How many mattresses have certifications? 

Certifications give you an idea of what standard the mattress is made. If it passes eco-friendly and other tests, like to determine if the mattress has any nasty chemicals or metals in construction.

In our opinion, they are one of the key things to look out for when purchasing a mattress. You tend to find most online mattresses brands are of a high standard and have certifications. The more budget friendly options, will cut corners and not have anything. 

But let's jump in and see how many mattress are certified.

Among more than 200 mattress brands, 43.56% have Oeko-Tex certification and 80.69% have CertiPur certifications.
With only 1.49% not having a Oeko-Tex, CertiPur, or an equivalent certification.

There are other popular certifications like Global Organic Textile Standard (GOTS), and Global Organic Latex Standard (GOLS) that were also taken into account.

What’s the average trial period of a mattress?

There is a wide range of trial periods for mattresses in the United States with some not having any to others offering 30 days or even a whole year. 

The average sleep trial period of a mattress in a box is 150.22 nights.
