euro knit cotton quilted to organic wool for a chemical free mattress.

2. Use solid wood furniture- like our Pine Slat foundation. Engineered to be put together with 8 wing-nuts, this strong foundation is constructed of solid wood sides and 3-1/2″ pine slats to provide a firm surface with air circulation for your mattress.

3. Use organic cotton sheets. Most cotton is grown using harmful pesticides and fertilizers, so make sure you go with an organic option.

S-Cape to a Better Night

June 8th, 2015

“We’ve had our beds for almost 3 years, and there are still a couple of times a week that we’re sitting up in bed, drinking our morning coffee, ‘taking our massage’ and one of us will say. “Boy am I glad we got these beds!”. They truly are SO comfortable.” -Susan K

Susan is referring to her FloBed and the adjustable base she purchased for her mattress. One our new favorite adjustable bases is the S-Cape.

FloBeds vs. The Other Guys

May 19th, 2015

CleanMattress

Have the leading brand name mattresses companies invented a new way to build a bed?  In a word, no. They are working hard to provide more of the same:  bigger beds that require different sheets, sometimes even different headboards.  Yet still they are using the same spring construction, with more layers polyurethane foam.  Sometimes they add a layer of latex.  But in order to keep profits up, you will usually find lots of poly-foam going by the name super-soft foam, upholstery layer, extra plush pillow top

Polyurethane Foam

Polyurethane foam, or poly-foam, is a petroleum product designed to imitate latex derived from the rubber tree (foam rubber).  It weighs about one fourth the weight of latex, and lasts about one fourth as long (3-5 years instead of 20 years for Talatech Latex). Poly-foam is like a sponge.  Because of its open cell structure, every time you move on your bed you are sucking into the bed dust, moisture, old skin, pollens and whatever is in the air.  Wool and latex don’t do this.

The FloCare Clean Mattress

We don’t use any poly-foam for added plushness in our better beds.   Instead, we use wool.  Naturally better.  Our covers are not as “fluffy” as the “high-profile” mattresses sold in many stores, just better.   Our covers unzip, so you can easily hang your mattress-top in the sun.  We suggest sunning your mattress-top a couple of times a year.  Sunning will kill dust mites. Latex is dust mite resistant.  If you suffer from severe allergies, with the top off, you can vacuum  your mattress components to remove allergens.  That, combined with your sunned mattress top will provide you with the cleanest and most comfortable mattress possible.

The FloBeds Family

FloBeds (1)

We are a family owned and operated business, which makes it easy for us to offer our customers the individual attention they deserve.

Dave Turner entered the sleep business in 1971. His children have always joked that they have been working for their father since they were able to put stamps on envelopes. Today the FloBeds shop is run by Dave Turner, his wife Anne, and oldest son Dewey. When you call to purchase your FloBed you will most likely be greeted by Dewey or his coworker Garrett.

Our team gets excited every time a new customer calls to learn about our FloBeds. We also love hearing from our existing customers, whether it’s to help adjust layers or to sell them another bed. Since we are a family owned business we are able to work quickly and efficiently as a team to keep our customers happy. The best part about buying a FloBed is you have a support system and a family that will be there for you over the next 20 years.

Our multi-layer latex cores accommodate the firmness needs of each individual sleeper by allowing each of you to choose your own firmness combinations.

Just What the Doctor Ordered

May 6th, 2015

Here is a little thank you note we got from one of our customers Dr. Lago-

“As an orthopedic surgeon, I have seen many patients who have been adversely affected by an uncomfortable bed. The obliteration of pressure points has been a major result. Motion on either side of the bed goes un-noticed with FloBed. The old days when I awoke with a low backache are gone.”

Certified Pure

Have you ever taken a second to stop and think about what you are sleeping on? If you have a FloBed you have nothing to worry about, however, not all mattresses are made with the same materials that we use. You spend a third of your life in bed… consider what you’re sleeping on. We were the first to use wool to pass the federal fire standards for mattresses, making our covers chemical free. Organic Cotton is obvious… but we even wash it before quilting it to our organic wool.

We even use solid Ponderosa Pine for our slat foundations. The Pine slat foundations are FCS certified of course.

Okeo-Tex

FloBeds is Okeo-Tex certified. Okeo-Tex is the world leader in testing for human safety in textiles.

People spend about a third of their lives in bed. We want to make sure that third of your life is not only comfortable but chemical free.

Our Most Popular Mattress

March 25th, 2015

Often times when people call FloBeds to learn more about our latex mattresses they ask, “What is your most popular bed?” Well the answer is the vZone.

The vZone Mattress

vZone Latex Mattress

In addition to the top to bottom & side to side customization of our Select & Deluxe models, the vZone features head to toe adjustable zoning to provide pressure point relief for hips and shoulders as well as additional lumbar support. With the Organic Natural or Original vZone, your mattress is customized and adjustable in every direction!

What Our Customers Have to Say

four stars

 

 

My wife and I have been customers of Flobeds since almost the beginning. We started with an individual control air bed and then migrated to the latex once that was available back in 2000. It was now time to replace a couple of the foam cores and we upgraded to the vZone! What a difference a day makes! My wife woke up after the first night with absolutely no back pain and each night keeps getting better!

The products and people are just the best. I applaud them for their innovation and keeping a step ahead of all the other brands you hear on the radio and TV. Keep it up Flobeds!!

Thanks Dave!
Cheers,
Greg

Here are some fun activity suggestions from Atrium, “Imagine sitting in our flower-filled atrium garden while sipping your choice of morning beverage and planning your day. Will it be sifting through mounds of beautiful sea glass at one of our glass beaches, a train ride through the redwoods, horseback riding on the beach, or walking through our downtown and museum?”(Atrium Website)
