Your mattress goes through a lot during it’s recommended life span of eight years. We spend on average 20,761 hours lying on top of it but only some of that is spent getting a good night’s sleep.

We carried out a survey that found only 41% of people in the UK are happy with the amount of sleep they get, so they hit the snooze button hoping to gain extra sleep. But that is actually wasted sleep and can have a adverse affect on our mattress.
