According to The International Sleep Products Association, 10.8 years is the average life of a mattress and box spring. There are 312 million people in the U.S. today. Together, these numbers mean that around 48 million mattresses and/or box springs are sent to landfills every year. These estimates do not include units from hotels or dormitories, which are replaced more frequently.
When you are considering purchasing a new mattress, it is important to be knowledgeable on the different types of mattresses available, so that you can be content with one that will provide better support for you back and a better sleep. While a "bouncy" mattress may be comfortable for relaxing on while watching television, beds with too much bounce in them often do not offer the resistance of firmness against your body while you sleep. This usually leaves you sleeping on your back or neck incorrectly and, ultimately, waking up stiff and sore. Not having the correct support underneath you to keep your spine, head, and neck in proper alignment while you sleep, can often cause you to awaken with headaches and stiffened joints.
It is essential that hospital beds are in a position that allows a patient to see a television and preferably near a bathroom, away from draughts or a window.
An innerspring mattress begins with a top layer often called the 'mattress style'. Basically, you have various surface fabrics ranging from synthetic nylon, through to Damask, wool, silk, cashmere, alpaca etc. The more expensive the material, the more expensive the mattress. In all honesty you're paying for how the mattress looks; one covered with a synthetic material is just as good and will last as long as one covered in the finest silk. You have to ask yourself is it worth paying for how something looks when that something is always going to be covered.
