A Rude Awakening for Old Mattresses

Why Get a New Mattress Every 8 Years?

For many people it doesn’t matter how early they hit the hay, they still wake up tired and sore. If you’re like millions of Americans, your mattress has been in your home for years. According to The Better Sleep Council, a typical mattress lasts roughly 7 to 10 years. After sleeping on the same surface every night for that long, your mattress will likely start to warp or lose its shape. You may also be irritated by allergens that have built up over your mattress’ lifetime. intelliBED in Holladay has a diverse inventory of luxury mattresses designed to last up to three times longer than typical models.

Still feeling skeptical? intelliBED knows the telltale signs that you need a new mattress:

Dips and Droops

A new or healthy mattress should be an even, level surface. This provides stability to your spine, hips and other joints throughout the night. Over time, as you use your mattress each night, your body will create dips and sags in the springs. Traditional springs aren’t the only ones that lose shape. Even foam will lose its “memory” and fail to reform. This may not seem like a big deal, but dips in your mattress can be harmful to your back and other parts of your body.

Sleepy, Sneezy and Grumpy

You use your current mattress for 8 hours every day for several years, so it’s bound to get dirty. Even with regular cleanings, your mattress can host a menagerie of allergens like mold, mildew and dust mites. If you feel stuffed up in the morning or can’t stop sneezing, it might be time to consider a new mattress.

Waking Up Achy

With the sags, dips and lumps in your current mattress, your body is forced to compensate and balance itself out while you sleep. This puts extra strain on your shoulders, neck and back through the night, leaving you achy and sore in the morning. You should wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated.
