What's the difference between mattress types?
With so many different types of mattresses on the market and new technologies being released all the time, how do you know which mattress type is right for you? Let's start with the basics.
Most mattresses can be categorized into a few types:
The Difference is inside
Innerspring, foam, pocket springs — what's the difference?
An innerpsring mattress features a coil support system. The shape, coil gage and number of coils can vary by mattress. Innerspring mattresses can break down over time and tend to get squeaky with age.
Foam mattresses offer comfort and support through an all-foam make up. There are a few different types of foams used in mattresses, the combination of which offer varying levels of firmness.
A pocket spring mattress offers support through a base layer of pocket springs. Unlike innersprings, pocket springs are individually-wrapped to work independently and offer targeted pressure-relief.

How often should you replace your mattress?
There's no magic number of years a mattress should last, but it may be time for a new mattress if:
- You're waking up with aches and pains,
- Your mattress is lumpy, uneven or smelly (or all of the above!), or
- Your mattress is more than 10 years old.
