At Sit ‘n Sleep, we’re always stressing the importance of a good night’s sleep. We are continuously trying to keep the public aware of the dangers of dust mites and how a good sleep health not only can help you stay thin but can help improve your on-the-job performance as well. Another important aspect of sleep health is ensuring that you have a clean, healthy sleep surface and that your bed is adequately protected from pesky parasites (dust mites, bed bugs) and allergens. The best way to protect yourself, your loved ones and your mattress is by having a quality mattress protector.
What Does a Mattress Protector Do?
Mattress protectors are a must for every bed, regardless of its size or the materials from which it’s constructed. A good mattress protector will be made of a thin, breathable fabric like polyurethane to keep the mattress cool, prevent bunching and make sure it’s a quiet surface on which to sleep. Mattress protectors are great at preventing dust mites and bed bugs because they keep the inside of the mattress from accumulating human oils and skin flakes (their major food supply), sealing off the bed altogether. Mattress protectors can also benefit children and the elderly by preventing the mattress from being stained.
