The Average Lifespan of a Spring Mattress

Time ticks away for us all, and yes, that includes your mattress. But what’s the magic number?

Average Lifespan: The Stats

Most experts agree that a good quality spring mattress should last between 7 to 10 years. However, this can vary based on several factors including how well the mattress is maintained, how much weight it regularly supports, and the quality of the materials.

Variables that Affect Lifespan

Signs Your Spring Mattress Needs Replacing

Not all mattresses go out with a bang; some slowly whimper their way to the finish line. So, how do you know it’s time?

Red Flags

Should You Replace Box Spring With Mattress?

Here's where it gets intriguing. When you decide to replace your mattress, should the box spring automatically get the boot too?

Keep the Box Spring?

If your box spring isn't showing signs of wear and tear like fraying fabric or squeaking springs, it can often be kept for a new mattress.

Toss the Box Spring?

Contrarily, if your box spring is as old as the mattress you're replacing, investing in a new one could be beneficial for the overall longevity and performance of your new mattress.

Cost vs. Benefit: Is a New Mattress Worth It?

Let’s talk dollars and sense. Replacing a mattress can be expensive, but what are you really investing in?
