They say the average person changes their mattress every 7-10 years, but did you know that the life span can be altered depending on the material or mattress you choose and how you care for it.
To help guide our customers we have taken the time to do the research and we have found a chart that summarizes performance and durability ratings for the most popular mattress types.
|Average Lifespan||5.5 – 6.5 years||6 – 7 years||7.5 – 8.5 years||6.5 – 7.5 years|
|Durability Rating||Poor to fair||Fair to good||Good to very good||Fair to good|

Although many people now shop online for convenience, we have noticed that when customers come into our showroom, they use the knee test or hand push to find the perfect mattress. However, although your knee maybe comfy for 30 seconds, the only way to truly know if you have found your mattress paradise is to jump on and get comfy.
Our belief is that there is no other way when it comes to deciding on something so important.
In regards to caring for your new mattress, there are videos on TikTok & YouTube of all the different ways plus cleaning routines people are now using for their mattresses. We recommend just the use of protective covers and following the manufactures care guidelines will always help.
