Importance of Using Mattress Protectors
For most people, purchasing a mattress is a significant investment. To protect that investment, it makes sense to also include a quality mattress protector at the time of purchase.
A mattress protector will prolong the life of your new mattress, help preserve the mattress’s warranty and increase your level of sleeping comfort. As one of Southern California’s leading providers of mattresses, bedding and sleep related accessories, Sit ‘n Sleep carries a full line of mattress covers and bed protectors in all standard sizes from Twins to California Kings.
The primary benefits of using mattress protectors include:
- Keeping mattresses clean and sanitary
- Extending the mattress’s useful life
- Retaining a comfortable, “as new” feeling by providing a physical barrier against moisture entering the mattress
- Avoiding possible allergic reactions to dust mites and other allergens
- Protecting the mattress’s warranty by preventing stains
Waterproof Mattress Covers
Although mattresses can be superficially cleaned with a vacuum cleaner, removing tough stains is a much more difficult, if not impossible task. Mattress stains result from accidental food and beverage spills, bodily fluids and even perspiration. Mattress protectors that prevent moisture from entering the body of a mattress are typically either flat flannel pads with rubberized or polyurethane coatings or tight-fitting mattress coverings made from breathable fabrics.
Mattress Covers Also Help Protect Health
Mattress covers can also bring relief to allergy and asthma sufferers whose respiratory systems are affected by dust mites and allergens. Dust mites thrive in warm damp, settings, including inside non-protected mattresses and pillows. Adding an allergen filtration mattress protector prevents mites and other causes of allergic reactions.
PureCare’s® Silver Total Encasement Mattress Protector with its MiteTight® seams, clinically proven OmniGuard® Advance Lightweight Performance Fabric and locking zipper provide the ultimate in mattress protection and sleeping comfort. In addition to being a physical barrier against moisture and stains, the six-sided Silver Total Mattress Protection System prevents bed bugs, dust mites, bacteria, mold, mildew and other allergens from entering the mattress. Silver Total mattress protectors work with all mattress types, including innerspring, latex, gel and memory foam.
Just as important as protecting your mattress is keeping moisture and allergens from finding their way into your pillows. The same ProCare® MiteTight® seams, OmniGuard® fabric and locking zipper used in ProCare®’s mattress protectors are also found in their Pillow Protectors. ProCare® Mattress and Pillow Protectors are machine washable, and are endorsed by the Women’s Choice Award and the National Sleep Foundation.
