The Three Causes of a Sagging Mattress
Typically, a mattress will sink in the middle, often in two or three spots. This is usually caused by a few things. Couples who tend to sleep on 'their' sides of the bed. Or, if a couple sleeps in a 'spooning' position, there is often one sagging area right in the middle.
A third way that this sagging might be caused is by pets! If you have a large dog that sleeps on your bed, it is possible that he could leave a sinking spot in your mattress.
Rotation or Flip It Over
Regularly flipping or rotating your mattress is important. Make sure to flip the mattress every six months, or, if you have a pillow top mattress, rotate it every six months.
