Subtle Signs of Mattress Wear

We all have different sleep habits and preferences, and down similar lines, we all treat our mattresses just a little differently. Some of us will stick with the same handy mattress until it essentially falls apart while we sleep on it, while others are very into the feel of a newer mattress and like to upgrade theirs regularly.

At 2 Brothers Mattress, we’re here to serve both ends of this spectrum and everyone in between. From our memory foam mattresses to innerspring, latex and numerous other styles and sizes, we have every option and accessory you could need. And while the signs that it’s time for a new mattress will vary between individuals, we’ve noticed a few common areas that generally signal that time is near. Let’s look at a few.

Positioning Issues

The primary area of importance with any mattress is sleeping comfort, and that’s often the first thing that begins to slip when it’s time for your mattress to be replaced. If you notice that you just can’t find the right position anymore, or you’ve begun to toss and turn despite no major changes in your life or your sleep patterns, this could be a sign that your mattress is wearing down. Many people mistakenly assume their worsening sleep is due to other issues when they could be replacing their mattress and getting a better rest right away.

Lumpy Areas

The feel of a mattress is a huge factor in sleep comfort, both for how you feel physically while falling asleep and for how your body adjusts subconsciously once you’ve fallen into slumber. One potential issue here is lumps or bumps in the mattress, which can develop over time and may lead to significant aches and pains associated with sleep. Even if you don’t feel discomfort while falling asleep, if you notice these pains in the morning or throughout your day and can’t pinpoint another cause, it’s often your mattress.


There are several methods you can take to help prevent stains on the mattress, but there’s also a simple reality at play here: Stains can often be a visible reminder that a mattress needs replacing even if you haven’t noticed other signs. Clean the mattress regularly, of course, but if you notice multiple stains that have built up over time, it could be the right time to at least consider a replacement.

Allergen Buildup

Another long-term process that can take place with mattresses? The buildup of sweat, dust and other common allergens, which can collect in the mattress. Dust mites, in particular, are known to nestle in mattresses and cause allergies in those who are susceptible to them. If you’ve recently noticed an uptick in allergy symptoms with no other good explanation, your mattress could be the culprit.
