5 Signs You Should Get A New Mattress
Have you recently checked your mattress? You might want to do so right now. Most people use the warranty of their mattress as a guide to determine when it is time to replace it. People should understand that the comfort ingredients, on top of your spring core, wear out much sooner than the springs, and sagging or softening of the top layers is considered normal by the mattress industry. It doesn’t have to be that way.
How do I know if I need a new mattress?
Here are 5 signs to determine if you need a new mattress:
1. Suffering from bad dust allergies
If you find that allergies seem worse at night or first thing in the morning it may be an indication that it’s time for a new mattress.
Dust mites are one of the leading causes of allergens and they thrive in mattresses and bedding. Memory foam, latex and waterbeds are most resistant to dust mites. Our MattX™ Hybrid and MattX™ Dual Mattress are made with natural latex that deter dust mites and bed bugs alike.
2. Wake up with back aches and pains
Morning neck and back pain that gets better throughout the day is a sign that you need a new mattress.
Mattresses that are too old gradually lose the ability to provide proper support, and once the comfort zone has matted down you will experience pressure points when sleeping directly on the springs.
3. You feel tired when you wake up
It may be due to too much tossing and turning throughout the night. Your body is working overtime to find a comfortable sleeping position that does not exist.
4. You sleep better in hotels, at friends' houses, etc.
You should consider buying a new mattress if you find yourself going into another bedroom to sleep or preferring the couch to your bed. If you find that you sleep better in a hotel mattress while on vacation, the same applies to you. Your mattress should be comfortable and supportive. This will allow your body to relax and fully recover. It is common to struggle to sleep at night due to discomfort. However, studies show that simply replacing an old mattress can improve your sleep quality and quantity.
5. Your mattress is over 8 years old
If your mattress doesn't meet the conditions listed above, you can recall that how long you had used it. The age of the mattress is one of the first things to consider. Consumer Reports magazine recommends replacement every 7 to 10 years.
