Buying a new mattress can greatly improve your health and sleep, and help you to feel refreshed. If you’ve ever slept on a terrible mattress you’ll know how badly it can influence your sleep, however often we don’t notice our mattresses becoming worn out over the years. A Tempur mattress will last for years, and could change how you sleep forever.
Here are some signs you need a new mattress:
You wake up sore
If you’re continually waking up stiff and sore you may find that while your mattress is comfortable, it’s not providing enough support. Often this will happen if you’ve purchased a mattress which is too soft to begin with, as it will become less supportive over the years.
You constantly feel tired
If you’re waking up and still feeling tired, it could be because your mattress is sagging or causing pressure points. If you’re not fully relaxing and falling into a rejuvenating sleep you’ll wake up feeling like you haven’t even been to sleep.
You’re tossing and turning
If you find your self tossing and turning all night it may be because you simply can’t find a comfortable position on your mattress. You can try to solve this by regularly flipping your mattress, but once it has begun to sag you need to buy a new mattress.
There’s an impression of where you sleep
If you can see an impression of where you’ve slept, this is a huge sign that there is so much shifting and sagging that the mattress is pretty much dead.
If you have allergies
Often if you’re using a really old mattress you may be breathing in dust, which could be making your allergies worse. If you feel like your allergies are getting worse it could be time to look at how long you’ve had your mattress for, especially if they seem to just be morning allergies. Bedding and mattresses are full of dust mites after a few years, so it’s crucial to replace them regularly and keep your family healthy.
It’s more than 5-7 years old
Depending on the quality of your mattress, you can expect it to last from 5-7 years. If you’ve been using it for longer than this you may notice that it’s past its warranty, which is a good sign that it needs to be replaced.
You sleep better in other places
If you stay at a friends house or a hotel and sleep better than you ever have, it’s time to take a second look at the mattress you have at home. Write down what it is you like about the new mattress so you’ll know what you’re looking for when you go shopping.
You’re moving house
If you’re planning to move, and you’ve had your mattress for a few years, now could be the perfect time to replace it. Mattresses are a pain to move, and you’re likely to know someone who needs a new mattress. However if it’s really old it’s best to send it to be recycled.
