Is It Time For A New Mattress?

Signs that your mattress is slacking

Your mattress should be in your corner when it comes to comfort. If you’re waking up feeling sore, stiff or sweating in your sleep, it’s probably time for an upgrade. No mattress is meant to last forever. Sagging, creaking, and lumpy mattresses do no favors for your body or hygiene. Your sleeping health is linked to your overall health and a worthy mattress goes a long way to improving both.

Getting the best of dreamland

We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so it makes little sense to replace your mattress with the frequency of a used car. Keep your sleep cool and take the pressure off your body with a mattress that’s doing you a service. 10 years is average lifespan of a mattress. Stacking mattress toppers and avoiding lumpy mattress areas is hardly a solution. Old mattresses gain weight from sweat and skins cells over the years. This also a perfect place for dust mites and mold spores to call home. Invest in yourself, prevent allergens and replace your old mattress.

Step up your mattress game

When it’s time, it’s time. Take care of yourself while you’re in dreamland with a mattress that’s worthy. Not sure where to start? Visit a PureSleep Mattress Store and experience our Rest Assured Test to discover your mattress match with ease.
