HOW TO SAY GOODBYE TO YOUR OLD MATTRESS

Mattresses usually last 8-10 years before they need to be replaced. Mattresses are one of the most difficult consumer products to get rid of responsibly.

Mattresses are one of the most difficult consumer products to get rid of responsibly. Maybe this is one of the main reasons that they end up on the Curb. But have you ever thought what happens to the old mattress when you leave it on the curb? The size and construction of the mattress create a major problem for the authorities.
"300,000 mattresses are sent to landfill every year in New Zealand – if stacked this pile of unwanted mattresses would reach to the edge of space! This 8100 tonnes of waste cost $14.5 million to landfill every year", says 3R Group Chief Executive Adele Rose.


So what’s the best way to get rid of your old mattress? Here are some of the suggested ways to adios your old Mattress:

Sell it:

If your Mattress is not a home to bed bugs and has no major stains or rips. You can consider to sell it for a nominal fee. Trademe or any other social media platform can help you reach potential buyers. This can be one of the most environmentally friendly options.

Donate the Mattress:

You can check with your local non-profits to see if they accept old mattresses or beds in a donation. Organizations like The Salvation Army & Red Cross have centers where you can drop your good quality old beds & Furniture that can be passed to people in need.

Consider Recycling:

If you're not able to sell or donate your mattress, then you should try to send your mattress to a recycling center. Both consumers and businesses can drop off old mattresses at these centers. Businesses can also arrange direct delivery to a local processing centre. The mattresses are dismantled into raw materials, such as steel, foam, plastic, and fabric which are either recycled or reused. The rebound mattress recycling program is a stewardship program designed to provide a simple and accessible solution enabling consumers to responsibly dispose of unwanted mattresses and bed bases.



Break It Yourself:

If you have the time, space, and tools, you can easily break a mattress or base yourself. Simply cut around the perimeter of the fabric covering and peel the cloth and foam away from the box springs and wooden frame. You can roll these materials into a compact bundle and put them in your regular trash can. Next, take a saw and cut up the frame you can then burn or turn it into wood chips. Take the box springs to a recycling center or sell them for scrap.

Re-Purposing:

An old mattress can be re-purposed which means putting it to another use. It requires creative imagination to come up with ideas on where to use the old mattress. In Australia, an enterprising group is taking the stuffing out of old mattresses, washing it, and then making punching bags using it as filling. Before you throw away your old mattress consider if you can find a new use for it.


With an estimated 300,000 mattresses and bases sent to landfill every year in New Zealand. That’s the equivalent of twenty-five 20-foot shipping containers filled with these units every single day the community needs to dispose of their old beds responsibly.

Hi Neighbours,

Feeling sluggish in the mornings or noticing increased discomfort in your back?

It might not just be your alarm clock—it could be time to assess if your mattress is still providing the support you need.

Let's explore the signs that suggest it's time for a new mattress, ensuring your nights are as restorative as they should be.

Health Check: Are You Waking Up Sore?

It’s not normal to wake up feeling like you’ve run a marathon (unless you actually have!). If your mattress is getting older, you might notice more back pain or general discomfort.

Investing in a new mattress can significantly improve your sleep quality and overall health.

Remember, your mattress should be your sanctuary, not a source of discomfort.

If you find yourself tossing and turning, trying to find a comfortable spot, it's a clear sign your body is asking for something new.

Spot the Signs: Physical Indicators Your Mattress Needs Replacing

Take a close look at your mattress:

Does it sag in the middle where you sleep?
Can you feel springs or bumps that weren't there before?
These are signs that your mattress is wearing out.

Over time, mattresses lose their shape and the materials inside break down, failing to provide adequate support.

Don’t compromise on comfort; a new mattress can revitalize your sleep experience. Isn’t that a wonderful reason to consider an upgrade?

How Long Has It Been? Understanding Mattress Lifespan

Every mattress has an expiration date, although it’s not printed on the tag.

Depending on the type—memory foam, innerspring, or others—they generally last 7 to 10 years.

Factors like mattress quality and maintenance affect lifespan.

Think about how long you've had your current mattress.

Is it nearing a decade?

If so, it might be time to start looking for a replacement.


What to Do Next: Choosing and Maintaining Your New Mattress

Selecting a new mattress might seem overwhelming, but it doesn’t have to be.

