What is a mattress protector?

A mattress protector is a thin protective layer that resides on top of the mattress and underneath the bed sheet protecting the mattress from dust mite exposures and spillages. A mattress protector encompasses a fitted sheet-style design and is essentially another layer to your bed.

Do I need a mattress protector?

A mattress protector isn't compulsory; however, it is advised. When you consider the relatively inexpensive cost of a mattress protector compared to your mattress, it only makes sense to take measures to preserve the overall quality of your mattress.

Keeps your sleeping environment clean

The human body perspires throughout the night, offsetting oil from our skin and shedding dead skin cells. Whilst this may not be noticeable, this excess moisture and cells will seek through the mattress without a mattress protector. Moreover, accidental spillages, which are almost inevitable at one point or another, can also compromise the quality of the mattress.

Dust mite barrier

Dust mites are the literal definition of 'bed bugs'. They are minute pests that thrive on dead human skin cells and in warm, humid settings and, unfortunately, reside in the majority of homes and, by extension, the bed. However, a mattress protector offers excellent allergy protection and serves as a dust mite barrier.

Additional comfort 

Whilst a mattress topper places more of an emphasis on comfort, a really good mattress protector, such as a bamboo or cotton mattress protector, will contribute towards the overall comfort of your mattress and increase mattress depth for a good night's sleep time and time again.

Prolonged mattress life

As you'd expect, a mattress protector can increase mattress longevity by protecting the mattress from exposure to moisture, dead skin cells and dust mites.
