Mattress protectors are an essential but often forgotten piece of bedding which will protect your mattress and prolong its life. This guide will help you select the best mattress protector for you needs based on those types commonly available in Australia. They help protect your whole family against:
- asthma, allergies and irritants
- bed bug bites
- life's little accidents
- bacteria and germs
They can even help you feel cooler so you can enjoy a restful night's sleep. When you consider that we spend over a third of our lives in bed, a quality mattress protector seems a wise investment indeed.
How do Mattress Protectors work?
Whilst mattress protectors can often be a simple fabric pad that protects against wear and tear, most of our mattress covers boast a vinyl waterproof covering or an advanced polyurethane coating called MiracleMembrane®. This protects your mattress from spills, stains and other accidents and also protects against dust mites, allergens, mold, and bacteria.
Many designs also have an anti-microbe treatment applied to offer further protection against bacteria, mould & dust mites and also provide extended freshness. We also boast many fully-encased designs and clever zipper fastening which lock bed bugs out and protect your skin from painful bed bug bites.
How do you choose which mattress protector is right for you?
Before you spend any money, first think about why you want to buy a mattress protector.
- What are your unique needs and requirements?
- Whose bed is it for?
- Does this person have any special needs or considerations?
- How much protection are you looking for?
- Do you want to guard against stains, prevent against wear and tear, avoid allergies and asthma or protect your mattress from bed bugs?
This will help you narrow down your choices and find the perfect mattress protector for you. It's also a good idea to consider your budget. Avoid opting for a cheaper design for the sake of saving a few dollars and instead look for a high-quality mattress cover that will last for many years to come. Many of our products come with a generous 10-year warranty for added peace of mind.
