5 Signs Your Old Mattress is Making You Sick

Do you often wake up feeling sore and unrested? Have you noticed that your allergies or asthma has gotten a lot worse in recent months or years? If so, it’s possible your mattress is to blame. An old mattress can have a major impact on your overall health. If you haven’t bought a new mattress in recent years, it may be time to consider doing so if you’ve noticed that your sleep is affected. Here are some of the signs that your old mattress has gone from being a little uncomfortable to actually making you sick.

You Wake Up Feeling Stiff and Sore

One of the most obvious signs that your mattress is old and is now affecting your physical health is how you feel in the morning. If you wake up feeling very stiff and sore, your mattress isn’t providing you the support you need. The foam may have sunk or developed some lumpy spots. Springs may have shifted and may stick up a bit too far, poking you in the side. If you always have the same stiff or sore spots in the morning, it’s likely your mattress is to blame.

Another sign that you need to look for mattress replacement in North Houston is that you can’t get comfortable to fall asleep at night. You may toss and turn, trying to find a position that doesn’t put too much pressure on your joints. If you find yourself waking up in the night due to discomfort, look for mattress disposal sooner rather than later. You definitely need a new mattress.

What will these aches and pains do long-term? They can make it easier for you to injure yourself. You may start relying more and more on over-the-counter pain relievers, too. While using these medications every now and then is fine, if you’re using them daily, they could impact your health. Being sore also affects your mood. You might become more agitated and snap at people more often, especially in the morning.


You Don’t Feel Rested in the Morning

Even if you don’t feel stiff and sore in the morning, your mattress may still be making you sick if you’re not getting a good night’s sleep. A lack of sleep can affect your body in a number of ways. It can make specific chronic illnesses, including heart disease and diabetes, worse. Your body repairs itself during sleep, and if you’re constantly waking up, that process is interrupted. If these interruptions continue every night, it can also be hard to fight off illnesses or recover from wounds.

Going without sleep can affect you mentally and emotionally, too. When your brain doesn’t get the rest it needs, you’ll find thinking and concentrating can be much more difficult. Your brain may feel fuzzy, and even listening and comprehending what someone is saying can be hard. You are much more likely to make mistakes or forget things when you’re sleep-deprived, too. Your reaction time will also be affected. You may not be able to move fast enough to prevent an accident. If you’re driving, you may not see an oncoming car or react fast enough to avoid getting into a wreck.

Emotionally, a lack of sleep can affect your temper. You may find that you’re agitated and get upset much more easily when you haven’t had much sleep. This can cause friction in your relationships, especially if you find yourself getting angry. Going days or weeks without a good night’s rest, however, can make things that normally wouldn’t bother you at all set off an overly emotional reaction.

Your Allergies or Asthma Are Getting Worse

Your bed isn’t always to blame for an increase in allergies or asthma, but it can be. Mattresses, over time, collect all kinds of dirt and debris. Even if you have a mattress protector under your sheet, there are still things that will get into the mattress. Dust, dust mites, pet dander, and even mold will start building up in the mattress over the years. Whenever you sleep in the bed, you’ll be breathing some of this stuff in. It will certainly affect your breathing, especially if you already have some breathing issues. It can make allergies worse as well as trigger your asthma.

If you’ve tried vacuuming, airing out the space, and an air purifier but still find that your allergies are pretty bad when you sleep at home, it could be your mattress. Think about when you bought your mattress. If it’s been five years or more, it could be the issue or at least contributing to your breathing difficulties. Remember, just because the general rule is to replace a mattress every eight years doesn’t mean that every mattress will last that long. When you suspect your mattress is causing you health problems, it’s time to search for mattress removal in North Houston.


You Find Signs of Bed Bugs

No one wants bed bugs. These little pests will come out at night and literally suck your blood, leaving you with itchy spots all over. Taking care of a bed bug infestation is not easy. While it may seem like a good spray takes care of them, you may find that they are back within a few weeks. That’s because bed bugs are so small they can hide inside the covers of electrical outlets and behind loose trim.

Even if you have the home tented and sprayed, it may be too late for your mattress. While there are some options for cleaning mattresses, unless it’s brand new, you may be better off replacing it. Use this as an opportunity to get a brand new mattress, though do be certain the infestation has been eradicated first so you don’t get the pests in your new mattress.

The Tag Mentions Specific Chemicals

Today, many mattresses are designed to comply with specific non-toxic regulations or with organic standards. However, not all mattresses do so, and some older mattresses definitely don’t meet these standards. They may contain chemicals such as polyurethane, formaldehyde, and more that can actually cause skin reactions and irritate your lungs and throat. If you check your mattress tag and it lists any of these chemicals, it may be time to replace it with an organic mattress or one that meets Oeko-Tex Standard 100, a regulation that limits the amount of specific chemicals in products.


How Do You Get Rid of Mattresses?

When it comes to getting rid of a mattress, the size and bulk can be an issue. Many organizations that take donations will not accept mattresses, so it may seem like the dump is the only option. Waiting for bulk trash pickup may mean storing the mattress for weeks, and that can be a pain. Taking it to the landfill yourself can also be difficult if you don’t have a truck or other vehicle capable of hauling the mattress.

The best option for disposing of an old mattress in North Houston is to call Junk King. We will haul away old mattresses plus old furniture, appliances, televisions, hot tubs, yard waste, home construction debris, and much, much more. You don’t need to haul the mattress down to the curb or even take it out of your bedroom, either. Just strip the sheets of it and we’ll do the rest. We will take it out carefully, too, so nothing is damaged and no one is injured.
