What is a Mattress Protector?
A mattress protector is very similar to the fitted sheets you use to cover your mattress, except the protector becomes the first cover.
It’s primarily used to protect your mattress - to prevent liquids from seeping through and from trapping heat.
A mattress protector is an inexpensive way of protecting your mattress and getting it to last longer.
However, if you still need convincing, why not have a look at:
Four Reasons You Need a Mattress Protector
- A Mattress Protector Keeps Your Mattress Clean.
If you didn’t realise it already, human beings are kinda gross.
How many times have you accidentally bits of that morning snack on the sheets? Or maybe you wake up to find out that your kid had an ‘accident’ in bed?
And how often have you woken up in a sweat after a nightmare?
The mattress protector prevents all these liquids from seeping through.
Think about how easy it is to wash a mattress protector? You've just got to throw it in with the laundry.
Now think about how difficult it is to wash your mattress.
You’re just going to feel a lot cleaner with one. And really, how often do you flip your mattress, let alone clean it.
- To Protect Yourself from Dust and Dustmites.
Ever found yourself trying to go to sleep and constantly sneezing at the same time?
Mattresses are magnets for dust. Which means you’ve got to protect yourself from allergies and also, dust mites!
It’s okay if a day or two goes by like this.
But your mattress is meant to last you for years. Do you really want that much dust collecting?
Which is why your best bet against dust is a mattress protector.
And also, against bed bugs. Just saying.
- It Increases the Shelf Life of Your Mattress
A mattress is an investment. If you take really good care of it, it will last you as long as ten years.
But like we first pointed out, with things like human sweat and just general humidity and in the air, your mattress absorbs this all.
You know how your kitchen sponge is really soft the first time you use but it gets harder and rougher with usage.
Your mattress reacts the same way to moisture.
If you want to prevent your mattress from getting lumpy too quickly, you’ve got to protect it.

- Your Mattress Protector Protects Your Warranty.
Did you know that your warranty could be bypassed if there are stains on the mattress?
Let’s say you rip off the covers. How often have you found this weird rusty yellow colour in the inner corners and edges of the mattress?
Which is why you need to keep your mattress protected from all kinds of spills, stains or accidental mishaps. And you can do that with a mattress protector.
After all, they’re a lot easier to wash and replace than your mattress.
When buying any protector, you want to check for reviews and also the kind of material it’s made of. You see, the best mattress protectors should always allow for breathability.
