Furniture Extreme, a Local Area Ashley Furniture Store, Announces the Importance of Replacing an Old Mattress

Furniture Extreme, a popular furniture store in Calgary, has announced the importance of replacing old, worn mattresses.

Calgary, Alberta - March, 2017 - The Ashley furniture store, Furniture Extreme, has announced the importance of replacing old mattresses. As mattresses age, they lose their support and can harbor harmful pests and allergens.

Loses Support

Over time, a mattress's support structure begins to break down. Depending on the quality of the mattress and how well it was maintained, mattress can last between six to ten years. As the mattress reaches the end of its lifespan, it will start to sag, dip, or develop painful lumps.

Lost support can lead to several unpleasant health issues, including:

  • Back and neck pain
  • Morning stiffness
  • Painful pressure points
  • Tossing and turning
  • Poor sleep

Dirt and Allergen Accumulation

Mattresses are notoriously difficult to clean, if not impossible. They can act like sponges for sweat, oils, and dead skin. Due to the excess of moisture and warmth within older mattresses, dust mites can thrive, leading to new or worsening allergies.

If an infestation booms, the mites also shed their skin and leave behind other unsavory wastes. In fact, older mattress can weigh more than new ones because of this accumulation.

Tips to Prolong the Life of a Mattress

Prolonging the life of a mattress requires regular maintenance. To get the most use out of a new mattress, do the following:

  • Rotate, or flip, the mattress every couple of months to prevent body impressions.
  • Invest in a high-quality mattress pad to reduce dirt and mite accumulation.
  • Vacuum, or steam clean the mattress bi-annually and inspect for damages.
