We just bought a new Sealy Posturepedic Mattress.
It’s producing a strong chemical smell that I’ve just discovered is called “off-gassing.”
Unfortunately, we didn’t do the research prior to purchase to learn about this.
In reading a response to another person’s Sealy mattress question, it sounds like they are dangerous to sleep on due to the foam and vinyl materials.
Is it safe to sleep on this mattress if we allow a period of time for gasses to decrease and run an air purifier with a Hepa filter to help, or should we send it back for something safer?
If you think we should return it, could you please provide a few recommendations for us to explore?
To recommend, you should know that I have disc issues in my back and neck.
Thank you for your help; it’s deeply appreciated.
Since finding my blog and having read my previous responses, there should be no question in your mind as to whether or not you should return that mattress.
You should be outraged that a factory would make, and that a store would sell, a mattress that poisons the air you and yours are breathing.
Even without the off-gassing of toxic, carcinogenic chemicals, you bought the wrong mattress for anyone with disc-related back issues.
No mattress upholstered with memory foam will provide the support necessary to relieve pain caused by disc-related back problems.

The upholstery is natural Talalay Latex and plant based polyurethane foams.
