What is a Mattress Protector?

A mattress protector is a type of removable bedding that guards your mattress from spills and irritants such as dead skin, dust mites and bed bugs. A mattress cover, can be elastic, fitted or zippered. An elastic or fitted model acts as a layer that is tucked over each corner of the bed while a zippered protector encases the entire mattress. A waterproof protector reduces potential mold buildup on your mattress, helping prevent allergy outbreaks or other health risks.
