One of the main factors to getting a good night's sleep is none other than a good ol' mattress

Complete with our pillow, cosy blankets, and something to snuggle with, settling in for the night with all these sleep essentials are what we look forward to at the end of a long and arduous day.

However, there comes a time when a mattress has reached the end of its lifespan, and needs to be replaced. Since the general rule of thumb is to replace your mattress every seven to 10 years, using it beyond this time may lead to issues that could blossom into long-term problems. 

Here are four tell-tale signs that your mattress needs replacing:

1. You hear loud creaking noises every time you get in or out of bed

If you've been sleeping on the same mattress since you were a child, it's probably too old to sleep on anymore. It might've been in great shape when you were younger, but over time, it will eventually fall prey to wear and tear. 

For example, when you start hearing those creaking noises due to its built-in springs, that's a clear sign showing it has lost its comfort and lumbar support over the years. Not to mention it gets really annoying when those springs begin poking you in the back. :/

2. You wake up feeling aches and pains in your back and neck

When certain parts of the bed get lumpier and saggier, this can cause your spine to be misaligned over time. The lack of cushioning as well as sags in the mattress may lead to lower back pain, stiff upper neck, and other aches. 

3. You find yourself sneezing more often or getting bug bites when in close proximity to the mattress

Mattresses are often huge and heavy, making it a hassle to clean all by ourselves. This makes it easier for dust mites, allergens, and dead skin cells to accumulate over the years, making it impossible for you to sleep peacefully if you have severe allergies.

Aside from that, bedbugs are an absolute nightmare to deal with, as they can be difficult to be rid of. Even having pets with fleas can potentially cause an infestation in your mattress. :O That feeling of tiny bugs crawling over your body as you sleep is unsettling, to say the least.

4. You tend to fall asleep easier anywhere else except your own bed

Unconsciously deciding to sleep on the couch or recliner any chance you get is an indicator that your mattress just isn't doing its job anymore. This also rings true if you are sharing a bed with someone else, but only one of you is unable to sleep properly. A good mattress should provide equal comfort to both sleepers.
