Centuary Mattress Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ's)
The brain uses significantly less energy during sleep than it does when awake. During sleep the body is not in a state to respond to the stimuli quickly or even perceive it. While sleeping most of the body’s systems are in a repair mode, helping to restore the immune, nervous, skeletal, and muscular systems.
Studies show that every hour of sleep deprivation below 8 hours for adults results in a 25% loss in productivity. Six hours of sleep or less lowers our resistance to viral infections by 50%. Six hours of continuous sleep is more restorative than eight hours of interrupted sleep.
Yes. An average human being ideally spends 1/3rd of his life (8 hours per day) asleep, and the mattress has the potential either to encourage sleep or rob you of sleep. Whether your mattress is a sleep friend or a sleep foe can determine how refreshed you feel in the morning. If you’re tossing and turning more at night or if you’re waking up feeling stiff or sore after a night’s sleep, it could be a sign that your current mattress is no longer the best for you.
Sleeping on a comfortable mattress is the easiest way of ensuring a full night’s sleep. A comfortable mattress will avoid back pain, which can severely affect the quality of life of older people. Also a comfortable sleep can help rejuvenate your body completely to handle the mental and physical stress for the day.
A more comfortable and a good mattress will also lead to lower stress levels in all types of people, as one of the main reasons for stress are lack of sleep.

A good mattress provides the right combination of “support” and “comfort”. Correct support is essential for a healthy body. A good mattress will gently support your body at all points and keep your spine in the same shape as a person with good standing posture. When trying mattresses, pay special attention to your shoulders, hips and lower back, the heaviest parts of your body.
- The answer is a matter of individual preference. What’s best for me may not be best for you. When it comes to mattresses, there is no one-size-fits-all. After all, we’re all built differently and have different comfort and support preferences, so why would the same mattress be “best” for all of us?
- To determine the mattress that’s best for you, we recommend using the process of TRIALS & elimination to weed out the ones you don’t like.
The best way to try a mattress is to take the “SLEEP Test”:
- Select a mattress
- Lie down in your sleep position
- Evaluate the level of comfort and support
- Educate yourself about each selection
- Partners should try each mattress together
- Don’t be embarrassed. You don’t think twice about test driving a car, and you shouldn’t think twice about “SLEEP Testing” a mattress. Lie down on the mattress for several minutes and assess how well it provides support and how comfortable it is for you.
- Mattress Life/ Durability – It is generally recommended to go for a mattress which offers a good warranty period; even if it means investing slightly more at the time of purchase
- Mattress Material Type – Mattresses can essentially be categorised into a) Coir; b) Foam; c) Spring; d) Hybrid (combination) based on the material used inside.
- Firmness – Depending on the materials used, and the configuration of different layers; a mattress Firmness can be classified as a) Soft; b) Firm; c) Extra Firm. Each individual may have a different preference for the firmness/softness that they want from their mattress; in other words.
- Sleeping postures – Every individual has their own unique sleeping posture. Some prefer to sleep on their sides, where as some are strictly back or stomach sleepers. However, most people are combination sleepers. While testing the mattress before purchase, make sure to try all sleep postures.
- Body Weight – Depending on your body weight, you may need to decide whether to go for a firmer/softer mattress; and also the thickness of the mattress. As a thumb rule, heavier individuals should opt for a thicker & firmer mattress; which can offer them the desired level of support.
- Breathability – The last and often neglected point to consider is the breathability of the mattress; which has a huge impact in how hot/cold you may feel when you sleep, and also on the long term hygiene of the mattress (remember – we often tend to use the same mattress for years at a time, so maintaining its hygiene is of paramount importance). Generally, natural materials such as coir, latex, etc. are more breathable and hence recommended for healthy sleep
- Mattress is over 7 years old
- Not feeling rested when you wake up
- You wake up with aches and pains and holding the back
- Visible and noticeable sagging
- Other places feel more comfortable than your own bed
YES, having the right pillow is as important as having the right mattress. If you are not sleeping well, or you wake up with a stiff neck or upper back, or if you keep changing your head position frequently at night, chances are that you don’t have the right pillow.
The right pillow can make a difference in your sleep. So, here are a few guidelines that may be helpful to you when choosing the firmness that is right for you. The goal of a “perfect fitting” sleeping pillow is to relieve stress on the neck. So we recommend A Soft Pillow for stomach sleeping. A Medium Pillow for back sleeping. A Firm Pillow for side sleeping, unless you are petite. If you are a petite side sleeper, a medium pillow may be a better choice.
Fibre and foam pillows both have their own unique advantages. It is a matter of personal preference what one likes better. The ideal fibre pillow uses fine siliconised fibers where as the ideal foam pillows use high quality super soft grade foam. Memory foam pillows are the best when it comes to perfectly aligning the neck and the spine in the sleeping positions, hence they are recommended.
The average pillow lasts for two to three years, even though foam pillows are generally effective for only two years. If your back, neck, knees, or ankles are sore when you wake up in the morning, it may be time for a new pillow. In addition, many people want a new pillow when their current pillow is especially lumpy or especially stained, though dirt on your pillow does not impact your sleeping comfort.
A mattress protector is a removable type of bedding top of a mattress. The right mattress protector can provide protection from microorganisms, allergens, and dust mites. For someone looking for a better sleep solution, a mattress protector might work wonders.
- Keeps the mattress clean & dry
- Keeps the mattress feeling in “like new” condition for longer
- Helps prevent dust mite allergies from acting up
- Helps protect the warranty
