All mattresses can be divided into two main groups – spring and springless. Of course, today you can choose more exotic models. For example, water or inflatable mattress (often considered to Springless type). Only inflatable mattresses can be used for guests who stayed overnight.   Water mattresses is too complicated to use and not comfortable enough. That’s why most people still prefer to buy a spring or springless mattresses. Try to understand the advantages and disadvantages of each of these types.

Spring mattresses

It is said that the more springs are in the mattress, the better its orthopedic effect. Indeed, many doctors advise their patients to sleep on the spring mattresses. This explains the fact that even after so many years this type is in demand.

Each spring is packed in a separate bag that’s why mattresses with independent spring block don’t creak.
