3 Health Risks Of An Old Mattress

We sleep for 1/3 of our life and our mattress has a huge impact on sleep quality and health. We found the top 3 three things that rob you of Zzz’s and the best solutions!

?️Sleep Deprivation?️

Deep sleep is a key component in heart health. Having deep, long sleep lowers our heart rate and blood pressure and allows the body to reset itself. If you’re tossing and turning all night or unable to fall and stay asleep your mattress might be causing the problem.

According to the National Center for Biotechnology Information “The cumulative long-term effects of sleep loss and sleep disorders have been associated with a wide range of deleterious health consequences including an increased risk of hypertension, diabetes, obesity, depression, heart attack, and stroke. After decades of research, the case can be confidently made that sleep loss and sleep disorders have profound and widespread effects on human health.”

Sleep health doesn’t only apply to adults. The National Sleep Foundation reported “Recent research has shown that too little sleep earlier in life could take its toll as well. For example, in one study, adolescents who didn’t sleep well were at greater risk for developing cardiovascular problems. Those teens had higher cholesterol levels, a higher body mass index, larger waist sizes, higher blood pressure, and an increased risk of hypertension. It’s easy to see how these alterations in childhood health could snowball into major concerns later on, and why it’s important to protect sleep at every age.”

If you’re experiencing pain with your mattress there are 4 main culprits. Your mattress is too soft, too hard, isn’t supportive enough or is worn down and sagging.

To find your ideal mattress first consider your sleeping position. Side sleepers do well on soft mattresses. Medium Mattresses are best for combination sleepers and firm mattresses are good for stomach sleepers.

Firmness and support are two separate components that are evaluated differently. Support is defined as how well the mattress keeps your spine in alignment. To get help decoding mattress myths try each bed at Discount Mattress Lady until you find one that’s juuuust right!


Did you know some allergies can be caused by dust, the feces from mites and dead skin cells that have sunk into your mattress? Mold and mildew and also build-up inside a mattress as well as pillows.

Livescience.com reported “According to materials published by Ohio State University, a typical used mattress may have 100,000 to 10 million mites inside. Ten percent of the weight of a two-year-old pillow can be composed of dead mites and their droppings. Mites prefer warm, moist surroundings such as the inside of a mattress when someone is on it. One of their favorite foods is dead skin, and people shed about one fifth of an ounce of the stuff every week, some of which surely ends up flaking into your mattress.”

If you’re noticing allergies increasing at night or first thing in the morning and have itchy or watery eyes, sneezing, skin patches or a stuffy nose it may be time for a new mattress.
