It's safe to say that most of us have a codependent relationship with our beds. We crawl in and out of it every single night and morning. When we're not sleeping in it, we're daydreaming about how we can't wait to get back into our bed. But science says — may we rejoice — that's a good thing. Your desire for sleep comes from your need to cater to total body wellness, but you can't do that without a cozy, reliable mattress and comfortable mattress pad. According to The Better Sleep Council, a good mattress can improve your quality of life. Not only will you see greater sleep quality and fewer back pains, you'll also experience psychological benefits that are worth the price when it comes to your bedding. As much as we'd love to tell you how cooling mattress pads & toppers feel like heaven on earth — words from our satisfied customers — there's something to be said about our mattress pads, the unsung hero in the battle for a comfortable night's rest. The mattress pad is designed to act as a neutralizer between your sheets and mattress. This neutralizer performs many duties such as regulating temperature and breathability, defending durability and making sure your wine-night-gone-wrong doesn't seep through to your mattress. If you're on a quest for a mattress pad or want to know if one is right for you, we're ready to help you every step of the way. But first, let's answer the relevant question: why do I need a mattress pad?
Do I Need a Mattress Pad?
Some will say you don't NEED a mattress pad - just like you don't NEED chocolate, that third glass of wine or your favorite pair of jeans. But those things make your life better, don't they? Think of a mattress pad using that same mentality. Having one on your bed will increase comfort, activate durability and help you save money.
Let's Break Down the Benefits of a Mattress Pad ...
- Maintaining durability. A mattress pad will serve as a defense mechanism. While it can't prevent your mattress from its natural aging, it can help slow down the process so you can hang on to your cozy mattress just a little bit longer. According to Business Insider, "most estimates put the lifetime of the average mattress at around 8 to 10 years." A mattress pad can help maintain those numbers.
- Support and comfort. A mattress pad — if made with the same diligence as a SHEEX mattress pad — can contribute an added level of comfy support that you might not get from just sleeping on your mattress alone. A mattress pad will cater to your body's shape while also giving you extra cushion — if that's something you're into.
- Price. The price of a good mattress pad is a small investment into your total comfort. If you've had your mattress for only a few years, it's not time for a new one just yet. However, if you're looking for that "brand-new" feeling, throwing a comfortable mattress pad on top can serve as a lower cost, short-term solution before you have to invest in a new mattress.
- Reduces allergens. Another article from Business Insider explains that by adding a mattress pad, "you're protecting yourself from the billions of bacteria — sweat, lint, dust mites, animal dander, mucous, soil, sand, cosmetics, food, and insect parts, to name a few — that you'd otherwise be breathing in every night." When you wake up feeling like you've been hit by a bus full of allergens, it might be because you're not "fully protected" from these allergens. Having a mattress pad allows you to strip off that layer and wash it rather than tossing your mattress entirely. In other words, a properly laundered mattress pad will keep things fresher for much, much longer.
