By Brian, October 10, 2017

Humans spend half of their lives sleeping, and if we talk about sleeping, your best friend is your bed.

 

Most of us are in bed all day. We normally spend 4-8 hours of sleep each night. 30 minutes – 3 hours of nap plus the occasional lazy moments where you just lay on your bed and watch Netflix for hours and hours.

Maybe now, you’re also in your bed, scrolling through your phone or laptop while reading this.While lying there in your bed, can you feel your mattress starting to feel a little bit wobbly or itchy? Have you ever thought of when you will change your mattress?

Most of the people say you can keep a mattress for 5 to 10 years or as long as you feel comfortable by the mattress itself, or can you?

The following are the key signs that it’s time to replace your mattress:

  • Your mattress is already showing signs of visible wear and tear
  • Your mattress already feels like a home for dust mites, allergens, germs, and bedbugs
  • Your mattress is more than 8 years old (as recommended by the Sleep Council)

The good thing is you can keep a long-lasting mattress by choosing the right type. There are a lot of types of mattresses: innerspring, latex, hybrid and memory foam.

Hybrid and latex mattresses

Hybrid and latex mattresses are a better choice than innerspring because they are way comfortable to sleep in.On the other hand, these are also slightly uncomfortable to use because of its sensitivity in temperature.

Bamboo mattress

In choosing reliable mattresses, a lot of people prefer bamboo mattress or the memory-foam mattresses than the normal soft mattresses. A lot has been satisfied by memory foam mattresses which gives our body comfort and pressure relief besides that it is also durable and a healthy mattress.

Bamboo mattressesare made from memory foam.It helps in getting rid ofthe back pain issues that we constantly wake upwith.

Since bamboo mattresses are made from bamboo charcoal memory foam, it is 3x better than soft mattresses. It relieves pressure and improves airflow of the body and even repels odor anddust mites.

As for the price, you will be surprised to find that a lot of soft luxury mattresses are more expensive than bamboo memory foam mattresses.

A good mattress should be made from all natural resources crafted into a luxurious mattress for a cleaner and better sleep. So if you’re really interested in buying durable and long-lasting mattresses, bamboo mattresses are highly recommended.
