How Sleeping on the Wrong Mattress Can Impact Your Health

Whether you’re living in an apartment, a house, or a retirement community, one of the most important things you can have among your furnishings is the right kind of mattress. With a third of your life spent sleeping, you’re mattress should provide sufficient support so you can sleep comfortably and wake rested. When you don’t have the right mattress, you might find yourself facing some of the following problems.

Increased Stress
Many people agree that a medium-firm mattress is preferable to a softer one. Thanks to the added back support, many people who sleep on a medium-firm mattress feel less nervous, irritable, and headache-prone throughout their daily activities. On the other hand, an older, softer mattress can lead to increased stress due to weaker back support.

Allergic Reactions
The older the mattress, the likelier it is that it will get infested with dust mites, which feed off of dead skin cells. As they accumulate over time, skin cells become harder to clean from sheets, quilts, bed spreads, pillows, and mattresses. If you have asthma, or if you’re one of the millions of Americans who are allergic to mites, this can become a serious problem. You could try to clean mites from your old, soft, dusty mattress, but it’s likely you’ll be more comfortable if you get a new, clean mattress.

Troubled Sleep
If you spend your nights tossing and turning, chances are you’re not getting very good sleep. Oftentimes, when people are constantly repositioning themselves in their sleep, it’s due to a weak, worn mattress that fails to provide the needed support. This can lead to sleep deprivation that may affect a person’s work, home, and social lives.

What Happy Customers Say

  • I have had the pleasure of doing business at the Costa Mesa Wallbeds and More on two separate occasions. I was invited to visit the store by appointment which assured me Roger’s full attention and respect for my time. I was able to ask questions and see a demonstration of how to open and close the beds. We discussed what I could expect from the delivery and installation personnel. Roger was outgoing and helpful in every way. The pieces I bought are comfortable, attractive, and a great solution to space issues.

  • We were so happy to find a wall bed place so close to home – from the moment I called to ask questions to the time we went and looked and bought the staff and everyone involved was wonderful. The time it took to get it and the delivery and set up was wonderful. I would do it again.
