Buying a mattress is easily one of the long-term investment you make. With the overwhelming choices we have today, most of us wouldn’t even know where to start.
That is why Gerian Sloetjes is here to answer all the questions about mattresses. Gerian is the owner of DirectBed.ca, one of the Three Best Rated® award-winning Mattress Stores in Hamilton, ON.
When to change your mattress?
“As a child, most often you did not think about your mattress,” he says, “As we get older and heavier, we are more aware of our aches and pains. And you will immediately feel it when your mattress is not doing its job of relieving pressure or supporting your back. If you are not getting good sleep, one of the top reasons is that your mattress may be worn out,” he further explained.
The thumb rule is to replace a mattress every eight-year. However, it may change based on your sleeping position, body type, and the type of mattress. A good quality spring mattress lasts up to 7 years while a foam mattress can last up to 10 years.
Gerian suggests listening to your body. “There is no real guide to when to change your mattress. Just listen to your body, it will tell you,” he says. If you are having trouble sleeping or feel restless even after a proper 8-hour sleep, then maybe it is time to toss your mattress and get a new one.
How to select the right mattress?
“There are many factors to consider about your mattress choice, and contrary to popular internet mattresses, there is no one size fits all mattress,” Gerian says.
When customers call or visit their store, Gerian and his team perform an in-depth, proprietary survey to understand their mattress needs. “There are probably 15-20 different modern mattress technologies inside a mattress that address different sleep needs. By figuring out exactly your needs, we are able to match you to the best product in our line up at exactly your price point,” he explained.
After working in the mattress retail business for many years, Gerian and his wife decided to open their own mattress store in 2013. “Our mission is to take our time to build up a business on the foundation of integrity, honesty, and good customer relationships,” he explained.
They have both in-store and online shopping options available with free shipping all over Canada. Gerian announced that they will be opening a new store in St. Catharines soon. “We are happy to announce that we are expanding our business to open another location in the city of St. Catharines, ON. We will be providing the same great in-store service that we have established in Stoney Creek,” he says excitedly.
He and his team believe in giving back to the community. During the initial moments of Covid-19, in March 2020, they sensed that wearing a non-medical face mask would be a crucial factor in reducing the spread of the virus. He worked with their MPP to get express permission from Doug Ford to distribute non-medical face masks. “We ended up distributing over 10,000 face masks for free at a time when no face masks were available. We are proud that in a small way, we contributed to the success of this across Canada,” he says proudly.
