How To Tell If Your Mattress Should Be Disposed – And How To Do It!

So have you noticed that your back is a little sore after a night’s sleep? Realising that your mattress is lumpy and saggy? Well, these are the clear signs you should be looking for when it comes to your bed. When they these signs arise, the hunt for a new mattress begins. From there, we will tell you what to do when you have that old mattress in your Sydney home.

1- You are having back pains

There is one of the first – and clearest signs that your mattress is on its way out. When your back is beginning to have pains and niggles when you get up in the morning, it is a signal to your mattress isn’t giving you the support you need. The time for looking for a new one begins.

2- Your bed is full of lumps 

Sometimes you don’t have to feel your mattress to know that it is having problems. Sometimes the image enough is a clear indication. When you notice clear and evident lumps in your bed, that means that time is up. The mattress has reached the peak of its comfortability, and it is time to get it disposed of.

3- Are you dipping into your mattress?

When you lie on your mattress, do you feel your back just dip right in? Well if you do, that means that all the support and springs in your bed are pretty much over. Your body can no longer be supported, and you are risking your back if you keep sleeping on it.

4- You can’t remember the last time you bought a mattress 

Mattresses, just like all other products, have a lifespan in which at one point they are not going to work anymore. One way to check if this is the case is to remember when you purchased your mattress. If you can’t, it’s probably so far back that it is old enough. Time to look for the next mattress that is going to make the difference for your lifestyle.

What Do You Do When Your Mattress Is Too Old?

Have you noticed any of these signs? Well, this a good indication that the hunt for a new mattress begins. But what to do with your old one? There are two schools of thought here: you can leave it by the front of your home for pickup in the next rubbish collection day, or you can look to get it removed by a rubbish removal professional. The problem with leaving it to the council collection is that they might reject it. But a professional mattress removal service will take it regardless of its condition.
