How do you sleep? Select Comfort beds and mold.

This is really just a public service announcement on my part after hearing a few horror stories about people buying Select Comfort beds and discovering terrible black mold growing inside their beds.

It seems that Select Comfort knows about the problem but they aren't notifying their buyers about it.

If you have one of these beds you might want to check it out.

Here's a link to one of the very few news stories about it: http://www.katu.com/news/problemsolver/16367616.html

You can also find a lot of consumer complaints if you Google "Select Comfort" and "mold".

Happy sleeping!

Oh wow, that looks pretty disgusting.

Our mattress is only a year old from a hotel supplier, so I hope it
will last.

Mr. B and I are in the market for a new bed which is how the Select Comfort thing came up. If someone knows a good non-moldy bed I'd love to hear about it.

These SC beds are supposed to be nice but they are expensive -- our friends with the moldy bed spent $3,000 for their set. Now they're sleeping in the guest room until SC comes through with the replacemnent.

Mo has allergy induced asthma so I take moldy stuff seriously. Your bed shouldn't make you sick.

No from Marriott, Chai. The beds are made by Jamison, an excellent
bed manufacturer. I love it!

Boomer, look at that little video from Jamison. I don't think these coils
will ever get moldy. http://www.jamisonbedding.com/crestcollection.php

I/we broke a bed.

It just went BANG And fell to pieces.

After recovering from the inital shock, we laughed and laughed and laughed.

That was a long time ago now.

Our bed is hand made, quite heavy and will hopefully last and last ...

The matresses are ... different on both sides, since we've different likings.

boom, I haven't looked at cj's video, but I agree with her.

I don't know if the marriott and sheraton both use jamisons, but I'm sure they are comparable.

I haven't slept at a marriott, but when I was at a sheraton, I got into bed after a stressful work day, and literally said, "oh my God" when I laid down. It was like I died and went to heaven. Feel asleep in an instant, and next thing you know, it was morning.

I'll bet if you go to a Marriott or Sheraton and ask them if you can lie down on one of there beds, they'd accomodate you. I know on the Sheraton website there's a link where you can purchase one of the beds. If I was in the market for one, it's what I'd do.

cj - I'm going on vacation in Sept, and we'll be staying at a marriott part of the time. I'll check their beds out. If Wally sleeps well in one, I think we might be getting a new bed for each other for Christmas.

I have a Tempur-Pedic Grand bed. I can't pick the damn thing up, it is so heavy. It is a struggle to put a sheet on it. But I must say, that it does give you a great night's sleep, and is wonderful for my back.

Well, Mrs Walter has a Tempur-Pedic mattress (and slat base), while I've just quite a normall Latex matress - like it better.

You'll sleep like a baby. Not all Marriotts have the same bed though (although they're all from Jamison). The ones who have more tourist traffic have
the most durable beds, so make sure to ask the clerk which beds they
have. I've got the memory foam (not latex) from Jamison.

The bedding at the Marriott is also very comfortable and purchasable,
a bit expensive for my taste though.

The Marriott Bed by Jamison Bedding
What distinguishes The Marriott Bed from its hotel chain competition is that instead of being an inner spring mattress it is instead, a foam mattress. Although the Marriott organization still utilizes up to four different beds on their various properties, the bed that has become known as The Marriott Bed within the hotel and bedding industries is a 9 inch foam mattress made of high density open cell poured polyurethane. (Boy! Is that ever a mouthful!). It replaces a similar 7" mattress that was in use from between 2000 - 2005.

Polyurethane is one of three different foams used in bed construction and in general is the least costly. The other two types being, visco-elastic (Tempurpedic) and natural latex (various brands).

While it responds to the contours of your body, it is less responsive to body heat and not as heat reflective. Most everyone has heard stories about people waking in a sweat on their Tempurpedic mattress. The truth is that some people experience this situation and some don't. But, in general open cell polyurethane exhibits this characteristic much less frequently if at all.

I've heard from several people that those memory foam matresses got really hot. Is that true? I can't sleep when I'm hot.

Those Jameson mattress look otherwise interesting though. Maybe I'll check into a hotel and get a first-hand experience!

Ours don't get hot - that's the last thing I want, but then, it's not latex,
and additionally they have these little air raster in them. The video
I had posted above shows how it is inside the mattress.
