Getting a good night’s sleep is important not only for your physical but also your mental health.
An aging mattress that is no longer providing the support your body needs can reduce your sleep quality, making you tired, cranky, and desperate for a good night’s sleep. So how do you know when you need to replace your mattress?
Depending on the type of mattress you have, its life span can vary. Innerspring mattresses that use a coil support system can last up to 10 years, memory foam up to 15 years and latex mattress can even last up to 25 years.
It is important to know the average life span of the type of mattress you purchase, because there will come a time where the mattress is not doing its job. Not getting enough sleep is linked to several health problems such as kidney and heart disease.
As your mattress ages, dust mites and allergens can accumulate in the mattress, worsening allergies and other respiratory conditions.
