For allergy sufferers, picking the right mattress is important. Bedrooms contain a lot of allergen triggers, such as dust mites, damp and bacteria. Certain mattress styles can harbour these allergens easier than others. Making them a problem for allergy sufferers. Here are the best mattresses for allergy sufferers.
Most mattresses are now designed to be hypoallergenic. However, foam mattresses are impenetrable to bacteria and dust mites, making them the perfect choice for allergy sufferers. There are plenty of foam mattresses available to suit all sleeping needs, including memory foam, latex, gel foam and reflex foam.
Keeping your mattress as hygienic as possible is going to give you the best chance of fighting off allergens. A mattress protector is a great way of stopping sweat and general grime penetrating your mattress. On average, we lost around 250ml of sweat per night. Which will cause bacteria to form in the mattress and eventually become an allergy ridden hub.
Another extra step to avoid allergies is anti-allergy bedding. Featuring dust resistant fillings, it's a lot harder to become ridden with dust and dust mites. There is plenty of anti-allergy bedding available to suit all needs. Including pillows, duvets and mattress protectors.
Caring For Your Anti-allergy Mattress
Keeping on top of mattress care not only prolongs the life of your mattress it's also important to reduce allergens. As a rule of thumb, we should all look to replace our mattresses every 8 years. This is to avoid a build-up of bacteria and loss of correct support. Flipping or rotating your mattress every three months will help to keep the mattress from collecting bacteria. Giving a mattress a deep clean every 6 months will also help with allergies. Be sure to vacuum to remove any excess dust.
