Why Should You Look For Mattresses Made of GREENGUARD Certified Materials?

As we spend more time at home, it is important than ever to consider indoor air quality. Our home and belongings are made with thousands of different materials, but only a fraction are tested for potential health effects. Chemicals released into the air from these materials, unseen mold, and poor ventilation can cause the air inside your home to have a higher level of pollutants than outside. According to the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), levels of indoor air pollutants can be two to five times higher than outdoor levels.


To help reduce indoor air pollution and the risk of chemical exposure, look for products that have achieved GREENGUARD certification. GREENGUARD certified materials meet low chemical emissions and are tested for more than 10,000 individual volatile organic compounds (VOC). VOCs are emitted gases that include a variety of chemicals that may have long- and short-term health effects. In order to earn the GREENGUARD certification, the materials are tested in an environmentally controlled chamber to determine how many chemicals are gassed off. To keep the certification, the products are tested annually. A list of certified materials can be found on the GREENGUARD website.


GREENGUARD certified materials are an excellent choice for families with respiratory issues and who want to breathe in cleaner air. Custom Mattress Makers uses the best raw materials to construct their mattresses. Along with CertiPUR-US foam that is certified to have low emission and made without ozone depleters, Custom Mattress Makers uses a GREENGUARD Certified water-based adhesive in all of their mattresses.