Consider your sleep position, body weight, and comfort preferences.

Explore our Mattress Collection for various options incorporating the latest technology for the best night's sleep.

After choosing, proper maintenance can extend your mattress’s life:

Rotate it regularly
Use a mattress protector
Ensure good ventilation
The Comfort of a Fresh Mattress

Now that you understand the signs and tips for choosing wisely, why wait?

A new mattress is an investment in your health and well-being, not just an upgrade for your bedroom.

Explore our selection at Beds4U for high-quality, supportive mattresses that promise to transform your sleep—and your waking hours.

Say goodbye to sleepless nights and hello to mornings when you wake up refreshed and ready to conquer the day.

Your body—and your future self—will thank you for this smart, comforting choice!

Sleep Smart: How to Pick the Perfect Mattress Firmness for You

Discover the key to a great night's sleep by finding the perfect mattress firmness. Learn how to choose between soft, medium, and firm options to enhance your sleep quality and boost your daily energy.

Let’s break it down into simple terms to help you make an informed decision that can transform your sleep quality and, by extension, your daily energy levels.

Spinal Alignment and Support
One of the most critical aspects of mattress selection is the support it provides to your spine.

Firm mattresses are often recommended for back and stomach sleepers as they offer a stable support system that maintains natural spinal alignment. This reduces the risk of waking up with back pain or discomfort.

On the other hand, soft mattresses can be a haven for side sleepers. The extra “give” in a soft mattress accommodates the hips and shoulders, aligning the spine correctly when lying on your side.
However, it's not just about sleep position; weight also plays a role.

Heavier individuals might find that a firm mattress provides better support, preventing the feeling of sinking too deeply into the mattress, which can misalign the spine.

Conversely, lighter individuals may prefer the cushioning of a soft mattress.

Durability and Lifespan
Investing in a mattress is a significant decision, and understanding the longevity of your purchase is essential.

Typically, firm mattresses have a longer lifespan because they are less prone to sagging over time. The dense and tightly packed materials in a firm mattress resist the indentations that softer mattresses might develop, especially in areas under continuous pressure from body weight.

While providing luxurious comfort and excellent pressure relief, soft mattresses might require more frequent replacement if the materials start to compress and lose their supportive properties.
This is something to consider if you’re looking for a mattress that will maintain its comfort and support for many years.

Comfort, Pressure Relief, and Temperature Regulation
Soft mattresses excel at providing pressure relief, which is particularly beneficial for those with joint pain or conditions like arthritis.

The cushioning effect of a soft mattress cradles the body’s contours, reducing pressure points and promoting a more restful sleep.

However, temperature regulation is another vital factor to consider.

Firm mattresses typically facilitate better airflow around the body, staying cooler throughout the night. This can be a significant advantage if you tend to sleep hot.

Soft mattresses, due to their enveloping nature, might retain more body heat, potentially leading to discomfort for some sleepers.


Finding Your Perfect Match at Beds4U
Now that you know the differences between soft and firm mattresses, why not test them out for yourself?

At Beds4U, a trusted name across New Zealand, we're dedicated to helping every Kiwi find their perfect bed. Whether you crave the enveloping comfort of a soft mattress or the robust support of a firm one, our extensive range has something for everyone.

A good night's sleep is essential for our overall well-being.


We understand the significance of choosing the perfect mattress size and type to ensure you wake up feeling refreshed and rejuvenated every morning.

In this comprehensive guide, we'll walk you through the factors to consider when selecting your mattress, from the kind of bed that suits your sleep style to the ideal firmness and size for your needs.

The Crucial Role of Choosing the Right Mattress for a Good Night's Rest


The foundation of restful sleep begins with your bedtime routine and, critically, with selecting the right kind of mattress.
The comfort and support provided by your mattress play a pivotal role in determining the quality of sleep you enjoy.


The significance of your sleeping position intertwines with the necessity of choosing an appropriate mattress. It's more than a matter of preference; it directly influences your sleep quality and overall well-being.
Understanding how your mattress complements your sleeping posture is key to achieving a more restful and rejuvenating night's sleep.


Spinal Alignment

The impact of your mattress on spinal alignment cannot be overstated. A mattress that properly supports your body will maintain the natural curvature of your spine, reducing pressure points and alleviating discomfort.


