4 Mattress Buying Myths that are Costing You Money

Myth #1: The more expensive a mattress, the better it is


Mattress models are more alike than the mattress industry would have you believe. In tests conducted by Consumer Reports, a $5,000 mattress performed about the same as one that cost $540. And then there are the incredibly high-markups - one Consumer Report’s assessment of a $3,000 mattress found that it cost about $300 to make (that’s a 900% markup! Mattress companies create pricey new models claiming innovation when they've merely swapped out or added unnecessary layers. In response to the mattress industry’s unfair pricing, we created Kloudes, the first company dedicated to perfecting your existing mattress by giving you the option to buy only the layers that actually matter.

Myth #2: The more layers a mattress has, the more comfortable it is


Mattress manufacturers use a lot of clever marketing gimmicks to get you to spend more money. The idea that the thicker a mattress, the better it is, is just one of many gimmicks they use. In reality, the top 3 inches of a mattress (the comfort layer), are really the only part that matters. The upper 3 inches determine your level of comfort; any layers underneath merely serve to support the comfort layer. Kloudes is the first company to specialize in the only part of the mattress that matters. Made with high-quality, ultra-plush materials, the Kloudes Topper can transform your aging or budget mattress into a brand new one.


Myth #3: A firm mattress is better for your back


Your spine is naturally curved, so the optimal sleeping position mimics that natural curvature as closely as possible. A surface that conforms to your body creates the least amount of pressure. Sleeping on an overly firm mattress results in aches and pains on pressure points which cause you to toss and turn throughout the night.

If your mattress is too firm, instead of replacing it, save yourself time and money with the Kloudes Topper. Kloudes can enhance or restore the comfort level of your current mattress for a fraction of the cost of buying a new mattress. The patent-pending Kloudes Topper features a specially designed Micro-Kloudes layer and a patented Air Foam layer. These two layers work together to gently conform to your body and relieve pressure points.

Myth #4: You have to replace your mattress every 7-10 years


The lifespan of a mattress varies widely based on a lot of factors. The most important factor that contributes to mattress lifespan is how well you take care of it. The Kloudes Topper is the perfect way to protect your investment and extend the life of your mattress. The Kloudes Topper adds a layer of protection because it puts less pressure on your mattress. In addition, Kloudes’ ventilated layers keep you cool and, as a result, stops sweat and perspiration from getting into your mattress. If your aging mattress is still structurally sound, Kloudes can make it last longer and revive it so it feels like new.
