Do You Need A New Mattress
Do you need a new mattress?
With most household items it is obvious when a replacement is needed. But recognising the signs that a new mattress is needed is not always obvious. The problem is you’re your mattress can still feel comfortable long after it has lost its ability to provide your body with the adequate support and comfort it needs.
Some signs your mattress has lost it's support -
- You wake up with stiffness, numbness, or aches
- You get a better night's sleep anywhere but in bed (like a hotel, the couch, at a family members)
- Your mattress shows visible signs of wear (it's dipping, has lumps, the interior is exposed, etc.)
- Your mattress is more than 7 years old
How long a mattress lasts depends on several factors such as frequency of use and quality of the original set, a mattress set that was used for 5-7 years may no longer give the best comfort and support. Remember that people's bodies change over time and the need for good comfort and support only increases with age. Therefore, it is a good idea to compare the mattress and foundation you are sleeping on now with new models when you first start having doubts.
According to the Sleep Council , your mattress lifespan varies according to the type of bed and the amount of usage but, as a general rule, if you wake up with aches and pains which disappear over the course of the day, you are not sleeping as well as you did a year ago or the mattress shows signs of wear, it is probably time to change your bed.
A good factor to consider when replacing your existing mattress is the warranty or guarantee offered on your current mattress. This is a good indicator for determining the length of time you should use your mattress before replacement.
