Every night, we lose up to half a litre of body fluid such as sweat on average, and your bed can quickly become drenched in unwanted moisture. Without a mattress protector, that moisture is going straight through to your mattress. As a result, this creates the perfect breeding ground for dust mites, mould and bacteria.
Waking up with a stuffy or runny nose, itchy eyes, coughing, wheezing, and sneezing? Dust mites are the most common cause of these allergy symptoms. Dust mites feed on dead skin cells from your family and pets. The highest concentration of dust mites can be found in your bed, so a mattress protector is a crucial investment.
These parasitic biting insects feed exclusively on human blood. They emerge at night to feast on you when you’re asleep, then crawl back to their hiding place in your mattress, engorged and undetected. Unprotected mattresses provide the perfect environment in which bed bugs can thrive, and a good mattress protector can give you a bed bug-free sleeping space.
Most mattress warranties are considered null and void if there are any stains or spills on the mattress. The only way to retain your mattress warranty is by using a good-quality mattress protector. This will ensure that bacteria, allergens, bed bugs or anything else are unable to enter your mattress, giving you a safe, clean and hygienic sleeping environment.
