Is It Time? When to replace a mattress or pillow

We spend hours in our beds every day, but don’t often think about when it’s time for a new sleeping environment. So how do you know when it’s time to replace a mattress or pillow?

The answer isn’t always obvious, especially considering that every mattress and pillow is different and it depends on how and where it’s being used. For instance, the mattress and pillows in your master bedroom will likely wear out quicker than ones in the guest room.

Here are a few ways to know it’s time for a new mattress:

  • If your mattress is approaching the 10 year anniversary.
  • If you’re waking up feeling stiff or experiencing out of the ordinary neck and back pain.
  • If your mattress looks old with visible dips, sags or coils.
  • If your mattress feels more comfortable in some spots than others.
  • If you can feel the coils or wires through the mattress, or feel pressure points when sleeping that you hadn’t experienced before.
  • If your mattress makes noise when you move around.
  • If you’re sleeping better when you’re away from home, sleeping in the guest room, or sleeping on the sofa.

Here are a few ways to know it’s time for a new pillow:

  • If your pillow has exceeded the two-year anniversary.
  • If you do not use and frequently wash a pillow protector.
  • If your foam pillow is lumpy or bumpy.
  • If your feather pillow needs to be punched or fluffed up nightly for support.
  • If your pillow has an odor.
  • If you have to fold your pillow in half to achieve the comfort and support you used to have.
