Is your mattress getting old? Does it make weird noises while you turn? Do you feel its insides? Are you waking up tired?
If the answer to any of these questions is yes, this might be the sign that you need a new mattress. You must have heard that it is good to change your mattress every 5 to 7 years. Have you ever wondered why?
It wears out
As every item that we use repeatedly, a mattress also can wear out over time. If we sleep on it every day, it will slowly sink. We can get it dirty or forget to flip it every once in a while. If you are a kicker and a turner at night, you move a lot and all of these things contribute to the fact that your mattress just gives up.
Worn out foam
It also doesn’t matter what the mattress foam is made of; no matter how hard you like your bed, the foam will “get lost” with time and you will be left with nothing but springs and a hard sunken mattress.
Sleeping on a worn out mattress is not a good night rest, especially if you have one of those that have springs in them. Feeling those in the middle of the night is not pleasant.
Just looking at it
Have you ever taken a close look of your mattress while changing the sheets? Does it still look as good as it did when you bought it? Or does it look dirty, dusty and old? It doesn’t matter if you can’t see all of these things with the sheets on. Through the years, your mattress is giving you signals that it would be a good time to change it.
Do the bed bugs bite?
Have you ever thought about the things your mattress “gets” from you at night: your dry skin, germs because we were too lazy to shower that one night. How about the bacteria of all the times we were sick? If not for anything else, you should change your mattress because of your hygiene and well being.
