How to Spot the Signs of a Bad Mattress

Your mattress is the most important part of your sleep. It provides the basis for your sleep and, depending on the quality of yours, can result in a restful sleep or a restless one. Pillows play a part too, as does your environment - but we believe mattresses are the thing that matters most. 

How Long Do Mattresses Last?

Most mattresses have a lifespan of approximately 7-10 years. 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. One obvious sign of sagging is seeing a visual body indentation - in this case, you should strongly consider replacing your old mattress. Teddy bed mattresses come with a 10-year warranty as well as boasting memory foam and natural latex which supports a deeply aligned sleep.

Signs of a Bad Mattress

Constantly waking up in discomfort after sleep can point to a poor-quality mattress that is placing stress on your neck, shoulders, back and hips. Your mattress may have worn unevenly and could be a contributing factor to aches and pains. Mattresses should also help regulate the sleeper’s temperature with breathable materials to provide a comfortable sleeping environment. Poor mattresses can trap heat and cause you to overheat during the night. Without moisture-wicking properties, it can be quite an unpleasant experience waking up in the night covered in sweat. That’s why teddy bed uses ultra-breathable natural latex foam that also conforms to the contours of your body.

Dangers of a Poor Mattress

Old mattresses that have had years of use can grow quite unclean over time and even affect your health. It’s best to keep allergens out of your bed but they have been known to build up. If you have allergies or notice them worsen it could be due to your mattress. Dust is one thing, but mildew and mould are another. These can grow to create an unsuitable place to sleep. Another worry is attracting dust mites. These can cause sneezing, sinus pressure, runny nose or watering eyes. A good mattress clean should be done on occasion but if yours is old and worn, we suggest a new one.
