If you’re considering investing in a memory foam mattress, you may wonder how long you can expect one to last.
This is an important question, as changing your mattress can be a big commitment – it takes a great deal of thought, and it’s good to be sure that the model you choose won’t wear out quickly, leaving you right back where you started.
So how long does the average memory foam mattress last, and what are the benefits of choosing this type of mattress in the first place?
Lifespan of a Memory Foam Mattress
You can expect a high quality memory foam mattress to last between eight and ten years. Of course, this will vary depending on what sort of sleeper you are – do you toss and turn, for example? – and how well your mattress is kept clean and cared for.
Because we are confident that our memory foam mattresses will stand the test of time, Dreamers Bed Centre offers many models complete with a five year guarantee, covering more than half the average mattress’s lifespan.
Top Quality Mattress Engineering
Why are memory foam mattresses so durable? Their hard-wearing nature is thanks to the superb design aspects that first went into their creation and continue to be utilised to this day.
Memory foam was first produced for NASA in the 1970s when the organisation focused on improving cushioning and protection for pilots and plane passengers upon landing.
A combination of pressure and body heat helps a memory foam mattress to mould to its user’s form, gently holding them in their preferred position – thus reducing pressure and supporting in the right areas. This helps to relieve back, neck and joint pains.
When the mattress is no longer being used, it returns to its original shape with no weakening of its supportive materials.
Other Features of Foam Mattresses
Dreamers Bed Centre also stocks medical grade foam mattresses, some of which come with a cooling function for even greater comfort. These particular models are approved by expert chiropractors and other health professionals for use by those who have medical conditions or ongoing aches and pains.
Medical grade foam mattresses do not require body heat to become shaped to the user’s form, meaning they are able to react quickly if this is required.
Dreamers Bed Centre offers a variety of memory foam mattresses, including hybrids that feature pocket springs and other design elements. If you are not sure of the exact type of mattress you require, why not come and examine our available models in person at our showroom?
