Many Components to a Good Night Sleep

Certainly a proper mattress that gives good support and that is comfortable is critical to getting a good night’s sleep. Certainly you need the proper pillow and don’t forget comfortable sheets and not too heavy of a blanket. Some people can get too hot or cold and it’s strictly a matter of kicking the blanket off, just keeping a sheet on you and making sure your room temperature is around 65 degrees.

You lie down on that bed and then your mind starts going like crazy. Well you know what? Get back out of bed, take a few minutes, jot down all your thoughts on a piece of paper, empty your mind, and you’re going to get a much better night’s sleep when you lie back down because you don’t have to worry about all the things that you jotted down earlier.

Rock Bottom Prices Every Day

Hi, this is Ron from Jonathan Stevens Mattress Company. We’ve been in business for over 68 years now, and we’ve done that by offering a good value on a mattress and making a top quality mattress that’s comfortable.

We don’t play mattress pricing games. We don’t say, “Here’s your mattress. Here’s a free pillow. Here’s a free TV, and here’s free financing.” But it’s a Free TV!

We worked it out the other day with one of our competitors, and if you buy a Jonathan Stevens mattress, buy the pillows from a Jonathan Stevens store, and buy that new TV from your local Best Buy, you are going to get a better value and spend less money overall. So don’t be misled by everything that’s free.

Nobody gives stuff away for free. They have to cover the cost or we wouldn’t be in business that long. We’d rather give you the rock bottom, best value in mattresses in West Michigan, and that’s what we do.

Mattress Sales

Hi! I am Ron from Jonathan Stevens Mattress Co. and I have a question for you.

When is a mattress sale not really a sale?

Well, when they fake that 50% off.

Mattress stores know that they have to get let’s say $500 for a mattress. If you want to save 50% off, they are going to tell you it was a $1,000 mattress at 50% off for $500.

At Jonathan Stevens Mattress Co. we don’t play that game. When you come in here we’re perfectly honest with you. There’s the $500 mattress. That’s what we need to get for it. We don’t mark it up fictitiously so you can think of greater savings.

You might even do a test. When another mattress store says they’re selling mattresses at 50% off, go in and look at that mattress you’re interested in and see the rock bottom price. Wait until they say they’re advertised for 70% off, and go look at that mattress and see the rock bottom price. You’ll be surprised. The bottom price didn’t change. It’s $500 all along.

Stop in at Jonathan Stevens Mattress Co. where we just show you the best mattress prices, where we have the best value and the most comfortable mattresses around.

Mattress Protection - why it's important for your mattress and your health

Hi! This is Ron from Jonathan Stevens Mattress Company. Sometimes you don’t realize it but when you get that brand-new mattress at home, you need to protect the mattress also. There are two types of pads that you can use.

- One is the old-fashioned mattress pad

- the other is the new mattress protector

Your mattress pad is kind of soft and plush. It might change the comfort of your mattress, so you’re going to want to watch for that. Also, your mattress pad may not be fully absorbent, so if you spill something on the mattress it could go down into your mattress.

A mattress protector on the other hand is made to really protect your mattress. This is what we recommend if you spill something on your mattress protector that it’s guaranteed not to affect your mattress. A good quality mattress protector is also going to keep it in a much more sanitary condition.

Make sure you get a mattress protector that you can wash in hot water to kill all the bacteria. Put it back on your mattress and do that once a month. That’ll help your mattress stay fresh, clean, and last a lot longer.

What type of pillows and sheets do I need to sleep well?

Hi! I am Ron from Jonathan Stevens Mattress Company. We know we want you to take the right amount of time in the showroom to get the most comfortable mattress that’s right for you. Then you get home. You’re looking forward to it, and that first night you go to bed, you wake up, and that wasn’t very comfortable. Well there could be a couple of reasons for that. One is that your body was used to that old mattress. Now you have a brand-new mattress that’s very supportive, and your body needs time to get used that new mattress and the mattress has to learn how to conform to your body also. The other reason that your mattress may not be comfortable is that there is more to a good night’s sleep than just a comfortable mattress. You need the right comfortable sheet. You need the proper pillow, and you need the proper mattress protector. If you get a brand-new mattress that’s comfortable and your sheets are old and raggedy and your body doesn’t feel good on them, that can affect your overall comfort. If you don’t have the proper pillow, that can affect your overall comfort.

Latex Mattress Foam Makes for a Better Nights Sleep

Monday, April 29, 2013

We were in our showroom. Now we’re back in our factory. It takes more than just a good looking cover to make a great mattress. We talked about the quality back then, now we’re here to show you how do you get the right comfort level? Well we get the comfort level from the different varieties of foam we use. We stay with real good qualities, but we can go from soft to very firm foams. For example, the one behind me is latex. Latex has a nice, plush cushion feel, and when you lie down on it, it really wraps around you and supports you. It’s very, very comfortable.

Now you can see I just assume not get up if I didn’t have to, but I will so that we can put another type of foam here, and you can see the difference between the nice, soft cushioning and firm cushioning yet staying with top quality.

Gel Foam Leads to a More Comfortable Mattress

We were in our showroom talking about the quality. Now we’re in the factory, and we can actually show you the quality that we have here. Behind me is our new cool gel foam which is a relatively recent discover, and it makes a very, very comfortable mattress. It gives you the support that you need, a little bit firmer feel, yet it lets you sink in and really relax and enjoy yourself.

Environmentally Conscious

The adhesive that we use is a water-based adhesive, so the advantage of that is it’s very environment-friendly. It’s a very simple product, and it doesn’t have a very strong odor. It has virtually no odor, so when you get the mattress in your house, you don’t have this chemical smell, it’s very environment-friendly, really great product as well, and it’s also one of the strongest glues on the market; absolutely very strong adhesive. It’s almost an instant tack when he puts it down there, but yet has the flexibility of being able to peel it away once it’s still is set. So, great all-around product.
