3 Scary Reasons You Should Consider New BeddingIt’s there all the time: your bed, patiently waiting to wrap you up in peaceful dreams and waking up energized and ready for anything the day throws at you. Only, that isn’t how it happens for many people. Poor sleep, bad dreams and never getting comfortable enough to sleep well is the sad reality for millions of people. Even worse, that old mattress is making you sick and providing happy homes or innumerable creepy crawlies itching to put the bite on you. If this sounds like your life, replacing that old mattress or the entire bed may be a good idea.

1. Allergies: Mold, Mites and More OH MY

Let’s talk creepy crawlies. Your old mattress is home to some nasty ones. Every night, your sleeping self is surrounded by a sea of nasty bacteria allergens, mites and mold spores. Oh, and that stuff you are breathing in that aggravates your allergies and asthma is mite poop. The same nasty bugs, germs and fungi live in your pillows and bedding, too.

2. Welcome to the Zoo: Bed Bugs

Now these irritating allergens and irritants have new neighbors in many homes: bed bugs. Putting a mattress cover on your bed and covering pillows helps but does not get rid of the problem. Any mattress or pillows over 2 years old are guaranteed to be infested with dust mites and germs. Your best solution is getting a new mattress and pillows. Cover with pillow protectors and mattress protectors right away and you have an impervious barrier protecting your sleep and health.

3. Problems Getting Quality Sleep

Rest and proper sleep are vital for good health. The National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute reports that sleep deprivation and deficiency impairs the natural healing cycle. During sleep cycles, the body works to repair heart and blood vessels and any damage done to the body. Continued lack of proper sleep can lead to serious health conditions, including cardiac conditions.

Lack of good sleep often leaves people tired, less alert and with impaired ability to work or drive. Your mattress contributes to this if it is sagging or worn. Lack of proper support causes back pain, uncomfortable sleep and can contribute to elevated stress levels.

If any of these situations pertain to your life, it may be time to make new bedding and mattresses a part of your efforts to enjoy a healthier and more restful sleep. You will enjoy the difference a good night’s sleep can make.
