Sleep is a non-negotiable component of a healthy lifestyle. It helps repair our bodies, process our thoughts, and rejuvenate us for the next day. As crucial as sleep is, it's surprising how often we overlook the object we spend one-third of our lives on: our mattress. In this blog post, Alabama Beds, with showrooms in Leeds and Oneonta, AL, explores how often you should change your mattress, why it matters, and how we can assist you in the process.

**The Lifespan of a Mattress**

While the exact lifespan of a mattress depends on its material, quality, and how well it's cared for, most mattresses need replacing every 7 to 10 years. Over time, mattresses can sag, lose their support and comfort, and even harbor allergens, all of which can affect your sleep quality and overall health.

**Why It's Essential to Change Your Mattress**

1. **Support and Comfort:** Over time, mattresses lose their ability to provide the necessary support and comfort. This can lead to aches, pains, and sleepless nights.

2. **Hygiene:** Old mattresses can become a breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria, and mold. These can trigger allergies and respiratory issues, disturbing your sleep.

3. **Sleep Quality:** A comfortable and supportive mattress is integral to good sleep. An old, uncomfortable mattress can prevent you from achieving deep, restorative sleep.
