Default Why is my damn mattress so loud?

The thing creaks and groans everytime I sit or lay on it like it's from the friggin 1920's

Would there be a reason for this? Age? Quality?

What exactly is making this noise?

Springs wearing out?

Could have to do with the support underneath it, take it out of the bedframe and put it on the floor. If it stops making noise, you need to put more support under it when it is in the bedframe.

possibly

but most mattresses have springs in them also, not just boxes, hence a lot of mattresses make noises too.

what do you mean "more support" ?

It's a mattress on top of a box spring on top of metal whatever you call its connected to a headboard.

We have an air mattress. Probably not the most comfortable thing, but when it gets low.. we just pump it up a bit.

And it was only 35$.. hehe..

we have a couple of those. they're great for when guests stay over.

we also use it when we go car camping as it fits perfectly in our 2/3 man. when we bought it we tried it out by setting up the tent in the living room, filling up the mattress inside the tent, lying down on it and then falling asleep for 3 hours.

EDIT: oops sorry, back on topic, maybe humidity has rusted the springs in the mattress?

Put cross-members (wooden slats) between the metal rails that support the box springs.

Default RE: Why is my damn mattress so loud?

So is it the mattress or boxspring?

Now that I think about it more, the noise sounds like the creaking of wood, which is only present in the boxspring

Hmm...
