Do you or your child often wake up to a sneezing fit or a funky smell in the wee hours? Allergy symptoms and foul odors in the bedroom are bad for your sleep and health. What you need—and deserve—is a sleeping haven free of allergens and stink. A fresh, hygienic, comfortable, and Sanitized®-certified hypoallergenic mattress can help you achieve that. Here is a guide to help you make the right decision when choosing a new mattress for better sleep.
Dust mites, bacteria, and fungi are the worst offenders of a good night’s sleep. These creatures may be invisible to the naked eye, but they have a huge impact on your sleep quality and health.
Dust mites – Did you know that tens of thousands of dust mites live in just one gram of dust? Dust mites thrive on a mattress, pillow, and bedding that absorb 1.5 liters of sweat and 1.5 grams of dandruff per night, providing the moisture they need to survive. In the bedroom, dust mites are the worst allergy triggers. Their waste products cause itchy skin, sneezing, breathing difficulty, asthma, and other allergic reactions.
Bacteria – Bacteria from sweat, saliva, pet dander, and humid environments produce foul odor in the bedroom and cause colds and other irritations that make sleeping uncomfortable.
Fungi – Mold and mildew build-up in a mattress produce foul odor and can trigger allergies, so it’s bad for someone with a respiratory disease or a weak immune system.
An unsanitized mattress is the perfect breeding ground for dust mites, bacteria, and fungi. Exposure to it leads to sleep-related problems for people who are allergic to these organisms.
Insomnia and sleeping difficulty – Allergy symptoms such as sneezing, runny nose, and breathing difficulty can keep you awake at night, making you feel sleepy and tired throughout the day. Results of a French study on the impact of allergic rhinitis on sleep quality showed that insomnia happened more often in people with allergies (36%) than those without (16%). The study also found that 42% of people with allergies tend to have trouble falling asleep, while this problem occurs only in 18% of those without.
Snoring and sleep apnea – Does your kid snore often? Research has linked allergic rhinitis with snoring and sleep apnea (the breathing pauses during sleep) among children, which can lead to a lower IQ and poor performance in school.
Bad dreams – A bedroom that smells like a rotten egg is what bad dreams are made of. In a German study, the participants who slept with a smell of rotten eggs reported more negative dreams than those who slept with a scent of roses.
If you or anyone in the household experience these sleep disorders, consider changing your unsanitized mattress to a new one with a Sanitized® certification.
A Sanitized® quality seal on a Uratex mattress guarantees these three things:
Antibacterial, antifungal, and anti-odor mattress, and anti-dustmites- The product is treated with Sanitized®, a unique hygiene technology that protects against common allergens like dust mites, bacteria, molds, and mildew. A long-term study conducted in a hotel found no trace of allergens in a mattress treated with Sanitized® even after 6 years of use.
Allergy-free and odor-free sleep – Because they’re always protected against microbes, mattresses certified by Sanitized® stay fresh, clean, and comfortable for a relaxing and refreshing sleep, making them ideal for people with allergies.
Compliance with the strictest quality standards – Every Sanitized®-certified mattress passed all stringent tests to ensure that it complies with international guidelines. The active ingredients used in creating the product are not just effective but also legal, safe to use, and environment-friendly.
In a National Sleep Foundation survey, 87% of respondents said they chose bedroom products that would help them sleep better. Do you think the same way when choosing a mattress?
For those who suffer from allergies, not just any hypoallergenic mattress will do. When shopping for bedroom essentials, look for mattresses with a Sanitized® quality seal.
Just about any mattress brand can boast of having hypoallergenic products, but only Uratex premium mattresses carry the seal of approval from Sanitized®.
