How Often Should You Rotate Your Mattress?

You’ve had your mattress for around 3 months and it is no longer providing the support you thought you had paid for. What gives? According to most experts, rotating your mattress regularly is one of the easiest ways to prolong its lifespan and ensure you are constantly receiving adequate support. In this article, we will explain the importance of taking the time to rotate your mattress and how often you should do it.

As you sleep each night, your body weight will begin to make an indentation or impression in the mattress. Without the chance to recover, your mattress will begin to lose the comfort it once provided and lead to restless nights or, even worse, cause you to wake up with aches and pain. To ensure your mattress doesn’t deteriorate quickly, it is important to regularly rotate your mattress or flip it if possible. However, modern mattresses with multiple layers may not need this to remain comfortable.

Maintaining the same sleep position each night will eventually cause your bed to wear unevenly if you don’t rotate your mattress. This will mean that you may need to invest in a new mattress prematurely even though it could have been avoided. Like with car tires, rotating your mattress allows you to provide even wear as a recovered portion of the mattress absorbs your weight.

Most mattress brands recommend rotating your mattress 180° every 3 months to maintain adequate wear. This means that you will be rotating your mattress so that what was your headboard will now be at your feet 4 times each year. During this time, you may also want to air out your mattress and sanitize it as needed to maintain a comfortable sleeping environment.
