Whether you own a fancy memory foam or natural mattress, you’ll have to dispose of it at some point, which is why we’ve created this handy guide for you.

    How do I know if I should discard my old mattress?

People with chronic diseases are more vulnerable to sleep disruptions caused by the presence of symptoms of illness at night, which can negatively affect a person's quality of sleep, and lower the immune system. Allergies are one of the most common chronic diseases and - when not treated right - have the ability to affect sleep in important ways.
