A sofa generally lasts 7-15 years when kept in good condition, sofas should break easily as they are made from sturdy materials that help hold the weight of anyone.. but over time sofas become weak, they start to sag and the fabric may become stained, and the base may become squeaky or unsteady.

How to prevent sofa springs from breaking
One of the biggest reasons that the springs pop out from sofas is because of kids jump on the sofa By jumping on it, you are wearing the structure and putting too much pressure on the springs, causing them to pop out.
Another way to prevent sofas from sagging is to turn the pillows around. That way pressure is being distributed equally. Keep the sofa in good condition by adding more padding to the sofa if you feel as though it is getting weak. You can also add sofa covers to protect your sofa and prolong its life.
