Choosing the Best Mattress Protector For Your Family

Choosing the Best Mattress Protector For Your Family

Your mattress is a big investment. A high quality mattress protector is how you can protect that investment. Because what good is a mattress that’s filled with allergy-inducing pests, disgusting stains, and funky smells? The best mattress protector keeps your bed clean, pest-free, and looking brand new. A Sleepsteady mattress protector specializes in all that and more.

Do I Really Need a Mattress Protector?

Yes. Yes, you do. Mattresses are expensive with a capital “E.” We’re talking triple dollar signs. You’d never buy a car without insurance, why would you buy a mattress without a mattress protector? The reasons you need one go beyond just keeping it clean:

  • Allergy Sufferers: Dust mites infect our mattresses and feed off our dead skin as it sheds during the night. Mattress protectors stop mites from getting in and ease allergies.
  • Hot Sleepers: If you sweat during the night you’re leaving behind stains and bacteria. The right mattress protector prevents sweat before it even starts.
  • Potty Trainers: Kids-in-training have accidents on their way to going pro. Don’t freak out. A mattress protector blocks liquids and keeps things dry.
  • Accident-Prone Pets: Kids aren’t the only one who have accidents. Don’t get mad at your cuddly friends, just protect your mattress so it’s not a problem when it happens.

What Should I Look For?

Finding the best mattress protector isn’t hard. There are a few key things to keep an eye out for. Do that, and you’ll come out fine.

  • Cooling: You don’t want a mattress protector that heats you up, especially if you’re already a hot sleeper. Look for Tencel fabric. It wicks away moisture to keep you cool and dry.
  • Waterproof: Always make sure your mattress protector has a polyurethane barrier to block out moisture and prevent it from being absorbed by your mattress.
  • Hypoallergenic: Keep pests outside your mattress, where they belong. Dust mites and bed bugs can’t penetrate a high quality mattress protector, so your allergies won’t flare up.
  • Quiet: Some mattress protectors crinkle. After a while, it can start to drive you mad. Get a mattress protector that stays quiet even if you roll around, so you can get a restful sleep.

What Should I Avoid?

This part’s easy. Avoid any kind of mattress protector that makes big promises without anything to back them up. Are they throwing out opinions and calling them facts? Do they claim to be waterproof but reviewers say they leak?

Before you buy anything, see what others say about it first and compare it to what the company says about themselves. You can usually spot a phony from their bold claims versus their one-star reviews. Avoid, avoid, avoid.

Okay, But How Much Will it Cost?

The simple answer is—it varies. That’s also the most frustrating answer, and the one nobody wants to hear. Mattress protectors can break bank accounts at hundreds of dollars, or pinch pennies so you barely even feel it.

We’ve found them as low as $15 and as high as $300. And that doesn’t even include shipping, which can really make prices jump. In the end, more money does not always equal higher quality, and too good to be true usually is.
