The Importance of Mattress Protectors

DreamFit DreamClean Terry Cloth Mattress ProtectorOut of sight, out of mind — right?

That’s how you could describe all the dust and skin particles and sweat that get into your mattress. You may not know it, but your mattress — like any mattress — naturally collects these at night while you sleep. If you do any research at all on the state of your mattress, you’re guaranteed to find something describing the exorbitant amount of dust, mites, and other minute fragments and flecks that get into your sleeping environment.

Not only does this result in a dirtier bed, but it also affects your allergies and overall health. Even though we can’t see the veritable jungle of mites and particles in our mattresses, we breathe them in as we sleep. They can get into our respiratory system and cause problems that range from coughing to inflammation.

While there is no guaranteed way to completely prevent all of these skin and dust particles from getting into your bed, you can certainly take preventative measures to keep your mattress as clean as possible. One of the easiest ways to do this is to invest in a good mattress protector.

Since your mattress’s warranty generally lasts for eight to ten years, you’ll want a protector that will hold up as long as possible. It needs to wash well and hold its size over time. Additionally, it should have a good warranty — something around ten years. If a company is willing to back their product with a good warranty, it often means that they trust that their product to perform well.

LinensforLiving carries a number of well-made mattress protectors that would be a good investment. Malouf is always a quality brand, and they have several excellent options. The Healthy Sleep mattress protector is one of our best-selling choices, and it has a very competitive warranty. And if you’re looking for something for the little one, we even have a good crib mattress protector for you.

With the proper bedding and maintenance, keeping your sleep environment clean is entirely possible.
