Calling Paul

Share

 

Have you noticed someone new answering the phone at FloBeds? That is the one and only Paul. He started a few months ago and has become an important part of our team. We interviewed Paul so you can get to know him better:

Q: What do you like about working at FloBeds?

A: I love the atmosphere! When I first started working here I repeatedly asked myself, “What are you doing here pal? You are not a salesman. You hate talking people into anything!” But I soon realized the awesome family aka management, puts no pressure into selling beds. The product is so good it sells itself! All I do is provide service and information, I love it. The office is completely open with all the desks facing each other, whenever I have a question or when someone needs anything we just vocally launch it across the room and answers come flying back. On a typical day we get to hang out and share thoughts about basketball and other tough guy things, while working of course ^_^, oh and there is always nice upbeat music playing.

Q: What is your ideal FloBed model and firmness setup?

A: I am currently sleeping on an Eastern King Deluxe Latex Mattress placed on the Euro Slat Foundation, with the cores setup as medium over firm on top of extra firm. I literally dream about this bed while sleeping on it. I am juggling three jobs and the feeling I get when I come home and melt into this mattress is indescribable. <—- did not mean to sound like an ad.. its just awesome!

Q: Do you prefer Natural or Blended Latex?

A: I tried but I really can’t tell the difference. My bed at home is blended latex and I have taken quite a few quality control office naps on our 100% natural latex version. I have come to the conclusion that more office naps will be required for final judgement.

Q: What do you like about speaking with FloBeds’ customers?

A: I like taking care of people, and I love that everyone who calls in is calling for the same exact reason; they are looking for that good melt into your mattress sleep, and I have been given the tools to help them make it happen. BRING IT ON FRIENDS!!!

 

Restored Body Upon Awakening – Hannah Teter

FloBeds is proud to craft beds for some very talented athletes. Everyone deserves a good night’s sleep, and that can be especially hard for athletes. That is what we are here for! Here is what snowboarder Hannah Teter thinks about FloBeds:

“I could not be more happy about my FloBed… it provides everything that I‘ve ever been looking for, from comfort to recovery. It is so important to sleep on a healthy Organic bed that can give you more than just a good night’s sleep, but also a restored body upon awakening. I wish that I could pack this bed in my bag and bring it everywhere with me!” -Hannah Teter

Which firmness is right for you?


“We’ve had the FloBed about 6 months now and love it! We were both experiencing morning back pain with our previous pillow top mattress. After researching the qualities of latex mattresses we decided to try it. We were very impressed with the ability to create your own firmness levels to match your body type and preferences. Very easy to put together and the best news – no more back pain!”

Sometimes customers are hesitant to switch to Latex. We understand it is a big change, but if you are looking for a high-quality mattress that provides amazing support, we have the one for you. Just pick the firmness combination that is going to work best for your specific needs and get ready to start sleeping better.

Natural Talalay Latex vs. Blended Talalay Latex

Many customers ask- what is the difference between Natural and Original Blended Latex? Well look, touch and feel is the same. Natural Latex is made with 100% Natural Talalay and produced using no fillers, petrochemicals. The Natural is made with 100% milk from the rubber tree. We source our Natural Latex from Radium in the Netherlands. FloBeds 100% Natural Latex is biodegradable and Oekotex Certified (Europe’s highest environmental consumer product standard) to be free of harmful substances or chemicals.

Original Latex is blended 70% synthetic and 30% natural latex. Our Original Latex come for Latex International. All of our latex is naturally hypo-allergenic, anti-microbial (Bacteria, mold and mildew cannot live in latex) and dust mite resistant (tests prove latex is 3 times more resistant to dust mites than a traditional mattress) making it the perfect mattress material for allergy sufferers or anyone interested in breathing fresh, clean air while they sleep.

 

Bright-Eyed and Bushy-Tailed Students

Inside the student mattress

It always seemed like my parents had a better mattress than me. Well, FloBed parents do not make the same mistake. Here is some great news: we sell a version of your mattress that is perfect for your kids!

The Student Mattress features two layers of Talalay Latex to make a 6″ mattress. We use our same Euro Stretch knit organic cotton that we use in all our mattresses. For students we quilted needled wool on all sides to provide a cool Tite-Top surface that breathes and wicks away moisture. And since wool is naturally fire resistant, we don’t have to add chemicals or artificial barriers to meet the Federal Flame Resistant Standard. We use blems, minor defects or laminated cores to create the highly affordable Student Mattress. Per special request, we can make a student mattress out of first quality cores for $100 more.

No more excuses. Nothing but bright-eyed and bushy-tailed smiling students every morning. Ok, maybe we won’t guarantee that, but you know we can guarantee the rest you & your students need!

High Customer Satisfaction Rating

Share

Here at FloBeds customers satisfaction is our top priority. One customer mentioned:

“I stumbled on that site “sleeplikethedead.com” and it was here I discovered Flobeds. I noticed them because they had one of the highest customer satisfaction ratings of any manufacturer. That was impressive, especially in such a subjective area as sleep ware. I called Flobeds and bugged their sales staff for a few weeks with questions. They were always courteous and helpful, and knew a lot about their product. I really liked their business model of shipping you the bed in components that you build yourself into what feels best for you. I am a tweak-er so this fit my mode of doing things to a tee. I also like the ability to come back years later and replace components that might be worn out (like the Vzone layer) with new material rather than throwing away something 80% usable and spending another $3-5K. ”

Caring for your Cover

Share

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 and visco-elastic are both dust mite resistant. If you suffer from severe allergies, with the top off, you can vacuum the inside top of your mattress components to remove allergens. That, combined with your sunned mattress top will provide you with cleanest and most comfortable mattress possible.

Your mattress cover may be spot washed with cold water and mild soap. It should be line dried.
Do not machine wash.
Do not put in dryer.

You can also purchase a quality mattress protector that will provide air flow and mattress protection. Our 100% Cotton, inside as well as out, fills the bill. We also offer the St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Pad which can be machine washed.

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 talalay latex mattress 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. ”
