When to Replace Your Mattress
How often should mattresses be replaced?
Mattresses wear out on different timetables. This is due to numerous factors such as how the mattress was used (guest bed, master bed, doubled as a trampoline for the kids), whether it was cared for properly, and the quality of the mattress itself. Other important considerations are how personal comfort levels or your lifestyle and body may have changed over the years.
We encourage you to think about these things and ask yourself the following questions:
- Are you sleeping better or worse than you did a year ago?
- Are you waking up feeling stiff and sore?
- Does your mattress have visible signs of wear and tear?
- Would a new mattress improve your sleep?
Your body should tell you when it’s time for a new mattress – if the answer is “yes” to any of these questions, then it’s time to consider purchasing a new mattress. If you regularly wake up feeling stiff and sore or if you aren’t sleeping as well as you did a year ago, it may be time to replace what you’re sleeping on.
At least twice a year, check for visible signs of wear and tear and ask yourself if you’re sleeping better or worse than you did a year ago and if a new mattress might improve your sleep. This regular sleep check-up will help ensure your mattress is still doing its job.
