How Often Should You Replace Your Mattress?

Replacing your Calgary mattress is always a satisfying feeling especially during that first night’s sleep. However, when to replace your mattress can be a point of contention.

Typically, replacing a mattress should be done every 7-10 years, with most professionals agreeing that 8 years is the ideal time for a replacement. However, there are some extenuating circumstances that can alter the frequency of mattress replacement, such as:

Replacing Your Mattress Depends on the Material

Certain materials used in mattress manufacture can wear quicker or slower than their alternatives. A good example of this is foam mattresses, which don’t typically need to be replaced more than every 10-15 years. 

Conversely, spring-based mattresses can wear quicker than others because of individual springs being worn quicker. In some cases, spring-based mattresses will need to be replaced every 7 years because of improperly bent springs or those that have been pulled loose. 

For a very lengthy mattress life cycle, consider going to a latex mattress. These mattresses can come with warranties for up to 25 years because of their quality manufacture and high-quality materials. However, be warned that if investing in a mattress with a long life cycle, good mattress maintenance will be essential. 

Replacing Your Mattress Depends on Wear

There are many determining factors when it comes to the rate of wear on your mattress. For instance, if you have small children and you let them jump on the bed you run the risk of developing ruts or wearing springs unnecessarily.

In other cases, gaining or losing weight can affect your sleep cycle which may make the mattress feel more uncomfortable. If you have worn a groove sized just for you in your Calgary mattress, you may find it is uncomfortable after a diet or other weight-changing event.

So, if you are tough on your mattress or other conditions change, it is understandable that your sleep might not be as comfortable, and replacing your mattress earlier than the 8-year average can make sense.

Regardless of the age of your mattress, if you feel it is time for a change, the best thing for you to do is visit a local Calgary mattress store and hear from the experts. They will be able to provide you with suggestions and recommendations for the type of mattress that is a perfect fit for your sleeping habits and find a variety of options available to match your desires.
