How Often Should You Change Your Mattress?
I have always wondered about when it would be the right time to change my mattress. If you have a good mattress from a reputable brand like Tempurpedic, the mattress can last for years. Although, the mattress situation can get pretty disgusting.
Sometimes you might find roaches, bed bugs, hair, stains, and cotton balls. You might also find lots of dirt and dust. I would say that the Tempurpedic mattress is by far the best for your back. It adjusts to you and is not too hard or too soft. I have had mine for about eight years and now it is beginning to sag and fall apart. I am about to purchase a new one.
So how often should you change your mattress? I would say that a sure sign of having to do so is when you feel that the mattress is so worn that it will break in half while you are sleeping on it. Have you ever had that scary dream of falling into a deep hole? Do you find that you now living this dream in reality? Well, it is time for a new mattress in that case.
Even if you yourself do not yet think you need a new mattress, sometimes your partner might start complaining a lot about sleeping discomfort. Since you want to keep your partner happy, you might decide to change your mattress just for them.
Do you feel like your back hurts while sleeping or after you wake up? Do you feel that you are having trouble falling asleep? Do you feel tired even after a full night’s rest? Well, all of these are also signs that you should change your mattress.
I know this may seem particularly comforting for you, but it is actually not a good sign when your mattress has formed an exact impression of your body. Although you may think that you have wore in your mattress, this is actually a sign that your mattress should be replaced as soon as possible.
Also, if you notice that you roll on your bed at the same time as your partner or your mattress makes a screeching noise, this also means that you should change your mattress.
The final way that you can tell for sure that you need to change your mattress is if you feel more comfortable sleeping on someone else’s bed than on your own. Your mattress should definitely be the most comfortable one for you.
