The truth about mattress lifespan
Mattresses don't last fifteen years. Most don't function well past ten. Conventional warranties reflect this truth and often don't cover wear at all. Our retailers consistenly see customers replacing a "premium" conventional mattress that is less than five years old. Many mattress companies sell expensive mattresses made of substandard materials that just don't hold up well over time knowing that consumers believe a more costly product is a better one
Mattresses have a normal arc of wear
Mattresses do wear with use-and they should. If the weight of your body doesn't cause the mattress to yield, your body will experience increased pressure in the shoulders and hips. This yielding leads to the mattress' gradual breakdown. Put another way, either the mattress wears out-our you do. A well -built mattress with durable, flexible components will generally last about ten years. Wear will occur gradually without dramatically affecting comfort or function
The Berkeley Ergonomics Solution
We are mattress designers and builders. Our mattress is designed for function and built to last with components that we select and buy from Europe and Scandinavia. Our all-natural latex foam and independent carbon steel coils are more durable-and more comfortable-than those found in conventional mattresses. We offer a full-ten year warranty on every mattress as well.
Mattress Durability and Warranty
Like automobiles, mattresses are durable goods with a useable lifespan. Over the course of ten years, we use our mattress more than any other durable good we own, and we're less able to tolerate its wear. While we accept a decline in the performance of our car, refrigerator or shoes, we expect our mattress to perform like new for years despite extensive use.
