Of all the furniture in my home, I love my bed the most.
It’smy refuge, especially on a bad day: I escape there to hide.
On a tired day, I just drop into it and zoom off to dream land.
On a good day, I make my victory-broadcasting phone calls seated thereon.
Now, know this: the mattress you sport on the frame can make or mar your ‘’crashing’’ experience.
Ever heard of the air mattress, a.k.a. the air bed? Try it!
It is made of PVC (Polyvinyl Chloride) and is inflatable. In a deflated state, it can be folded or rolled up.
The air mattress’s use are diverse, viz:
1. It is AN ESSENTIAL (WATER) TOY for children. This is used as ‘’floater’’ at the beach or the swimming pool; inflated, children can recline on it and float on top of water. It is usually not made as strong as its counterpart used in the home.
2. SLEEPING is another major use of the air mattress. It can be used at home and outdoors. At home, they can be used temporarily: inflated for guests and deflated when they leave. The permanent ones are used in the bedrooms in homes.
The mattress for the outdoors are usually smaller in sizes, lightweight and made with less materials. These ones are easily inflatable and can be folded or rolled up in their deflated states and used for outdoor camping sessions.
1. For starters, it does well forvariety in the home. Instead of the water bed or foam mattresses all the time, the option of a novel sleeping device is quite exciting and can be taken up.
2. Health.Orthopaedics recommend the use of air mattresses to ameliorate back pains, as its firmness can be adjusted to suit patients’ conditions.
This mattress is unsafe for children, especially if they are below 8 months, as it is soft and can suffocate them. Also, the plasticizers in the PVC used in makingthe mattresses have been discovered to be harmful to the human hormonal system.
