They say people spend one-third of their lives either sleeping or trying to get to sleep. Because of that, it’s only right that you make sure that your mattress stays comfortable and safe to sleep on. To help you with that, here are the signs that’ll let you know when to change the mattress.
Your mattress is 8 years or older
It’s ideal to replace your mattress every 7 to 8 years. Even though your mattress comes with a 20-year warranty, it shouldn’t be your basis for replacement. Such warranty is meant to cover workmanship and certain parts of your mattress and not its overall comfort.
You feel tired after waking up
If you find yourself not feeling well rested after waking up, it can be a sign that you didn’t really get a good night sleep. You were probably tossing and turning the entire night, trying to find a really good and comfortable position.
Your spring mattress squeaks
Old mattresses tend to lose their support overtime. If you own a spring mattress, one of the signs is squeaking, particularly when you change position or move around.
You’re experiencing bad dust allergies
If you wake up with itchy eyes and nose in the morning or if you notice your existing allergy gets worse after waking up, it’s a good sign that you need a new mattress. You might not realize it but dust mites can easily accumulate in your mattress. They are considered to be one of the main causes of allergies.
