There has been a boom in studies and research about the importance of sleep; so replacing your old mattress might be one of the best investments you make this year!
So, you are probably wondering, when should you actually change your mattress?
A quality sleep is extremely important for your health and it is important to choose a high quality mattress rather than just buying the cheapest available. If you have noticed some of the points below with your bed, you might want to consider investing in a new mattress.
6. You wake up during the night
A good mattress won’t wake you up during the night, instead, it will provide you with great comfort. The problem with a cheap mattress is that the materials used to manufacture the product are of much less quality than those used in a premium mattress. Once you start waking up during the night, you will have less energy in the morning. Think of a mattress like an investment, an investment for your health!
5. Your current mattress is more than 7 years old
It’s important to make sure that you change your mattress once every 7-8 years. If you get past this age, you will notice that your mattress will bring in more and more trouble than it’s worth. Old mattresses can cause more harm than good! Especially living in a tropical environment, old mattresses can be covered in mould, dust, dead skin follicles and microorganisms that cannot be seen with the naked eye. Remember, your focus has to be on replacing your mattress when you feel that it doesn’t serve you as well as it used to.
4.Your current mattress squeaks and creaks
Some mattresses will have springs that creak and squeak as you go to sleep. If that happens, then you have to figure out a way to eliminate the problem. Our mattresses are built with individual zoned springs, this means that when you are resting on the mattress, your weight is dispersed throughout each spring instead of all of the springs together. The best thing that you can do is to acquire a new mattress or even replace your bed if the squeaking may also come from your bed as well.
3.You wake up in pain from sore muscles and joints.
A good mattress will help you wake up relaxed and full of energy. If you wake up in pain, then it’s clear that your current mattress needs to be replaced. If that happens, don’t hesitate and replace it as fast as possible, as it’s extremely important to take care of your health the best way that you can. Many of us sleep for 6-8 hours every night so it is worth investing in a quality mattress!
2.Sagging and spring compression
As your mattress gets old, it will start sagging and the springs will become less firm. It’s apparent to the naked eye and it clearly shows that you have to replace it. This doesn’t mean that your mattress is bad, it just shows that it aged to the point where you need to get a new one if you want to sleep properly.
If you look at your bed from the side and you notice an area where you lay is lower than the rest of the bed, you might need to think about getting a new mattress!
1. You suddenly have allergies
Allergens can easily accumulate in your mattress as time goes by. Especially on the Gold Coast, there is a lot of moisture and pollen in the air which gets trapped in your mattress fabric. Small bugs and microscopic organisms can also live in your mattress. This is why you need to make sure that you deal with those allergies as fast as possible. It’s extremely important to eliminate those allergies as they can cause asthma and encourage bacteria to grow. Changing your mattress can help you sleep better and reduce the frequency of mould & bacteria related illnesses.
If you encounter any of these problems with your mattress, then you should consider heading online or in store to get a new one. People always try to go online to find the right mattress for them. But while there are lots of deals out there, you will also find low-quality mattresses, which is why you have to be very careful in regards to what you buy. If you have noticed some of the points above then you might want to consider upgrading your new mattress. Rest assured that purchasing a new mattress will be a valued investment and it will surely offer you a more comfortable and healthier nights rest.
