Your mattress is an investment that will last you for many years. It has an average lifespan that could be around the range of 7 to 10 years if you know how to take care of it. This is why people usually take a considerable amount of time in choosing their own mattresses. But every now and then, some unforeseen circumstances may arise which may call for you to replace your mattress earlier than expected. Some complications may arise such as breakage from within the spring system or even just a snap in one of the parts of the wooden framework of the mattress. Any or all of these certain situations may call for either two things. One could be to have your mattress fixed or to go around and look for a new one.
You could have your mattress fixed if the complication is something menial such as those stated above. These are complications that could be easily solved by simple repair or replacement of certain parts of the bed. So then when should you replace your mattress? Well basically it should be replaced if the mattress has incurred permanent damage. Although this can rarely happen, for example with the foam Canada manufactures, it is still a high possibility among those of lower quality mattresses. Some of the permanent damages could be cause by flood with high amounts of water seeping into the mattress making the foam contract an awful odor as well as rusting in the springs.
