If you find yourself suffering from skin rashes or even asthma when you go to bed at night, anti-dust mite mattresses are your solution!
If you have dust mites in your bed, you can have an allergic reaction to their fecal matter, skin cells and dead bodies. The good news is that there are measures you can take to reduce the likelihood of an allergic reaction.
One of these methods is replacing your mattress entirely with one that has anti-dust mite properties built right into it, or adding an anti-dust mite mattress cover.
Do You Know What You’re Sleeping on?
Dust mites are everywhere—and if you have pets, they're in your bed as well.
Dust mites live in warm, damp places where it's easy for them to find food (namely, dead skin cells). People shed about 1.5 million flakes of skin per week. Add pet dander and they have a perfect environment to grow and spread.
Anti-dust mite mattresses are designed to help prevent these issues. They keep unwanted allergens out of your mattress and allow for a healthier sleep environment overall. They keep allergens at bay while still allowing air flow between the cover and the mattress below it.
Signs and Symptoms of Dust Mite Allergies
If you have dust mite allergies, you may be suffering from symptoms such as a runny nose, sneezing, and itchy eyes. These symptoms can be worse at night—and they’re most likely to occur during the winter months.
Symptoms tend to intensify over time if you don't take action against them. Reduce exposure to allergens with:
- an anti-dust mite mattress,
- a mattress protector,
- an antimicrobial topper and/or
- mattress pillow protectors.
Preventing Dust Mites in Your Bed
There are a few steps that you can take to prevent dust mites in your bed.
#1: Wash sheets and pillowcases every week.
Dust mites are tiny, so you can't see them. Washing bedding frequently will help prevent dust mite build-up and minimize the risk of an allergic reaction.
Change out bedding often so that no one sleeps in one place too long without washing off all those dead skin cells and oils left behind.
#2: Use a vacuum with a HEPA filter.
If you want to minimize dust mites in your home's air, use a vacuum with a HEPA filter. This is especially beneficial if you have pets or children who live with you. They could bring in dust from outside on their clothes or shoes.
#3: Use an air purifier to clean your room's air.
It will suck up dust particles floating through the room. This reduces risk of infection and exposure for anyone sensitive to dust mites.

Choosing the right protection against bed bugs
It’s important to note that the type of mattress and mattress cover you choose will determine whether or not it provides protection against bed bugs.
For example, if your mattress is a foam-based mattress with no protective covering on top, it’s likely that any bed bug infestation will spread through the cracks in your mattress and onto whatever surface you put it on.
This means that, if you have an infestation in one room, it could easily spread throughout your home via this route. So it is better to protect yourself beforehand.
