I remember when the bed arrived. Those boxes are really sturdy and the bed so easily fits inside due to its modular design. I have to tell you, I hung on to those boxes for a while just in case I was going to move but after 10 years I had to let them go to recycling.
My wife Virginia and I love our bed.
We have had it for over ten years and it continues to give us a great night?s sleep, the construction is solid, the support is great and we just enjoy staying in bed.
The only maintenance activity we perform is taking the mattress apart each year and putting it back together. I?m not really sure its recommended but it just seems right!
We are writing a story about Celebrating 20 Years of Dreams in a Box, (or: How a Generation Knows Mattresses Come UPS) and I thought we should share our customer’s experience with FloBeds. We would love to hear from you, and if your family has multi-generations sleeping on FloBeds… be sure to include that. Would you consider making a statement about your memories of mattresses being delivered via UPS? Just drop me an email… or if you use Google+ you can post at google.com/+flobeds/about.
ps. as my thanks for sharing, we will send you a 10″ x 14″ Twice Fluffed Travel Pillow.
As we are heading into spring, it is a great time to sun your FloBeds Mattress Cover. Unlike other mattress covers, our FloBeds cover can be zipped offed and removed. You never want to put your cover in the washing machine since it will shrink, however, it is a great idea to hang your mattress 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.
There are some things to keep in mind when you are adjusting your free FloBeds Twice Fluffed Shredded Latex Pillow, including the depth of the curve in your neck, your sleeping position, and your mattress firmness. For back sleepers make sure the pillow fills in the gap between your neck and pillow. You do not want to be propped up so high that you can see your feet. Side sleepers should have a pillow that fills in the void between your ear and the bed. Your pillow should be thicker than a back sleeper’s pillow. Stomach sleepers need a thinner pillow to try to keep your body aligned. You do not want your pillow so full that your head is higher than the rest of your body. Luckily the FloBeds Latex Pillow can adjust to meet anyone’s needs!
Did you know that sleeping posture is just as important as sitting posture? It is very vital that you protect your back while you sleep. You put the least amount of pressure on it by sleeping on your back or side. Side sleepers should sleep with a pillow between their knees to keep proper spine alignment. Stomach sleepers specifically should use a smaller pillow to keep your head aligned while sleeping. When purchasing and customizing your FloBeds mattress make sure you keep in mind that stomach sleepers need a firmer mattress than back or side sleepers. If you have more questions please give us a call at 1-800-356-2337 and one of our firmness experts can give you more information on which mattress configuration fits your sleeping position.
Spring is right around the corner, which means it is almost time for the big spring cleaning week. Although this can seem like a daunting task, it can feel very rewarding after everything is done. Here are some tips if you are determined to spring forward with a nice clean slate.
Have a checklist- this is important so you can keep track of your progress and make sure you don’t forget any that may slip your mind during this busy week. Click here for a great example from Martha Stuart.
Have a specific project for each day- that way you can focus and complete each project thoroughly. When there is a lot to do, it can get overwhelming and discouraging if you do not break up your tasks. Every day you will have a small win.
Have all of your cleaning supplies ready- once you look through the checklist, make a list of the items you will need to complete your tasks. Go to the store ahead of time to collect everything you need so you are ready to go before your spring cleaning week.

At FloBeds we pride ourselves in selling latex mattresses specifically. We believe latex is the solution to all of your uncomfortable and restless nights. According to the ErgoCheck system (pictured below) a latex mattress distributes pressure more evenly than even the most expensive innerspring mattress. The ErgoCheck system is a measuring pad with 648 individual pressure sensors distributed across the testing surface. It shows the physical pressure between the body and mattress to determine pressure points.
Tests have demonstrated that areas with pressure measuring above 32 millimeters of mercury (shown in dark blue) will inhibit blood circulation and cause muscle ache and tossing and turning.
So even science shows you that a Latex mattress is your solution to a better nights sleep.
“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!”
