Signs That Your Mattress Is Saggy

Signs That Your Mattress Is Saggy

If you notice that you're sinking into the mattress when you lie down or if there are visible indentations on the surface, these are indicators that your mattress is saggy.  

Another sign of a sagging mattress is if you experience back pain or other discomfort while sleeping. 

Here are some other signs that your mattress is sagging:

  • There are visible lumps or dips on the surface.
  • The edges of the mattress are drooping or sagging.
  • You can feel springs poking through the surface. 

If you're noticing any of these signs, then it's time to do something about it

What Causes a Sagging Mattress

There are several different causes of sagging mattresses. 

  • Over time, even the best quality mattresses will start to show some wear and tear. 
  • If one side of the bed is higher than the other, this can cause the mattress to sag. 
  • Sleeping on your side puts less pressure on the bed and helps keep it in better condition.
  • Some mattresses are made with cheap, low-quality materials that are more likely to sag over time. 

How to Fix a Sagging Mattress

If you notice your mattress is sagging, there are a few mattress repair options:

  • A mattress topper will help to fill in any gaps and make the surface of the mattress more even. 
  • Check the warranty on your mattress. Many manufacturers will replace a sagging mattress if it is under warranty. 
  • Add an extra support layer by placing a piece of plywood under the mattress. This will help distribute the weight of the mattress more evenly and prevent further sagging. 

If your mattress is beyond repair, it may be time to buy a new one.
