If you own a mattress, there is no doubt that you are going to want to protect it from all of it’s possible opponents – water, bed bugs, mildew and all of the other things that find their way into our mattresses every day. The problem is that sometimes even though we are very careful about protecting our beds, we can still end up with some damage caused by water or other forms of damage. When this happens, it is often more than just uncomfortable to sleep on. It can also be a health risk if the damage is not dealt with properly. A waterproof mattress cover can help to prevent this. If you are going to buy one, make sure you know what your options are so that you can choose the one that is best for you.
Caring Well For Your Waterproof Mattress Cover
A waterproof mattress covers is a cover that is made of a waterproofing material. Usually it is made of some type of vinyl, but there are some that are made entirely of vinyl. These are the ones you want to look for because they are the most durable and will be able to provide you with years of protection. There are also ones made of fabric, but these will not last as long as the vinyl ones. They do wear out over time, though, but like vinyl, they can be replaced easily.
You should know that even though they may be able to withstand high heat, vinyl and fabric will not do so well when it comes to washing machine detergent. While there are some brands that do not have this problem, it is generally a good idea to avoid washing machine detergent altogether. For heavy duty detergent, you should look at brands like Maytag, Clorox and Bayshore. These three brands are probably the most likely to be able to withstand the high heat that is produced by your washing machine. With a waterproof mattress cover in place, you will be able to sleep soundly and safely no matter how hot it is outside.
