Why It’s Important to Sleep on an Antimicrobial and Hypoallergenic Mattress

We all want to make changes in our homes and lives to improve health and wellness. One thing many people overlook when it comes to ensuring your best health is your mattress. The wrong mattress can have a negative impact on overall health. It’s important to choose a mattress that offers not only comfort and support, but one that is antimicrobial and hypoallergenic too. Read on to learn why this is important.



Microbes Can Linger Keeping You Ill

Think of all the things you carry to bed with you day after day. Many people don’t realize, while spending a sick day in bed, that while you can wash your sheets, there are microbes, pathogens, and bacteria that can seep deep down into the mattress. There they live and thrive while waiting for an opportunity to make you sick all over again. This includes things like:

  • Fungi
  • Bacteria
  • Viral organisms
  • Dust mites
  • Mold
  • Mildew

While you can’t afford to buy a new mattress every time you get a cold or come down with influenza, you can purchase mattresses with antimicrobial properties, like natural latex, or even some memory foam mattresses, to help minimize your risks and limit your exposure.

After all, the last thing you want, once you’ve finally shed an illness, is to succumb to it again when you least expect it.

Why is an Antimicrobial and Hypoallergenic Mattress Important?

You may not realize it, but your mattress could be triggering your allergies. This is especially the case for people who wake up stuffy in the morning, but experience clearing symptoms throughout the day. It’s far more common than anyone cares to admit for them to experience the following symptoms after spending a night on a non-hypoallergenic mattress:

  • Sneezing
  • Coughing
  • Wheezing
  • Watery or itchy eyes
  • Sore throats
  • Skin rashes
  • Hives
  • Sinus Issues
  • Stuffiness
  • Trouble breathing
  • Asthma

The problem, in these situations, is often the mattress. You spend a fair amount of time in close proximity to your mattress each day. Most people spend between seven and nine hours in bed per day. Some people even work, read, or watch television in bed – in addition to sleeping in their beds. This adds to the amount of time spent in bed daily.

When it comes to allergens, they often exist deep within the fabric of the mattress. They include things like dust mites, pollen, mold, mildew, and fungi. Live Science reports that a typical pillow contains more than one million fungal spores. Can you imagine how many are lingering in your mattress?

A natural latex mattress, not synthetic latex foam mattresses, is an Antimicrobial and Hypoallergenic Mattress. This makes them ideal choices for people who suffer from allergies, or have health conditions like asthma and other upper respiratory conditions that make them more vulnerable to common allergens.

Take PlushBeds Botanical Bliss Mattress, for Example

The natural botanical latex foam used to make PlushBeds Botanical Bliss mattress is naturally hypoallergenic, but PlushBeds goes a few extra steps to ensure that our mattresses are safe for your home, your family, and your planet.
