Mark from Wiseguys Mattress, is Saskatoons Mattress expert and here he shares a Trusted tip

With the holidays coming, maybe you are in need of a new mattress for company? Before buying that spare room mattress, ask yourself this. If your mattress is 7 or more years old, or simply not as comfortable as it used to be, maybe make your mattress the spare room one and get a new one for yourself. It might cost a few dollars more now, but in the long run saves you money as you only have to by one mattress and not two. A good quality mattress, by Sleep Council Canada standards, should last on average 8-10 years. So if your mattress is 7 years old or older, you will likely be replacing it in a few years. You will be able to get many more years of use by using it as a spare room bed.

Whatever you decide, here are some myths about mattresses you need to know.

Top mattress myths:

1. Firmer is better

The truth is that the best mattress for your back is the one that feels best to you. A mattress provides both pressure relief (the top portion of the mattress provides this) and back support (the bottom part of the mattress provides this) and the best combination of that feeling is what you are looking for in a mattress. The best bed is the one that’s most comfortable to you.

2.High Coil count is critical

The truth is that there is way more to it than that. Type, gauge, tempering, etc are FAR, FAR more critical and important. High coil counts absolutely does not mean a better bed. people who talk nothing but coil counts know nothing about mattresses.

3. Silk, cashmere, and wool make a bed more comfortable

The small amounts usually used in the upper padding only make a bed more expensive. When you cover your mattress with a pad and sheets, you can’t directly feel the surface anyway.

4. Stores sell the same mattress under different names

Retailers often claim that their mattress A is comparable to a competitor’s mattress B. Though you may find beds that are truly alike, most “comparables” had little in common.They may look exactly the same on the outside, but will have different foaming, foam amount, and/or different grades of foam. Unless it's the same manufacture, and the bed has the same name at both locations, there will be a difference

5. I save a lot of money when mattresses are 50% off

Ever wonder how some stores can always be having a half price sale all the time? It's because their "regular retail price" is sky high. Then it's "half off" to give you the illusion of saving big. Companies advertise like this because it works. I had a mattress I retailed for $899 taxes included, I had a competitors full page ad for the same mattress saying they were selling it for 70% off. Their retail price was $3200. Same bed!!!

6. The higher the price of the mattress you buy, the better quality sleep you will get.

Look at reason 4 to see why this is false. However, price differences can also reflect the expense of the foam from bed to bed. Higher grades and densities simply cost more. However expensive foam doesn't mean more comfort. Again, you purchase what you find comfortable, not what is more expensive.

7. Salespeople are always objective

In a perfect world maybe, but manufacturers dangle financial incentives known as SPIFs (for “sales person incentive funds”) to push various brands and models. Again, nobody knows whats best for you other than you.

If nothing else remember these simple rules... The only thing that matters in a mattress is comfort, comfort, comfort and durability.

Nobody knows what is right for you, except you. Everybody has different comfort levels. Let your body tell you what's right.
