Signs You Need to Replace Your Mattress
Most mattresses on the market come with a 7-10 year warranty, but that doesn’t mean that your bed will stay as comfortable as it has been for a decade. In particular, the top layer of your mattress can easily wear out and sag or soften, and buying a new mattress is a smart thing to do when it no longer gives you the proper support. In addition, some signs suggest you need to replace your mattress:
+ It is over 7-8 years old;
+ Wake up with soreness and stiffness;
+ Noticeable or visible signs of wear, like sagging, holes, irremovable stains, tears, or ripping;
+ Your allergies are getting worse;
+ Sleep hot on your foam mattress;
+ Difficult to fall asleep;
+ Your bed tends to squeak or creak;
+ A significant change in your weight or sleep position.
