A hybrid mattress is an excellent example of how blending the old and new can create something superior. Combining the classic spring mattress design and the new unique foam technology creates a hybrid multi-layered mattress, combining springs and multiple foam layers. To give a supportive, comfortable sleeping experience that is perfect for every kind of sleeper.
However, as they say, nothing lasts forever, which raises the question, how long hybrid mattresses last? In this blog, we will answer that question and a few more.
How long do hybrid mattresses last?
The lifespan of a hybrid mattress can vary, but on average they last between 7-10 years with proper care and maintenance. The life of a hybrid mattress depends heavily on the quality of the material the mattress was made from in the first place. Some are made from a few thin layers of foam (2 inches are required to give minimum support). In contrast, others are made from multiple layers to provide extra cushioning, weight distribution, and support and to give a superior night’s sleep. Overall, the more layers and better the quality of the material used to create the mattress, the longer it is likely to last. A budget mattress with minimum 2-inch support will frequently show signs of wear and need replacing after only six years.
The hybrid bamboo mattress is an excellent example of a quality mattress and one of the world’s most advanced and breathable bamboo mattresses. It combines six layers, including the anti-slip base layer, multi-zonal springs layer, and OrthAlign™ foam layer, to create a mattress that gives the maximum support and comfort for a blissful night’s sleep.
How you can extend the life of your mattress?
There are several ways to extend the life of your mattress, including:
1. Using a mattress protector: A mattress protector can help protect your mattress from spills, stains, and allergens, keeping it in good condition for longer.
2. Rotating the mattress: Rotating your mattress regularly can help distribute wear and tear evenly, which can extend its lifespan.
3. Avoid jumping or standing on the mattress: Jumping or standing on your mattress can damage the internal structure and shorten its lifespan.
4. Not using it excessively: Using the mattress excessively can wear it down faster.
5. Maintaining proper hygiene: Keeping the mattress clean and dust-free can prevent the accumulation of dust mites and other allergens, which can shorten its lifespan.
6. Proper foundation: Using the right foundation and frame can prevent sagging and wear on the mattress.
How do you know when it is time to replace your hybrid mattress?
Often the signs of a tired mattress are subtle at first. It can start with a bad night’s sleep or two and a few new aches and twinges here and there. Here are some clues to look for:
Losing shape and support
When mattresses have seen better days often start to lose their shape, this can be either in the middle or even on the edges and can mean that your weight is no longer evenly distributed. Your body is not sufficiently supported while you sleep, leading to aches and pains and a restless night’s sleep.
A slight smell
As we sleep, we can produce moisture which can be absorbed into the mattress. Over time this can be the perfect place for mildew to grow. This mildew can, in time, cause a health risk, and aggravating allergies is not a pleasant way to spend a night.
If you struggle to get to sleep or you wake up during the night, it is well worth looking at your mattresses. If it is no longer giving your body the support and comfort it needs to relax and refresh itself, it is time to say a fond farewell and get a new one.
