Four Signs It's Time to Get a New Mattress

Mattresses, just like any other product, need to be replaced when they're worn out. Many manufacturers advise replacing mattresses every five to 10 years, but they can give out even earlier. The following are five signs it's time to get a new mattress.

1. Waking up hurts
If, after a full night's sleep, a person wakes up stiff, numb, or experiences pain in the lower back, it could be a sign that the springs and support systems inside the mattress are failing.

2. It feels better to sleep elsewhere
It's often harder to fall asleep on an unfamiliar bed, but if a person finds himself having a better night's sleep on a hotel bed or the living room couch, it could be a sign that the mattress is no longer fulfilling its purpose.

3. Sneezing, coughing, and hives
Mattresses, especially older ones with loose spring support systems, tend to collect allergens such as dust mites and dander over time. If a person experiences allergy symptoms on a regular basis, the mattress might be the culprit. Covering the mattress in “dust mite-proof” bedding is not enough. Studies suggest that, while allergy-proof bedding reduced exposure to dust mites, it isn't enough to prevent allergy and asthma symptoms. In this case, upgrading to a memory foam mattress might be in order.

4. The mattress is more than seven years old, and the owner is over 40
The older a person gets, the more he or she needs a firm mattress. Those who are over 40 years old should consider replacing their mattresses every four to seven years because older adults are more susceptible to pressure.

A mattress is a big investment, with prices ranging from a few hundred dollars to several thousand. Before purchasing a mattress, homeowners should do research on the various types of mattresses available today, and buy from reputable furniture stores.

I know it was going to happen eventually. All those long nights (and even all those short ones) together has to come to an end at some point. Goodbye my old mattress.
