Waterproof mattress protectors keep the mattress clean by securing it from absorbing body excretions (such as sweat) or other liquids resulting from spills. These can take the form of flat rubberized flannel pads (commonly used under a bed sheet for infants) or special breathable fitted covers. The plastic pads are hot to sleep on and change the feel of the mattress. A urethane laminate on cotton that has good wicking properties is an alternative to a rubberized flannel pad. A protector with a thin laminate that is not pulled too tightly across the bed will not change the feel of the bed. Also;the laminate is still breathable which means that it will not trap body heat. Because most mattress warranties are voided if the mattress inherits a stain;most sleepers use mattress pads to prevent from voiding a warranty on their mattress. Protecting the health of the sleeper The use of a mattress protector is often recommended to individuals who are known to be susceptible to certain kinds of allergies;especially dust mites. Dust mites produce waste products that irritate the lining of the airways and lungs and particularly with children can bring on allergic reactions;asthma and can irritate skin conditions such as eczema. A full zippered encasement allergen filtration mattress protector can provide an extra layer of protection between the user and their mattress;filtering allergens that are known to trigger allergy and asthma symptoms. For protection against bed bugs;the mattress and box spring must both be fully enclosed with no possible openings. This prevents new bed bugs from getting into the mattress and box spring;and traps any bed bugs that are already inside. Mattress protectors must be left on for at least a full year to make sure that the trapped bed bugs and their eggs die. If the cover is taken off early;the bed bug infestation may relapse. Waterproof mattress protectors also reduce allergy symptoms by reducing the ability of mold to grow in a mattress. Mattress protectors which can be easily disinfected are commonly used in children's nurseries and health care facilities.
