You’ve just bought a brand-new mattress, maybe a new bed frame, and probably some new sheets, blankets, and pillows. Your sleep experience is about to change. There’s just one question you’ve likely forgotten to ask yourself, “Do I need a mattress cover?”
To answer that question, we need to first tackle what a mattress cover actually is.
A mattress cover is a protective layer that covers your mattress to protect it from damage and help preserve the life of the mattress. An associate at Best Mattress in Las Vegas may suggest getting a mattress cover in addition to your new mattress. Many people see this as an attempt to upsell a customer, but mattress covers offer additional value to customers.
Why A Mattress Cover?
There are four main reasons your new mattress needs a cover.
- It protects the warranty. If your mattress gets a stain, your warranty is void. Even if the stain doesn’t affect your mattress or its performance, the warranty is still void once you stain your mattress.
- Covers reduce the number of dust mites in the air. A lot of people are allergic to dust mites, and your bed is full of them. Without a mattress cover, you’ll suffer more from existing dust mite allergies, or even develop a new allergy to them.
- Covers keep the mattress feeling new. Any kind of moisture, even perspiration, wears down the foams in your mattress, which in turn reduces its lifespan. A cover keeps moisture out of the mattress for a longer amount of time than if you didn’t have one.
- Lastly, a cover keeps your mattress clean. Considering you’ll spend a third of your life lying on a mattress, it’s a good idea to make sure it’s clean. A mattress cover helps keep your mattress fresh and comfortable for longer and prevents it from absorbing any liquid or grease.
While a mattress cover may seem like one more extra, it’s actually a valuable asset that can help your mattress last longer. Mattresses aren’t always cheap, and if you want the best value for your money, you’d be wise to consider buying a mattress cover.
