Can A Bedframe Cause Mattresses To Sag?
Sagging is usually the result of regular wear-and-tear on your mattress. The foam materials used in mattresses habitually soften over time, as they are exposed to relatively significant pressure every night due to the user's body. Over time, this gradual softening of foam leads to a feeling of sagging, and lessened support.
Though an insufficient bedframe, one that is either too small or damaged in some way, can cause ‘sagging’ as a feeling to occur sooner. It’s important to keep your bedframe intact alongside ensuring it’s the right size for your mattress.
Repairing a mattress isn’t entirely possible, nor is it practical and it’s recommended to just replace it once it’s been used long enough. However, there’re ways to extend it’s overall lifespan in order to prolong any wear-and-tear effects. A mattress topper for example is an excellent choice, providing increased comfort for the user whilst extending the durability and thus overall lifespan of the mattress as a whole. Of course a simpler, and cheaper, solution is to simply flip the mattresses regularly (at a 5-6 month interval) this helps spread out the weight that’s applied to it and stop it softening to a point where it cannot be fixed.
