7 reasons for a new mattress
- Your mattress is more than seven years old – We should replace our mattress with a new one every seven years out of hygienic reasons and because the human body and its needs change over time.
- Hygienic reasons – While sleeping we produce sweat and shed dead skin cells. A warm room temperature, appropriate humidity, sweat and the dead skin cells all enable mites to evolve fast. In addition to mites, dust, viruses, bacteria and fungi accumulate in our mattress. All of this represents an unhealthy sleeping environment, but by getting a new mattress we can re-establish a good and healthy sleeping climate
- Our body changes over time and so does our need for comfort – Our body and needs change over the years, the older we get, the more comfort we need. That is why we choose mattresses with more comfortable and flexible upper layers. We recommend that you compare your mattress to new models on the market every few years.
- Wear and tear of materials – A mattress performs 20,000 working hours in seven years; think about it, a car performs about 2,500 hours during the same period of time, and many people already replace it in the meantime. Over time a mattress loses its elasticity and does not provide adequate support for the proper position of our spine. We do not necessarily feel it, because we use it on a daily basis.
- You wake up stiff, sullen and in pain.
- You sleep better elsewhere (e.g. in a hotel) than in your own bed.
- Your mattress shows signs of visible wear and tear (it is lumpy, the fabric is loose, the inside is showing in places).
