Many people often consider updating their bedrooms every few years but not always their mattresses. Without necessarily considering it, a mattress is something that use every single day of your life and often take for granted. So sure a mattress should be something you invest in? So, why not change your mattress now?
As you get older, you are more than likely to experience back pain and we all blame ourselves instead of blaming the mattress that we rest on for at least 196 hours a month! It’s not you, it could be your mattress. At Cyprus Mattresses we are at the forefront of making you feel comfortable whilst you’re sleeping. Each one of our mattresses are manufactured differently so that we can tailor the best one for you and your back. From sprung mattresses to foam mattresses, nobody is left out at Cyprus Mattresses. How do you know when it’s time to say goodbye to your mattress?
- Loud springs: If your springs in your mattress are noisy or start to squeak when you move it is more than likely a sign that the coils within it are tired and need some tlc!
- Stiff muscles: Waking up sore? It might be your 11 year old mattress. Because of the way our body changes, it can affect the shape and sturdiness of our mattress.
- Wear and tear: If you can feel the coils through the mattress or can see signs of rips and lumps, it’s time to depart. If you already have a mattress topper, this may need replacing also. All mattresses are subject to wear and tear, even the large double mattresses!
Making your mattress last
Not everyone has the ability to purchase a brand-new mattress when there’s feels slightly worn. So, giving it some TLC might be just what it needs. Mattress toppers, rotation of the mattress itself or getting it cleaned are a few of the options that can help you in the meantime.
- Rotation: Rotating your mattress every 3 to 6 months could prevent wear and tear.
- Air: We all need to breathe, even your mattress. Opening your windows in your bedroom can increase better ventilation meaning that dust particles and moisture can be extracted.
- Pets: Keeping pets off the bed can reduce the risk of claw marks and chew.
- Clean: Getting your mattress cleaned!
Knowing which size mattress to get in the first place may be the most difficult decision of them all. A double mattress, also known as a full mattress can measure from 53” wide to 75” long (depending on if you are buying UK mattresses or EU mattresses), which is ideal for a teenager for increased comfort. A queen mattress can range from 60” wide to 80” long, making it ideal for those who enjoy a lot of personal space when snoozing.
