Several Reasons You Should Use A Mattress Protector

It is one of the most important mattress items you will ever own. Unfortunately, there appears to be considerable confusion over the function of a mattress protector. When I propose a mattress cover to a customer while selling a mattress, I frequently receive an immediate “no” from the buyer, who is terrified of being “upsold.” In other instances, the client grins and cheerfully emphasizes that they do not “pee the bed,” completely unaware that the human body includes a variety of different fluids. I’m perplexed as to why so many people sleep on mattresses without protecting them. So, why do we need a mattress protector?

What Role Does A Mattress Protector Serve?

  • Preserves the mattress’s cleanliness: Human beings are repulsive. We all sweat at night. Each of us has oil on our skins. Some of us wear makeup. Both of us shed dead skin cells. Several factors can result in a “wet patch” on the bed, including the following: Much of this may leak through your sheets and onto your mattress.
  • Preserves the mattress’s “as new” condition for an extended length of time: Perspiration (or other forms of sweat, such as a spilt beverage) can degrade the foams in the mattress, reducing its comfort life. It has the same impact as a used kitchen sponge. And even if only a trace of moisture enters, it accumulates over years of nightly usage. Without the protector, you may need to replace your mattress more frequently.
  • Assists in the protection of warranties: As I said in my warranty article, a stain will void the guarantee. The warranty is null and void, even though the stain has nothing to do with the warranty issue.

For all these reasons, everyone requires a mattress protector. However, contrary to popular belief, a mattress protector is not synonymous with a mattress cover. Mattress pads are primarily used to add cushioning to mattresses and are not waterproof.

Mattress toppers are also available, which are far thicker than mattress coverings. If you have a foam topper, I recommend layering it with the mattress protector to protect both the topper and the mattress.

Final Thoughts

A mattress protector of some sort should be used on any mattress. It is the same as leaving your expensive smartphone unprotected if you don’t have a mattress protector. If you do not already own one, purchase one, even if it’s only $30. It is more sanitary, and it helps protect your investment, which may be worth up to $1000.
