Do Mattresses in a Box Last Longer Than Traditional Mattresses?

All mattresses are more or less the same, right? Wrong. Over the past several years mattresses in a box have grown in popularity for a number of reasons. They are more affordable, have lower shipping costs - as they take up a lot less room, and are of the same quality, if not better. But what is a mattress in a box? A mattress in a box is just like a regular mattress but is rolled up tight and compressed in an air-sealed bag for shipping. For the customer, it is much easier to move and manoeuvre on arrival. If you haven’t previously purchased a mattress in a box before, you may want to know if they last as long as traditional mattresses, so we’ve provided a guide.

Traditional Mattresses 

Traditional mattresses are made with a variety of materials, including springs, foam and latex. These mattresses are designed to last for approximately 7 to 10 years, although this can vary depending on the quality of the mattress and how well it's cared for. Factors such as weight, sleep position, and usage patterns can also impact the lifespan of a traditional mattress. Over time they can begin to deteriorate with wear and many mattresses suffer sagging over time. This can contribute to uneven spinal support and cause pressure on various areas of the body and spine.

It’s worth noting that not all brands offer such extensive warranties on their products and therefore may not last a decade of use. The lifespan of any mattress in a box can vary greatly depending on the quality of the mattress and how well it's cared for. Just like traditional mattresses, proper care and maintenance can help prolong the lifespan of a mattress in a box. This includes rotating the mattress every few months, using a mattress protector, and keeping the mattress clean.
