When Should You Change Your Mattress?

July 4, 2022 by The Sleep Company

The mattress greatly impacts our body, sleep, and health in both good and bad terms, so buying the right mattress becomes crucial. Thus, we all love to benefit from things in our life, and we tend to avoid anything that has a negative impact on us.

Just like every other good thing in the world, mattresses also come with expiry dates; therefore, it is necessary to know how long you can use your mattress and when to change it.

Why do we need to change our mattress?

Apart from the obvious reason that the lifespan of mattresses is over, other reasons cause us to change our mattress after a certain time.

Such as,

1. Sagging

Over time, mattresses start sagging as their coils weaken or the memory foam loses shape. Sagging becomes noticeable when your body weight, especially heavy ones, starts leaving its impression on the mattress. 

Many mattresses start sagging within the first five to six years of their life span. However, top mattress brands like the Sleep Company’s SmartGRID mattresses come with ten years of warranty. Its newly invented Grid technology prevents it from sagging under our body weight for a long time.

2. Back aches and body pains

A mattress should be comfortable and help you sleep without discomfort in joints and other body parts. If you wake up with acute pain in your neck, shoulders, or hips, your mattress may not be as comfortable or supportive as it was.

3. It Smells

We spend one-third of our days on the mattress, which causes it to absorb our body heat and perspiration, resulting in a foul odor after a few years. Mildew, molds, and fungi can also grow in the mattress, especially if you live in a humid climate, which is another reason your mattress stinks.

4. It makes noise

After some years, the mattresses which have coils start making noises as the coils within them weaken and become unsupportive.

5. You sleep better in other places

If you have difficulties sleeping on your usual mattress and have colds or joint pains while sleeping well at hotels or a friend’s house without any of these issues, it might indicate that your mattress is causing your sleep problems.

How to improve the lifespan of a mattress?

We spend a lot of money on mattresses, so we naturally expect them to last longer than they should.

As a result, here are some suggestions for extending the life of a mattress:

The points to be considered while buying new mattress

When buying a new mattress, pay attention to certain factors, like 

Nowadays, several top mattress brands are available on the market for you to choose from. Companies such as the sleep company provide a 100-day trial period before purchasing a mattress, which helps you save money by not purchasing the wrong mattress.
