How Long Should A Mattress Last?
How long should a mattress last?
There’s a short and long answer to this question. In short, a mattress typically lasts about eight to 10 years. The long answer is, it depends on a few variables.
Here are some of the things that can affect the length of your mattresses’ lifespan:
- What type of mattress you purchase. Some types such as innerspring mattresses usually don’t last as long as pillow-top mattresses.
- How well you maintain your mattress. If you’re diligent about using a mattress protector and rotate your mattress regularly, it can last a long time.
- How often you use it. If you’re using your bed for the typical recommended seven to nine hours of sleep only, then your mattress will probably last longer in comparison to using it on a more frequent basis.
- The weight supported by your mattress can also affect its longevity.
Of course, you should probably replace your mattress if you purchased it eight to 10 years ago since mattresses experience breakdown. They also collect sweat, dirt and skin cells.
There are other signs to watch for that can signify it’s time for a new mattress. If you’re waking up feeling more tired than when you went to bed or your couch feels more comfortable, it’s time to go mattress shopping. If you’re waking up with aches and pains or you see lumps, dips and valleys in your mattress where you sleep, that’s another sign it’s time for an upgrade.
