Spring is in the Air: But, Does Your Mattress Still Give You That Spring in Your Step?

With spring comes spring cleaning. And, while you’re taking a look at and cleaning up the rest of your home, why not take a moment to consider whether or not your old mattress is still working for you. At The Mattress Superstore, we are experts in all things mattresses and have some advice to help you determine whether or not your old mattress deserves to go out with the dust bunnies. And, if you realize you don’t love your old mattress anymore, we’ve also got some things to keep in mind when buying a new mattress for your Woodbury home.

Are you tossing and turning?

If you’re simply not sleeping as well as you used to, this may be a sign you could use a new mattress. As a mattress ages and begins to wear out, it starts to sag in the middle. This wear and tear can cause your mattress to lose the firmness it once had. So rather than sleeping on a flat, comfortable surface, you end up sleeping on one that’s awkwardly curved in the middle.

Is your mattress ‘getting up there’?

Mattresses do have an expiration date. Although, it may not be labeled right on the tag, the rule of thumb is to replace your mattress every eight years or so. Over the span of eight years (about 2,290 nights), your comfortable bed will begin to wear out and become lumpy or even saggy. And, since we spend about a third of our lifetime in bed, over time, a mattress will start to collect dead skin cells, body oils and dust mites. Dust mite allergies can cause sneezing, itchiness, runny nose, watery eyes, coughing, and sinus pressure.

The best remedy? Replace your old mattress with a new one.
