• There are many factors that determine the life of a mattress, but with proper care, a quality mattress should last about 10 years. But, remember, as with everything, you get what you pay for. I bought a mattress from IKEA that only cost $80 and it lasted me less than 2 years. It also depends on the weight of the sleeper. A heavier adult will wear out a mattress much more quickly than a child or lightweight person. Most manufacturers or retailers include a warranty when you buy a new mattress. The warranty is a good indicator of the quality of the mattress. Warranties range from 1 to 20 years usually. A decent mattress should have at least a 10 year warranty. I wouldn't look at anything below that for adult use or teen of substantial weight. You may just end up replacing it much sooner than you planned. If you look at the best brand names such as Sealy, Serta, Simmons and others, they have some good quality mattresses that come with a 20 year warranty.
  • Mattresses need to be replaced?
  • I used to have to change my futon every 4 or 5 years...
  • Change mattress? Mine looks as good as the day i bought it. It's 33 years old. Maybe some people don't keep a matress pad(quilt) on top. I've worn out 2 of those. They are cheaper than a mattress.
  • Whenever you pee on it.
  • New answer: About as often as you need to ask that question
  • Every five could extend that time if you get it steamed and vaccumed more often.
  • When there is a major cavitation in the spot where you lay, only then should you consider replacing it. I'd recommend a Tempur Pedic mattress that does not cavitate and will conform to your bodies contours. A Tempur Pedic mattress when purchased with their heavy duty frame is designed to last a life time. Sleep on one for just a single night and you may never want to ever wake up... :-D Very high customer satisfaction.
  • Good quality can last 10 years or so. Mattresses can look good even when they no longer support your back/body, though, so be careful. When you no longer get a good nights rest ... replace it.
  • i dont bother unless i get bedbugs and then i get rid of the whole thing
