Keep Your Bed Clean and Sleep Better!
“I can’t breathe!”
These may be the most terrifying words any parent has ever heard. It’s especially bad when it comes unexpected, in the middle of the night, when everyone was supposed to be sleeping peacefully.
Asthma is scary. Many people are affected by it, and even mild cases cause anxiety and dismay. Asthma and allergies often go hand in hand. Exposure to an allergen can bring on an attack, and the feeling of not being able to get a full breath of air can cause panic in the calmest individual. It’s a basic survival response, but it makes everything worse.
That’s why it’s so important to be proactive about these things. Preventing exposure to allergens and irritants is really your best hope. In order to plan ahead, though, you need to know about dust mites. Dust mites are tiny little insects that are everywhere. They feed off dead skin cells, and then when they’re done digesting, they poop, and that’s the real irritant. That’s right – if someone has a “dust allergy,” what they really mean is that their body has a strong reaction to the feces of a tiny insect. This reaction can take many forms, like itchy skin or sneezing. A stuffy nose. Snoring. Or, worst of all – an asthma attack.
Luckily, humans are smarter than dust mites, and we’ve invented all sorts of things to keep those disgusting little bugs at bay. First off is regular hygiene. Removing dust and dirt helps to starve dust mites, and to remove them from your living space.
It’s also vital to keep dust mites from getting into your bed and pillow. Think about it – your pillow is in contact with your face more than anything else. You are literally breathing in whatever is in your pillow and mattress every night while you sleep, for at least a quarter of your life. If you haven’t got protection, those bugs get deep into the fabric, and there’s no getting it out. Have you ever visited someone else who has a very old mattress and pillow, and had a terrible night’s sleep? Odds are, that’s because you’re struggling to breathe, and that’s this very idea in action.
That’s also the reason that allergists and pulmonologists insist on good quality mattress and pillow protection. Hypoallergenic mattress and pillow protectors from TRU Lite Bedding are ideal. The materials they’re made of are hypoallergenic and keep your pillows and mattress from becoming infested with these tiny invaders. If you’ve already got a problem with dust mites, the protectors provide a barrier between the sleeper and the mattress. These mattress and pillow protectors are also proven to be 100% waterproof, which protects your family not only from dust mites, but also mold that can grow in damp spaces. They additionally protect from other allergens and irritants like animal dander.
It’s really a no-brainer. Even if you don’t have allergies, there’s definitely someone in your life who does. And if you ever have company over, you don’t want to be that person whose mattresses makes your guests sick. If you don’t, TRU Lite mattress and pillow protectors make it so easy and cost-effective to keep your bedroom fresh and clean. All you have to do is slip the protection on, just as easy as you put on your regular bedsheets! Your mattress and pillows will last longer without all that gunk getting in and ruining everything. You won’t have to deal with dingy beds, yellow stains, or funky weird odors. There’s really no excuse not to go ahead and take care of protecting your loved ones now, well before you have to hear that terrifying cry in the middle of the night.
