They say a change is as good as a rest and many believe changing your mattress can help you get a better rest. Most mattresses, even the firmest, finest quality items, commonly last between five years to a decade. It is generally recommended you buy a new mattress every eight years. If you are having trouble sleeping, wake up tired or suffer aches and pains in the morning, it may be time to replace your mattress.
There are many different reasons why you may choose to change your mattress. The simple fact is it may be old and worn out and may be due to an upgrade. That is why it is advised you routinely give your mattress a once-over, checking for signs of ageing and wear and tear. Ranging from sagging, lumps and indentations, which could prove uncomfortable and affect your sleep. Having your rest disrupted can result in emotional or psychological problems like anxiety and depression. An out of shape mattress may lose its support and could possibly lead to a variety of physical complaints. From stiffness and sore muscles to numbness, neck and back pain, as well as trapped nerves.
What’s more, if you hold on to a mattress for too long a time, it could begin to collect unwelcome matter. These include a build-up of dead skin cells, dust mites, pollen and even body fluid residue among others. It is thought the stockpile of unwanted body matter can increase the weight of your mattress by almost 100%. You may launder your mattress and linens but there is a chance it may still contain particles which can be problematic for those who may suffer from allergies.
