Protect-A-Bed Review & Giveaway

I have spoken on my blog before that my family all suffers from allergies. Both of my daughters also suffer from asthma. When my youngest was diagnosed with asthma 3 years ago, our doctor recommended buying a mattress encasement and pillow covers for her. Money was tight, so I bought the cheapest I could find at the time. Last month Protect-A-Bed contacted me asking if I'd be willing to try out their brand, I immediately said yes!

There are millions of allergy sufferers all over the world, all of whom would benefit greatly from Protect-A-Bed® allergy relief products. Their state-of-the-art mattress and pillow protectors provide an impermeable barrier between you and the dust mites and allergens within your bedding. Protect-A-Bed allergy relief products ensure that nothing comes between you and an allergy-free, rejuvenating sleep.




It has been estimated that two million dust mites can thrive in an unprotected mattress. Combine that with other allergy triggers such as pet dander and pollen, and your mattress can become a haven for allergens. With Protect-A-Bed allergy relief products like their mattress and pillow protectors and encasements, an individual who suffers from allergies can finally get the healthy, allergy-free sleep they deserve.

Prevention Magazine has recently named bedding encasements as one of the ways to allergy-proof your home. The magazine also encourages providing a barrier between you and any allergens that may be housed inside your bed. Most people spend most of their time at home in their bedroom, so making the bed an allergy-free zone can greatly cut down on allergies.

Protect-A-Bed’s protectors are fitted-sheet style covers that place an impenetrable barrier between you and allergens, while remaining breathable and comfortable. It is ultra-thin, extra soft, easy-to-use and machine washable.

For chronic allergy sufferers, Protect-A-Bed offers full mattress encasements for mattresses and box springs. They have been a solution for many allergy sufferers to get an uninterrupted good night sleep because the product fully encases the mattress

The timing couldn't have been more perfect, my mattress encasement and pillow cover for Cami arrived right when she got home from the hospital. I actually cut off the old one, it was so thin that it was starting to get holes in it. When I put on the Protect-A-Bed Premium protector, I immediately saw a huge difference in quality. It was a nicer fabric, thicker and it is even waterproof. My daughter tested that the first night by eating in bed while I was at dance with her big sister, lol.

It was also easy to put on and fit perfect. I had no problems getting a sheet back on the bed or anything. This is well worth the $59.99 price tag. I believe I paid around $40 for my cheaper version. Considering I noticed the difference right away with this one, the extra $20 is well worth the investment. My daughter has been using this now for about 3 weeks. I noticed within the first week, she wasn't waking up with itchy eyes any more. She usually gets her allergy symptoms the worst at night and then in the morning. Now she is only asking for her allergy meds in the evening.

Protect-A-Bed sells a full line of state-of-the-art mattress protectors, full mattress encasements, pillow protectors and crib mattress protectors designed to promote health and hygiene while allowing for allergy-free sleep. Protect your whole family from allergens, dust mites and bed bugs with our innovative, waterproof and stainproof products - especially helpful for incontinence sufferers. Protect-A-Bed® bedding products are also easily transportable for every overnight stay.

I'd choose the Premium Mattress Protector in twin for my son's bed. We all have bad allergies, but his bed is the only one with no mattress pad or anything on it yet. It's a hand-me-down (it was his daddy's bed back in his single days), so it really needs some sort of cover on it. I'd LOVE to have one as great as this one.

My dust allergies are a problem year-round, but with the furnace running full-time, the allergies are out of control. I definitely would like Protect-a-Bed's "AllerZip Mattress Protector." My old mattress pad slips all over the place; the AllerZip would zip into place and STAY there.

Contain the mattress allergens? Definitely count me in!

Genevieve said...

I have really bad allergies. When I was 15, I ended up in the hospital(because of BAD migraines and respiratory problems) for 7 weeks in and out not knowing what was wrong with me before a doctor suggested getting an allergy test done. I've gotten more allergy/asthma attacks in my sleep than almost anywhere else. My dad also suffers from really bad allergies but he's not as bad as myself. I have a queen size bed. I had never heard about these special sheets or pillow cases before. It sounds amazing! We try to do what we can to reduce my symptoms. I'm really appreciative just to get the chance to put an entry in!

That sounds like a GREAT product.

3carnations said...

Oh my gosh, this is the perfact giveaway! If I won, I would love the allerzip protector. It would be for my son, who suffers allergies. He used to have several fits of coughing per year, that would last about 6 weeks each. The doctor finally decided it was allergies. He now has an air cleaning machine, he takes Zyrtec and Singulair, and I am forever washing his pillow protectors. All those things seem to have helped quite a bit. We have one pretty basic mattress protector, and I am planning to get another, but that one would be so perfect for him.

Thanks for hosting this!!!

icajay said...

I am the allergy sufferer (is that a word) in our house. I was told by the allergist last week I needed to get a mattress protector so this was great timing! The premium mattress protector would be best! If we win can we get it in a queen size? Thanks!! moni(dot)rapier(at)gmail.com

micaela6955/Michele P. said...

definitely the allerzip mattress protector since I have allergies to dust mites and cat dander...with 3 cats and a forced hot air heating system, the odds are definitely against me!

I would get the premium mattress protector. We don't suffer terribly from allergies all the time, but suffering once in a while is terrible enough. It would go on our bed, we could use a new protector about now. Serendipity, and all that.

Hélène said...

I would get the Premium mattress protector. We don't have allergies that I know of, but the protection still would be good.

Brooke said...

I'd get the Allerzip smooth. My middle daughter has pretty severe dust mite allergies and we need one for every bed in the house. We're missing one in her big sister's bed.

Jenn said...

I would choose the AllerZip one for my husband and my bed. He has awful allergies so this would be great!

wigget said...

i would choose the premium mattress protector because my husband has allergies and wakes up stuffy

dani said...

i would be interested in the premium mattress protector. my husband has allergies, but they aren't extreme.

Chelsea P. said...

Premium mattress Protector for my husband and I. We both have allergies, but I like that this says it's breathable- ours is not and makes me sweaty!
Thanks for the opportunity!
