A good night’s sleep is extremely important for our health. One of the main factors that affect our quality of sleep is the quality of our mattress. Over time mattresses wear out and collect dust, sweat, dead skin, etc. This adds weight to your mattress and takes away the great quality of it that provides us with a good night’s sleep. Here are 4 signs to help you figure out if it’s time to replace your mattress.

Your Mattress is 7-10 Years Old

Mattresses are known to have a life-span of around eight years. However, it could be different based on what type of mattress you have, whether you sleep alone or with a partner, and how well you sleep. Mattresses are not made to last forever and over time it is inevitable that they begin to wear and tear. If your mattress is old, that is the first indication that you may need to buy a new one.

Your Mattress is Saggy

Another indication that you need to purchase a new mattress is if there are dents in your mattress in the shape of your body. No matter what amazing brand of mattress you have, over time it is inevitable for your mattress to not sag. Over time, the sagging of your mattress will start to bring you discomfort which will then result in not getting a good night’s sleep.

You Wake Up Stiff & Sore

If you are waking up each morning with back and neck pain, it is likely that your mattress is not supporting you well. Your mattress may be uncomfortable or providing you with poor quality sleep which both result in waking up with aches. If your aches and pains go away after you get out of bed, stretch, and walk around, it is likely that your mattress is the reason for them. This is a huge indicator to purchase a new mattress so that you can keep your body healthy with the best support and quality of sleep.

Your Allergies or Asthma is Worsening

If you are experiencing allergy or asthma symptoms while it’s not allergy season, your mattress may be to blame. Over time, dust mites accumulate in your mattress and can cause allergic reactions and asthma attacks.
