Your mattress has probably been with you through a lot—it’s cradled you during sleepless nights, been there when you slept like a baby, and even got you through a few dozen afternoon naps. But there comes a time when you need to part ways with your trusty friend and move on to something newer. It’s hard, but you’ll get through this.

Not sure it’s time to say good-bye to your old mattress? Here are some signs you need to part ways.
How Old is it?
High-quality mattresses do last a bit longer than their cheaper counterparts. That said, when your mattress reaches about the seven-year mark, it’s time to start evaluating its quality. Some can last for as long as ten years, but most reach roughly five to seven before they reach the point of no return.
How Are You Sleeping?
Are you completely aware of your mattress throughout the night? You really shouldn’t be. You should be asleep and comfortable and not thinking about how much you feel your mattress underneath you. But if you find that you’re tossing and turning or that your joints and spine are consistently sore or achy, it’s time to get a new one. And if you’re finding that you’re still pretty tired even after you’ve slept all night, you could be waking up quite a bit tossing and turning. If you find that you’re sleeping much better on your couch or in other beds, the mattress is likely the culprit.
You Can Hear it
Sometimes, your mattress outright tells you it’s ready to be retired. If you can hear it creaking or crunching when you’re on it, it’s very likely that its inner workings just aren’t up to par. There might be broken springs, displaced filling, and frame issues. Listen to your mattress—if it’s talking, you should probably listen to it!
You Can See it Sag When You’re Not Even in it
When you get out of bed, does it still look like somebody’s laying in it? If your mattress is sagging, it means the springs inside have broken down and aren’t giving you the support you need. This can increase your chances of having back pain and soreness throughout your body. When you look at the cost of a mattress vs. your lost productivity and exhaustion, the choice is pretty clear!
You’re Sneezing, But it’s Not Even Allergy Season
Do you feel like you have allergies year-round but no apparent explanation for it? If it’s the dead of winter and you’re still sneezing, it could be your bed. Despite using clean sheets and taking care of it after all these years, dead skin cells, mites, dander, and other allergens can become a permanent part of your mattress. Even if you’re not particularly susceptible to allergies, these irritants can certainly kick up allergy symptoms, making you feel as if you’re fighting a minor cold or sneezing more often than usual.
