How Often You Should Change Your Mattress: Based on Type, Age

How often to change Your mattress?

There is a website called Better Sleep Council which recommends changing your mattress every seven years.

You’ll find slightly different answers from expert to expert, but most agree on between six to ten years, depending on how often the mattress is being used and the quality of the mattress. 

However, as the professionals at the Better Sleep Council point out, your body will change over time, and your need for comfort and support will increase as you age.

This means that you might need to change your mattress sooner than 6-10 years, if your body feels like trying something new, just go for it.

Of course, a good mattress costs a decent amount of money for most people, but if you take care of it, you won’t need to change it too often.

What happens if You don’t change it?

First of all, the mattress will simply wear off if you don’t change it at least every 8 years.

It’s very possible that you will want to change it 6 or even 5 years later.

It really depends on the quality of the mattress as well as your sleep habits.

Why should you change it every 8 years?

Again, we kind of answered this in the last paragraph, but people always ask if you can extend this period.

The truth is, that some mattresses can be used for 10 years.

This would require a mattress protector, proper maintenance, that way it’s a real possibility for it to last longer than 8 years.

Some might even last 15, 20 years, or maybe even more.

But they would be washed and very carefully taken care of all throughout the years.

And getting a new mattress after 5 years would probably be a far better choice, than saving a thousand pounds in 20 years.

Good sleep pays off instantly, the ROI is limitless.