Tip: For back sleepers, a mattress that offers medium-firm support can help maintain the natural curve of the lower back. Side sleepers might look for a mattress that provides a softer surface to contour to the hips and shoulders, keeping the spine aligned.


Respiratory Health

Your mattress can also affect your respiratory health, particularly if it exacerbates or mitigates conditions like snoring or obstructive sleep apnea. The right mattress can support sleeping positions that promote open airways.


Tip: Side sleepers, who may experience fewer breathing difficulties, should choose a mattress that allows for easy movement and doesn’t lock them into one position.


Circulation

A mattress that restricts blood flow can lead to discomfort, numbness, or even pressure ulcers. It's vital to select a mattress that facilitates good circulation, complementing your body's needs.


Tip: A mattress that is too firm might impede circulation for side sleepers, while one that is too soft may cause back sleepers to sink too deeply, affecting blood flow.


Comfort and Support

Ultimately, the goal is to find a mattress that provides both comfort and support tailored to your preferred sleeping position. This ensures not only a restful night's sleep but also contributes to your overall health and well-being.


Tip: Invest time in testing mattresses to find one that matches your body's contours and supports your sleeping style.


Whether you prefer a plush, firm, or medium-firm mattress, the right choice can dramatically improve your sleep quality.


What Size Of Mattress Is Best For Sleep?

Selecting the right mattress size is essential for maximizing comfort and ensuring ample space for restful sleep.


For solo sleepers or children, a single or twin mattress provides ample space for a comfortable night's sleep.

Couples may opt for a larger size, such as a queen or king mattress, to ensure ample room for rest without compromising individual space and comfort.

Consider your bedroom's dimensions and personal preferences when choosing the perfect mattress size.

When making our homes comfortable, we also want to think about how our choices affect the environment.

That's why it's important to consider the furniture we use, especially in our bedrooms.


Let's talk about sustainable bedroom furniture and how it can fit into your life.

Eco-Friendly Furniture

Choosing eco-friendly furniture is more than just a trend; it's a commitment to sustainability and responsible living.

But what is Eco-Friendly Furniture?

Eco-friendly furniture, also known as sustainable furniture, is designed and manufactured with the planet in mind, minimising environmental impact while maximising style and functionality.

It’s crafted from materials and produced using processes that have minimal negative effects on the environment.

This includes utilizing renewable resources, recycled materials, and sustainable manufacturing practices.

By opting for eco-friendly furniture, you reduce your carbon footprint and support industries prioritizing environmental stewardship.

Materials Matter

So, what makes furniture eco-friendly?

One of the key elements of eco-friendly furniture is the materials used in its construction. Sustainable options often include:

Wood. Look for furniture made from sustainably sourced wood. These woods are harvested in a way that maintains the health of forests and ecosystems.

Recycled Materials. Furniture crafted from recycled materials, such as reclaimed wood or recycled plastics, gives new life to old resources, reducing the need for new materials and diverting waste from landfills.

Natural Fibers. Upholstered furniture made from natural fibers like organic cotton, hemp, or bamboo reduces the environmental impact compared to synthetic materials and minimizes exposure to harmful chemicals.

It's also important to pick furniture that's built to last. When you invest in quality pieces, you're not only reducing waste but also saving money in the long run.


Sustainable Manufacturing Practices

In addition to using eco-friendly materials, sustainable furniture manufacturers prioritize environmentally conscious production methods. This includes:

Energy Efficiency. Manufacturers invest in energy-efficient technologies and practices to reduce energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions during the production process.

Waste Reduction. Minimizing waste through efficient manufacturing processes and recycling or repurposing materials helps conserve resources and reduce landfill waste.

Fair Labor Practices. Sustainable furniture companies often prioritize fair labor practices, ensuring that workers are treated ethically and paid fair wages throughout the supply chain.

Sustainable Bedroom Meets Style

You might think that eco-friendly furniture means sacrificing style, but that's not the case anymore.

Today, sustainable bedroom furniture comes in all sorts of stylish designs.

Whether you like the classic look of wooden furniture or the modern feel of sleek designs, there's something eco-friendly for everyone's taste.

Transform Your Bedroom with Sustainable Furniture
