The Benefits of Using a Mattress Protector
Must-have accessories can have a significant impact on your life that you will never regret buying.
Mattresses are one of those big purchase items where you’re going to be stuck with them for a long time, so investing in a mattress protector is a must.
What is a Mattress Protector?
A mattress protector is designed to protect your bed from the elements, but it also plays an important role in protecting your health.
Mattress protectors can reduce the risk of breathing in dust mites, which causes allergies, asthma. They can also prevent bed bugs from infesting your mattress. The best time to purchase a mattress protector is when you buy a new mattress.
Reasons why you need a new mattress protector
As we use the mattress over time, our bodies not only do we sweat throughout the night, but also expel oils and shed dead skin cells. As these substances are absorbed by the sheets, they penetrate the mattress and are close to impossible to remove.
A mattress protector blocks these substances, which mean you don't have to worry about odours or stains seeping into your bedding.
Keeps Allergies and Dust Mites Under Control
Dust mite allergies are quite common and can lead to issues such as sneezing, runny nose, wheezing, and itchy skin. They feed on skin cells and their faeces and remains get trapped in mattresses, exacerbating symptoms for allergy sufferers.
Helps Protect the Mattress Warranty
A mattress protector can provide a safety net to help with many things like spills and drools from the pooch. They also protect your mattress if there is a stain and do not void the warranty.
A lot of times, people think they will need an extra bed or new mattress if their favourite tears or tear apart too fast because they don't have a mattress protector on it.
How to Choose the Right size Mattress Protector?
When you buy a mattress protector, it is imperative that you make sure the size matches your bed. For instance, if your bed is king size, then you should purchase a king-size mattress protector.
One of the most important aspects of buying a mattress protector is that it fits properly and avoids any crumpled feeling as you use it.
We recommend that when you purchase a mattress protector that is fully fitted with a skirt as opposed to a mattress protector with straps, these tend to snap or stretch out.
In addition, our staff are trained to help you find the correct size for your new Mattress.
Caring for your Mattress ProtectorA good way of knowing when to wash your mattress protector is that you wash it on the same day as your other bedding. This way it is all done in one place.
