Why waterproof Mattress and Pillow Protectors are essential in the bedroom.

We spend a third of our lives in bed, so wouldn’t you want it to be clean and healthy?

Mattress and Pillow protectors offer a lot of benefits above protecting your mattress from spills and stains, they are key to helping protect your well-being by creating a healthy sleep environment.

So, what are some of the key reasons everyone should have a mattress protector on their bed?

Waterproof Barrier

The waterproof barrier stops fluid and moisture from passing through which eliminates the growth of mold and bacteria.

Viral and Allergen Protection

The waterproof barrier acts as a two-way shield, not only does it stop anything passing from you to your mattress and pillows such as skin flakes and fluid and moisture, but it also stops allergens and viruses that may already be present in your bed from passing back to you when you hop in to sleep at the end of the day.

Dust Mite Protection

Dust mites are the creepy little critters that live in your mattress and feed off your skin flakes and thrive in humid conditions, starving dust mites kills them and stops them from multiplying in your mattress and causing allergic reactions.

The waterproof barrier on your mattress protector acts as a barrier that stops your skin cells from entering your pillow and mattress. So as long as you wash your bed linen regularly you can eliminate dust mites from your bedding.

Extend the life of your mattress and pillows

You’ve probably seen the old stained pillows and mattresses you throw out after sleeping on for years, and you probably assume this is what normally happens. Unfortunately, that’s not quite right… in fact our bedding stains over time due to perspiration soaking into them, and the average person loses over four cups of water per night in perspiration!  

Easy to Clean

Mattress and pillow protectors are a lot easier to clean than a dirty mattress or pillow, so all Airley protectors are hot machine washable and dryer safe. That way, if any accidents do happen… no worries… your bed will be clean again with a quick change of bedding.

To sum it all up, you may have thought you don’t need a protector for your bed or pillows, but mattress and pillow protectors are a simple and effective way to improve the quality of your sleep and keep you healthier whilst keeping your bedding fresh far longer than if it was left unprotected.
