A hypoallergenic mattress is a mattress that is less likely to cause an allergic reaction. The word hypoallergenic basically means, things that are less likely than others, to cause an allergic reaction. This can refer to animals, or it can refer to products, such as cosmetics and mattresses.
The hypo part means “less than normally”, (not the same as hyper with an er). The other part, allergenic, means, can cause an allergic reaction, like dust, pet dander, or dust mites. So, a hypoallergenic mattress is good for preventing allergic reactions.
The opposite is a non-hypoallergenic mattress, which, logically, would have a greater likelihood of causing an allergic reaction. Naturally, manufacturers of non-hypoallergenic mattresses wouldn’t put labels on their mattresses saying so, as it’s not something they’d really want you to know. But be aware they’re out there. And can cause problems for your health, especially for people with allergies.
What makes a good hypoallergenic mattress?
The materials used to make a hypoallergenic mattress prevent allergens like dust mites, bacteria, mould, and fungus from getting into your mattress, pillows, and bedding. The effectiveness of these materials, however, depends on the quality of the design, the manufacturing process, and the mattress treatment. This includes sealing the mattress to make it resistant to allergens.
A well-designed hypoallergenic mattress will:
• Help prevent allergy flare-ups
• Reduce symptoms of allergies
• Encourage better sleeping patterns
• Provide extra comfort, and
• Increase health and wellbeing
Hypoallergenic mattresses serve their purpose better when they are also waterproof. BedGuard’s range are the best quality hypoallergenic mattresses, as they are also antibacterial, stain resistant and odour resistant, on top of being hypoallergenic and waterproof.
