Bene, let me explain the signs a little more! 

Noisy springs: You will start to notice that the mattress springs make a squeaking noise when there is movement. The reason the springs start to make noise is that the coils, which are the spirals of the rings, are worn out and are unable to provide support. 

If you notice your allergies worsen: Unfortunately, when your mattress gets older it can develop dust mites and allergens. In fact, out of your whole house, these allergens tend to live right in your mattress! You can try to vacuum and intensively clean your mattress however if your allergies do not get better, it is time to replace your mattress ASAP. 

If you are getting more muscle stiffness and pains: This sign usually happens when your mattress loses support. If you start to feel a lot of movement, especially if you share the bed with your partner, this can also mean that it is losing support on certain spots on the mattress! But do not panic, a new mattress is a perfect solution.
