​The Essential Bedding Item You Never See

Many unseen or unappreciated things in life just make things go better, from a quality jewelry organizer to a well-organized closet, having things secure and in their place gives a sense of comfort. In the bedding business, the unseen thing that makes life go better and gives a sense of security is the simple mattress protector.

Mattress pads, pillow toppers, foam toppers - all are available for those who desire a change in the feel of their mattress. For example, reviewers rave about the comfort and elegance of Downlite’s Cloud Top Ultra Plush mattress topper.

However, mattress and sleep experts do recommend a seven-year mattress replacement cycle, which can come up pretty fast, considering that a good bedroom paint job will last 7-10 years. Adding a mattress protector is important, virtually essential when replacing a mattress.

A new mattress with a comfy top doesn’t require a topper or thick mattress pad (assuming you are happy with the mattress). A mattress protector, on the other hand, is all but required. They are inexpensive, protect your investment, have no visible impact, and shouldn't dramatically change the way your mattress feels.

Did you know that the body can release almost a liter of perspiration per night? Or that millions of dust mites may be living in your mattress? Therefore, a mattress protector is essential to protect your bedding from moisture, mites, and the various problems they bring.

The mattress protector has two main functions:

  • prolong the life of your mattress in general,
  • prevent the development and migration of odors, bacteria, and mites.

The mattress pads perform these functions by:

  • absorbing excessive perspiration,
  • ensuring better hygiene with easy laundering,
  • avoiding mattress stains, and
  • blocking the migration of mites and allergens.
