How Often Should I Replace my Mattress?
We spend a full 1/3 of our lives in bed. Proper mattress care can mean a new mattress will last up to ten years on average. A foam or latex mattress may last longer, depending on the quality of the new mattress and the mattress care. If you’re suffering from back pain, allergy symptoms, frequently waking up in the night, tossing and turning, or discomfort, it may be time to replace your mattress.
You may be experiencing back pain if your mattress no longer supports your body properly during sleep. As a mattress ages, the springs and other structures may begin to compress and break down. Since the average adult spends 7-9 hours a day, a mattress sees a lot of hard use. Even the highest quality of mattress can’t last forever. It’s important to care for your mattress and replace it regularly to ensure your best night’s sleep.
Caring for your mattress means following a basic maintenance routine. Regularly flipping your mattress from one side to the other (if it’s a double-sided model) and rotating it to prevent “dents” or depressions in the surface will help extend the life of your mattress. Mattress care also involves regularly cleaning and airing your mattress. The better care you take of your mattress and the higher quality mattress you buy to begin with, the longer it will last.
