Protect-A-Bed - Why mattress protection is important

Recognised as a worldwide leader in mattress protection innovation, Protect-A-Bed products create a dry, hygienic, anti-allergy and bedbug-free sleep zone, while also protecting the mattress from stains.

Hotel owners and operators are becoming increasingly convinced of the need to protect against fluids, dust mites and bed bugs. A mattress represents a considerable financial investment, worthy of protection against spills, mishaps and premature deterioration.

Hoteliers save cleaning and labour costs by protecting against human damage, stains and bed bugs. So, the very first time a mattress is protected from a human accident, the encasement pays for itself.

Why a healthy sleep needs to be provided by every hotelier

As awareness for a healthy sleep environment grows, the need for this to be provided by every hotel increases. Fluids from normal bodily functions leak through our sheets and into the mattress. This causes the growth of dust mites and bacteria, which in turn are a major cause of asthma and skin conditions like eczema. The Protect-A-Bed mattress encasement's miracle membrane provides an anti-allergen barrier, prohibiting the growth of bacteria and creating a healthy sleep zone.

Points of interest

Mattress encasements are an important tool for protecting a hotel's mattress investment as well as providing a healthy sleep environment for a guest. But, when it comes to choosing mattress protection, where should you begin?

To start, look for these five differentiating features to ensure you're getting the highest quality of mattress protection available:

  • best-in-class, commercial manufacturing is critical to an encasement's efficacy; products manufactured with quality control standards at the plant level guarantee production quality consistency
  • double-stitched seams are critical for durability and moisture proofing; the seams are one of the most vulnerable encasement features
  • miracle membrane (polyurethane laminated layers) creates an air vapour porous, waterproof layer that is cool, comfortable and quiet
  • three-sided zipper ensures installation ease
  • six-sided water-proofing creates a barrier between the mattress and guest, preventing bed bugs and allergens
    on all six sides.

How do protective encasements differ from traditional pads?

Many mattress pads are not waterproof, are difficult to clean and do not provide any protection for the mattress.

The Protect-A-Bed Encasements provide a six-sided protection solution. They are breathable, waterproof, stain proof, comfortable and easily washable. Encasements also contribute to the profitability of the hotel by minimising the need to replace mattresses, reducing housekeeping time, the cleaning/drying time and labour costs.

Don't just cover the mattress, protect it

Traditional mattress pads are elasticated or skirted pads that fit on top of the mattress. They were designed for additional comfort; however, they do not offer waterproof benefits and will absorb contaminants. Worse still, they do not protect the mattress from stains, odours, body fluids, human hair, dead skin cells and pests.

Save cleaning costs and increase hygiene

Traditional pads are bulky and difficult to clean. Cleaning challenges vary including the weights and size, and it absorbs lots of water and takes a long time to dry. This is also not environmentally friendly. A Protect-A-Bed encasement can be washed in a washing machine on hot and is quick drying. This will significantly reduce washing costs of the former bulky mattress pad and stop long drying times.

Don't settle for second best

Protect-A-Bed encasements have a miracle membrane that protects the mattress from stains, body fluids, odours and dust mites. It is also certified and lab tested to be bedbug entry, exit and bite proof resulting in a proven track record of helping hoteliers reduce costs and maximise hygiene.
