Signs That Indicate It’s Time To Replace Your Mattress

If you own any regular mattress or a memory foam mattress, you can find it losing its shape after some 7 to 10 years, and that’s the time you should definitely get rid of it. The suggested time frame to replace a mattress is usually after 8 years. However, following proper maintenance and care, your mattress can make it more than the suggested time period. But if you haven’t followed any such steps, you should sure get it replaced.

There are few signs which your mattress put out that clearly indicates that it’s time to get a new mattress. Mind you! These signs can occur at any time and hence, you shouldn’t ignore it if it’s happening in the initial years:

1. You keep waking up tired

No matter how good you are in maintaining your sleep hygiene, you keep waking up feeling dismantled. The reason could probably be your mattress. It begins to wear out over time imparting less comfort and support. This doesn’t let you sleep in a proper posture and ends up interrupting a sound sleep.

2. Abnormal allergies

Do you wake up to a stuffy nose and a sore throat which subsides gradually? Don’t jump into conclusion thinking it’s an infection or a virus. The problem could very much be your mattress. Over time, allergy causing germs, dust mites and mold settle on your mattress causing allergies and other skin rashes. It’s a glaring sign which says that you should immediately get rid of the mattress.

3. Your mattress keeps sagging

After a few years, a regular mattress tend to lose it’s former shape and firmness and starts sagging. The fibers and fillings on the inside starts wearing out resulting in an unstable mattress. This sagging can cause severe back aches and pain if ignored.

4. Pressure is felt on spine

Are you feeling a constant pressure on your spine while sleeping? This is a sign that your mattress has worn out and has lost the ability to provide spine alignment. This is usually the case when a mattress has been used for more than suggested years. If left unchecked, the bed creates more pressure points.

5. You got a sore muscle

Sleep is the fuel to a rejuvenated morning and a refreshed mood. Your body is supposed to feel light and lively. On the contrary, if you wake up feeling weird aches on your muscles, your mattress is the trouble. This soreness is caused by the mattress which can no longer provide relief to heavy body parts and pressure points.

6. You find difficult to sleep

No matter what position you prefer sleeping, and despite a hundred toss and turns, you don’t find a comfortable position to sleep. The reason isn’t you, it’s your mattress. This is usually the case when you’ve either picked a wrong mattress or the mattress is dying out.


If all the above mentioned problem persists, it’s time that you should look for a replacement. Next time, you need to ensure that the mattress you own vouch for support and comfort for a comparatively long period of time, so that you don’t have to invest in a mattress every 7 years. A mattress is the very essence of a bed as well as your sleep. Therefore, best never to compromise with it.
