Tempurpedic Mattresses are one of the best quality mattresses available on the market. They are not cheap but in my view, worth every cent. Most people looking to buy tempurpedic mattress do not have an idea of what to look for when buying. This article will attempt to address that problem.

There are two things you should be aware of before buying a tempurpedic mattress. They are foam density and ILD (Indention Load Deflection).

Memory Foam Density

Memory foam density is simply how much one cubic foot of memory foam weigh. Most tempurpedic mattress has a memory foam density of 5 lb. The problem with that is some people feel 5 lb foam density is too tough and firm, so other mattresses are introduced offering 4lb and even 3 lb density.

I would highly recommend buying a 4 lb density tempurpedic mattress as any lower than that is too soft and will not last very long. A 4 lb or 5 lb memory foam mattress can be expect to last up to 10 years and maybe even longer.

In fact, tempurpedic offers a 10 year warranty for all tempurpedic products. That goes to show how confident they are in their products.Recently, there has been word of even a 7 lb and 8 lb tempurpedic mattress though it is still experimental and not yet on the market.

Indentation Load Deflection

Indentation Load Deflection of ILD is an indication of the firmness of the memory foam product. In simple terms, it uses a measuring scale from 1 to 20. 1 being soft and 20 being firm. Most tempurpedic mattress has an ILD rating of 14 with other brands of mattresses in the ILD range of 8 to 14.

This is an important indication as to the tempurpedic mattress you are buying is genuine or fake. So make sure you ask the seller before buying a tempurpedic mattresses.

It is important you understand these 2 terms before you buy a tempurpedic mattress especially online where there are many sellers selling fake tempurpedic mattress.
