Basics of Buying: Signs It's Time to Replace Your Mattress

Basics of Buying: Signs It's Time to Replace Your Mattress

We all know that a good night's sleep is essential for our physical and mental well-being. And that the foundation of a restful slumber lies in our mattresses. But we can sometimes forget that over years of use, even the best mattresses will begin to lose their support and comfort, affecting our sleep quality.


The age of your mattress is a crucial factor in determining when to replace it. 

As a mattress ages, its materials degrade, and it loses its ability to provide adequate support and comfort. An average, introductory level mattress that is used nightly should likely be replaced in 7 to 10 years. Higher quality mattresses can last longer, some well over a decade. 

Are you feeling your mattress age?

As mattresses age, they lose their ability to provide the necessary support and can lead to aches and pains. Indentations, sagging, lumps or if you can feel the springs or coils, these are clear indications that your mattress is past its prime. 

Even if you cannot see these issues, you might be feeling it.  If you find yourself tossing and turning throughout the night, struggling to find a comfortable position, and waking up not feeling rested, these are telltale signs that your mattress is no longer meeting your sleep needs. Upgrading to a new mattress with the right level of support and comfort can lead to more restful and uninterrupted sleep.

It’s not just the mattress, we change too!

Life changes, such as weight gain, weight loss, surgery, pregnancy, and all the other trials and tribulations life gives us, over the years this can affect your needs during sleep. If you've experienced significant changes in your life or body, a new mattress that accommodates your new needs can make a word of difference.

Investing in a new mattress is an investment in your overall well-being.

By replacing your old mattress with a quality, supportive bed that meets your sleep needs, you can improve your sleep, and also energy levels, and overall quality of life. Don't underestimate the power of a good night's sleep!
