A. When was the last time you thought about your mattress? Many of us forget that our mattresses are the most utilized piece of furniture we own. Listed below are a few hints that indicate it's time to start thinking about renewing your sleep surface.
It might be time to replace your sleep set if,
1. You bought your current mattress over 8 to 10 years ago.
The average life span of a quality mattress is eight to ten years. Mattresses older than that suffer from deteriorating comfort features and diminished support capabilities.
2. The middle third or the sides of the mattress are sagging, making you roll towards your partner
Due to prolonged usage of the mattress one may feel a gap in the mid one third region of the mattress and your body this is known as mattress sagging, this is a common problem because the heaviest part of the body rests on this region of the mattress
3. You wake up feeling more tired than when you went to sleep.
Most consumers wait too long to replace their mattresses. If you don't wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated - or if you feel any pain or discomfort - you've definitely waited too long.
4. The couch feels more comfortable than your bed.
Concentrate on the feel of your mattress. Do you feel coils or bumps? Your body needs a smooth comfortable sleep surface to get a regenerative night's sleep. Your mattress should enable you to sleep through the night with minimal tossing and turning.
5. Your mattress looks worn and uneven.
Inspect your mattress regularly for sags and imprints. If your mattress appears uneven or worn and frayed, maybe its time to start shopping! The upholstery layers in all mattresses compress over time. For optimal performance, be sure to rotate your mattress occasionally to extend its durability and renew its comfort.If you "inherited" your mattress from a family member or friend, chances are you need to replace it now.
6. You've taken your mattress for granted.
Mattresses are the most used yet most ignored piece of furniture in the house. Pay attention to your mattress. Do you hear creaks and groans? Do you notice the surface sags or indents in certain areas and not in others? The condition of your mattress may come as a surprise, once you take a close look.
A. Yes! A good base is as important as a good mattress! It acts much like a large shock absorber, taking a lot of the nightly wear and tear and it contributes to your comfort and support. Don't put a new mattress on an inappropriate base. When you select the mattress, purchase its companion base. The two are designed to work best together.
A. The Better Sleep Council advises consumers to buy the highest quality bedding they can afford, then replace old bedding every 8-10 years. After this many years, even the best bedding may no longer provide the comfort and support you deserve.
A. Focus on finding a sleep set that satisfies your comfort preference first, then your quality preference. To do so, always shop wearing comfortable clothes and shoes that can easily be removed for lying down. Take your time and don't be shy. You can't judge support and comfort by sitting on an edge or lying down for just a few seconds. Lie on the bed the way that you sleep, and if you sleep with a partner, try shopping with them so you can decide together. Shop at a store that you know and trust, and offers services you desire. Read as much information about the sleep set that is available. Remember, buy the best bed that you can afford. You can always find "bargain bedding," but it's no bargain if you can't get a good night's sleep!
A. No, the design and manufacturing of bedding has changed dramatically -- even over the last few years! Innerspring technology has improved, new "comfort" upholstery materials have been developed, and comfort choices have been expanded to give consumers a greater selection! Today's box springs are more durable, with jetlock and Dynaflex modules that are built into all of our box springs.
A. No! Any sleep sets you purchase from us offer correct support regardless of comfort level or price. Whether our mattress is soft or hard, it will give you the same correct back support you need.
A. For any back problem we suggest that you consult a doctor. A mattress can play a key role in providing the right support. While sleeping or lying down, your back bone should be kept straight to minimise any discomfort. All our mattresses ensure that this is achieved. In that sense all our mattresses are medical mattresses. It is up to you to choose your preferred feel.
A. No mattress can cure a back problem unless it is caused entirely due to inadequate support while sleeping. Our mattresses ensure adequate support thereby ensuring that no back discomfort is caused due to lack of support.
A. It is always better this way, because:
The feeling you experience at the showroom is a combined effect of the mattress and the base used to keep the mattress. It is the effect of the complete set. If you purchase the mattress alone one cannot assure you of the same feeling.
Certain bases are made specially to suit the mattresses, like the suspension system of a car specially made for that particular car. So without the particular base one cannot assure the same comfort
Most warranties are applicable only if the mattresses are bought along with the bases.
Buying a mattress alone is like buying only the house and not the foundation.
