When Is It Time For a New Mattress?
Your sleep surface can make all the difference in your quality of sleep, feeling rested, and even your overall health. Without a good quality support surface, your back, neck and joints can become strained and sore, resulting in poor sleep and a lack of energy. Replacing your mattress when it’s wearing out is the best way to ensure that your sleep surface is supportive and effective.
If you’re waking up in the mornings in pain or with aching joints, it may be time to replace your mattress. Tell-tale signs include back or neck pain, numbness, stiffness, and aches. If you suffer any of these symptoms, your mattress may be to blame.
Tossing and Turning
It’s impossible to get and stay asleep on a poor quality or worn out mattress. Pressure points, sagging, and a lack of support contribute to frequent waking and tossing and turning to try to get comfortable. The inability to relax makes it impossible to get a quality night’s sleep.
A Dented Mattress
If your mattress has developed a permanent “dent,” sag, or feels uneven, it’s time to replace your mattress. If your mattress is an innerspring model, you shouldn’t be able to feel the coils through the surface padding. Those are all indications it’s time for a replacement.
Allergy or Asthma Symptoms
Most of us get colds and flu during the winter months, but if you have allergies or asthma symptoms that get worse or are resistant to treatment, your mattress may be harboring an excess of dust, mites, and skin particles. Allergens tend to settle in the fabric crevices of the mattress. An allergy-proof mattress cover may reduce this problem, but it’s difficult to eliminate entirely. Replacing your mattress when it’s worn helps protect not only your back and joints, but your lungs as well.
