Serta Mattresses – The Perfect Sleeper

Serta is better known for its most sold mattress, The Perfect Sleeper Mattress. The company swears by the comfort it provides and maintains it offers vale for money. Let’s see how true the claims of the manufacturer are.

Serta is considered to be the second most renowned brand of mattress and known to have lowest return rate in this business. And the Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress continues to maintain its status of a best seller. That’s all fine, but it is manufactured using the same techniques and materials that the mattress industry has been patronizing for the last so many years. There is an apprehension that other manufacturers offer a similarly produced mattress at lower prices, and then there are other producers who offer technically superior mattress at prices in line with that of Perfect Sleeper mattress. Here’s a closer look to better understand the difference in two.

Ultimately, the quality of any product, mattress included, is governed by the quality of raw materials used for making it and its design. Manufacturing of any Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress employs continuous wire coil with head to toe helical design and has more than 1500 coils. Going by the industry standard, that’s quite high, a number. Many a time the limitations of continuous wire coil have been realized and are considered almost obsolete. The reported drawbacks of this item include providing inadequate postural support and the disturbance caused to one partner as the other partner shifts in bed. Latest materials like pocket springs, latex and memory foam reportedly overcome all those problems. Yet, the newer mattress too has its own drawbacks.

Pocket spring mattresses are known to remain excellent in the beginning, but the springs soon wear out leaving dunks in the mattress. Latex mattresses are not so long lasting as traditional mattresses. The feel of memory foam is quite different from traditional spring mattresses; something many people don’t feel comfortable with. There are many who sleep most comfortably on a continuous coil mattress and Serta, apart from using more than average coil count in the mattress, also make coils from the best grade of steel.

The coil is further intricately covered by 5 zone high-density foam. It also has a fire blocker insulator. An edge support system forms a part of any Serta mattress. The purpose of providing durable edge is to make it last longer, extend the sleeping surface and prevent roll-off’.

The mattress top is finished with Advanced Comfort Quilt. This gives the mattress very pleasing looks and also facilitates ventilation to keep the body cool.

Of course, there are competitors offering comparable mattresses at lower prices, but before you buy any mattress you should be aware of what goes into the making a mattress. Some of the features you should know and compare while buying a mattress are the coil count, density of foam used and ticking and quilt (check if it’s 100%cotton or a cheaper alternative).

Having known all the plus points of Serta Perfect Sleeper, it’s worth knowing its drawbacks too. This being a spring mattress certainly needs to be flipped regularly, else it begins to sag. Now, it’s a heavy mattress, making flipping quite a task, especially for frail people or those having issues of backache. Though Serta Perfect Sleeper comes with a warranty of ten years, customers have complained that the company refused to honor it at times, and claimed that the sagging and lumps appeared because of improper use.

On the whole, the Serta Perfect Sleeper remains a good mattress made to the best standards. If you prefer latex or memory foam Serta also offers the same, but personally I would recommend a Tempur Pedic mattress. The Serta Perfect Sleeper would be the ideal choice for those who better like continuous coil mattresses.
