Made4Utah: What you need to know before buying a new mattress


SALT LAKE CITY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) – Experts say that getting enough quality sleep is an important contributor to overall good health and what you sleep on can impact the quality of your sleep.

Schuyler Northstrom is President and CEO of Uinta Mattress, based in Salt Lake City. Northstrom says there are things consumers should know about selecting a mattress, but the decision really comes down to one simple thing.

“It’s what feels comfortable to you, that’s it. If you spend the time to go find something that just feels good.”

Northstrom says shoppers should spend some time getting a good feel for the mattress while in the store. 

Uinta Mattress has been in operation since 1984, formerly known as Diamond Mattress. Northstrom took over operations nearly three years ago. He says they serve a large part of the Uinta Mountain region and wanted the company’s name to reflect that reach.

How often should you replace a mattress? Northstrom says there’s no magic number and goes back to that simple rule – if your mattress doesn’t feel good any more, it’s time for a new one.
