Memory Foam’s Resistance to Allergens, Dust Mites, and More
Our beds are our happy place. Somewhere we feel warm, safe, comfortable, and protected. Even leaving the bed can be a challenge in the mornings. The flip side to this is that we are not aware of or completely ignore the gross things living in our beds with us. Our beds can be germs’ happy places, too. Bedding and mattresses collect skin cells, bodily fluids, dust mites, bacteria, allergens, and even mold throughout their lifetimes. As much as we love our beds, they can contribute to us being sick with allergies and viruses, too. One key way to defend against these unsightly friends making our beds their home is to use memory foam bedding products. Memory foam often repels and resists against these germs and allergens due to its construction and materials.
Ways Memory Foam is Healthier
Because memory foam mattresses and pillows are made from a solid block of foam, there is less space for mites, allergens, bacteria, and mold to live. With less space to burrow down into mattresses and pillows, mites and germs stay largely on the surface of bedding materials, making them much easier to clean. In fact, most memory foam is naturally hypoallergenic, meaning that it has been shown in various studies to cause less of and fewer allergic reactions in individuals using memory foam products as compared to bedding competitor products. Memory foam is strong and actively resists germs, bacteria, mold, and allergens that build up in our beds. Because germs, allergens, mold, and bacteria can make us sick, memory foam is a good solution for improving the cleanliness and freshness of your bedroom. Sleep your way to better health by choosing memory foam pillows, toppers, and mattresses!
