Congratulations to Verlo Mattress in Colorado!

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Oct 2, 2015 2:40:47 PM

As many of you know, Verlo has a national franchise system, with different stores across the country owned by local members of the community. Each Verlo franchise operates its own local factory and sells mattresses exclusively in their local mattress showrooms. Doing this ensures that our guests always have a local source for expert service, plus it helps us to reduce our carbon footprint - and no where is this more top of mind than in Colorado. In fact, our Colorado franchisee Dick Sumerfield has just been voted Best Green Products/Service of Boulder, and Best Mattress Store of Boulder.

2 Words for Dirty Mattress Owners: Mattress Protectors

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Apr 28, 2015 11:07:34 AM

 

Protect your mattress from dirt, stains and allergens associated with dust mites by using a mattress protector on your mattress.


Our last post was about spring cleaning and caring for your mattress, so I was especially interested when Dyson introduced their new handheld vacuum made specifically for cleaning dirty mattresses.

According to Dyson, the new Dyson v6 removes "dust mites and their allergenic feces" from your mattress. (Dust mite feces? Yuck!) Apparently, Dyson has an in-house microbiology lab where they breed dust mite cultures, and study dust mite behavior and the resulting allergens they produce. They've found that "powerful suction" is the most effective way to "reduce dust allergens in the mattress."

Now, don't get me wrong, we're all for clean mattresses, good hygiene and a healthy sleeping environment. And if this special mattress vacuum helps to provide that – great. But at $250 a pop? I have two words for dirty mattress owners: mattress protector.

A simple, washable mattress protector prevents your mattress from becoming a breeding ground for dust mites. It acts as a protective barrier so dust mites never even make it into your mattress (and neither does liquid.) For less than $70, you can purchase a queen-size mattress protector that will solve the dust mite problem.

And, save yourself from having to vacuum one more thing in your house.

Watch a World Record Being Set

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Nov 19, 2014 2:01:05 PM

Just in case you missed yesterday's post, Verlo Mattress became the Guinness World Recorder Holder for the Tallest Stack of Mattresses last Saturday, Nov.15, 2014. (Not that we're proud or anything!)

You can watch this time-lapsed video (compliments of the Greenfield NOW) that shows the Verlo team stacking 18 mattresses to achieve the new record-setting height of 16 feet, 5.25 inches. Verlo attempted this feat to mark the grand opening of our new flagship store, which will take mattress shopping to new heights.

After the event, all the mattresses were donated to two local charities, Pathfinders and the Sojourner Family Peace Center, so many more benefited from the day.

For A Successful School Year, Hit The Books – And The Hay

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Sep 4, 2014 5:02:02 PM

It’s that time of year again, the much-dreaded or highly-anticipated (depending on whether you’re the kid or the parent) back-to-school time when families transition from sleeping in on easy summer mornings to setting alarm clocks and dragging sleepy children out of bed to get to school on time.

Eliminate Mattress Arguments Without Compromising

Posted by Julie Tramonte on Jun 10, 2014 3:24:50 PM
Do you and your partner battle over the thermostat? Argue whether to watch a romantic comedy or an action movie? Struggle with the decision to get sausage or pepperoni?

If you’re like most couples, you’ve learned that compromise is the name of the game for a happy relationship. (That is, if you want to stay a couple.) Sometimes you get your way, other times you have to grin and bear it. But, what happens when you can’t agree on something important, such as a product that affects your productivity, health and mood on a daily basis? I’m talking about your mattress. Shouldn’t you be able to get your way, and sleep on the mattress that’s best for you? Is there a way to eliminate mattress arguments?
