Which Mattress Accessories Should You Buy To Help Improve the Performance and the Life of Your Mattress?

Mattress shopping can be an expensive and time-consuming process. Once you’ve found the perfect mattress, what should you purchase to help protect your investment and extend the life of your mattress?

Stains on a mattress void the mattresses warranty. Moisture can cause the foam padding to break down prematurely and can weaken the strength of the steel coils. A mattress protector is the first line of defense against this. There are several types of protectors to choose from. An encasement cover fits completely around the mattress and usually closes with a zipper. Encasement covers are a great option for allergy sufferers who need additional protection against dust mites and bed bugs. However, it is important to select an encasement cover made from breathable material. Vinyl or plastic covers can trap moisture which can cause mold growth.

A five-sided protector is a popular option and goes over the mattress like a fitted sheet. This type of protector is easy to take on and off for cleaning. It does not cover the bottom of the mattress, which can let in dust mites and bed bugs.

There are also padded mattress covers that add a layer of softness on top of the mattress. This additional padding can be helpful when adjusting to a new mattress and can possibly slow the wear on the mattress. Before purchasing a padded mattress cover, you should read the care instructions. The additional filling may not be machine washable, making clean up more difficult.
