DUST MITE AND BED BUG MATTRESS COVERS

Our mattress covers are specifically designed for people who have allergies and want the ultimate waterproof barrier from dust mites and bedbugs. Not all mattress cover providers can provide you with the dust mite certification when asked, but at Protech Allergies, we are committed to transparency. You will find the dust mite certification in the ‘Why Protech Allergies™’ section of this website. Several companies of dust mite covers are of American origin - for example, those made by Protec a Bed. At Protech Allergies, we are proudly Canadian. Canada first, buy Canadian!

Compare and choose the best value for you and your family in addition to supporting a Canadian company.

This is why Protech Allergies stands out from the competition:

RECOMMENDED BY ALLERGISTS

A 100% smooth polyester cover (leaving no space for dust mites to lodge) with a zipper closure and a flap at the end. Features one of the best dust mite protectors on all 6 sides of the mattress to help maintain a healthy environment for your family.

Not recommended by Allergists

Covers with cotton tops are not recommended by allergists as the cotton filaments on the top serve as ideal hosts for dust mites.

Not recommended by Allergists

Covers with only one elastic band will only protect 5 sides of the mattress and not the bottom. When a person sits on the bed, dust mite allergens are released into the air and cause discomfort to the allergic person.

Protech Allergies™ VS the Competition

Choose the most effective dust mite cover on the market. The two pictures below are of our dust mite cover and the specialized competitor’s. They are magnified to the same degree and show that our cover is less permeable and more waterproof barrier.

Our Protech Allergies cover™

Our barrier is very waterproof and mite-proof, but allows air to pass through for optimal comfort. We achieved an extremely high score in blocking Dermatophagoides farinae (dust mites).

The specialized competitor

Although it is extremely tightly woven and made of microfibres, we can see many holes in this specially designed anti-allergy mattress cover. This suggests that this mite barrier is not as effective as the top technology our covers use.

Maintenance and Prevention Tips for Our Dust Mite Mattress Covers

WASHING

Hot water: 133°F / 56°C (we recommend 2 washes per year).

Choose a natural liquid soap (Ivory type), without bleach. Do not use powdered soap, which can leave residues.

Squeeze out excess water.

DRYING

Low temperature, delicate cycle.

OTHER PREVENTIVE MEASURES

Before the first use, it is recommended to wash the cover in hot water (56°C) in order to eliminate packing odours, along with your sheets, blankets, and pillowcases. When washing, make sure that the cover is open and that the waterproof membrane is inside. Unless there is major damage, wash the covers 1 to 4 times a year.

Before installing the cover, vacuum the mattress.

Preferably use synthetic sheets.

Wash sheets, blankets and pillowcases at least once a week in hot water.

Do not dry clean.

Do not iron covers.

Do not dry outdoors (because of pollutant and allergenic particles).

Reduce house dust as much as possible.

Air regularly, even in winter (even if only for a few minutes).

Maintain a relative humidity level below 50%.

Keep the room temperature below 21°C.

Avoid placing rugs, carpets or furniture covered with fabric in the bedroom. Use venetian blinds or light, washable curtains.

Use synthetic pillows and replace them every 2 to 3 years.

Use washable window coverings and dust all surfaces with a damp cloth every week.

Do not keep plants in the bedroom.
