How Long Do Spring Mattresses Last?An old mattress doesn’t attract much attention, but it can make a big difference in your sleep quality. If your mattress is like an old shoe that feels comfortable, but has lost all support and actually makes your feet more tired, then it’s time for a replacement. But how do you know when to replace a mattress with a new model from a mattress store? How long does a spring mattress last?

Lifespan of a Spring Mattress

The length of time a mattress lasts depends on the quality of the mattress and how often it’s used. A general rule of thumb for spring mattresses is that they last about seven years. However, it’s best to pay attention to your body to determine when it’s time to buy a new one. Some mattresses should be replaced in less than seven years, while some last longer. Proper care of a spring mattress, including rotating it end to end and flipping it top to bottom, help extend its lifespan.
