Some cost several hundreds if not thousands of pounds. If you damage your investment or you have children then your mattress may be subjected to one of life's little accidents. Once this happens what can you do, you cannot just go to the dry cleaners to have it professionally cleaned. The best way to ensure that this does not happen to you is to prevent it from happening in the first place. You cannot banish the kids from the master bedroom and it is not fair for you to stop having your morning coffee in bed.
Mattress protectors are an excellent form of protection, not only can they help with spillages they can also help with allergies as they stop the house dust mite moving from your mattress to the surface where you are hopefully sound asleep. Made from pure cotton they are hygienic and can be removed with ease and washed and returned back on your bed the same day, if you purchase the quilted options they are more comfortable and softer to sleep on, the waterproof mattress protectors versions are also machine washable and offer complete protection no matter what is thrown at them.
The best quality protectors are filled with cotton fibre, they are more generously filled and are manufactured to a higher standard than cheaper alternatives. If you have invested quite a lot in your mattress do not buy a cheaper protector as it will not last very long and the quilting will start to go flat very quickly and reduce the comfort and effectiveness. Coolmax mattress protectors go one step further by reducing heat build up, especially good for those who suffer from hot night sweats or have a memory foam mattress that gets too hot while you sleep. Coolmax wicks away excess sweat and stores it up in the special filling and slowly releases it during the day when the fabric has cooled. Climerelle luxury versions also remove excess heat, another great way to keep cool. Whatever mattress protector or topper you need, be sure to get one before you receive your mattress to ensure you have complete protection from day one.
