It might be time to talk about allergies and your mattress.

We get it; allergies are no walk in the park. Those pesky allergens can turn a cozy night's sleep into a full-on nightmare, whether it's the changing seasons, pet dander, or dust mites. But don't despair – your trusty mattress can be your ally in the battle against allergens. In this edition of our Symptom Series, we're tackling allergies and what to consider when buying a mattress for those who suffer from them.

1. Material Matters

The material of your mattress can make a world of difference when it comes to allergies. Opt for hypoallergenic materials that resist dust mites and other allergens. Memory foam and latex mattresses are excellent choices because they're naturally resistant to dust mites and mold. We’re happy to point you in the right direction when you visit the Mattrezzz Guys store.

2. Encasements and Covers

Your mattress is like a big sponge, which can soak up allergens over time. Investing in an allergen-resistant mattress encasement or cover is a smart move. These protective layers are a barrier, preventing allergens from seeping into your mattress. They're also easy to wash and maintain, which is a win-win for allergy sufferers. Fortunately for you, we carry several of these at the store!

3. Cleanliness is Key

Regular cleaning can make a world of difference for allergy sufferers. Choose a mattress with a removable, washable cover. This makes it a breeze to keep your sleep surface clean and allergen-free. You'll also want to wash your bedding regularly, including pillows, sheets, and blankets, to keep those allergens at bay.

4. Allergy-Friendly Pillows and Bedding

While we're talking about your sleep setup, don't forget about your pillows and bedding. Opt for hypoallergenic pillows and sheets, preferably made from natural materials like organic cotton. This will help create an allergy-friendly sleep environment from head to toe. A Mattrezzz Guys crowd favorite is the Zoned Dough Lavender scented pillow and microfiber sheets!

5. Consider Adjustable Beds

An adjustable bed might be a game-changer if your allergies affect your breathing and comfort. Elevating your upper body can help alleviate symptoms like snoring and congestion, making for more restful nights. Yet again, you’re in luck! We have several variations of adjustable bed bases for you to choose from.

In conclusion, your mattress can be your sanctuary or your worst enemy when it comes to allergies. By considering these factors and investing in an allergy-friendly mattress and bedding, you're taking a proactive step toward a sneeze-free, restful night's sleep. Say goodbye to restless nights and hello to allergy-friendly slumber. Sweet dreams!
