Mattress Protector Reviews

Jake Comfort  |  Updated: May 1, 2019

Let’s face it, mattresses are an expensive investment and they deserve to be protected. The same can be said for high-quality pillows that offer the best night’s sleep and provide the appropriate level of neck and spine support.

However, we use our beds for more than sleeping. People watch TV in bed, enjoy a glass of water, engage in adult play time, and sometimes even eat in bed. The last thing that anyone wants is for the lovely gesture of breakfast in bed to turn into a disaster when the juice or coffee spills all over your brand-new mattress.

Moreover, there are plenty of other reasons you’d want to give your mattress some extra protection. Mattresses are a prime candidate for different measure to reduce allergies to dust and other irritants. Furthermore, it seems that more people all over the country are having to deal with bedbugs. Whether they get to your home from a hotel visit, a visiting guest, or through some manner that you can’t even figure out, there’s almost nothing more terrifying to a new mattress owner than the prospect of bedbugs. This is especially true for those who finance their mattress, as they may find themselves making monthly payments on a product that they can no longer use or enjoy.

That’s why we’ve included this handy guide to some of our favorite mattress protectors. This guide will tell you the most important notes about the different products while at the same time offering an overall rating and price so you can get an idea of what kind of mattress protector is best for your particular situation.

Whether you’re worried about bed bugs, spilt drinks, food, or other stains, getting the right mattress protector can help increase the working life of your mattress, helping you avoid another expensive purchase for a bit longer.

As you can see, there are plenty of high quality mattress protectors on the market, so make sure you pick the one that’s best for your specific concerns. After all, a five-sided mattress protector won’t do much against bed bugs, and one designed for allergies isn’t necessarily waterproof. Weigh your options carefully, and you’ll find yourself with the mattress protector that keeps your investment safe, helping you rest easy at night.
