What's the point of a mattress protector?

Many people under-appreciate their mattress. As one of the main investments you’re likely to make, the foundation of your sleeping routine needs regular care. Adding a mattress encasement protector is a pre-emptive strike, batting away hazards to keep your bed hygienic and fresh.

Many breathable mattress protectors are waterproof, protecting against spillages or nighttime accidents. Suitable as a baby bed protector up to being used in care home beds, a waterproof mattress pad will help manage stains, preventing you from needing to change your mattress. Bed bug protectors and anti-allergy mattress protectors can stop the bedtime nuisances from spreading, stopping them from irritating you.

There are also cooling mattress protectors, which help to regulate temperature. This breathable mattress design prevents overheating and excessive sweating while you sleep, increasing comfort in the process.

What is the difference between a mattress protector and a mattress topper?

If you’re wondering what the difference is between a mattress topper and a mattress protector, the answer is simple. Mattress toppers are purely for comfort purposes, with memory foam mattress toppers increasingly popular for an additional soft layer. Bed toppers can be used to refresh an old mattress, whereas a mattress protector strives to shield the bed from any avoidable damage from the get-go. As well as reliable safeguarding, there are other benefits of a mattress protector to consider.

How long do mattress protectors last?

Mattress protectors are a great way to keep your mattress fresh, clean and hygienic, and to ensure it lasts as long as possible. Typically, a good mattress protector will last between one and two years. Washing the protector on a cold wash every eight weeks, and drying it naturally, helps it to reach its natural lifespan. You’ll know when it needs replacing as it’ll start to show signs of wear and tear, usually in the form of threadbare patches or holes.

Should you cover your mattress?

A new mattress can be a significant investment and it’s important to keep it looking, feeling, and functioning its best for as long as possible. Whether you’re looking for a king-size mattress protector down to a single mattress protector, it’s a great way to preserve your mattress’ lifespan and keep it free from moisture and other pollutants. A good mattress protector can also help to prevent dust mites and other allergens from flourishing in your mattress.
