About Mattress Protectors
You put a lot of time, energy, and money into finding the perfect mattress for you. You want it to last the full eight to ten years. But, how? A mattress protector is the ideal way to protect your investment. You simply place the mattress protector under your sheets to protect the mattress from dirt, oils, dust mites, spills, and stains. These can range from a thin padded protective sheet to thicker products that add several more inches of plush.
Mattress Protectors Materials
Cotton, latex, polyester, and nylon are commonly used for mattress pads. These are made with breathable fabrication to fit like a fitted sheet on any mattress type, and is compatible with standard and adjustable bases. These are specially designed to be washed and dried on hot settings for optimal sanitation. Some top options are treated with antimicrobial silver chloride to inhibit bacteria, mold, and mildew that can cause deterioration, stains, and odors.

What Else You Should Know About Mattress Protectors
An older mattress will begin to fill with everything from dust mites to dirt to your own skin cells. This isn’t pleasant to think about, much less sleep on. If your mattress is not hypoallergenic, a mattress protector that is can make for a simple, affordable add-on. Mattress protectors act as a safety layer between a whole host of unpleasant, tiny things and your mattress. No one wants to think about bed bugs. If you want to avoid these nasty little pests for years to come (and you do!) this product helps with this task too. A mattress protector acts as a bedbug barrier! In the event you get one or two bed bugs in your home, a mattress cover will help preserve the integrity of your mattress, making it less likely you’ll have to throw it away. This barrier means you’re less likely for them to find a spot to live and breed.
