blog.tribakBeing a blogger is no joke, there are a lot for you to address other than your writing, and if especially if you see yourself reading my blog, it requires a lot of fresh material to keep the blog up to date and relevant. That leaves little to no time for everything else. But when it comes to the point that you have to replace your mattress, knowing that blogging is what you do, then there’s nowhere else to look but online. A place that makes everything much easier for a lot of us, here are some tips that you can follow before getting a new mattress.

Research online. Researching applies not just to buying the right mattress but everything else. Knowing what you are up against can be a huge advantage and will help you make the right choice. The internet is full of information that almost all information about anything can be found in it if you know where to look.

Talk to your physician first. Especially if you’re feeling sore and aching all-over when you wake up. This might spell a condition in your body and remember doctors aren’t sleep experts, but they can check if you have a condition that may not be related to your bed after all.

Firm mattresses aren’t always best. Think twice or thrice before buying that firm mattress, research suggests that the mattress for back pain is a medium firm mattress rather than the highly firm ones. There’s a difference between the two. You will want a type of ‘firmness’ that still feels comfortable. Remember, comfort is based on personal preference.

Ask about their money-back guarantees. If you are eyeing a memory foam mattress but still not sure if they’re the ones for you, you might want to consider Tempupedic brand since they over a 30-day money-back guarantee. If the mattress doesn’t perform the way you want it to, you’ll probably want to send it back, and they’ll take it. No problem. Other makers do offer these kinds of deals too, and not only for memory foams, also for spring, latex mattresses etc.

Check warranty. A good mattress should provide you atleast a minimum of 8-10 year full-replacement or non-prorated warranty. That just adds more confidence to their product and will help you keep your mind at ease.

Test the mattress. When trying to shop for a mattress, you can go to a department store and actually lie on the mattress itself. Don’t be shy, that’s a common mistake for other consumers that they are hesitant to actually try the mattress out. Lie on the mattress for 10 to 15 minutes, in fact, salespeople are actually expecting this because they know it’s a big purchase that you are trying to do. You are not going to get a real feel for the mattress until you have lied on the bed for more than 10 minutes.

Shop at a store that are mattress specialists. Obviously you should trust the seller that has more experience and have more training and knowledge of the product and the whole subject of sleeping. Try to look for a store that carries the major brands like Sealy, Tempurpedic and Simmons. or basically trusted brands for mattresses. Also, check out memory foams and find out if it’s something you might want.
