Myth #1: A Firm Mattress is Always the Best for Your Back

Although firm mattresses are best for helping some people’s back problems, that isn’t necessarily the case for everyone. You need a mattress that conforms to your personal sleeping positions while supporting all areas of your body. Whether you choose a soft, medium firm or firm mattress; you need to find the one that best offers support and conformability for you.

Myth #2: Replace Your Mattress Every 8 Years

Although it is recommended to replace your mattress every seven to ten years, every mattress is different. The wear on your mattress depends on its quality, how you sleep on it and how often it is rotated. You’ll know when it’s time to replace your mattress – so don’t always rely on the 8 year rule. The experts at our mattress store can tell you even more!

Myth #3: A Mattress Should Be Perfect from the Moment You Lay Down on It

Most of the time, you will need at least a month to adjust to a new mattress. Muscles and joints have a memory of how to find the most comfortable spot. And, when you get a new mattress you must allow your body to adjust to this new surface. Stop by our mattress store and we can help you choose the mattress that makes this transition as smooth as possible.

Myth #4: Never Remove the Law Tag on Your Mattress

This one is our favorite! The truth is once you’ve bought the mattress and it’s in your home, you can do whatever you want with it. But if you ever need to file a warranty claim, it needs to be attached to the mattress because it contains critical information that will help the manufacturer process your claim.
