We have a Beautyrest Classic Rock Island Pillowtop mattress. We like it but have noticed a strange pungent odor emitting from it. Has anybody else had that experience with this mattress?

What your smelling is the normal "New mattress smell" this usually dissipates after a few weeks. People with "super sniffers" or just a really good sense of smell can sometimes smell this for the mattresses first few months. Try just putting a fan next to your mattress and open a window airing it out. If its still there after a month or so and its still really bothering you contact the store.

What you may be smelling is the vapors of the chemicals leaching out of your mattress. You can find a list of other people who have experienced this with their urethane mattresses here

Joyce is right. When polyurethane foam isn't cured properly when it's made, the chemicals can get trapped in the cells of the foam. When you use the mattress, more cells break open and the chemical gasses are released. Under these circumstances, it could take a very long time for the smell to go away.

Call your retailer and have it exchanged. Have them order one from the factory, as opposed to taking one from stock. Improperly cured poly foam affects an entire roll of foam, which is extremely large. Many mattresses will be affected by one roll. Anything from stock is more than likely from the same batch.

I have had this mattress for several years and can't even sleep on it. Buying a new one. Biggest waste of money and its gross.

The so called smell could be due the "new mattress smell" normally disappear after a few weeks usage. There is nothing unusual in it. It is recommended to keep open your window and run the fan for some time. If the mattress is allowed to have more fresh air then you can get rid off the sickening smell.

I have had a BeautyRest Vanderbilt collection mattress for 10 years and it still smells terrible. I have just had to live with it, until now. Have ordered an organic mattress that I hope will not be like this!
