3 Reasons Why You Should Protect Your Mattress

*This is a guest post

When we spend roughly one-third of our lives sleeping, finding the right mattress is pretty important. Head, neck and spinal alignment are all key to healthy sleep and can be found in a clean and supportive mattress that suits your sleep positions and other personal characteristics. 

Before throwing a set of sheets on top of your current mattress, consider adding a protector to the mix. One small change could make a huge difference in your sleep quality tonight and for years to come.

Here are the biggest reasons why you should protect your mattress. 

Mattress protectors keep your warranty in good standing. 

Most mattresses come with a warranty. These warranties tend to cover the mattress from any defects in materials or workmanship. If something is wrong with your mattress and it is under warranty, you can expect to get a replacement (or at least a repair).

If you read the fine print on your mattress warranty, you will see that damage to the mattress - from things like stains to fluid or liquid damage from accidents -  will void your warranty.

The key to keeping your mattress free from damage or stains is finding a waterproof mattress protector. There are so many options on the market, at affordable prices, that will feel virtually undetectable under your sheets. 

It is worth reading your mattress warranty in full so that you know exactly how you need to care for your mattress in order to keep the warranty in good standing.

Protectors keeps mattresses in optimal condition and promotes a longer lifespan

Think about all the things that happen in between the sheets of your bed. Aside from sleeping, some of us may also be drooling or sweating. We may even get a midnight snack to eat in bed or take a sip of water. And you know what, accidents happen in bed, too.

All of this moisture, including body oils, fluids and, dead skin cells can find their way into our mattress through our sheets if we do not create a barrier. Over time, this buildup can create a breeding ground for bacteria, not to mention it can add weight to your mattress, affecting your support level.

If you want your mattress to continue to feel as good as it did the first week you brought it home, consider putting on a mattress protector right away. Having to replace your mattress less often saves you money too, and who doesn't like that? 

Mattress protectors help keep dust mites, allergens and bed bugs far away. 

Allergies are a real health issue for many people, which makes preventing dust mites and other allergens from getting into your mattress and setting up shop super important.

There are many mattress protectors on the market that are allergy and asthma friendly. They’re typically encasement protectors, which cover all six sides of the mattress and can be sealed off completely. 

If allergies aren’t a problem, another big reason to consider an encasement style mattress protector is to avoid bed bugs. It just takes one bed bug experience to make you never, ever, want to leave your mattress unprotected again. 

Those who suffer from allergies, asthma or are at risk for getting bed bugs can protect their health and save themselves a lot of time and money by sealing off their mattresses with a protector.
