We use beds for several hours each day. It’s not surprising that they are one of the most used furniture. That’s why mattresses are built to last for over eight years.
However, just like other things that last, inevitably we need to replace them for the better. It may be because they’re interested in a new mattress model, they need more space, or simply their comfort requirements changed due to age, change in weight, or a personal injury.
So what happens to your old mattress? You can’t dump it in your trash can. It might be illegal to put it on your curb-side. Are you just going to put it in your attic or basement?
Let me tell you, that’s not a great idea. Your old mattress might cause you an infestation.
Termites not only love to chew on wood but also mattresses. Rats and other critters will also tear up mattresses and use it as a nesting place. If left unchecked, mattress infestations will lead to property damage and addressing it alone will cause a lot of money.

Can I Donate My Mattress?
Donating a mattress is not as easy as donating clothes. Charity organizations have a strict standard when accepting mattresses because it’s hard to clean, refurbish, and store them.
Each organization has its own criteria, but there are a few general guidelines:
