For most products, it’s pretty clear when they need to be replaced; they are either broken and don’t work or they show obviously signs of wear and tear. Mattresses are different though. It may not be so obvious when it’s time to replace yours with a new mattress. Just like your favorite pair of running shoes, a mattress can feel comfortable long after it has lost its ability to properly support you while you are sleeping.
Sleeping with proper support is critical to maintaining your good health and productivity. According to the National Sleep Foundation, an adult between the ages of 18-64 needs between 7 and 9 hours of sleep. Tossing and turning on an uncomfortable and ill-supporting mattress can prevent you from getting that sleep and result in you not feeling your best.
So how do you know when it’s time to replace your mattress? Here are five signs to look for:
- You wake up with a sore back.
- You toss and turn all night.
- You get better sleep anywhere other than your bed.
- Your mattress shows visible signs of wear like sagging or lumping.
- You sleep but wake up tired.
How long a mattress lasts really depends on a lot of factors such a quality of the original set and if the mattress is built to be flipped and rotated. As a general rule of thumb, most manufactures recommend replacing mattresses every 5 to 7 years. After that time, the products begin to offer less support and comfort.
