When it comes to mattresses, consumers want a healthy and toxin-free spot to rest their weary heads and bodies each night. At Sherwood Bedding, we guarantee that our quality mattresses are not only comfortable but also naturally safe.

Mattress Safety in Your Bedroom

By utilizing the bedding industry’s only natural flame retardant materials, Sherwood Bedding mattresses are compliant with over 17 international flammability standards. This extra level of protection provides peace of mind for your family without introducing toxic chemicals into the environment or your home.

Since 2007, all mattresses – including Sherwood Bedding mattresses – have been required by the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC) to be treated with flame retardant materials. These materials are intended to reduce the risks of death, personal injury and property damage associated with fires that result from the ignition of mattresses. If a fire ever occurs, our goal is to buy you and your family more time to escape before the fire gets out of control. According to CPSC, many mattress fires are caused by children playing with open flames, including candles, lighters, and matches, or when candles are left unattended. Be sure to keep your sleep space safe at all times.

Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC)

Follow these CPSC fire safety tips:

  • Avoid smoking while in bed
  • Don’t allow kids to play with candles, lighters, or smoking materials
  • Never fall asleep while a candle is burning
  • Extinguish candles before you leave the room
  • Test and ensure the functionality of your working smoke alarms on each level of your home and in every bedroom
  • In the case of a fire, call 911 from a safe place
