3 Signs that Your Mattress is No Longer Doing its Job

Mattresses are not made to last forever. It may be hard to accept, especially if you have held on to the same mattress for over a decade, but it is something that you need to come to terms with. Mattresses generally have a lifespan ranging between 10-15 years, and once your mattress exceeds that time frame, the level of comfort and support it provides will start to decrease. If you have been holding on to a mattress that is well past its prime, it could end up affecting your sleep, and even your health. Read on to learn the three major warning signs that indicate it’s time to buy a new mattress.

1. Your Mattress Has Noticeable Bumps & Grooves 

Your mattress should always provide a smooth, consistent surface. Regularly flipping and rotating your mattress will help reduce the pressure your body places on your mattress, but after years and years of use, body impressions and indentations will start to gradually form. If you notice that parts of your mattress have uneven bumps and grooves, or that your mattress seems to sink in at certain spots, that is a clear indication that your mattress needs to go. An uneven mattress will not only fail to provide the support your body needs, but it can also cause pain and stiffness over time.  

2. Your Mattress is Harboring Allergens & Pests 

While many people clean their bedding on a regular basis, they may not realize that they need to regularly clean their mattress as well. Over time, your mattress accumulates dead skin cells and sweat, and without cleaning your mattress on a consistent basis, you could end up with mold growth or a dust mite infestation. Both things can wreak havoc on your allergies, making it nearly impossible to get a good night’s sleep. If you notice that your allergy symptoms always seem to increase around bedtime, then your mattress is most likely the culprit, and it is time to get a new one.

3. Your Mattress is Causing You Pain 

Do you wake up each day with new aches and pains? Do you feel stiff and uncomfortable when you get out of bed most mornings? Chances are, it’s not you, it’s your mattress. As your mattress ages, memory foam may wear down and mattress springs may break. The more worn out your mattress is, the more discomfort it will cause. The moment you notice your mattress is causing you pain and discomfort, that is the time to get a new one.

Start the New Year with a Clean & Healthy Mattress!

2018 is officially here, and it’s time to make the most of the new year. With every new year comes a list of resolutions and positive plans for the months ahead. While most new year resolutions include things like exercise goals and diet plans, have you ever thought about adding mattress care to the list as well? If you take just a little bit of time this month to do some mattress maintenance, you can look forward to a clean, comfortable, and healthy sleep environment for the rest of the year. Follow our simple tips and start your year off right!

Give Your Mattress a Deep Cleaning

Wouldn’t you like to start the new year with a fresh and clean mattress? This year, go the extra step beyond laundering your linens, and give your mattress some extra love and care. Take some time to vacuum your mattress to remove any dust or debris. Notice any stains on your mattress surface? Vinegar or peroxide can both work wonders when it comes to stain removal. Is your mattress not smelling as fresh as it used to? Sprinkle some baking soda on your mattress and let it sit for a few hours. After you vacuum up the baking soda, your mattress will smell as fresh as a daisy!

Purchase a Quality Mattress Protector

Once you have your mattress looking and feeling fresh and clean, purchase a mattress protector to help keep it that way. Our mattress protectors will shield your mattress from dust and pesky allergens, helping to prevent dust mite infestations and allergy flare-ups. Our mattress protectors are also made from waterproof, breathable fabrics that will wick away moisture while you sleep and protect your mattress from any spills or accidents. Mattress protectors offer an easy and inexpensive way to guard your mattress all year long.

Replace a Mattress That is Past Its Prime

Though it may be hard to hear, sometimes you need to let go of your mattress. At the start of this new year, it is important to consider if your current mattress is providing all the comfort and support that your body needs. If your mattress shows dents and impressions or is beginning to cause your body more pain than relief, then now is the perfect time to make a change. At Mattress & More, we have an extensive selection of high quality mattresses for sale that will completely transform your quality of sleep. Our mattresses are also exceptionally affordable, which means that you can purchase a new one and still keep your budget right on track for the new year.
