We all know that getting a good night’s sleep is essential for good mental and physical health. Your brain and body get much-needed rejuvenation and refreshment, your hormones are able to regulate, and you are better able to function and succeed during your waking hours. All those hours logged in bed, however, eventually put your mattress through a lot of wear and tear. Because we get a lot of questions about replacing mattresses in Minneapolis, we’ve written this article to help others out. Read on to learn about your mattress and when it needs an upgrade.
Although every mattress is different, and we have seen mattresses last various amounts of time, the general recommendation by the Better Sleep Council is to replace your mattress if it is over 7 years old. Compression combined with daily wear and tear degrade the quality of a mattress over time, and past the 7-year mark, most mattresses no longer provide the support your body needs.
If you sleep at a hotel or stay as a guest at someone else’s home and feel like you’ve slept horribly (but you never feel that way at home), it is a good sign that your mattress is doing its job.
On the other hand, if you notice that your quality of sleep has declined, it might be a sign that it is time to start looking for a new mattress. If you wake up with aches and pains that you can’t attribute to other causes, if you feel tired even after a full night of sleep, or if your partner tosses and turns all night, it can be a sign of a mattress that is past its prime.
Stains, tears, visible sagging or indentations, and lumps all indicate that your mattress should be replaced. A watchful eye on your bed can be an easy way to increase your quality of sleep.
