Whether you have older children in your home, you have a bed exclusively for taller guests, or whether you are single and happen to be really tall, and you happen to have a twin bed in your home, regardless of whatever the circumstances may be, it is always a good idea to cover your existing bedding with a twin XL mattress cover.
Even if your twin size bed is longer than usual, happening to fall under the “extra long” size category, then the good news is that you can easily find a twin XL mattress cover that suits your particular needs. As long as your twin XL mattress measures in the standard XL size, you should have no problem finding a mattress covering that is readily available for your bedding. Even if, per chance, your extra long twin mattress doesn’t conform to any industry standard length or dimensions, this does not mean that you would not be able to find an appropriately sized mattress cover for your bedding. You should find a mattress cover shop that is equipped to take orders for custom coverings for your mattress.
There really is no excuse for not covering your existing bedding with a mattress cover. You cannot even use the excuse that your twin XL bed is a nonstandard size, since it is not in the least bit uncommon to be able to find a mattress cover shop that specializes in manufacturing made-to-order custom sized coverings.
Why do you need to cover your mattress in the first place? There are several reasons you may wish to consider protecting your bed with a cover for your mattress:
1. Waterproof mattress protection – Some types of mattress coverings are waterproof and can help in situations that merit the need for it, such as if you or someone you know suffers from bedwetting problems.
2. Dust mite protection – Some types of mattresses covers are designed to be impermeable to dust mites which are known to emit allergens in the air which can induce respiratory ailments.
3. Heating / cooling support – Some types of protective coverings for mattresses are able to help keep you cool during humid nights, and to help keep you warm during colder nights.
4. Enhanced support and comfort – If your existing mattress is wearing out, not as comfortable as it used to be, and does not provide as much support as it once used to, then a mattress cover can help to provide an extra layer of comfort to improve the quality of your sleep.
Whatever the reason may be, from among the above, it is always a smart and prudent idea to invest in a good twin XL mattress cover for your extra long twin mattress.
