Maxim Mattresses do not contain fiberglass fire barriers
When it comes to buying a mattress, most people focus on comfort, size, and price. However, there is a hidden danger in many mattresses that most consumers are not aware of: fiberglass.
Fiberglass is commonly used in mattresses as a fire retardant. While it can help prevent fires, it can also pose a serious health risk to humans and pets. Fiberglass can become airborne and be inhaled, causing respiratory issues, skin irritation, and even eye damage.
Fortunately, Maxim Mattresses do not contain fiberglass fire barriers. We take things a step further by handcrafting all of our mattresses and only use CertiPur-US Certified foams, which means they are made without harmful chemicals such as ozone depleters, flame retardants, and heavy metals.
Additionally, Maxim Mattress products meet or exceed federal fire retardancy requirements by using a more expensive but fiberglass-free solution. This commitment to safety and quality sets Maxim Mattress apart from other mattress brands.
As a consumer, it’s important to be aware of the potential dangers of fiberglass in mattresses and to choose a brand that prioritizes safety and quality. By choosing Maxim Mattress, you can rest easy knowing that you’re sleeping on a mattress that is both comfortable and safe for you and your loved ones.
How Do I Know If My Mattress Has Fiberglass?
If you’re concerned about whether or not your mattress contains fiberglass, there are a few things you can look out for. Here are some tips to help you determine if your mattress has fiberglass:
- Check if your mattress arrived rolled up in a box. Many “bed-in-a-box” type mattresses are made with fiberglass fire barriers.
- Look at the law label on your mattress. This is the tag that contains information about the materials used in your mattress. If it lists fiberglass as a component, then your mattress contains fiberglass.
- Check for new rashes or irritation on your skin after removing your mattress cover. Fiberglass particles can become airborne and can irritate the skin, causing rashes and itching.
If you suspect that your mattress contains fiberglass, it’s important to take action to protect yourself and your loved ones. You may want to consider replacing your mattress with one that is free from harmful chemicals and materials.
At Maxim Mattress, we are committed to providing our customers with safe and high-quality mattresses. We never use fiberglass in any of our products, and we handcraft each mattress using CertiPur-US Certified foams.
