There are numerous variables that contribute to the wear and tear of a mattress. It’s suggested that you replace a mattress at least every 10 years, however, a high quality mattress will tend to last longer. The first signs of an aging mattress is being uncomfortable when you lie down and waking up achy. Human bodies become more sensitive to pressure points as they age, which can lead to tossing, turning, and disturbed sleep, all of which is bad for your overall health.
The wrong mattress (or one that’s simply too old) can be causing more than neck and back pain. In a sleep study where men and women slept on their regular mattresses for 28 days, then on a new medium-firm mattress for the next 28 days, they were asked to evaluate their stress levels before and after the new mattress was introduced. The new mattresses resulted in a significant decrease in stress based on factors such as worrying, racing thoughts, nervousness, irritability, etc.
Old mattresses will also accumulate many allergens through the years. Our bodies naturally shed dead skin cells which attract dust mites. Over 20 million Americans are allergic to these bugs, especially ones with asthma. Frequently washing your linens and vacuuming the surface of your mattress will eliminate part of this issue, but over time, a replacement will be necessary.
