How long should a mattress last and how to make it last longer
As we all know, a good night's sleep is essential for our physical and mental well-being. One of the key factors that can significantly impact our sleep quality is the mattress on which we sleep. A high-quality mattress can provide us with the comfort and support we need, but it is vital to take proper care of it to extend its lifespan.
Today, I am delighted to share some tips on how to protect your mattress and increase its lifespan:
1. Invest in a mattress protector. A top-quality mattress protector is a clever investment to protect your mattress from spills, stains and even dust mites. If you choose the right one, it can certainly add an extra layer of protection to your mattress, thereby extending its lifespan. PeapodMats are a popular choice due to their 100% waterproof and breathable qualities. PeapodMats also don't make any rustling noise and are easy to wash and dry.
2. Rotate your mattress. Rotating your mattress every three to six months can help it wear more evenly, increasing its lifespan. Rotating your mattress can prevent sagging and body impressions.
3. Keep your mattress clean. Vacuum your mattress regularly to remove dust and dirt and spot-clean any stains immediately. You can use a mild detergent and water solution to clean any stains, but avoid using harsh chemicals that can damage the fabric and filling. This will help you to maintain the quality and hygiene of your mattress and keep it last longer!
4. Avoid jumping on your bed. While it may be tempting to jump on the bed, doing so can cause damage to your mattress, especially the springs and foam. Avoid jumping on the bed, as this will help you protect your mattress from unnecessary wear and tear. Our kids in particular love jumping on the bed, but due to this, our mattress needed a replacement after just 3 years!
5. Know when to replace your mattress. Most mattress shops suggest that you replace your mattress every 8-10 years, depending on its quality and usage. If you notice sagging, lumps, or visible signs of wear and tear, it's definitely time to replace your mattress. Back and neck pain might also be good indicators that you need to change the mattress and even possibly its firmness.
Taking care of your mattress can help you get the most out of it, and these tips can help you increase its lifespan. A good quality mattress is an investment in your sleep, health and well-being, so it is essential to take proper care of it.
