What is a Mattress Protector & Why Do I Need One?

Posted by Cuddledown ‍ on

You may use a mattress protector every night when you go to sleep, but do you what they are actually for and the benefits they bring? As you may have guessed, a mattress protector sits on top of your mattress and are commonly kept in place with elastic sides or straps. We like to think of the mattress protector as the unsung hero when it comes to a great night sleep. But what specific benefits can they bring to you?

What do Mattress Protectors Do?

Prolongs your mattress life

Mattresses can be an expensive investment. Simply by putting a mattress protector on your bed, you can prolong the life expectancy of your mattress, saving you money in the long run. If your mattress is made with internal springs, a mattress topper will help to take away the pressure placed on the springs, and keeping it covered with a protector is an extra layer of comfort and protection. Over time pressure can cause the internal springs to break, which can lead to a poor sleep quality, and an expensive bill when you have to purchase another mattress!

Simple and Easy To Wash

It’s almost impossible to properly wash your mattress. It’s not exactly something which can be put in the washing machine for a quick spin! That being said, having a mattress protector will help to keep your bed as hygienic as possible. While you can wash a mattress, you certainly can wash a mattress protector. This will help to keep your bed clean and hygienic, which in turn can help to improve your sleep quality.

Added comfort for you

Over time you may find that your body can change, but by adding a layer of soft cushioning, this can help reduce pressure on the body. Without needing to go out and buy a new mattress, a mattress protector will provide lasting comfort. By adding a mattress protector in between you and your mattress, you will really feel the benefit of added suppleness.

What Mattress Protector is right for you?

Cotton Mattress Protector

Cotton Mattress Protectors are one of the most popular choices when it comes to improving sleep quality. Thanks to it’s natural breathability, not only can it help reduce pressure on your joints, but it will also help to keep you cool in summer. Our cotton mattress protectors are also machine washable and dryer safe, meaning it’s really quick and easy to easy to keep your bed as hygienic as possible.

Hollowfibre Mattress Protector

If you’re looking for a mattress protector to use on a bed which feels hard and springy, the hollowfibre mattress protector is a good option. Spacing in-between the fibres provides a lighter feel to the mattress protector due to its ability to absorb some of the pressure being placed on the mattress. Velvet Mattress Protectors

Combine luxury and practicality with a velvet mattress protector. The smooth velvet fabric adds a soft and smooth feel to your bed, while also retaining desired benefits such as great breathability. Velvet mattress protectors also come with the added benefit of being waterproof, which helps to add an extra layer of protection to your mattress. Fitting a velvet mattress protect will certainly help to prolong the lifespan of your mattress while also improving your sleep quality.

Waterproof Mattress Protectors

As the name suggests, waterproof mattress protectors also provide protection from any accidental spills or mishaps on your bed. Our waterproof mattress protectors are a really affordable option so if you’re looking for protection on a budget, this could be a great option for you. With extra features such as an elasticated skirting for a snug fit, a waterproof mattress protector is a great addition to any bed.
