The Mattress Protector Dilemma: Do I really need one?


Do you consider mattress protectors a necessity? Or are you more likely to walk right past them in the store, assuming they’re optional?

Whether you’re researching the best setup for a new bedroom set or you’re trying to decide if an older mattress really needs protection, there are some compelling reasons to join the “yes” crowd when it comes to using mattress protectors.

There are many things that your mattress needs protection from regardless of the safe environment that you provide within your bedroom.

A protective barrier makes it much easier to clean up accidents, keeping your mattress sanitary and fresh.

From young children and pets to eating or drinking in your bed, it is important to protect your mattress from the mess and moisture of spills.

A protector will prevent dust mites, pet dander, dead skin cells and other debris that naturally collect in your bedding from reaching your mattress.

A high-quality protector could also save you from uncomfortable reactions to many allergens, including dust mites. By blocking moisture and ensuring that spills are effectively cleaned and dried, you may also prevent the development of mold and bacteria growth within your mattress.

You can order an inexpensive protector online and it will likely do its job at least for a couple years.

If you want to maximize benefits from your investment, consider features like cooling, waterproof and hypoallergenic materials.

You can find mattress protectors made from cotton or polyester, but you might want to look for one made from bamboo or another eco-friendly material. There are many options so consider all possibilities before making your final decision.

Where do you stand now on the mattress protector dilemma? Now that you understand the importance of protecting your mattress investment and your body, it’s time to start the fun process of shopping for a protector that fits your mattress.
