Have you ever checked the mattress? Now is a good time for you to check your mattress.
People often use their mattress warranty to help them determine when it is time to replace it. The mattress industry considers normal wear the sagging of or softening of the top layers. This is because the comfort elements, which are on top of your spring core wear out much faster than the springs. This doesn’t have be the case.
These are 9 signs that you may need a new mattress.
1 Your mattress is more than 8 years old
It is important to check the age of your mattress before you buy. Many people forget when they purchased their last mattress. If you don’t have the time or skills to keep track of your records, write the date on the label. Consumer Reports recommends replacing your mattress every 7-10 years. Many people may not be aware of this fact if they have bought a mattress with a warranty of 20 years. It is important to understand that the warranty only covers certain parts (springs and workmanship) and does not cover the mattress’s comfort.
2 You don’t feel rested after you wake
You should feel refreshed and rested after a good night of sleep. If you feel tired or drowsy throughout the day, and you don’t have any other sleep disorders such as sleep apnea, it could be because you are tossing around all night. Your body is trying to find a comfortable position for you to sleep in.
3 You wake up feeling achy and unable to move
Do you wake up tired and stiff every morning? You may need a new mattress. Old mattresses can gradually lose their support. Once the comfort zone has sunk, you’ll feel pressure points if you sleep directly on the springs. Your mid-section, which is the most heavy part of your body, will begin to sag into your mattress as the comfort layers lose compression.
This can cause significant pain in your neck, shoulders, and back. Also, you will feel the pressure points and have to turn your head all night. A rising neck or back pain that persists throughout the day could indicate that your mattress is not the right firmness for you.
4 Other places feel more comfortable
A good indicator that you should buy a new mattress is when you are finding yourself in another bedroom or preferring the couch to your bed. The same applies if you notice that you sleep better on a hotel bed when you travel. The mattress should be supportive and comfortable. Your body should feel relaxed and able to recover from the pain. It is common to struggle to fall asleep at night due to discomfort. Studies show that you can increase the quality and quantity your sleep by simply replacing your mattress.
5 Your spring mattress creaks
Your mattress’s support structure can greatly impact the ability of your mattress provide support. You may feel that your mattress is in good condition, but something is not right. Mattresses’ comfort, support, shape, and support can be affected by worn or broken box springs. A frame without a support center can cause a mattress to sag at the centre.
6 You have a visible, noticeable sag
You may feel pain in your back, joints, or muscles if you notice any signs of sagging. Sagging is caused by springs losing their resilience. Impressions are caused when the polyester fiber, foam, and felt become compressed over a short time. According to back experts, sagging and impressions less than 1.5 inches deep are associated with increased pain. A mattresses that show sagging at this level or more should be replaced before you start to plant new flowers or open your pool, if you have one.
7 You can lay down on the mattress
You may feel as though you are sinking into your mattress. This is likely due to softening in the memory foam or full-foam mattress’s core. A higher resiliency core like Ric Mattress will retain its shape and firmness for a longer time than traditional polyurethane foam. This level of wear can have a significant impact on how you sleep and how you feel throughout the day.
8 You have bad dust allergies
It may indicate that your allergies are getting worse at night or early in the morning. Dust mites are a major cause of allergies and thrive in bedding and mattresses. Dust mites are resistant to memory foam, latex, and waterbeds. Our SmartA iFoam contains silver ions which deter bed bugs and dust mites alike. Dust mites are attracted to the cotton felt layer found in spring mattresses. This is because they love to hibernate. Dust mites can be reduced by using a mattress cover that is dust mite-resistant and washing your pillows and bedding frequently.
9 You have noticed a significant weight loss
People can gain or lose weight throughout a mattress’s lifetime. You might experience this if you are undergoing surgery, have an accident, go on a diet, or get older. If your weight has changed, even if the mattress is still in good condition, it may not be the right choice. A mattress topper can be used to temporarily fix the problem of pressure points or firmness. A topper won’t help if your mattress is too soft or lacking support.
