Here at Mattressnextday, we sell high-quality mattresses that are designed to last for years. Sadly, however, no mattress lasts forever. No matter how dependable a mattress is, you will inevitably need to get rid of it and invest in a new one eventually. But how do you know when a mattress needs to be replaced? There are several signs to look out for that indicate it’s time to buy a new mattress.
If your mattress starts to sag in the middle or on one side, it may be advisable to replace it. Sagging is a sign of age and means the mattress may not be able to give you the support you need while you sleep. Because a sagging mattress can’t adequately support your body, sleeping on one regularly can actively damage your body and cause serious aches. You can extend the life of a sagging mattress by flipping it over and sleeping on the other, firmer side. However, we recommend simply replacing the mattress altogether, just to be safe.
If you can feel a mattress’s springs poking you while you try to sleep, it’s definitely time to buy a new one. A mattress’s springs should be shielded by a layer of comfortable material: if you can feel them, it means your mattress is succumbing to wear-and-tear. We strongly advise that you replace it before one of the springs breaks through the surface of the mattress and gives you a nasty surprise.
Sometimes, a mattress simply becomes uncomfortable to sleep on. If you start to notice that you can no longer find a comfortable position in bed at night, your ageing mattress may be the problem. The best thing to do is to invest in a new mattress before you lose too much sleep.
If your mattress is no longer suitable to sleep on, there’s no need to worry. We at Mattressnextday have a huge range of mattresses waiting for you. Giving up a mattress that you’ve slept on for years isn’t a pleasant experience, but we promise that trying out your new mattress for the first time will be!
