A mattress cover is a relatively cheap piece of bedding that should be a staple in every house. There are a number of reasons why you should use a mattress cover, ranging from extremely practical and pragmatic through to the hygienic and health-oriented.
One of the main reasons that you should have a mattress cover on your bed is that it lengthens the life of your mattress. A mattress is a big investment and you want it to last as long as possible. By having a mattress cover on your mattress, you are protecting it from any chance of staining or soiling. If your mattress gets wet or even mouldy, it will deteriorate quickly.
Closely related to the above point, most mattress manufacturer’s guarantees are void if your mattress is stained or soiled. Therefore, not only are you ensuring that your mattress will last longer, you are making sure that it will still be covered by the manufacturer’s guarantee.
Mattress covers are also fantastic at preventing any allergies. Most mattresses contain a lot of dust and mites, which can cause a number of different reactions in people. The mattress cover acts as a barrier between you and the mites and dust, meaning you are less likely to have an allergic reaction.
Lastly, a good mattress cover will make your bed more comfortable, particularly if it is an old one. They are a great way of both protecting your bed and you as well as making it more comfortable.
