The average person spends about a third of their life sleeping, so it’s essential to have a comfortable mattress. On average, the best mattresses have a lifespan of around seven to 10 years (some last much longer). But when is it time to get a new one? 

There are several signs that it’s time for a new mattress, including: 


You’ve had your current mattress for more than 7 years. 

If this is the case, it’s time to say goodbye and upgrade. Although there are many combinations of materials used in mattresses, the main types are memory foam, hybrid, latex, or innerspring. Each type will have a slightly different lifespan. Here’s a quick run-down of how long each type of mattress lasts on average:

Memory foam: 7-10 years

Hybrid: 6-8 years

Latex: 8-12 years

Innerspring: 5-7 years

You’re waking up with aches and pains. 

A sore back, a kink in your neck, or hip pains could all be signs that your mattress isn’t supporting your body. Repeated use of a bad mattress can lead to doctors appointments, medical bills, and quite frankly – pain. A firm mattress with a pillow top helps the spine align without becoming too stiff. We pick our mattresses based on support needs so select the one that best meets yours!

You’re not getting a good night’s sleep. 

Waking up and just not feeling refreshed? Sometimes, it’s just more than a few cups of coffee can fix. It might be because of your mattress! Your mattress could harbor allergens and dust, which could wreck your night of sleep. As technology advances, mattresses have become more hypoallergenic and better designed. Mattress manufacturers can now guarantee a good night’s sleep for users and enjoy comfort and satisfaction.

You’re getting older, and your mattress doesn’t suit your needs anymore

Just like our mattresses, the wear and tear of life get our bodies all bent out of shape. Our bones, muscles, and habits require different things as we age. Just think how uncomfortable it would be to sleep on a crib mattress today! A high-quality mattress that fits your personal needs is a sound sleep investment.
