Our allergy mattress covers provide protection
against dust mite allergen, mold, pet dander, bed bugs, and other allergens that can pollute your indoor air and cause allergy and asthma
attacks. A simple solution to eliminating dust mites and improving your health, Allergy Armor mattress covers are exclusive to
AchooAllergy.com. The Allergy Armor Ultra line was featured on
"The Doctors" as an effective way to reduce allergies and improve air quality. To keep you
feeling better and breathing easier, select from these unique Allergy Armor styles:
Ultra, Advanced, Cotton, Classic, Bed Bug, Organic, and Vinyl (box spring covers).
from unique fabric blends, allergy relief mattress covers are
specifically constructed to block out dust mites and other allergens.
Though made of fabric (typically cotton, organic cotton or polyester) a mattress cover differs from a standard sheet in two
major ways: First, a mattress cover is a zippered bedding cover that fully envelops your mattress. Secondly, mattress covers
are woven in a way that actually creates a physical barrier between your mattress and allergens. Though they are virtually
unnoticeable and fit neatly beneath your normal sheets, the relief that they provide from allergies can be noticed after just
one night's sleep.
Why Do You Need a Mattress Cover?
If you wake up in the morning with a stuffy nose, itchy
eyes, sore throat, swollen sinuses, or other allergy
symptoms, you are probably allergic to dust mites.
Almost three-quarters of ALL allergy sufferers are ALSO allergic to dust mites.
Dust mites are microscopic creatures which thrive in
bedding. Unfortunately, their feces, waste materials and body fragments
can cause morning congestion and restless nights, and over the course of ten years, your mattress can literally
double in weight from all of these allergens and dead skin cells. That's nothing sneeze at!
How Does an Allergy Relief Mattress Cover Work?
Mattress covers create a physical barrier between dust mites and
their primary food source - your dead skin cells. By separating dust mites from their food source you kill the dust
mites in the mattress and prevent new mites from taking up residence.
Allergy Armor Ultra has an average pore size of 2.8 microns so that even the smallest allergens like cat
and dog dander cannot pass through. This physical barrier not only seals allergens already in the mattress away but keeps
new ones from entering the mattress and causing allergic and asthmatic reactions. Once you've encased your mattress with the cover, you simply
zip it closed then put your sheets on as you normally would. Wash your standard sheets regularly to remove allergens from them, and sleep
better knowing the one place where you spend nearly 1/3 of your life is allergen-free.
What Does "Membrane-Free" Mean?
Allergy bedding that relied on a membrane was one of the first types developed. As the technology has
evolved, membrane bedding has been pushed to the lower end of the price scale and
is often considered more of an "economy" line. Allergy Armor Classic has a urethane membrane
barrier to block allergens. The advantage of this membrane barrier is that it is waterproof, and so we recommend these encasings for small children.
Membrane-free encasings are softer, more comfortable, and more breathable; they rely on tight-weaving
technology to create pore sizes so small that allergens cannot pass through the fabric. Our membrane free encasings include
Allergy Armor Ultra,
Allergy Armor Advanced,
Allergy Armor Cotton, and
Allergy Armor Organic.
How Do You Use a Mattress Cover?
A mattress cover can sometimes be cumbersome to install, particularly for thicker, queen-sized
mattresses. Luckily, once you've installed the cover, you only have to take it off a few times a year. The job is easiest if
two people work together. One person should hold the mattress up, while
the other person pulls on the cover. Then zip it up at the foot of the
bed to seal it for complete protection.
How Do You Care for Allergy Bedding?
Caring for mattress and pillow covers is simple. Just machine
wash on warm or hot, and gently tumble dry. Do not use bleach. We
recommend you wash your allergy relief bedding three or four times per year.
Your standard bedding should be washed in hot water every one to two weeks.
Allergy Armor Organic Bedding works just as good as the Ultra, but I feel good knowing my face is rested on all natural organic cotton. Actually, I would recommend a cover regardless of allergies, just so I know I am not breathing pillow stuffing. More Testimonials
