The Premium Mattress Protector comes from one of the leaders in mattress protection, Protect-A-Bed. The protector helps to protect the mattress from stains and wear and tear, retaining the life of the mattress so it can be used for many years to come. Unprotected mattresses are a breeding ground for the build up of bacteria and bed bugs which can cause irritation and discomfort during sleep. With this Premium Mattress Protector, you will have a dust mite barrier and allergy protection which will provide a relaxing and refreshing night sleep. This Protect-A-Bed protector is also waterproof which is especially useful in cases of incontinence. The breathable cotton cover will reduce humidity and the build up of moisture. The protector can be washed and tumble dried for ease and convenience.
