Why purchase from the Sleep Shop rather than another or online?

the Sleep Shop has been in business for 15 years. The combined mattress experience of our colleagues is over 65 years.

We are very demanding of our manufacturing partners and make sure no toxic flame retardants are present

in any of the products we sell.

As well, you can lie down on our mattresses to see what provides the most comfort and spinal alignment for you personally... no guessing with confusing online sellers or machines depending on an artificial "technology" that decides

what is comfortable for you.   Try before you buy!

We also consider pillows an integral part of your total beneficial sleep experience.

the Sleep Shop is locally owned and operated and we enjoy being part of the Truckee Meadows community.

Should I consider an adjustable base?

Adding an adjustable base to your new mattress provides the ultimate sleep experience.

You are able to fine tune relief from pressure points, find proper spinal alignment and open up breathing passages.

Adjustable bases provide a lifestyle choice geared toward your personal comfort preferences.

Why don't I see common brands in your store?

Because we have control over our product mix, we have made sure to keep toxic flame retardants out of our products.

By working closely with manufacturers, all of us are aware of just what is used in the manufacturing of the mattresses we show.

We do the homework so that you can experience Naturally Safe Sleep!

What is the difference between Dunlop and Talalay Latex?

The traditional Dunlop process has been used in latex manufacture since 1929. The thick rubber sap, or serum, is whipped into a froth in a centrifuge, poured into a mold, covered, and steam baked. Natural sediments in the mixture settle to the bottom of the mold. This makes every Dunlop layer slightly firmer on its bottom side.

 

The Talalay process adds two steps. After the latex is poured, the mold is sealed and the process is continued in a vacuum chamber. The mold is then flash-frozen before it's baked. Talalay latex has a more consistent cell structure from top to bottom and edge to edge. It is also more expensive than Dunlop. All Talalay pieces wider than 40" (Full or larger) are seamed with a safe, natural latex glue. Seam locations will vary.

Why choose natural rubber latex?

       Unlike memory foam, which was originally developed for other things and later came around to the world of mattresses, latex was actually first used as a mattress. In the 1920s, a Scotsman named John Boyd Dunlop created the first latex mattress, which was created from the sap-like substance drained from rubber trees.  These maintained popularity through the 70's when cheaper memory foam became mainstream. 

 Latex is definitely on the rebound now, mainly because it is non-toxic and lasts much longer. In the luxury market, latex rules... the consistent quality, longevity and comfort appeals to those who love sleep!

What does "Only the Best Pass the Test " mean?

When we opened our store in 2007, we wanted to have an easy measurement for Clean and Green mattresses and bedding. 

We decided that an easy way to measure is by using 1,2,3 or 4 leaves, with the ultimate addition of a blue butterfly for organic products.  This makes it easy to direct you to what you want in a sleep set or bedding!
