Signs It Might Be Time To Get A New Mattress
Cbus Mattress Girl here to answer a question I get all of the time!
When should I replace my old mattress?
First things first, If you’re wondering about getting a new mattress it's probably ready to be replaced . Mattresses are typically designed to last between five and ten years, depending on the quality of the mattress and upkeep. I like to go by the 8 rule... "replace every eight". This means replace your mattress every eight years to avoid sleepless nights and in eight years you'll have enough savings in your budget for the mattress you're looking for.
Here are some signs that it's time to replace your old mattress
1. Time & Mattress Age
As time goes by changes will occur with your mattress and you may notice visible signs of aging, this is natural. Look for signs of wear and tear or indentations.
2. A Dirty Mattress
Mattresses carry a lot of dirt! They collect body fluids, dead skin cells, animal hair, dust mites, pollen and other allergies (that double over ten years). The best way to protect your mattress from dirt is by using a mattress protector and washing your sheets on a regular basis.
3. A Change In Your Lifestyle
Did you purchase your current mattress to share with a partner you are no longer with? Or maybe for your child to sleep with you with enough space? Often times people forget about simple life changes, noticing these changes can help you get better sleep. Use these next life steps to get a mattress that belongs to you (and partner) and provides the support and space you (and your partner) need.
4. Sleepless Nights / Waking Up With Aches & Pains
Are you not getting as much sleep as you used to? Or maybe you're waking up with aches and pains? If you answered yes to either of these questions it might be time to start mattress shopping. All of these are signs of a worn-out mattress.

What Are Hybrid Mattresses Made Of?
Hybrid mattresses are the new customer favorite! In the last few years we have seen hybrid latex mattresses become a hit because they are versatile and give you the comfort in between an innerspring and memory foam.
So, if you have commitment issues...I suggest a hybrid latex mattress.
What is a hybrid bed, anyway?
Hybrid beds are 50% individually wrapped coils and 50% memory foam. The coils give the mattress support and the memory foam layers help with posture and coolness factor.
What is latex?
Latex mattresses are made of natural latex - not synthetic materials. These mattresses are beneficial for back, side and stomach sleepers.
What Are Innerspring Mattresses Made Of?
Innerspring mattresses come in two different styles
1. Open Coil
2. Individually Pocket Springs
The base of innerspring mattresses consist of steel coil springs for support. The quilting on top of the mattress can range in color, coolness options and is typically made out of cotton blend fabrics.
FUN FACT: When it comes to coils, the number of coils does not always mean you'll have the same level of comfort from one mattress to another. However, the number of coils do help reduce motion transfer and make a difference in the level of support a mattress has.
Depending on the manufacturer innerspring mattresses may sometimes include other types of foam, including memory foam, gel memory foam, latex materials. Innerspring mattresses also have edge support . This consists of thick metal rods or foam inserts that make the edge of the bed comfortable enough to sit and sleep on.
