How often you change your mattress will depend greatly on the type and quality of mattress you are using. The following points will help you determine if it’s time to make the upgrade.
Analyze your sleep
Invest in a new mattress if you consistently wake up feeling tired and have severe pain in the neck and the shoulders. A good mattress ought to be firm enough and give you good support, comfort and a night of peaceful sleep.
Mattress wear and tear
Take your time and remove your bed sheets, mattress pads, mattress protector and any layers that are between the mattresses. Assess the mattress – if it’s showing any signs of wear and tear or sagging in the middle where you sleep, then it’s time to buy a new mattress. Sagging in the middle means that the mattress is not able to provide good support.
You notice allergies
An older mattress tends to trap dust. This will wake up the allergies that you have at night. If sneezing and runny nose persist every morning, then it means your mattress is old and dusty, therefore needing to be changed.
You sleep better while away
If you notice you sleep more comfortably in other beds other than yours, then it’s a clear indication that your mattress is not doing you justice and should be changed immediately.
If you hear squeaking noises from your mattress during times of rest, then it’s a clear indication that you need to change the mattress. The squeaking is brought on by worn springs that can no longer provide adequate and supportive body weight distribution.
Your mattress is five or more years old
If your mattress is five years or older and you have noticed your bed rest is degrading or affecting your sleep, then it’s time to change the mattress. Investing in a quality mattress is investing in your future health.
