Can you imagine the number of hours you have logged in your bed? Now, ask yourself, when is the last time you bought a new mattress? if you can’t remember, let’s talk!
Your mattress will wear down gradually over time, so while your mattress may still feel comfortable – like your favorite pair of old worn in shoes -- it may have lost the ability to fully support you and give you the great night’s sleep you deserve.
Here are a few signs to help you know when it’s time for a new mattress.
Do you regularly wake up tired and achy? Do You tend to sleep better away from home? Does your mattress feel saggy or lumpy? If you can nod your head to even one of these, it might be time for a new mattress. The Better Sleep Council recommends replacing your mattress every seven years or so, depending on comfort and support. The life of a mattress varies, it depends on how you take care of it, how you sleep and how often you rotate it.
Aside from comfort and sleep quality, cleanliness is another big reason to replace your mattress. Can you believe that your mattress could be giving you headaches, a runny nose, itchy skin and puffy eyes? Yep! Microscopic dust mites building up in your mattress over time can be a hazard to your health according to the CDC.
