Five Signs of a Bad Mattress

Signs aren’t always obvious, but if your mattress leaves you tossing and turning at night then perhaps there’s an issue. Do you wake up in the morning only to find that feel less than refreshed? These are just two of the most common signs that it’s time to replace your uncomfortable mattress.

After all, a good night’s sleep can help us feel refreshed, alert, and happy during the day. If that’s not worth a little investment, we don’t know what is!

Here are five signs you’re sleeping on a bad mattress (Time to invest in a brand new Sleepeezee mattress!):

Your mattress is old

A mattress isn’t a good glass of merlot – it won’t get better with age!

Over the years it will begin to sag, which will leave you with a very uncomfortable bed. Without the right support, you may have trouble drifting off, and your mattress could cause pain in your back and neck. This won’t just cause you problems at night, either, as you’ll most likely wake up feeling sore, stiff, and still very tired. If you’ve had your mattress for more than 7 years and you’ve noticed it just doesn’t do the trick anymore, it’s probably time for it to retire!

You bought a cheap mattress

Everyone loves getting a great deal, but if you skimp on your mattress, you’ll also be skimping on comfort and a great night’s sleep. You spend around a third of your life in bed, more than you do in your car, so why don’t we invest as much?

This doesn’t necessarily mean breaking the bank but investing as much as you can spare will hopefully save you from endless sleepless nights on a mattress that’s poorly made, and just not right for you. An uncomfortable mattress just isn’t worth the bother!

You suffer from allergies.

Over time, mattresses collect dust, which in turn attracts dust mites. Dust mites are microscopic insects that feed on mildew-degraded house dust. If you have dust, you have dust mites!

Many of us unknowingly sleep right on top of them without realizing it, but if you’ve got allergies, you may be allergic to dust mites. Over the course of several years, these critters multiply, so if you haven’t taken precautions to control their multiplication, it might be time to consider a new bed sooner rather than later!

Lack of sleep

If you’ve slept eight hours but still wake up groggy, it could be your bed’s fault. A night or two won’t kill you, but chronic sleep deprivation can lead to more serious health conditions. Not only are you depriving your body of the time it needs to repair and restore itself, but poor sleep can also result in daytime drowsiness, poor judgment, and mood swings.

Your mattress is sinking

No not like the titanic. But a sinking mattress is typically the result of normal wear-and-tear to your mattress. The materials used in mattresses tend to soften over time, as they are exposed to significant pressure every night from the sleeper’s body. Over time, this gradual softening leads to a feeling of sagging, and less even support.

If you find your body sagging in the middle, it’s definitely time to change your mattress!
