FAQ

  • How do I know it’s time to replace my mattress?

    According to all experts and relevant studies, a mattress’ life expectancy does not exceed 5-7 years of daily use. Nevertheless, the mattress behavior can be affected by other factors as well such as body weight alterations, poor manufacturing quality, current condition etc.

    Regardless of the mattress’ age, you should seriously consider its immediate replacement if:
    • You are experiencing numb limbs when waking up in the morning
    • You do not wake up fresh
    • You do not get the same quality sleep you originally enjoyed
    • You get funny odors from your mattress
    • Your mattress is worn out.
    • …in general you do not enjoy your sleep!

    Do you remember the last time you enjoyed a restful quality sleep? Was it a long time ago and not even in your own bed? Could it be in a hotel or the guestroom of a friend? Or even in your favorite couch?

    • Width: measure the distance between the inner sides of the two crossbeams of the bed frame.
    • Length: measure the distance between the inner sides of the headboard and the footboard
    • Depth: measure the distance between the upper edge of the crossbeam and the surface that the mattress will be placed on (slat frame or boards)
