A good mattress is key to having a good sleep. As your mattress gets older, it is inevitable that it will suffer from wear and tear.
However, it can be hard to determine the exact moment for replacement because we gradually get used to the mattress.
So here are some signs which may signal that it is time for a new one!
Is your mattress more than 8 years old?
If so, there is a high chance that is it time for a change. Most mattresses can only be kept in the optimal condition for around 8 years. After that, it starts to degrade at a much faster pace. To make sure your mattress is in optimal shape, changing it every 8 years is recommended. If your mattress is cheaper, you may have to replace it after 3 to 5 years.
Does your mattress have a dent or sag?
Once these physical changes in the structure of the mattress appear, it is a strong signal that it should be replaced. The sagginess will result in the mattress providing insufficient and incorrect support to your body while you sleep. Your sleep quality will drop. It is time to say goodbye to the old and hello to a new mattress.
Do you feel a difference in your sleep quality as your mattress grows older?
If the answer is yes, it could mean that the layers in the mattress have become thinner. The comfort layer (eg. pillowtop) of your bed will degrade much faster because it comes into direct contact with your body weight. If it feels less comfortable and affects your night’s rest, considers changing up your mattress.
Do you wake up every morning with a sore and aching body?
Sometimes, the type and firmness of your mattress may just not suit you. It could be too firm or too soft. Regardless of your mattress age, getting a new one is the only solution to sleep well.
Are your allergies or asthma getting worse?
An old and dirty mattress could be the cause. A mattress is the favorite hiding place for dust mites and allergens, especially over a long period. To counteract this problem, frequent vacuuming is helpful. However, if your mattress is too old, the best solution is a new one.
Does your mattress squeak and creak?
That could be a sign that the springs in your mattress are spoilt. Those springs are important in providing the right foundation for optimal support of your spine. You should consider replacing a squeaking mattress to get better support.
