How Long Does a Latex Mattress Last?
Purchasing a new mattress can be a chore, so you’d be best to buy a mattress that will last. Natural latex mattresses last longer than memory foam or innerspring mattresses, with an average lifespan of 8-10 years.
There are a number of factors that will affect how long your latex mattress will hold up.
The first consideration is having a proper mattress cover. Since latex is a natural material, exposure to sunlight, dust, and moisture can accelerate the breakdown process. This is great for when you are ready to dispose of your mattress, but not for increasing its lifespan. We suggest a cotton and wool blend cover be used on latex mattresses so that you still reap the benefits of latex’s breathability while keeping the inside protected.
The second consideration is a sleeper’s bodyweight. The truth is that the more you weigh, the more quickly your mattress will breakdown. This is simply due to gravity. This is why we make the Naturale Grand mattress. We built this mattress specifically for overweight people. The 100% natural latex mattress consists of an extra firm support base, with a medium-firm top layer that provides comfort and with support. We know that our overweight sleepers will wear out the top layer more quickly, but don’t want them to have to buy an entirely new mattress so we decided to make this layer replaceable whenever the mattress starts to lose it’s “oomph.”
We hope you enjoy your latex mattress for years to come. To find the best option for you, our customer service team is available to answer any questions you may have.
