You know you need to get a new stove when yours suddenly stops working. Mattresses are sneakier when it comes to replacement. A mattress and box spring or foundation gradually wears down over time so that you don’t easily notice the changes.
It isn’t always obvious that a mattress has outlived its lifespan just by looking at it.
Default Life of Bed Mattress
How long your mattress lasts depends on how often it’s used and what level of quality it is, but in general, a mattress set that is seven years old has reached the end of the line and needs to be replaced. While this is a good rule of thumb, everyone’s body changes over time, and your need for comfort and support increases as you age. Your body may be ready for a new mattress before the seven-year mark, so listen to what it’s telling you. It’s a good idea to compare your mattress and foundation to newer models every few years to see if there is a set that feels better to you and offers features you may not have needed or looked for in the past. You can see some recent models by pressing the following links: Good life Mattress, Imperial Mattress, Deep Blu Mattress.
Test Your Mattress
Good sleep is so important for your health, productivity, and ability to feel your best. Check-in with your mattress regularly to find out if you need a replacement. You may not even be aware your mattress has gotten old and worn until you think about it.
Do you wake up with stiffness, numbness, aches, and pains?
Does your mattress show visible signs of overuse (it sags, has visible tearing, ripping, holes, staining, or damage)?
