As you might expect, the job of a mattress protector is mainly to keep your prized mattress as clean and hygienic as possible. After all, it's natural for even the most fragrant amongst us to perspire slightly as we sleep, and it's far nicer - not to mention healthier - to let a washable protector deal with our natural body oils than allowing them to be absorbed into your mattress.
Despite this, however, you’d be surprised at how many people shun the idea of purchasing a protector as they assume they’re simple for ‘bed wetters.’ In reality, that couldn’t be further from the truth and using such products offer a range of benefits not only from extending the life of your mattress through a whole host of health benefits for those who suffer from allergies.
Many ask themselves whether or not a mattress protector is a worthwhile investment and, as far as we’re concerned, it is. Mattresses don’t come cheap and, at the very least, this is a great reason to protect your purchase. A protector can significantly extend the life of a brand new mattress, however the real benefits also come in the form of this extra layer drawing away body moisture whilst you sleep, preventing ‘sweat patches’ and preventing symptoms commonly associated with exposure to dust mites of the breathing in of dead skin (yuck!).
A Fantastic Range Of Waterproof Mattress Protectors
As part of our range of mattress protectors, we also offer a fantastic collection of waterproof mattress protectors, those which protect against all kinds of spills and accidents, and are a completely discreet way to give confidence to the elderly as well as young children in cots or their first beds - not to mention all those of us who like to enjoy a cup of tea in bed on a Sunday morning. Whilst you may remember your mum putting a protector on your bed when you were little to make mopping up those little accidents a bit easier, as far as we’re concerned, no bed should be without one, especially given how affordable they can be.
In addition to shielding mattresses from spills and accidents, mattress protectors can also guard sleeping people against bacteria and dust mites, which can be a massive help if anyone in the family suffers from asthma or allergies.
These are two of the most common health-related reasons why someone can’t sleep and the solution may be as simple as investing in a mattress protector. All of the products in our protectors range are fully non-allergenic and with prices starting from as little as £6.99, there really is no reason to suffer.
Of course, to ensure allergies caused by dust mites and the like are completely ruled out and that there’s no worry about symptoms appearing, it’s advisable that all bedding (including pillows, duvets, bed linen and toppers) is purchased from an anti-allergy range. Don’t suffer in silence; if you’re waking up with symptoms such as sore eyes, a blocked nose or those commonly associated with asthma, do yourself a favour and consider whether or not your bedding could be part of the cause.
The good news is that if this is the case, a simple solution for relieving and preventing the symptoms is to simply purchase anti-allergy bedding.
Of course, whilst protecting your mattress is one of the primary reasons to invest in a protector, whilst we would usually recommend a mattress topper if you really want to add comfort to night times or extend the life of a favourite mattress, we also stock a range of products in our collection which offer additional comfort and luxury as well as protection.
It has recently been recommended that you replace your mattress every 8 years; a period which, to many, seems surprisingly short. Whilst many mattresses, after this time frame, will have started to become worn and slightly uncomfortable, it’s not always the case that you must replace after this period...so long as it’s been well looked after.
A mattress which has been given the love, care and attention it deserves can and will last more than 8 years, however in order for this to be the case, it’s advisable you purchase a mattress protector when you first buy. That way, you’ll protect it from stains, spills and accidents, helping to prolong it’s life and ultimately increasing the length of time before you’ll need to replace it.
