Mattresses do not last forever. There are great options out there now that will carry you through many happy sleepful years yet none of them last forever. Typically, if you are sleeping on a conventional mattress you should be looking around for a new one every 8-10 years.When you get your new Sleepys Warranty mattress you will wonder what took you so long to make the change!
Why change out your mattress?
1- Funk in the junk
There is just a funk when it comes to mattresses. You can cover them with protective covers and flip those babies (although most new ones do not require the old school flipping just rotating from head to toe) to your heart’s desire but one day it will happen…”Mattress funk”. You will wake up and realize you just simply need to be on the “out with the old and in with the new” page.
2- My Aching Back
Maybe your back is beginning to ache. This is a sure fire sign you need a new mattress set! With the amazing variety of options available you can sleep like a baby again at the flick of your wallet.
Are you downsizing your life? You might not need your king sized bed any longer or your queen bee bed. Maybe you need to conserve space because you are moving into your new “tiny home”…those are all the rage now.
Maybe it is time to graduate to your new big girl/boy bed. You are getting married or moving out from your mom and dad’s home. This is the perfect time to make your mattress move.
5- Kid Wear and Tear
Let’s face it…kids are just hard on things and a mattress is no exception. Maybe it is time to stop handing down that mattress to the next luck recipient and go for the gold! Get a new mattress for the kiddies.
Whatever the reason is, there is always a good reason. Evaluate what your future mattress needs are and take the plunge.
What to do with your old mattress
1- Landfill Garbage
Here is your first option…a landfill. You can haul that monster to the landfill and be done. Millions have chosen this easy option and really…who is judging? For a small fee even, your garbage professional can take that old wreck off your hands. When you buy a new mattress and have it delivered, chances are the delivery person will haul your old one to the curb for you, it doesn’t hurt to ask.
You actually can reuse or recycle your mattress but call around. Pretty much all of the materials used to make a mattress are recyclable…even if you have to tear it apart and separately recycle the pieces, it is worth it to give it a try!
Don’t just collect old mattresses in your garage! If it wasn’t good enough for you, get rid of it.
