Conventional wisdom states you should replace your mattress once every 10 years. Of course, this number is dependent on how often you use the mattress and how well you care for it, but it’s a good rule of thumb for your primary bed’s lifecycle.

Here are two reasons why we advise not keeping it longer than 10 years. Over time, natural materials accumulate in the mattress, eventually degrading the foam. Additionally, sleeping in the same spot repeatedly over a period of time can impact a bed’s performance. In order to guarantee great sleep for years to come, we highly recommend considering a replacement every decade.

Casper mattresses are specifically designed with long-term durability and resilience in mind. Our engineers and designers were tired of purchasing expensive mattresses only to find the foam or springs unsupportive after a few short years. So we set out to layer foam in an innovative way.

It’s important to remember that any mattress worth its salt should last at least 8 years. If you’ve been sleeping on a bed for a short time, and it’s already sagging or giving you back pain — you probably don’t have a high-quality mattress. The great thing about Casper mattresses is that our warranty covers a full 10 years, so you’re guaranteed to have restful, rejuvenating sleep year after year.

To extend the life cycle of your mattress, it’s also important to take proper care of it. Rotating the Casper with the seasons will allow for even wear and tear. Casper’s waterproof mattress protector and foundation can also keep your mattress feeling like new.
