Why You Need A Mattress Protector

Learn how a mattress protector will keep your mattress clean

None of us care to admit it, but us humans can be pretty gross. We sweat, shed, and secrete all types of unflattering things we’re not exactly proud of. And while (most of us) try our best to stay clean, the truth is we can’t help it. This is why mattress protectors are so important.

Our mattresses absorb all of the sweat, oils, and skin cells that come off our bodies every night. Add a pet to the mix and your mattress can get pretty gross pretty quick.

We recently discussed the importance of keeping your bedroom and mattress clean. Now we want to dive deeper into keeping your bed clean with a mattress protector.

What Is A Mattress Protector?

A mattress protector is fabric made out of specialized fibers and materials. It fits onto your mattress like a fitted sheet and can be removed to be washed in the washing machine. Mattress protectors provide a physical barrier that resists allergens, dust mites, moisture, mold and mildew.

The Health Benefits Of Mattress Protectors

As we’ve already discussed, your mattress gets exposed to some nasty things like skin cells, drool, sweat, body oil, hair, blood, urine, and other fluids. The ability to wash your mattress protector can help you get a much cleaner and more hygienic sleep. In addition, this can limit the number of allergens you’re exposed to. All those dead skin cells on your mattress can attract dust mites. These dust mites can wreak havoc if you’re allergic to them.

More than 50 million Americans have allergies. When you consider how much filth you, your kids, and your pets can track into the house, it’s important to stay clean. Make sure the thing that you spend eight hours a night on isn’t making you sick.
