Common sense dictates that you should be covering your bed with a mite mattress protector. Your bedding could fall prey to an infestation of a colony of dust mites at any time, and you would never even know it. Or at least, you won’t realize it until it’s too late, at which point you will begin to suffer from the ensuing allergic reactions that dust mites can induce. Once bed mites invade your bedding, getting rid of them is an entirely different nightmare. So your best bet is to prevent them from violating the sanctity of your sleeping space in the first place. And the best way to accomplish this feat is to cover your bed with a mite mattress protector.
Dust mites are microscopic little insects that have a strong preference to make warm and dark places their domicile and habitat. While they don’t necessarily bite humans, they do emanate particulate matter into the air, that when humans inhale it, can cause respiratory irritation, most notably in the form of allergic reactions. How do you know if your bed has become infested with bed mites? Well, if you observe that you are breathing fine all day long, and then suddenly when you lie down to go to sleep at night, you start sneezing or coughing, then there is a good chance that your sudden respiratory ailment is the direct result of dust mites in your bedding.
So exactly how can mite mattress protection help you in a situation like this? Essentially, the way it works is that the fabric that the protector is made out of is completely impermeable to any microscopic particles and life forms. So if there happen to be any dust mites on your bed, they will not be able to come into contact with you. If there are any dust mites trying to make their way onto your mattress, they will never be able to get past the protective covering. If dust mites do end up clinging to the protective covering, all you have to do is wash it in the laundry to eradicate them.
We human beings spend a good 6 to 8 hours per night lying in one place, sleeping. The last thing you would want is for you to lay there passively while you are suffering with allergies that could have otherwise been prevented by using a mite mattress protector.
Don’t wait until it’s too late to start safeguarding your bedding environment with a mite mattress protector.
