Sleeping Soundly with Allergies: How to Choose a Hypoallergenic Mattress and Bedding

It’s spring, and we all know what that means – green dust! Allergies can be a real nuisance, especially when they interfere with your sleep. If you’re one of the millions of people who suffer from allergies, you know how important it is to create a sleep environment that minimizes allergens and promotes a comfortable, restful night’s sleep. 

At Shovlin Mattress Factory, we understand the challenges of sleeping with allergies and are here to help you choose the right hypoallergenic mattress and bedding.

In this guide, we’ll explore the essential factors to consider when selecting allergy-friendly sleep products and offer tips to help you create a sleep sanctuary that keeps allergens at bay.

The Importance of a Hypoallergenic Mattress

  1. Your mattress can be a breeding ground for allergens such as dust mites, mold, and mildew, which can trigger allergy symptoms and disrupt your sleep. Opting for a hypoallergenic mattress is a crucial step in minimizing allergens in your sleep environment. These mattresses are designed with materials that resist the growth of allergens and provide a cleaner, healthier surface for you to sleep on.

When shopping for a hypoallergenic mattress, consider options made with natural materials like latex, (just like our Hybrid and Nirvana collections), which is naturally resistant to dust mites and mold. 

Allergy-Friendly Bedding

  1. Beyond your mattress, choosing the right bedding can also make a significant difference in reducing allergens and improving your sleep quality. Look for hypoallergenic pillows, sheets, and comforters made from materials that resist allergens and can be easily cleaned.

Some popular allergy-friendly bedding materials include:

  • Organic cotton: Breathable and free from harmful chemicals, organic cotton is a great choice for allergy sufferers. Look for bedding with a high thread count, as it creates a tighter weave that can help prevent allergens from penetrating the fabric.
  • Bamboo: Soft, durable, and naturally hypoallergenic, bamboo bedding is also eco-friendly and moisture-wicking, making it an excellent choice for those with allergies.
  • Silk: Known for its luxurious feel, silk is naturally hypoallergenic and resistant to dust mites. However, it can be more expensive and requires special care when washing.
  • Microfiber: Made from finely woven synthetic fibers, microfiber bedding is budget-friendly, soft, and resistant to allergens. Just make sure to wash it regularly to keep it fresh and clean.

Regular Cleaning and Maintenance

  1. Keeping your sleep environment clean is vital in controlling allergens and ensuring a restful night’s sleep. Regularly wash your bedding in hot water to kill dust mites and remove allergens. Vacuum your mattress and bedroom floor frequently, and use an air purifier with a HEPA filter to help remove airborne allergens.

Protect Your Mattress and Pillows

  1. Invest in allergy-proof covers for your mattress and pillows to create a barrier against allergens. These covers are made from tightly woven fabric that prevents allergens from penetrating the surface, helping to keep your sleep environment cleaner and more comfortable.

Managing allergies while you sleep doesn’t have to be a daunting task. By choosing a hypoallergenic mattress and allergy-friendly bedding, maintaining a clean sleep environment, and using protective covers, you can create a sleep sanctuary that promotes restful, allergy-free nights.
