What does a mattress protector do?

A mattress protector is something that you do not necessarily stop and think about on a day-to-day basis, but let's take a minute to think about it right now.  What is a mattress protector and what does it do for me?

Your bed is a place of rest.  It is your sanctuary from the outside world.  As we sit, rest, and sleep on our bed, we are naturally bringing in dead skin cells, dirt, moisture and bacteria.  Additionally, many sleep with their furry animals, who run around all day and bring in their animal dander to bed.  These materials are notorious for harvesting dust mites. 

With all that said, wouldn’t you want to protect that nice expensive mattress you sleep in every night?

A mattress protector is an essential component to protect your precious mattress against liquids, stains, bed bugs, mites, bodily fluids, and dust.

Potentially, you have never thought about how it could also protect you from allergies.  According to the ACAAI.org more than 50 million people in the U.S. experience various types of allergies each year.  Allergies are the sixth leading cause of chronic illness in the U.S.  This is something that can benefit your health and well being, crazy!!

A mattress protector is not rocket science.  Most quality mattress protectors fit just like a fitted sheet, and can easily be thrown in the wash along with your sheets and pillowcases. Their hypoallergenic design protects against bacteria, bed bugs, dust mites and all kinds of liquids while keeping your mattress looking and feeling new for longer.

So is today the day you protect your mattress and stop sleeping on a dirty bed?
