Whether you realize it or not, the quality of your mattress plays a significant role in your daily life. The better quality of mattress you have, the better quality of sleep you’ll get, leaving you well-rested and energized for the day. On the other hand, if you’re getting a poor night’s sleep from a poor-quality mattress, your days will be slow and miserable. Unfortunately, mattresses have an expiration date, and when they start to go bad, their quality—and your quality of sleep—starts to wane.
So, how can you tell when the time has come to lay your mattress to rest and replace it with a new one?
1) You wake up with neck and back pain.
The older and more used a mattress gets, the more its support system wears down. This inadequate support leads to more pressure on your body, causing aches and pains. If you wake up with a sore neck and/or back that improves throughout the day, your mattress is likely the culprit.
2) You wake up tired.
A good night’s sleep should leave you feeling refreshed and replenished. When you’re tossing and turning all night because your mattress is no longer comfortable or supportive, you can’t get the quality sleep you need to feel rested. Then, you’re left yawning and nodding off during the day.
3) Your allergies are acting up.
Over time, contaminants like hair, dust mites, sweat, and dead skin cells, settle in your mattress. As they accumulate, they can trigger allergy-like symptoms, such as coughing, sneezing, congestion, etc. Especially if you notice that these symptoms only happen when you’re in or near your mattress, it’s time for a replacement.
4) Your mattress’s shape has changed.
Deformities in your mattress’s shape (sagging, body indentations, lumps) signal that your mattress is breaking down and the material inside is shifting. This means you’re getting uneven and insufficient support, leading to poor quality sleep and the aforementioned aches, pains, and drowsy days.
5) You haven’t replaced your mattress in 8+ years.
Sleep and mattress experts recommend replacing your mattress every 7-10 years. If it’s been that long, or you can’t even remember when you bought your mattress, you’re due for a new one. You may not even notice that your quality of sleep has been affected until you make the switch and begin sleeping soundly again.
The mattress in your bedroom isn’t the only one that has a limited lifespan. You should also be looking for signs that it’s time to replace the mattress in your RV, boat, truck, or on your sofa bed, so you can get good sleep wherever you tuck in for the night. Luckily for you, Replacement Mattress has comfortable and supportive mattresses in all shapes and sizes to fit in any of those auxiliary spaces.
