  • A mattress is made up of the spring system, coir, foam, fabric and other stuff that provide it shape and structure. You usually buy a mattress on the basis of the softness, spring count, ease of carrying and therapeutic benefits. Its constituents are supposed to wear out after some time.

Your sleeping hours will no longer be comfortable. In case the mattress has deteriorated extremely you may end up waking up exhausted and frustrated.
