Who is sharing your bed and you didn't know

We all love the comfort of our beds, but unfortunately they can become home to allergens and dust mites over time. This can lead to new allergy symptoms or worsen existing ones, like coughing, congestion, and watery eyes.

When you buy a new mattress, you need to protect the mattress from you. Did you know, after 5 years, up to half the weight of an unprotected mattress is made up of your own bodily fluids, skin cells, bacteria and mould? When you have an older mattress, you need to protect yourself from the mattress! 

If you're struggling with allergies, it's important to keep your bed clean and free of these critters. Here are some tips on how to do just that:

1. Vacuum regularly. This will help remove any dust mites or other allergens that may be lurking in your mattress.

2. Use a dust mite cover. These covers fit over your mattress and prevent dust mites from getting in.

3. Wash your bedding regularly. This will help remove any allergens that may be on your sheets and pillowcases.

4. Keep the humidity low. Dust mites thrive in humid environments, so keeping your bedroom well-ventilated will help keep them at bay.

5. Fit good quality mattress and pillow protectors to reduce moisture and dirt getting into you bedding. You would be surprised how. much you will perspire when asleep and this moisture can cause damage to mattresses, making them less comfortable and supportive. A mattress protector is an important part of keeping your mattress clean, dry, and free of dirt, dust, and other allergens.

By following these tips, you can help reduce both the critters sharing your bed and your allergy symptoms and get a good night's sleep.
