Spring is the perfect season to think about replacing worn-out items. In
the spirit of spring cleaning, take a look around your bedroom and consider
how long you’ve had various items. If your mattress, pillows, or
sheets are aging poorly, you can head over to the local
mattress store to refresh your bedroom. A new bed and new bedding can make a world of
difference for the quality of your sleep.
The average mattress likely won’t last longer than 10 years, unless
it’s located in a rarely used guestroom. Yours may have a shorter
lifespan, depending on the materials it’s made from and the type
of usage it gets. Memory foam mattresses tend to last around seven years,
and latex beds can usually last for eight. Other factors do apply, however.
If you have a sleep partner, the extra stress on the mattress can wear
it out faster. People with heavier body types are likely to wear out a
mattress faster too, especially if it’s a memory foam bed. Even
if you aren’t sure how old your mattress is, it’s definitely
time to replace it if it’s no longer comfortable.
High-quality pillows that are well taken care of can last for quite a few
years, but most pillows will only last one to two years before they need
to be replaced. Pillows have such a short lifespan because they are exposed
to hair, dead skin cells, and body oil every single night. Pillows are also
attractive homes for dust mites, which are an allergen for many people.
Sheets tend to hold their quality and comfort for about two years. After
this point, the fibers break down. You’ll notice that the sheets
look worn, and they won’t offer a comfortable feel any longer. Consider
purchasing multiple sets of high-quality sheets. Rotating their turn on
the bed will help your sheets last longer.
