There are many questions about mattresses, because there are so many ways manufacturers make them. The key is to get the correct system to support your body comfortably!

Your answers will provide us with better understanding for the support system your body needs. It is important to support you entire body throughout the night, for less aches and pains when you wake up. Not too long ago, I read an article about how the Chinese people wanted to purchase only USA made mattresses, due to working in their factories and knowing what goes into the middle of the their mattresses. That was a wake up call! Our mattresses are all American made! It makes a difference! It allows you to sleep with peace of mind that you are not breathing in harmful substances throughout the night.


It allows you to know that you are helping support neighbors and communities right here in Michigan by purchasing a Serta mattress and they will stand behind their warranty, just how they have for the past 85 years!
