How Long Does It Take For The Smell To Go Away?

Posted by Alexis Perry on

If you're a college student looking for a comfortable and quick upgrade to your dorm bedding, you may have considered a new memory foam mattress topper. Like many new products, including cars and appliances, these toppers can initially emit an unusual smell due to off-gassing. This process involves the emission of gases from the breakdown of "volatile organic compounds" (VOCs) in the foam and adhesives. Although this might sound alarming, it's a normal and harmless phenomenon. Shortly after removing the plastic covering, you'll notice a slight odor, but it dissipates quickly and is no cause for concern.

Our company specializes in high-quality mattress toppers, tailored specifically for college students. We've delivered thousands of toppers directly to dorm rooms, free of charge, and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. You can start enjoying your topper just 4-5 hours after unwrapping it, allowing it a little time to expand and breathe.

One of the advantages of our toppers is the minimal off-gassing odor compared to other products on the market. Many of our clients report no detectable smell at all, which is perfect for the busy college lifestyle. There's no need to air out your room for days; you can enjoy our toppers from the very first night.

The foam in our mattress toppers is CertiPUR-US® certified, meaning it's made without harmful chemicals like ozone depleters, formaldehyde, mercury, lead, and other heavy metals. The VOC emissions are incredibly low, less than 0.5 parts per million, ensuring a safe indoor environment. These toppers provide excellent support for all body types and are designed to help you get a restful night's sleep, leaving you refreshed and ready to tackle your college schedule.

Join the community of students who have chosen our advanced and comfortable toppers for a better sleep experience in college. Your body and your grades will thank you!
