What is CertiPUR-US® Certified Foam?
Know who you’re getting into bed with is a great piece of advice when shopping for a mattress. Studies have shown that people would rather go to the dentist than shop for a mattress. There are so many factors to consider in selecting the mattress you’re going to sleep on for the next several years. Therefore, at Bill’s Bed, we’ve taken some of the anxiety away by using only CertiPUR Certified foams in all our mattress foams.
CertiPUR started in 2008 because they were concerned about the substandard foams imported into the country. It was suspected that foams were made with chemicals that were banned in the US and Canada were being used and made into mattresses. CertiPUR is a third party that regulates and approves foams
that meet their rigorous guidelines.
CertiPUR-US certified foams are:
✓ Made without ozone depleters
✓ Made without PBDEs, TDCPP or TCEP (”Tris”) flame retardants
✓ Made without mercury, lead, and other heavy metals
✓ Made without formaldehyde
✓ Made without phthalates regulated by the Consumer Product Safety Commission
✓ Low VOC (Volatile Organic Compound) emissions for indoor air quality (less than 0.5 parts per million)
