Because a couch mattress may not be used as often as a traditional mattress, it becomes even more important to inspect it regularly to avoid some common health issues.

Bedbugs or Dust Mites

Bedbugs are nuisances that cause a great deal of misery from itchy bites. While they are visible to the eye, and fully grown can reach the size of an apple seed, they are very flat and can fit through tiny spaces. They hide in luggage, clothing and furniture, including old mattresses.

Another creepy-crawly that can infest an old mattress is the dust mite. Dust mites are microscopic and feed on flakes of skin or pet dander and are common allergens. It is impossible to completely rid a home or other living area of dust mites, but replacing an infested mattress and using an “allergy-proof” mattress cover on your new sofa bed mattress may help cut down on allergy attacks.

Back Pain

A good indicator that a couch mattress needs to be replaced is if the sleeper wakes with back pain resulting from feeling the bar or frame through the old mattress. Over time, a hide a bed mattress may lose its padding and ability to protect the sleeper from experiencing an imbalance of pressure on the body.
