Rocky Mountain Mattress Explains “Anti-Bacterial” and “Anti-Microbial” In Regards To Mattress Products

Tuesday, March 4th, 2008

Many quality mattresses and accessories advertise features such as “anti-bacterial” and “anti-microbial.” Without fully understanding how those features actually relate to your mattress, though, those features carry little meaning.

Why is it important to have an anti-bacterial mattress cover?

Mattresses provide warm havens where bacteria are prone to thrive and spread. Particularly with nightly use – when warm body temperatures heat up the material on the mattress – dangerous bacteria, including E coli, streptococcus, and others, are prone to survive on mattresses.

In addition to carrying the potential to spread disease, some bacteria can cause significant problems for individuals prone to allergies and asthma. The growth of bacteria can also lead to unpleasant odors building up and being emitted from your mattress.

Bacteria are everywhere. The key is having the means to ensure that they do not grow in areas where you have the potential to exposure. An anti-bacterial mattress cover is designed to prevent the growth and survival of bacteria on your mattress.

What does anti-microbial mean?

Anti-microbial products work to not only prevent the growth of bacteria, but also impede the spread and growth of mold and fungi that can develop in mattresses and pillows. Such microbes can lead to respiratory problems, asthma attacks, allergies, and many other problems if they develop in your sleeping area.

Like bacteria, mold and fungi thrive in warm areas like mattresses and pillows. An anti-microbial cover will work to prevent this from occurring, and offers additional protection.

How do I prevent bacteria, mold, and fungi from forming in my mattress & pillows?

Quality mattress protectors are the best way of preventing bacteria growth on your mattress and pillows. Protect-A-Bed is one of the leading protective mattress toppers, and is specifically designed to help prevent the growth of bacteria and fungus. Protect-A-Bed also provides superior protection against dust mites, which can also lead to respiratory problems and allergy attacks.

In addition to being anti-bacterial and anti-microbial, Protect-A-Bed Bed Covers are waterproof, stain resistant, and breathable. The mattress topper helps to moderate temperature, and can be used on all latex, memory foam, and inner-spring mattresses.
