YOUR MATTRESS IS STARTING TO SAG
While visible rips and tears might tip anyone off, a totally intact—yet still sagging—foundation is at risk for replacement too. Drooping brought on by an uneven wear of the innerspring could be enough for you to need a new mattress. 'Mattresses should not have visible sagging of more than one inch at any point on their surface,' says Neil Kline, MD, of the American Sleep Association. While flipping your mattress might help initially, there's no coming back from body impressions or center sinking. Aim to maximize the life of your mattress by sleeping in different positions and places so that the entire surface compresses evenly. Rotating your mattress monthly for the first six months and quarterly thereafter could also help. Here's how to have the best night's sleep ever.
