How Long Should You Wait Before Replacing Your Mattress?

Blog provided by The Foam Factory

When was the last time you replaced your mattress? The prospect of getting a new one when your old one still works can sound tiresome to many mattress owners, but getting a mattress replacement is an inevitable and necessary part of keeping your sleeping space in good shape.

Most sleep and bed experts will recommend replacing your mattress after using the same one for 7-10 years. This is generally a good rule of thumb, even though how long your mattress lasts will depend on a variety of factors, including how well it is maintained, what material it is made of, and your body type and level of comfort. Innerspring mattresses tend to last shorter, while memory foam and latex foam mattresses have a longer lifespan.

You may be able to use your mattress until the end of its lifespan, but there are some situations that warrant mattress replacement. For example, if you are severely uncomfortable or you experience aches and pains while lying down or after waking up, you may need to switch to a more comfortable mattress. Also, if you have owned your mattress for a long time, dirt, skin oils, and dust mites may have accumulated on it. If you are experiencing allergic reactions as a result of these materials, it might also be a good idea to switch mattresses.
