7 Signs You Need a New Mattress

7 Signs You Need a New Mattress

You should be there for 8 hours every night; that’s a third of your life! A mattress matters to your overall health and well-being, so why do so many people neglect a good night’s sleep? Well, most people don’t know how to read the signs of a mattress that’s doing more harm than good. 

Here are 7 signs you may need a new mattress:
  1. It’s 8-10 years old - Consumer reports recommend a new mattress every 7 to 10 years. Shocked? Most people are. Many folks can’t remember when they bought their mattress! If you know it’s older than a decade, it’s time to start looking.
  2. You move all night - Constantly shifting position? If you can’t get comfy in bed, that’s a pretty sure sign you need a new mattress. Don’t let old springs push on sensitive pressure points. You need a quality mattress that evenly distributes weight.
  3. Squeaks and creeks - The ability of your mattress to provide support can be altered by what supports your mattress. Broken or worn out box springs can affect a mattress’s comfort, support, and shape. Squeaks and creeks can damage your mattress and make it wear out faster than normal. Without proper support, you may notice your mattress sagging in the center.
  4. The great sag - Speaking of sagging, if you notice yourself rolling towards the middle, it’s time for a new mattress. Sagging can occur as springs break down and lose resiliency. And get this: Sagging and impressions of as little as 1.5″ are linked to increased pain!
  5. Allergies - If you find that your allergies seem worse at night or first thing in the morning, it may be time for a new mattress. Dust mites are a huge cause of most allergies. Those little mites love an old mattress. Memory foam and waterbeds are a good way to keep dust mites at bay.
  6. You find yourself sleeping elsewhere - Constantly falling asleep on the sofa? Maybe it means you are more comfortable there than in bed. Notice that a hotel is more restful than your own bed? That’s a serious problem.
  7. Your back hurts - This is one of the most common reasons for replacing an old mattress. Old mattresses will gradually lose the ability to provide proper support. As the layers lose their compression and shape your body will no longer feel supported in the mattress. This typically manifests in forms of backaches and pains.

Any of this sound familiar? Then it may be time to replace that old mattress with a new more supportive one!
