Just bought a latex bed last week and decided to open up the cover to see what the inside (latex) looks like. I was surprised to see some rips and holes on one side of the mattress. The holes on the side, in the top and middle layer, were obviously already there, and one of the large rips was surely there as well. I say that because it looks and feels like the rip was glued back together. However, I’m afraid how long that will actually last considering the rip is on the top layer and continue down the side. It’s right where I roll out of bed so I imagine if I do that enough times the repair will come apart. I’m afraid the rip will start to grow as well, kind of like how a crack in your windshield slowly spreads.
Should I be concerned about the pre-existing holes and rips? BTW, I’ve only looked at one side of the mattress. I didn’t take the whole cover off.
