How often should you be changing your mattress?

* Sponsored Post 

While it may not be top of your to-do list to invest in a new mattress if you neglect to replace your mattress you can end up suffering from aches, pains and potential allergies over time. To help you understand how often to change your mattress and identify when its time to part ways with an old trusty mattress, we’ve put together some simple advice.



Signs you need a new mattress:

While there are no strict rules about exactly when you need to replace a mattress, there are certain warning signs and indicators to look out for and start saving up for the investment…

Sagging

Whether your mattress is suited to support your body weight or not, after many years of daily use it may still start to sag in certain areas. If you start to see or feel a large dip in your mattress when you lie down, its likely time to invest in a new one.

Lumps and bumps

In a similar vein, if lumps and bumps start occurring in your mattress where springs may have broken through or your body weight has distorted the shape of the mattress, this is another key indicator that your mattress has seen better days. While turning your mattress regularly can help to prevent lumps or sags from forming, if your mattress is more than ten years old, its best to invest in a new mattress that can support your spine and joints effectively without pressing on any potential pressure points.

Simba Sleep’s hybrid mattresses all come with a strict ten-year guarantee, so, should you notice any sagging or feel lumps when you’re in bed, you can simply get in touch to swap your mattress for a brand new one.

Noise

If your mattress starts to creak or squeak when you or your partner tosses and turns in the night, this is another sign that your mattress needs replacing. Over time, the springs in your mattress can start to rust or bend causing unusual noises that can be disturbing to yourself and others during the night.

Aches and pains

If you start to notice any regular aches and pains in your muscles or joints when you wake up, this can be a sign that your mattress is past its time. Over time, a mattress may start to sag or show lumps and bumps which can stop supporting your body in the right places or press onto your pressure points.


How to look after your mattress:

There are several important ways for you to take care of your mattress and ensure it lasts you for many years…

 

    Mattress protector and topper - placing a mattress topper on top of your mattress provides a layer of protection for your mattress and an extra layer of comfort for you.

    Supportive bed frame - make sure your mattress has plenty of support underneath it to prevent it from losing its shape.

    Turn your mattress regularly - although a high-quality mattress is built to last and withstand different bodyweights, its important to turn them semi-regularly to ensure there is even weight put onto its surface.

    Clean - when you’re changing your bed sheets, take the time to wipe down your mattress or spray it with furniture freshener to avoid it developing any smells or stains.

    Ventilation - bedrooms have the tendency to become stuffy over time, so its important to open windows and leave your mattress to air out without sheets occasionally.

    Keep kids and pets off the bed - this one is trickier for those who have pets or animals in the house but try to avoid letting kids or heavy pets jump onto the bed.
