Mattress Protection Facts: An Introduction to Comfort Supply Company

You will spend one third of your life sleeping and we know that where you rest makes all the difference. We thrive on creating quality products to ensure that our customers receive premium comfort and durability. 

You can easily access information about mattress pads and toppers through a simple web search, but it may be difficult to differentiate truth from fiction. Our goal is to break down some common misconceptions and unknown facts about mattress protectors and toppers.

A mattress pad and a mattress protector essentially serve the same purpose. Fact or fiction?

Most people believe that a mattress pad only adds comfort as an extra cushion, but it can serve a variety of purposes. Mattress pads primarily add comfort, but some also provide performance features that inhibit bacteria growth, protect against allergens, and offer cooling and waterproofing qualities. By contrast, a mattress protector serves the main purpose of extending the life of a mattress through protecting your mattress from stains, spills, allergens, and dust mites.  Some, like Opulence and Arctic from Comfort Supply Company, even offer patented cooling technology to dissipate heat and humidity and to help you stay cool and comfortable while you sleep.

Dust mites are a major cause of allergic reactions in households. Fact or fiction?

  In truth, dust mites don’t bite or sting, but according to the American College of Asthma, Allergy & Immunology, they do leave behind fecal matter and body fragments that can make you sick. Dust Mites are one of the most common household allergens and prefer warm, humid environments at or above 70 degrees Fahrenheit.  One of the best ways to protect against dust mites is to invest in a high quality mattress protector with allergen and dust mite protection.  

Mattress protectors extend the life of a mattress, but they don’t provide benefits for the humans sleeping on them. Fact or fiction?

Some mattress protectors are designed with specific patterns to help with airflow, which increases sleeping comfort. The Essentials Stretch Knit Mattress Protector from Comfort Supply Company has a dimple knit pattern that offers optimum airflow. The best mattress protectors offer an additional layer of comfort combined with waterproof, allergen and dust mite protection. Some can inhibit bacterial growth or offer solutions for sensitive skin, while others offer ultra-high moisture wicking patented cooling technology like Coolest® technology from Comfort Supply Company.

Does packaging matter?
