It's easy to underestimate the impact of a good mattress on our sleep and overall health. But what happens when your mattress is not up to the mark? A bad mattress can have a profound effect on your wellbeing. In this post, Alabama Beds, with locations in Leeds and Oneonta, AL, shares the signs of a bad mattress and how we can help you find a better sleep solution.

**Signs of a Bad Mattress**

1. **Visible Wear and Tear:** Look for obvious signs like sagging, lumps, or protruding springs. These are clear indicators that your mattress is no longer providing the support you need.

2. **Discomfort:** If you wake up with stiffness, numbness, aches, or pains, your mattress may be the culprit. A good mattress should support your body and alleviate pressure points.

3. **Restless Nights:** If you're tossing and turning, waking up often during the night, or finding it hard to fall asleep, your mattress might be to blame.

4. **Allergy Symptoms:** Old mattresses can become a breeding ground for dust mites and allergens, leading to increased allergy symptoms.

5. **Feeling Better Elsewhere:** If you consistently sleep better on a different bed, such as a hotel mattress or even a couch, it's a good sign your current mattress is not up to scratch.
