Why a Mattress Protector Is a Bedtime Game-Changer

At Dodd’s furniture stores, we consider ourselves mattress experts (not to mention having a great selection at unbeatable prices, but we'll get to that). Whether you’re in the market for a new mattress, recently bought one, or just looking to prolong the life of your current mattress, getting a mattress protector is a game-changer. A mattress protector can enhance your night’s sleep by adding an extra level of comfort you may not know you needed. If you aren’t in the market for a new mattress for financial reasons, a mattress protector can transform your average bed into a lavish one.

Sleep should be comfortable, and if you’re not feeling bliss when you lie down, a mattress protector can help you achieve this. Not only does a mattress protector make your bed more comfortable, but it can also keep your mattress looking as fresh as the day you unwrapped it. For those who get the night sweats, lay a protector down to trap the moisture so it doesn’t seep into your mattress.

Keep Your Mattress Clean
Let’s be honest, our bodies are kind of gross. We produce oils from our skin, we wear makeup, we sweat, and we shed dead skin cells. When all of this is happening, it could be getting into your mattress and getting a stain out can be next to impossible. If you have a mattress protector, all of your gross body stuff can trap itself in the mattress protector. Remember, you can always wash your mattress protector, but you can’t just throw your mattress in the laundry machine. You’ll also want to protect your warranty. Stains will void your mattress warranty, plain and simple. By using a mattress protector, your warranty will also be protected.

Dust Mite Allergies

Allergies are so common nowadays, and they can lead to many symptoms such as a runny nose, wheezing, sneezing and shortness of breath. As we mentioned earlier, we shed dead skin cells, and dust mites love eating them. Protect yourself from dust mites with a mattress protector so you don’t spend your nights sneezing and wheezing.

Added Comfort
Even if your bed is oh, so comfortable, adding even more comfort never hurt anybody. A mattress protector, like a memory foam topper or duck feather topper, can enhance your sleep and make you love crawling into bed even more than you did before.

Help with Neck and Back Problems
If you’re having problems with your neck or back, a memory foam topper can add an extra level of support that can help with sleep posture and alleviate some of your neck or back issues. No one likes to wake up having back and neck pain from sleeping so protect yourself.
