How Often Should You Replace Your Mattress?
How old is your mattress? It might surprise you to find out that some people actually have no idea how long they have had their current mattresses for. On a worse note, many folks do not even know the life-cycle of a typical mattress and when they should even start to consider a new one. Most experts agree when asked the popular question,” How often should you replace your mattress?” Let’s find out what they said.
Experts Weigh in on Mattress Replacement
If you want to know how long you can keep snoozing on your current bedding, take heed of these facts from the experts. According to the National Sleep Foundation, a good quality mattress lasts about 9 to 10 years, however Consumer Reports indicates that people over the age of 40 need new bedding around the 7-year mark for optimal support.
Other experts have done research that indicates a shorter mattress life is better and that 10 years is a bit too long to keep your current bed. A study at Oklahoma State University revealed that people who replaced their mattress after only 5 years had significantly less back pain and consistently had a better night’s sleep. Over all, the consensus of the experts is to replace your mattress every 5 to 7 years.
My Mattress Still Looks Good, Why Should I Replace it?
Unfortunately, just because your old mattress still looks good, that does not mean it does not need to be replaced. Not only do old mattresses accumulate years and years of dead skin cells, sweat, and bacteria; it is a breeding ground for millions of creepy critters that are living there right now. It’s true. If your current mattress is over 7 years old, there’s a solid chance that these things are living in your bed:
- Dust Mites
- Bed Bugs
