A new mattress is an investment you’ll want to protect for years to come – but without a mattress protector, this can be extremely difficult to impossible. Whether you’re looking to protect a child’s Twin or a larger mattress for a Cal King or Eastern King bed, here’s what you need to know on how a mattress protector works – and why every new mattress needs one.
1. A mattress protector will protect your warranty
2. A mattress protector helps keep your mattress clean
Without a mattress protector, dust mites, grime and even mold can seep deep into the cells of your mattress – and stay there forever. Not only can this damage the construction of the mattress and how it feels to you, it can also compromise your health.
3. A mattress protector helps keep dust and other allergens away from your mattress.
4. Some mattress protectors are designed to keep your mattress cool
If you tend to wake up during the night due to overheating, consider a cooling mattress protector. Along with all the same qualities as a standard protector (to repel allergens and keep your mattress clean), a cooling mattress protector is designed with dynamic sleep technology to deflect heat and regulate core body temperature.
