Then you need to decide whether you want springs, memory foam, a mix of both or something else completely!

Mattress myths 

This weeks blog is all about busting some well known mattress myths. You spend a huge amount of your life in your beds Wigan, so you need to make sure that your mattress is working for you. 

"You need to replace your mattress every 8 years."

We understand where people are coming from when they say this, but it isn't necessarily true.  We do recommend changing your mattress every 7 to 10 years. But, it all depends on how much comfort and support you're getting from it. If you're waking up and not feeling as good as you used too, then you know it's time to replace it. 

"The mattress needs to be flipped every few months to keep it in a good condition."

Most mattresses now are made to be one sided which means it's pointless to flip it. However, we do recommended rotating the mattress once a month for the first six months, then every few months after that. This will stop the mattress being imprinted in, especially when it's very new. 

"You won't move as much on a new, comfortable mattress."

This is partly true. We tend to move around whilst we're asleep in order to help reduce pressure point pain. As well as to help reduce the stress and strain in our back/neck. If you have a mattress suited to your needs then you shouldn't move as much since you're already getting the stress and relief off your pressure points.
