Rebuild to Hybrid 14 Sep 2020 08:21 #1

Doing a lot of reading and I am going to be looking at rebuilding my mattress to a hybrid. The one unknown I have is there any way to confirm before taking all my current mattress apart that there is no issue with the springs.

The current mattress is a Serta Seneca with pocket coils.

Hi CaptCrunch.

Welcome to our Mattress Forum :)

is there any way to confirm before taking all my current mattress apart that there is no issue with the springs.


Innersprings as a support core are, as a rule, quite resilient. Pocket coils have great shape-conforming abilities and are rarely the weak link in a mattress.

That said, without opening the unit is hard to say if there are any issues with it because it depends on a number of factors. Here are a few questions that will help you determine how likely it is that the coils can be reused in a DIY.

- How old is this mattress and how much use has it been getting (seasonal vs daily use)?
- Have you been the primary sleeper on this mattress? If so…
- Consider you/partner's height/weight (BMI)? ….to determine the overall level of compression the mattress has been subjected to.
- Type of mechanical stress (kids using it as a trampoline vs lying down or sleeping?

If you are not currently experiencing any pain or sagging on the mattress, would be a good indication that the unit maintained its integrity. If you are, however, experiencing sagging or pain, then the coils may very well be part of the problem and need replacing.

Looking forward to more information!
