Time to Update: Buying a New Mattress
There comes a time in everyone’s life when they have to face the fact that buying a new mattress is an absolute necessity. We all know the horror stories and hassles that we have been told that come along with getting a new mattress. But, these days, all that is a thing of the past. At eLuxury, we have made buying a new mattress online easy, quick, and absolutely not risky or a hassle at all! So the question remains: Is it time to upgrade? Below are some signs that it may be the right time for buying a new mattress!
Allergies and Your Old Mattress
Are you waking up with a stuffy nose, increased asthma symptoms, or allergy issues in general? That could be a good indicator that it’s time to get a new mattress. Dust mites are one of the leading causes of allergens and they thrive in mattresses and bedding. The more you toss and turn at night, the more those little bad boys get stirred up. If you are having a lot of these issues, it may be a pressing health issue. Sleeping with years of allergens and dust mites that have built up on your old mattress is definitely not good for you! If you are having these issues, buying a new mattress is one of the few ways to really fix this problem once and for all!
Tired? It might be your mattress!
Are you finding yourself sleep deprived and in a constant zombie-like state? This is a great indicator that it’s time to go out with the old and in with the new. If you are not sleeping well, there are number of things that you could be doing wrong (not eating right, drinking too caffeine) but having an old and uncomfortable mattress could very well be causing a lot of your issues. We have had customers over the years that tried every trick in the book to get better sleep and when they finally broke down and tried one of our Gel Memory Foam mattresses, they finally got the sleep that they were hoping for!
True Lifespan of your mattress
What president was in office when you bought your mattress? Were cell phones a “thing” yet? Just how old is this thing? Your mattress itself will give you signs that it is ready to retire. If you are noticing large dips, sagging, or indentations where you are sleeping, it is a sign that the structural integrity of the mattress is starting to give. These issues with a mattress can cause back pain and generally cause your body to not be getting the rest that you need….and you may not even realize it! If your mattress is sagging, and causing you to be dragging, you need a new mattress that you can start bragging about (Rhyming absolutely intended!).
One lump or two? How about none!
Your mattress should not have any visible lumps. This indicates that the padding has shifted over time. Those lovely mattress lumps could be soft to the touch, but sleeping on a lumpy mattress can cause pressure points that shouldn’t be there. This can cause you pains in the back, hips, joints, and cause a lack of spinal alignment. All of which are no good and lead to some seriously bad sleep.
Change Your Mattress to Fit Your New Lifestyle
Life events can also affect how much you need a new mattress. If you were single but just recently tied the knot, maybe it’s time to ditch that full size mattress and roll into a queen or a king size. Rolling into your partner or not having enough room to stretch out can be detrimental to your sleep habits. Learning to sleep with another person can be challenging, so it’s best to learn while both of you have enough space. We all love to cuddle, but sometimes we need a break….and our own side of the bed!
With Kids Come New Needs!
And, what happens when you step into the wonderful world of parenting? That old coil spring mattress is not going to cut it when you or your partner is 6 months pregnant. Choosing a bed that is a memory foam or latex combo bed will allow her to sleep on her side more comfortably but still have the support a growing belly needs. These days it is so easy to get a new, affordable mattress shipped right to your door; Why make her sleep on that old thing! If your mattress is old and worn out, buying a new mattress is a vital part of a growing family!
How to Responsibly Get Rid of That Old Mattress
If you are reading this and thinking one or more of those things on this list sounds like your life but you are worried about what to do with your old mattress, don’t worry. There are so many ways to be responsible and environmentally friendly. You can recycle or repurpose, adding it on freecycle or getting in touch with a mattress recycling company. You could donate it to a needy family if it’s still in decent condition.
