Understanding the Reasons Your Mattress Sags

There’s nothing more annoying in life than sleeping on a dated mattress that doesn’t fully support your body throughout the night. Not only do you wake up in pain, you have a hard time falling asleep as you search for that seemingly impossible comfortable position. Fortunately, this isn’t a problem you have to deal with if you take the proper precautions. In this article, we will explore some reasons why your mattress sags and provide some ways to delay this from happening with a new mattress.

What Makes a Mattress Sag?

Like a well-worn in sofa, the materials in your mattress will start to provide more give when exposed to constant use. In many cases, most people will experience sinking in the middle of their normal sleeping position because of the weight distribution that is left there for hours at a time. For couples, this could mean sagging on their individual sides or, in some instances,  the mattress sags in the middle if they tend to “spoon” throughout the night.

Unfortunately, any weight that is constantly applied to the mattress will create normal wear and tear that doesn’t allow the mattress to provide the save give that it once had. Even the weight of a pet can drastically contribute to the creation of saggy spots in the mattress. While this is an inevitability that will require a future mattress purchase, there are some steps you can take to prolong the life of your mattress.

Minimizing the Formation of Mattress Sags

One of the easiest ways to minimize the formation of mattress sagging is to regularly flip or rotate your mattress. While it is recommended to do this every 6 months, you may be able to more evenly provide wear on the mattress by rotating it more frequently. In essence, this will allow you to create even weight distribution over time. If possible, flipping the mattress will also prolong the life cycle it has.

One other important consideration is how much support your mattress receives. If you are using the wrong box springs, there’s a good chance your mattress will begin to sink quickly and lose its support. It is important to remember that all mattresses will eventually wear down and require a replacement. However, by taking the proper precautions, you should be able to squeeze a few more years out of your mattress.
