“ Oh sleep! It is a gentle thing. Beloved from pole to pole! ”
A good night’s sleep determines the quality of work and life. And if you are having problems with sleep you might as well take some time to analyse your mattress. ……Okay! Not at all exaggerating!
# “Ooh! Why should I change my mattress?”
Ask yourself the following questions.
- Is my mattress more than 10 years old?
- Is the room smelling of mattress?
- Am I feeling bumps or metal under my mattress?
- Is the mattress skin torn or mildew laden?
- Do I feel awkward when a guest or a neighbor see my mattress?
- Do I have bouts of itches, sneezing or rashes at night?
- Do I mostly wake up with a neck pain or back pain?
- Is the mattress sagging or uneven?
If your answers to most of the questions are “yes” then you urgently need to change your mattress. It has been worn out over the years and filled with dust mites, fungus, and moisture. You should get rid of the unhygienic mattress and buy a new one. Mattresses deteriorate over time, and its lifespan depends on its usage, quality and care.

This type of mattress is soft and good at relieving pressure on painful joints, but is usually more expensive than spring mattress. Memory foam mattresses correspond to the sleeper’s shape and weight. People with orthopedic issues can go in for specialized mattresses in this variety. These mattresses also give warmth to the body.
Latex mattresses are made out of latex rubber. Natural latex mattresses are mostly preferred. They have all the advantages of a foam mattress but are slightly heavier, They are also cooler than the memory foam mattress. They last longer than the spring mattress. They are naturally anti dust mite and anti allergen. They can last longer than 10 years. So they are costlier than memory foam mattresses.

- A combination of both latex and foam materials are also used to give you the best of both the worlds.
