We all know that the quality of our mattress can affect our sleep. Something as simple as a broken spring poking us in the back can cause us to toss and turn all night. Not to mention that it can lead to stiffness which stops up from performing our best. But, did you realize that pillows are just as crucial?
Without the right pillow, even the best mattress won’t stop your neck and shoulders from aching when you wake you up. If you have a new mattress but are still experiencing aches and paints when you wake up, then, it’s possible that your pillow is at fault. Lucky for you, we at Best Mattress offer a wide selection of quality memory foam pillows to help you get to the bottom of this problem.
Of course, as with a mattress, taking your time over pillow selection is very important. Rather than opting for cheap choices which rarely last more than a year or two, you may find it worth your while to invest in a long-lasting Tempur-Pedic pillow from our Las Vegas mattress store.
While the lifespan of quality options like these vary, Tempur-Pedic is so sure of a long life that they offer a 5-year limited guarantee on the majority of their pillows. This is in comparison with other memory foam offerings, which have a standard lifespan of around two years. You can pretty much guarantee, then, that investing in a Tempur-Pedic pillow will see you sleeping soundly for years to come.
While we can’t tell you exactly when it is time to get a new pillow, but a few signs that you need a replacement pillow can include –
Their ability to contour to your particular shape is the best thing about Tempur-Pedic pillows. Sadly, this is not a capability on many pillows which will last forever. After extended use, you may find that your pillow begins to lose its shape. When this happens, you’ll soon begin struggling to sleep. That’s a pretty sure indication that the need for a new pillow is in order.
Failure Of The Fold Test
The fold test has long been a judge of whether a pillow is past its best or not. As you can probably guess, this used to involve folding a pillow and observing whether it returns to its standard shape. Obviously, the memory foam nature of a Tempur-Pedic pillow prevents this from being possible, but there is an adapted version for this purpose. Instead of merely folding your pillow, it’s recommended that you place a 1 pound weight on top of your pillow. Then, you should observe how much your of pillow returns to it normal shape after five minutes. If it’s still misshapen then, you can benefit from buying a replacement pillow from our Las Vegas mattress store today!
