A mattress protector can become one of the most important accessories that you will ever buy for your bed. When you have just bought a new bed, you should be prioritising keeping the mattress in a great condition. New beds for sale can give you a wide variety of options, from beds designed to give your body complete support to beds that give special attention to specific areas of your body so keeping the mattress in the best condition will increase its lifespan. A mattress cover is really important and at The Mattress Warehouse, we keep some of the best mattresses for sale as well as some of the best mattress protectors to keep your bed protected.

Waterproof Mattress Protector

What exactly is a mattress cover?

A mattress cover is what it says it is: a cover. Made using high-quality fabrics, your mattress cover is designed for the purpose of protecting the mattress beneath it. This is a piece of removable bedding that can be cleaned whenever necessary. The mattress protectors will not only protect the mattress from getting dirty but it will also protect the sleeping person from being affected by dust mites and other allergens that could be keeping them awake at night.

You might be wondering why you can’t keep the bed clean using other methods. While you could keep your mattress clean by giving it a vacuum, this will need to be done on a regular basis and then there are the stains that will not be removed by simply vacuuming. When a mattress does not have the right cover or any cover at all for that matter, it can very easily be stained with perspiration and just about any other mess.

If you have a really expensive bed, or luxury fabrics and foams such as memory foam, you will want to make sure that your bed is given that extra bit of protection. The kind of mattress covers you should look for in this case is known as mattress pads and they will not only protect your mattress but they can also add a bit of extra comfort depending on the mattress cover you choose. Conventional mattress protectors are breathable and they can be washed as often as needed although your cover will probably come with instructions for how often the mattress cover will need to be washed.

A breakdown of what you are protecting your mattress from:

  • Every day wear and tear to reduce the ageing of your mattress and give it a longer life.
  • Liquids and spills
  • All kinds of allergens
  • Bed bugs (you will find fully encased mattress protectors can help in this regard)

How the mattress cover protects the sleeper

There are many great benefits to having a mattress protector, for both the sleeper and the bed. If you are the kind of person susceptible to allergies, having such a protector can really make a difference in the quality of your sleep. Keeping dust mites and other allergy-causing elements away from the mattress and away from the sleeper, your mattress protector can be a real saviour.

The different types of mattress protectors

When choosing your new mattress cover, you will see that there is a wide variety of mattresses covers currently available. The mattress protector should not be confused with the mattress topper. A mattress topper is designed to be placed on the top of your mattress and add to the comfort that you experience.

Some mattress covers are designed to just cover the top of the mattress, which is ideal if you are just wanting to protect your bed from general ageing that all mattresses experience over time. You then get the mattress cover that is able to fully encase the mattress, preventing bed bugs from making their home within your mattress while also providing the protection from use.

Waterproof mattress covers are also available and these are great for hotel and hospital use as well as for the beds of children. These covers are made from materials that are easily washed and dried.

Whether your mattress is old or new, it is always a good time to invest in a mattress cover. You can buy your high quality, affordable mattress cover from The Mattress Warehouse and save your mattress from the everyday, common wear and tear and messes. Don’t wait until your mattress is stained and damaged, buy your mattress cover now.
