Since most people spend around a third of their life asleep, consumers shouldn’t overlook the safety, comfort, and cleanliness of a mattress. Having a good mattress protector can help extend the life of a mattress.
It Keeps the Mattress Clean
During the night, human bodies naturally perspire, produce oil, and shed dead skin cells. Without a mattress protector, all of this can soak through the sheets and build up in the mattress. Once these fluids sink into the mattress, it’s hard—or impossible—to fully clean it. A mattress protector provides a barrier to help prevent this buildup from seeping in.
It Keeps the Mattress in Better Condition
Even the best mattress won’t last forever, but perspiration and other fluids building up in the mattress will make the quality decrease much faster, whether the mattress is innerspring or foam. This is because they can wear down the materials in the mattress over time, resulting in a less comfortable night’s rest and requiring more frequent mattress replacements.
It Helps Prevent Allergies
Dust mites can be found in any home, but those who have dust mite allergies should reduce their presence whenever possible. Since dust mites feed on dead skin cells, they will be less attracted to a covered mattress, as skin cells won’t be able to build up over time. This can prevent the sneezing, wheezing, runny nose, and coughing associated with dust mite allergies. In addition to deterring dust mites, mattress protectors can prevent other allergens, like pet dander, from building up.
Even the most comfortable and high-end mattress will lose quality after contact with fluids, dust mites, and other types of unwanted buildup. To ensure a comfortable night’s sleep, choose the right mattress and mattress topper, and don’t forget a mattress protector. The high-quality, bench-made mattresses from Buis Mattress provide the comfort needed for a good night’s sleep, so they deserve to be protected from the elements.
