How Long Does a Tempur Mattress Last

It’s no surprise that if you’re thinking of buying a Tempur mattress, you want to make sure it’s going to last.

Tempur mattresses don’t come cheap and it makes sense that you want to get your money’s worth.

So how long do Tempur mattresses actually last? What makes them more durable when compared to standard memory foam? And what can you do to ensure your Tempur mattress lasts even longer than the promised 10 years?

What is the guarantee on a Tempur Mattress

Tempur have a 10-year guarantee on all of their mattresses, promising a lifespan of at least 10 years.

But what does this warranty really mean?

Well, it means your mattress will be protected for any manufacturing defects within a 10-year timeframe such as the mattress shape distorting or dipping.

If your mattress is found to have a manufacturing fault within 10-years of purchase date, Tempur will replace the mattress.

You should always check the warranty before making a claim and mattresses bought from non-authorised retailers won’t be covered.

What makes Tempur different? 

So how can Tempur offer such a long guarantee with such confidence? 

Ordinary memory foam is known to break down over time which makes them lumpy, unsupportive, and uncomfortable to lay on. 

Tempur is made with a high-quality visco-elastic material that has been proven to be durable and may even last you much for more than 10 years. 

In fact, many people claim their Tempur mattress has lasted 15 years or longer!

Unlike other mattresses, Tempur mattresses also come with removable covers that can be washed regularly to keep them looking and feeling.

How can I make my Tempur mattress last longer than 10 years?

If you want to get the most out of your mattress, there are many things you can do to increase its lifespan which will help it last much longer than 10 years!

As with any mattress, you should always use a mattress protector. This will help protect the mattress from moisture build-up, dust mites and any other unwanted accidents. 

We would recommend the Tempur-Fit mattress protector which has been designed specifically for Tempur mattresses to be breathable and encourage the best circulation. They are also water-resistant and protect the mattress from dust-mites. 

You should also wash the removable Tempur covers regularly and carefully to keep them clean and prevent moisture build-up.

Avoid eating and drinking in bed. Even with a mattress protector and the removable covers, mistakes can still happen. If the mattress is found with a fault but has water damage or any stains or soiling, then your warranty will be void.

If you have small children and pets, it may even be worth taking out accidental cover on your mattress or making sure you have house insurance to make sure you are fully protected!


If you take good care of it, your Tempur mattress should last at least 10 years or even as much as 15! Tempur mattresses are designed to be durable as well as comfortable and when you spread the cost over such a long period of time then we definitely think it’s a worthy investment.
