long a mattress will last depends on several factors,
such as amount of use and original quality, but in
general, a mattress set that has been in use 5-7
years is no longer providing you
with the best comfort and support. Keep in mind that

a bigger house or getting married - may also call
for a change in your mattress.
body - as we age, our body changes. What
was once comfortable may no longer meet your changing
preferences. And the amount of space that's right
for you also changes. Make sure your mattress - and
your children's - continues to provide comfort, support,
and space as you age and they grow.

preferences and those of your partner.
also about your mattress
-A poor-quality mattress set can deteriorate quickly,
while top-quality sets can be expected to provide
comfort and support for a number of years. Mattress Outlet
representatives can help you pick out a quality set
that will last you a long time!
- A sleep set that is used nightly will lose comfort
and support faster. Improperly moving a mattress or
having children jump on the bed may damage the mattress,
causing it to wear out more quickly.
- Care - Proper care can extend the
life of a mattress. See "Taking Care of Your
Investment" for more information.
