02 Dec Mattress Replacement: Common Signs You’ll See
Certain important items in our lives will need to be replaced or upgraded every so often, and one of the single most vital for many people here is their mattress. Exactly how often should you be thinking about replacing a primary mattress, and which key variables play a role in this conversation?
At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re here to help by not only providing a huge range of mattress options, spanning from memory foam and latex mattresses to innerspring, hybrid mattresses and more, but also to offer expertise in areas like these. In this two-part blog series, we’ll look at several factors to consider when it comes to mattress replacement – part one here will look at some key signs that it’s time for a replacement or could be in the near future, while part two will go into some of the underlying variables that tend to lead to these signs, plus how to consider them throughout the life of your mattress and when purchasing a new one.
Noticeable Sagging or Damage
In some cases, the signs that your mattress might need replacement will be visibly or tangibly obvious. One of the main signs here is sagging or damage to the mattress. This doesn’t necessarily mean that your mattress has reached the end of its life – regular use over time can cause these issues – but it does indicate a need for replacement sooner rather than later, as sleeping in an environment with weakened support from sagging or damaged mattresses can lead to a single of physical issues and discomfort.
Uncomfortable Sleep Quality
Another sign is if you’re noticing that your sleep quality has been decreasing in recent months or weeks, particularly if the discomfort can be attributed to something with your mattress – such as feeling too hot on it, or waking up with aches and pains. If so, it’s a good idea to explore replacing your mattress soon and avoiding more of these issues in the future.
Sleeping Better on Other Mattresses
Have you been sleeping better on other mattresses – be that in a hotel or elsewhere – than you are on your primary mattress? If so, there’s no doubt that you should take it as an indicator that your current mattress is no longer working for you and it’s time to look into replacement.
While some mattresses naturally make some noise as you move around and adjust position, it’s definitely not normal for your mattress to be making loud creaking noises or similar. If this is happening, it’s likely that the structure of the mattress has weakened and will require a replacement rather soon in order to ensure optimal sleep quality.
In conclusion, there are several signs that might indicate that it’s time to start thinking about replacing your current mattress, such as sagging or damage, decreasing sleep quality and comfort, sleeping better on other mattresses, and strange noises. In part two of this blog series, we’ll look into some of the underlying variables that can lead to these symptoms and how to consider them when purchasing a mattress.
