When Should You Replace Your Mattress?Getting a good night’s sleep is important every single night of your life. A good night’s sleep sets the tone for your day. The way your room is decorated, the bedding you sleep on, the type of pillows you use, all the way down to your mattress determines whether you wake up rested or tired.

Is It Time to Go to The Mattress Store?

There are many ways to determine whether it is time to hit a mattress store in Calgary for a new mattress. How you sleep is a great indicator. If you find that you are waking up with body aches, numbness, stiffness, or you are waking up tired it is time to get a replacement mattress. If you look and find that there are rips and holes it is time for a replacement. Another great indicator is the age. Have you been sleeping on it for more than seven years? The wear and tear will begin to show through more and more after seven years.

Buying A New Mattress

Your mattress is the most important element to your bed. It can make or break your ability to sleep well. Not having the ability to sleep well can and will affect your health. It is important to do your research and choose wisely when buying a mattress. You have many options to choose from and the best way to make a choice is to test them all out. Some will be firm and some will be soft, the right one for you will be determined by how your body feels when you lay on top of it.

Making Your Mattress Last

Now that you have changed the old with the new, it is time to think about how to keep and make it last possibly as long as ten years. To preserve your sleeping ability, take these precautions:

  • Rotate and flip your mattress often
  • Do not let the kids jump on the bed

Rotating your bed from time to time will help keep it from wearing on one side. Flipping, when possible, and rotating it 180 degrees will even out the wear your bed will take through the years. Though it is fun to do flips and jumps on the bed, this activity can wear out the springs. If your children love jumping, buy them a trampoline.
