The purchase of new mattresses represents a considerable financial investment. It is therefore important that through the use of a Waterproof Mattress Protector you inexpensively protect this investment from everyday spills and stains and early deterioration. It will also ensure your guests are guaranteed a healthier nights sleep.
We all know that mattresses and pillows can yellow over time. Many of us think this is just a normal part of bedding, but it does not have to be and shouldn’t. Those stains are often caused by ones perspiration (the average person losing an average litre of water a night), shredded skin flakes (yuk) and everyday spills and stains that seep into bedding, slowly becoming food for dust mites, whilst also promoting the growth of mould and bacteria. A waterproof mattress protector, protects you, your staff and guests from these nasties and early deterioration.
People are also becoming a lot more aware of the importance of a healthy nights sleep. By using a waterproof mattress protector, you not only ensure this but can also address health issues many of your guests (and housekeeping staff) may have.
Just consider the following health statistics:
Recent studies show that as much as 30% of the population are allergic to dust mite waste. Despite their tiny size, dust mites produce 10-20 waste particles per day! Each of these contains a protein known to trigger allergic reactions and asthma. If that weren’t bad enough, these proteins are so light that they disperse into the air, ready for us to inhale when disturbed by everyday activities such as vacuuming, dusting or moving about in bed. Attempts to eradicate dust mites are likely to be unsuccessful, however if allergic a quality mattress protector with an allergy barrier can minimise exposure.
10% of the population suffer from Asthma, which is often triggered by dust mites and other allergens found in bedding. When purchasing a Mattress Protector, for the well being of your guests you should always look for the blue butterfly logo, which indicates that a product is approved by the Asthma and Respiratory Foundation of New Zealand’s Sensitive Choice Program.
One in three, at some stage throughout their life, suffer from Eczema of which dust mites can also be a cause. Certain bedding materials can cause irritation to eczema, psoriasis and dermatitis sufferers. Quality Mattress Protection brands offer some fabrics such as TENCEL® which is approved by the Eczema Association of Australasia as been sensitive skin tried and tested.
30% of children are bedwetters. This combined with the loss of perspiration during the night, means waterproofing is essential to protect your mattress investment.
