Are you thinking about investing in a new mattress for your bedroom soon? If so, you’re likely going to have to spend anywhere from a few hundred to a few thousand dollars on it. The good news is that you might be able to get anywhere from 7 to 10 years of life out of your new mattress. That means you won’t have to worry about replacing it again anytime soon.
But in order to make it last that long, you’ll need to take good care of it. Covering it with one of the best mattress protectors on the market today is a great start and will increase its chances of sticking around for at least a decade.
By purchasing a mattress protector like the Protect-A-Bed Premium Mattress Protector, you’ll protect the big investment you made in your new mattress. Check out some of the biggest benefits of using mattress protectors below.
Helps a Mattress Stay Clean
As long as you put a fresh set of sheets on your new mattress when you bring it home, you might think you’re doing everything you need to do to keep it clean. But this couldn’t be further from the truth!
No matter how durable your sheets might be, they’re not going to be any match for the oils and perspiration that come off your body at night. These things can work their way through sheets and set up shop in your mattress.
When this happens, it won’t be long before your mattress starts to stain and even smell. It could become so unpleasant that you may need to either have your mattress professionally cleaned or replace it altogether.
Mattress protectors can stop this entire process from playing out. You can sweat as much as you want at night and not have to worry about your perspiration or the oils from your skin making your mattress dirty.
The only thing you’ll have to worry about is removing your mattress protector from your mattress every so often to wash it in the washing machine before putting it back on.
Makes It Easy to Clean Up Spills
There are tons of reasons why you shouldn’t eat and drink anywhere near your bed. When you eat and drink in bed, it can increase your chances of dealing with everything from health problems to pest control issues.
Eating and drinking in bed can also increase your chances of spilling something that makes its way down to your mattress. And if you don’t have a mattress protector in place, whatever you’re eating or drinking could leave a stain behind.
These stains could be difficult, if not impossible, to remove. It could take you several hours to make the stains disappear, and it could cost you a fortune when it comes to cleaning supplies.
It would be a whole lot easier to let a mattress protector like the AllerZip Smooth Mattress Encasement do its job. In the rare event that you do decide to eat and drink in bed, it won’t end with you doing irreparable damage to your mattress and being forced to look at a stain for the rest of the time that you have it.
Stops Mold Growth
If a liquid is ever able to come into contact with your mattress, it could do more than just stain it if you don’t clean it up right away. When moisture sits on the surface of or inside of a mattress, it can lead to mold growth before long.
That mold could cause you to suffer from all kinds of health complications over time, especially if you sleep on your mattress without realizing it’s there. From a persistent cough and a sore throat to breathing problems and chest tightness, mold exposure can take a toll on you.
A mattress protector will eliminate the chances of mold growing on your mattress. You’ll sleep much better at night knowing that mold isn’t going to affect you.
Protects a Mattress Warranty
Most of the mattresses that are sold today come with a warranty attached to them. If your mattress is ever found to be defective, you can have it replaced at no charge to you when you take advantage of your warranty.
There are, however, some things that can void your warranty. Your warranty will be void if:
- You don’t provide proper support under your mattress in the form of a box spring or a bed frame
- You choose not to rotate and flip your mattress as instructed by your mattress manufacturer
- You spill something on your mattress (regardless of whether or not you clean it up)
In theory, a small spill on your mattress might not seem like such a huge deal. Surely a few drops of water or even something like soda or coffee wouldn’t do too much harm to a mattress, right?
Wrong. Most mattress manufacturers claim that even a small amount of liquid can cause a mattress to start to break down. It’s why they almost always refuse to honor warranties when a mattress has stains on it.
It’s yet another reason to protect your mattress with a mattress protector like the Glideaway – Ikkiertok Mattress Protector. The last thing you want to do is find out your mattress warranty is void if you ever need to use it.
Provides More Comfort
Make no mistake about it: When you buy a new mattress, it will be plenty comfortable with or without a mattress protector. Whether you have a mattress from our Solid Foam Collection or one from our SomniGel Collection, you’ll be blown away by how great it feels when you lie down on it.
But if you can believe it, you can make your mattress even more comfortable by sticking a mattress protector over it. A cotton terry towel mattress protector, in particular, will help produce the most comfortable sleep experience you’ve ever had.
Offers Protection From Bed Bugs
From the 1950s through the 1990s, bed bugs weren’t really a problem in America. Having bed bugs in your home was almost unheard of.
But in recent years, bed bugs have made a strong comeback in homes all across the country. No matter how clean you keep your house, there is a chance that you could be forced to find a way to rid your home of bed bugs at some point.
You can lower the chances of bed bugs turning your mattress into their mattress by:
- Buying new mattresses as opposed to purchasing secondhand ones when it’s time to put a new mattress in your bedroom
- Reducing any clutter in your bedroom and the other parts of your home
- Vacuuming your home on a regular basis to remove bed bugs from carpeting
- Keeping luggage that you’ve used to travel away from your bedroom
You can also stop bed bugs from infiltrating your mattress with a mattress protector. It’ll prevent bed bugs from finding hiding spots in your mattress and make it simple for you to spot them.
If you’ve ever had a bed bug problem in your home before, you know how unnerving it can be and how long it can take to eradicate it. By throwing a mattress protector on your bed, you can avoid the headaches associated with bed bugs.
Mattress protectors are also very effective when it comes to protecting a mattress from dust mites. They can help people avoid allergic reactions that come along with them.
Costs Very Little
When you consider the many benefits of using a mattress protector, you might guess that they cost at least a few hundred dollars. But you won’t have to pay anywhere close to that in most cases for mattress protectors.
There are some that’ll run you between $100 and $200. But you can find one like the Slumber Shield Luxury Terry Top Mattress Protector for just $39 to $59.
That is a very small price to pay for something that could save you a lot of time, money, and effort over the years. It’s also a small price to pay for the peace of mind that you’ll get when you have a mattress protector under your sheets.
It’s actually such a great price that you might want to think about adding pillow protectors to go along with your mattress protector. For as little as just $10, you can snag pillow protectors like the Protect-A-Bed Premium Pillow Protector and protect your pillows from spills, dust mites, bed bugs, and more.
