Reviewed by: Joann-mom of an allergy sufferer from Port St Lucie, FL

I am a repeat customer for these mattress and box spring covers. I got rid of my sons old King size mattress that I already had the covers on and bought him a queen size bed, so I just needed to get the queen size covers. He suffers from dust mite allergies but with these covers on his mattress and box spring, he rarely gets sinus infections now. I am true believer in these covers and I tell everybody "it's a no brainer even if you don't have allergies, who wants to breathe in dust mites when you sleep?" These covers are fantastic. Thanks again AchooAllergy for supplying me with such a great product!!!!

Allergy Armor Basic - Box Spring Cover Reviews

Allergy Armor Basic Box Spring Covers

For years we have been trying to find a low cost fabric or material that would do what we needed. Vinyl has traditionally been the best fit for box spring covers, but as the years have passed we have noticed two things. First, box spring covers are all made overseas, and with that comes problems with quality control. For anyone who's had a problem in the past, 99% of the time, it's the zipper. Second, vinyl smells like... vinyl. For many people this hasn't been an issue, and simply allowing the product to air out for a day works for most. Still, this is a poor solution for those who deal with allergies or asthma and also have a sensitivity to strong odors, like that of vinyl. We finally believe we have a suitable solution to the problem. Allergy Armor Basic is an inexpensive, tri-laminate fabric that lacks the odor of vinyl but provides effective protection against dust mites, pollen, and dander while also being water resistant. In developing this new product, here are a few things that we tested and how this fabric performed.

What I like about Allergy Armor Basic

  • Dust Mite Barrier - As a dust mite barrier, Allergy Armor Basic effectively blocks all dust mites and the majority of other common particle allergens, including cat dander and pollen. This same material is used in many of the modern filters that you find, including those for masks.
  • Lightweight - Vinyl box spring covers can be particularly heavy, but Allergy Armor Basic is our most lightweight fabric to date. With a Twin size cover weighing right around one pound, these covers are almost 50% lighter than their vinyl predecessor. Less material, less weight but the same protection.
  • Inexpensive - In an ideal world, there would be no need to cover your box spring. However, it can, and does, harbor dust mites, so rather than spend four to five times the amount on another mattress cover, the Allergy Armor Basic box spring covers offer an extremely inexpensive way to get the same protection for far less.
  • Coffee Stained Allergy Armor BasicLow Maintenance - Unlike mattress covers, Basic does NOT need to be washed. In terms of regular maintenance, you only need to vacuum this cover off occasionally (think once per week or twice a month). Vacuuming it with a good HEPA vacuum cleaner will remove any allergen that may have settled on top. As a test, I purposefully spilled coffee (with cream and sugar) on a Basic cover. After allowing it to dry, I washed it in cold water with only detergent. There was a slight color smudge left if you looked hard enough to find it, but it washed clean. Typically you will not ever have to launder this cover, but should you spill something on it like I did, wash in cold water (use an anti-allergen laundry additive or detergent), then allow to air dry. Because this fabric is hydrophobic by nature, very little moisture will actually be on the fabric after you wash it. Generally it will feel a little damp around the seams, but under normal conditions, this cover air dries complete in an hour or less. Once fully dry, reinstall on the box spring and you're all set. Washing in hot water or putting this in a machine dryer will degrade the fabric and should generally be avoided.
  • Water Resistant - Though not waterproof like vinyl, this fabric is hydrophobic which means unless liquid physically sits on it for quite a while, it will generally bead up instead of soaking in. Which means if you do have a spill, soak it up with a paper towel first, and if that doesn't remove it all, then consider washing it.
  • Easy to Use - There is little to this other than pull it completely over the box spring then zipping it closed and putting your bed skirt back over top of it. Two tips: Check your box spring for staples, nails or sharp pieces of plastic before putting your Basic cover on. Though resistant to punctures, it's better to remove these things rather than risk punching a hole in your new box spring cover. Secondly, for queen size covers, get a friend to give you a hand. Standing a queen size box spring can be fairly easy but evenly pulling the cover down over it is made much quicker with some assistance.
  • It Is Not Vinyl (No Chemical Odors & Breathable) - This means you don't have to allow this to air out. There is no vinyl odor to irritate chemically sensitive people or asthmatics. Also unlike vinyl, this fabric is breathable, so air will pass through. It is also white, so gone is the greyish, off-white, or cream color.
  • American Made - Vinyl covers are all made in China, and while this makes for a cheap product, it can also leave the door open for quality control issues. In the past we have noticed problems with the zipper. This issue is gone. The fabric is made right here in the U.S. We cut, sew and package each box spring cover here in Atlanta, GA. And like our other premium covers, we use only YKK zippers. That might not seem like much... until you have a problem with a cheap zipper. So from start to finish, this is a wholly American Made product.
What I did not like about Allergy Armor Basic
  • Longevity - In terms of lifespan, the Allergy Armor Basic box spring covers probably won't last you quite as long as a mattress cover. Typically should give you a minimum of 3-5 years of use though.

In all, there is very little that I can say negatively in terms of Allery Armor Basic vs. Vinyl. Overall, it is a big step up with only positives. Production is done domestically. Quality is superior. Gone are issues with the zipper and odor, and unlike vinyl, these covers are machine washable. As a reliable, inexpensive, effective dust mite barrier for you box spring, Basic is the perfect choice.
