We’re going to educate your minds with some mattress facts today, and we’re warning you - they aren’t all pretty. It stands to reason that something we sleep on every day is bound to get dirty and grimey over time. These facts are both disgusting and fascinating, and they might just encourage you to think more carefully in the future. Don’t think you need a new mattress? You might after reading this.

You’re Shedding Skin Cells Over It

No matter how many times you vacuum your mattress, you can’t prevent it from becoming filled with your own skin cells. In fact, you’re shedding millions on skin cells on a daily basis. You’re bound to spend a large part of that day sleeping, and those skin cells fall onto your bed. You also sweat during the night, which is another problem. What can you do about it? Use a protective mattress cover. Make sure you regularly clean it, too.

You’re Sharing Your Bed With Dust Mites

So, you know those skin cells you’re shedding on a nightly basis? They aren’t just gross to think about. As mentioned at Live Science, you’re sharing your bed with dust mites, and guess what they love to feed on? Yep, skin cells. The best ways to reduce dust mites is to wash your bedding regularly and use anti-allergen bedding if possible. Don’t panic too much - dust mites won’t pose any severe threats, but might aggravate allergies and asthma conditions.

Messy Beds Might Be Healthier Beds

You know how your mother always used to tell you to make your bed? Now, you’ve got a reason to argue. According to a 2005 study, it is believed that an unmade bed might be a healthier alternative. The reason for this is because, with a made bed, you’re trapping dust mites underneath the covers. Leaving those sheets exposed can help to kill the mites by exposing them to conditions they can’t thrive in.

They Can Last 8-10 Years

Depending on who you talk to, mattresses are generally expected to last around 8-10 years. Once you’ve hit that limit, it’s always best to seek a new one. However, high-quality mattresses like memory foam are expected to last a little longer than usual. Getting rid of a mattress is always a pain, but there are more options than you might expect for this, too. Arguably the easiest is something like Bay Wide Hauling offers - mattress removal services that haul it away for you.

You Shouldn’t Hide Valuables Under Your Mattress

You might think that hiding your valuables under your mattress is a good idea, but it isn’t. It’s far too common a strategy, and thieves are clued-up about this technique. Also, sleeping on anything isn’t going to help your comfort levels. You might be doing serious damage to your back by loading your bed with valuables. It isn’t worth it!
