I was given a free Protect A Bed mattress pad for review. Protect A Bed has been in business for over 33 years and continues to be an innovator in the mattress protection space. The are located in the Chicago area and sell their product in 45 countries. There have been many imitators in the market but they don’t come close to Protect A Bed in terms of quality.
If you’re going to invest several hundred dollars in a new mattress, the last thing you want to do is get stains on it. To keep your mattress in pristine condition, you need to get a quality mattress protector. Not only will it keep you mattress clean but a quality mattress protector will also allow you to get the full benefits of your mattress.
Protect A Bed has an easy to use website that gives a full description of their product with an accurate assessment of how it will perform. Your order will arrive in about a week.
The top layer is made of Tencel fiber which is a natural fiber made of dissolved wood pulp. It is actually softer than cotton and is being used in all sorts of textiles including pillows and mattress covers.
There’s also the Miracle Membrane layer which is a waterproof but breathable layer that keeps your mattress protected. This membrane also protects against dust mites. These mattress protectors are machine washable but be careful not to run your dryer on on the cotton or hot setting as this will damage them. Instead use a medium or low setting to maximize their life and performance.
Here’s a video from the website that gives a good overview of how their mattress protectors work.
The luxury mattress protectors are quiet and not crinkly like some of the cheaper store brands. What I like best about them is their breathability. You won’t wake up in a cold sweat or feel too hot. Many of the mattresses I have reviewed now incorporate a gel infused comfort layer. To get the full benefit of these comfort layers you need your mattress protector to breathe. Otherwise you have just invested a lot of money in a new mattress without the full benefits.
Buying a quality mattress protector will make all the difference in getting maximum performance out of your mattress. Protect A Bed mattress protectors are an affordable solution. I recommend buying from them direct so that if you aren’t satisfied with the product you can work with them directly.
