Replace Your Mattress

Before, not after, it's too late

It can be tricky to know when you should replace your mattress. Since you sleep on it every night, you don’t easily notice how much it is getting worn and old. That is why many people spend years sleeping on mattresses that are only hurting their quality of sleep. To help you get all the rest you need each and every night, we’ve put together this list of tips to help you decide when to replace your mattress:

Signs that Your Mattress is Too Old

Make it a point to occasionally focus on the quality of your mattress. We suggest doing it twice a year so you don’t go too long sleeping on a bad mattress. Around the time that you turn your clocks forwards or back, look for these signs that you mattress needs to be replaced:

  • You wake up feeling stiff or in pain.
  • You recently got a better night’s sleep on another mattress at a hotel or friend’s house.
  • Your mattress shows visible signs of wear and tear including sagging, tears, holes, or stains.
  • You wake up feeling tired after a full night of sleep.

Once you decide that it is time to replace your mattress, you’ll need be careful that you replace it with something that is in fact an upgrade. Here are a few tips to help ensure you make the right choice.

  • Make sure that you replace both the mattress and the box springs. It’s not worth it to only replace the mattress, or to try and "fix" bad box springs.
  • Determine what you liked and didn’t like about your old mattress, and if there have been any changes to your sleep style or sleep space. Take all this into account when choosing your new mattress.
  • Wear comfortable and loose clothing when you go mattress shopping. These better imitate the clothes that you will be wearing when you sleep.
  • Keep an open mind when you go mattress shopping. You may be loyal to one brand or style, but be sure to consider all your options before falling back on the familiar one.
  • Know that the more you spend, the longer your new mattress is likely to last. A cheaper option may save you money now but force you to replace your mattress sooner.
