Considering the fact that you spend a third of your life on your mattress, it is important to ensure that it remains in good condition.
If you wake up sore and irritable every morning or if there is a dip in the center of your mattress, these are symptoms that you should change your mattress. The durability of your mattress depends on its quality but it is safe to say that if over ten years have passed since you initially purchased it, the time for investing in a new one has come. The following are several other signs that you need to invest in a new mattress.
1. Your mattress is more than 8 years old. Most mattresses have a 10-20 year warranty. But the ones manufactured earlier are more prone to deterioration by the 8th year.
2. If you’re noticing that you’re waking up sore and getting constant body pains and ache after a night of sleep, it may be because your body no longer gets the right support from the mattress that has been slept on for many years. It is already worn out inside.
3. If you find indentions, dents and saggy areas in your mattress. The best mattresses must be body confirming and not the other way around. You don’t have to sleep on a bed that has dents, and live with those dents. It’s also quite unhealthy for your body.
