Mattresses can be a major financial investment—and that means you want to make sure you’re safeguarding them from any potential wear and tear. Protectors provide a physical barrier against stains, spills and allergens like dust mites, mold and mildew.
The most common designs are the five-sided protector, which fits neatly on the bed like a fitted sheet, and the full encasement design, which envelopes the entire mattress in protection from all sides. In addition to ensuring reliable protection, the best protectors are made with whisper-quiet moisture barriers and breathable fabrics that will not inhibit any of the mattresses comfort features.
Many of today’s protection products also include additional benefits—like cooling technologies—that further enhance the sleeping environment.
