This is cause for concern because many mattress fires involve sleeping persons. Over the years, many people, including many children, have suffered injuries and deaths due to the high ignition and burn rates of mattresses. This is why the state of California passed a law in 2005 regulating that all mattresses sold in California must pass a 30 minute ignition test. Many mattress manufacturers began treating their goods with fire retardant chemicals to meet the California standards. That is why it was easy for the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to pass regulation in 2007 that expanded the fire retardation standards to all mattresses sold in the United States. Since then, there has been much debate over the safety of sleeping on mattresses that are treated with fire retardant chemicals. According to the Sleep Products Safety Council and the CPSC, the chemicals that are used to treat mattresses to hamper flammability are safe for extended exposure, both for the consumers and the workers who manufacturer mattresses. However, many groups claim that regulation of these chemicals is lacking and so is transparency in manufacturing methods. This means that it is difficult for consumers to know for certain what chemicals may be in or on mattresses.
Wood from traditional style mattresses and box springs will be gladly accepted for repurposing by people who enjoy building things and fixing things around the home. Chances are good that these same persons would appreciate the donation of the heavy duty steel inner springs, for use in new projects. These springs can be painted and used in creating unique garden art.
The foam that innerspring mattress manufacturers use to foam encase their mattresses is polyurethane. Therefore, judging by the warranties of the above referenced manufacturers, the foam encasement foam will soften also. If you sit on the edge of your mattress when you wake in the morning and to put on your shoes, this firm sitting edge will soften and turn into a soft sitting edge and become softer than the innerspring unit in the middle thus also changing the sleep surface at the edge.
Mattresses that are made of mostly synthetic materials (polyester rayon will make you sleep warmer too) they do not breath was well as the higher quality ticking cotton and cashmeres-, I read in a survey in sleep savvy magazine that this is one of the main concerns consumers have about their mattress is that it will keep them at a comfortable temperature.
