Are you bewildered when it comes to bed buying? Are you unsure if you need a new bed or not?
We’re here to help and with our latest campaign – ‘May be time for a new mattress’ – we’re highlighting the benefits a new comfortable, supportive bed can bring and why you need to think about changing your old mattress if it is seven years old or more.
Did you know that after seven years it might not be offering the levels of comfort or support that it should but, even worse, it’s filled with more than two baths-full of bodily fluids and half a stone of dead skin scales?!
Did you also know that it’s been proved that an old bed can rob you of up to an hour’s sleep a night?
And if you compare sleep on a new bed versus an old bed sleep quality is better – that is, less disturbed and more recuperative sleep – with three times fewer physical movements and two times fewer micro-awakenings being recorded.
So if you’re sleeping on an old bed, now’s the time to make the change. A comfortable, supportive bed is the foundation of good sleep. Many people make the link that lack of sleep affects how they feel the next day but many fail to recognise that their sleep could be improved by a new mattress. If you’re unsure if you need a new mattress or not, take our Bed MOT here.
And remember if you are looking to buy a new bed then look for the NBF Approved label – it’s a mark of approval to be sure you’re buying a safe, clean and honest product from a reputable manufacturer, who’s passed rigorous independent testing.
