Making a mattress last a long time can be a big challenge.

Protecting it from unwanted stains and odors, but also from dust mites and bacteria, can become an increasingly difficult task over the years.

But don't worry, we're here to help!

Why it's important to keep the mattress protected

Keeping the mattress protected is essential to avoid health problems and to make it last longer.

The mattress can accumulate mites: organisms invisible to the naked eye, capable of multiplying very easily, leading to the appearance of allergies, skin and respiratory issues, such as asthma.

There may be about 1.5 million mites housed in our mattress. Scary, isn't it? That's why protecting the mattress is as important as taking a shower every day.

If your mattress is well protected, your health will improve and your nights will be much more peaceful, avoiding the dreaded insomnia.


How to avoid stains and odors on the mattress?

These two words only bring headaches.

When this happens in clothes, it is already a big inconvenience. The mattress is a thousand times worse.

So it's indispensable to protect your mattress as much as you can.

You should avoid using homemade recipes, such as clean the mattress with baking soda or vinegar.

These ideas may be very trendy, but they will only damage the mattress and make it last less time.

To maintain its properties and to prevent unwanted organisms from accumulating, you should vacuum it frequently.

Other important tips


The first step to take to sleep well and free from mites is to keep the room properly aired.

You should do this at times of less heat, as the air will circulate and the room temperature will stabilize.

Warm, humid environments allow mites to multiply even further.

Remember the 1.5 million night companions? We don't want you to have to live with them.



Despite being on the mattress where the greatest amount of mites is found, we should not neglect the other accessories.

It is important to change the linen of bed, the pillowcases of cushions and other accessories once a week.

Thus, you'll be able to prevent dirt and dust from accumulating and bringing you problems that can be easily eliminated.
