Mattresses tend to last years if they are well-kept and maintained.
When is it the right time to change your mattress foam? Many homeowners tend to put off this task for a variety of reasons. It’s time-consuming, tedious, and expensive. However, if you want a good night’s rest, and a properly aligned spine, be sure that you keep a watchful eye on the condition of your mattress. Here are some things that you should be looking out for.
If you haven’t felt it already, damage on your mattress is pretty obvious to the naked eye. For instance, if you tend to sleep on one section of your mattress every night, you’ll notice that it’ll start to cave in, leaving you with an uneven surface. This doesn’t just look bad, it can also take a toll on your back as well. The springs tend to bend out of proportion, leaving your spine at the mercy of a surface as straight as a crowbar.
If you, like many homeowners, like to enjoy breakfast in bed, you’ve most likely spilled some food or liquids onto your mattress. You may not even have noticed it. Know that your mattress cushion filling will absorb this liquid and it could end up with you having to replace your mattress sooner than you thought. You never know what will end up inside your mattress – ants, bed bugs, moths, etc. If you start to see signs of discoloration and fading, you might want to reconsider sleeping on your current mattress until it’s appropriately replaced.
