Have you noticed that your mattress is beginning to sag or that your pillows aren’t retaining their plushness? All of your bedding products have a lifespan, and it’s important to recognize when yours are reaching the end of theirs. Quality sleep is essential for healthy living, and you want to feel good every time you climb into bed. Knowing when to replace pillows, comforters, and more will ensure you always wake up refreshed and have a bedroom you love walking into.
If you aren’t sure where to begin, think back on how long you’ve owned the following:
- Mattress: According to the National Sleep Foundation®, you should replace your mattress every eight to 10 years if it’s a quality luxury product. For run-of-the-mill mattresses, consider replacing them every five years. Tell-tale signs that a mattress is reaching its end are if it’s sagging in the middle or sides and if you notice you’re suddenly waking up stiff and not sleeping well.
- Pillows: Pillows absorb a significant amount of oils, dust, and microscopic materials that you’re pressing your head into every night. Coupled with the fact that they simply begin giving up support, you’ll notice relatively easily when it’s time to retire them. Quality pillows typically last one to two years; luxury products, however, such as true down pillows, may last longer. If you’re replacing your mattress, consider upgrading your pillows too for a fresh start.
- Bedding: An excellent set of sheets and comforter not only give your bedroom personality but also play a key role in your quality of sleep. On average, sheets last two years. Comforters, however, have a significantly longer lifespan, lasting up to 20 years. It’s best to invest in quality products from reputable brands to get these results.
