Benefits of Mattress Protectors

Protecting Your Mattress and Your Health


Mattress protectors are important for two major reasons: keeping your mattress free of stains, and preventing exposure to dust mites, microbes, and other potential allergens. While mattress protectors are beneficial in other areas, there are the two most important.

Keeping Your Mattress Free of Stains


Did you know that even the smallest stain on your mattress will void your mattress warranty? A mark from a pen, a smudge of makeup, or a spilled soda stain will erase your valuable warranty, meaning that the manufacturer will not honor any claim on your stained mattress. Since mattresses are not cheap, a warranty can be very valuable. It is in every sleeper's interest to protect the mattress warranty as best as possible. It's important to make your mattress protector is waterproof. Spills can cause stains, so if you purchase a protector that isn't waterproof, your mattress won't receive full protection. Since the mattress protector keeps your bed clean, it can get pretty dirty itself, so make sure it's machine washable. Washing a mattress protector is significantly easier than cleaning a mattress.

Healthy Sleeping


Mattresses can quickly become a breeding ground for dust mites, microbes, and other allergens. If you suffer from allergies of any kind, it's very important that you protect yourself from potential allergens, especially if you frequently wake up with a runny nose, itchy eyes, or have difficulty breathing. Limiting your exposure to microscopic dust mites and other allergens will go a long way in helping you get healthier nights of sleep. Since sleep plays such an important role in your overall health, it is in your best interest to make you resting hours as healthy as possible. We spend a third of our lives sleeping, and mattress protectors can help to ensure that time is well spent.
