Mattress Durability

Mattress Durability & Warranty

How Long Should A Mattress Last?

Like automobiles, mattresses are durable goods with a usable lifespan. Over the course of ten years, we use our mattress more than any other durable good we own, and we're less able to tolerate its wear. While we accept a decline in performance in our car, refrigerator or shoes, we expect our mattress to perform like new for years despite extensive use.

The truth about mattress lifespan

Mattresses don't last fifteen years, let alone twenty. Most don't function well past ten. Conventional mattress warranties reflect this truth and often don't cover wear at all. At European Sleep Design, we consistently see customers replacing a "premium" conventional mattress that is less than five years old. Many mattress companies sell expensive mattresses made of substandard materials that just don't hold up well over time knowing that consumers believe a more costly product is a better one.

Mattresses have a normal arc of wear

Mattresses do wear with use—and they should. If the weight of your body doesn't cause the mattress to yield, your body will experience increased pressure in the shoulders and hips. This yielding leads to the mattress' gradual breakdown. Put another way, either the mattress wears out—or you do. A well-built mattress with durable, flexible components will generally last about ten years. Wear should occur gradually without dramatically affecting comfort or function.

Our mattress is designed for function and built to last

At European Sleep Design our mattresses are built with the purest and most durable components available from the best manufacturers in Europe. Our all-natural latex foam and independent flexible steel coils are more durable—and more comfortable—than those found in conventional mattresses. And we offer a full ten-year warranty on every modular mattress model we sell.
