Why Use a Mattress Protector?

The Benefits Of A Mattress Protector

You could be buying a new mattress or using the same one for a while either way and wondering if you should get a mattress protector. Mattress protectors are seen as not a necessity and can be over looked. Lets get the record straight: mattress protectors are compulsory to prolong the quality, enhance the comfort of your mattress and keep your sleep environment hygienic. For these reasons we think everyone, no matter the size of the bed should have one. Which is why we have added even more sizes to our range. There are several reasons as to why a mattress protector would be a good idea and this blog aims to highlight those reasons.

Making your Mattress Last Longer

The main and obvious benefit of a mattress protector is that it can be removed and washed for a consistently fresh sleep surface (as washing your entire mattress is a pretty hard!) Having a protector there will prolong the life of your mattress without a doubt. It acts as a barrier and will absorb and catch any moisture which it comes in contact with, especially waterproof mattress protectors.

Protecting Against Allergens

Your mattress will harbour allergens such as dust mites and animal dander that can build up. This can be a big problem with people with allergies and respiratory conditions. Having a mattress protector as a barrier that can be washed regularly will prevent them reaching or becoming embedded into your mattress, ensuring a much cleaner sleeping environment.

Saving You from Bed Bugs

Unfortunately bed bugs are a common issue when maintaining a healthy sleep environment. These creepy-crawlies are very unpleasant and leave bite marks on innocent sleepers, which can be quite painful. Using a mattress protector and washing it regularly is probably the best way of preventing bed bugs.
