Know when it’s time
The most important thing about choosing a mattress is making sure you’re doing it often enough. Sales associates might urge you to replace your mattress every five to seven years, but Michael Magnuson, CEO of goodbed.com, an independent mattress review website, told Good Housekeeping a good mattress should last at least eight to 10 years. Signs you might want to get shopping sooner than later include lumps or bumps (or worse, an imprint of your body), back pain, or coils you can feel with your hand. To make your mattress last longer, vacuum regularly to keep allergens at bay, flip or turn the mattress once a year, and invest in a padded mattress cover.
