The Grownup Guide to a Healthy Sleep Environment

As children, we were taught that making our bed consisted of pulling up the sheets, straightening the bedspread, and arranging the pillows in such a way that our mother would be pleased.

Surprisingly, making the bed is less about the daily task and more about creating a healthy sleep environment. Here’s what you need: 

Total mattress protection

You may be surprised to learn that sheets are not the first (or second) layer of bedding that should go on your mattress. Whether your mattress is brand new or has passed the test of time, a total encasement mattress protector is the first (and arguably the most important) layer of bedding. 

With 360° moisture protection, the total encasement zips completely around the mattress protecting it (and you) from bed bugs, dust mites, allergens, moisture and stains that inevitably settle into your sleep environment. Best of all, it works with any mattress type and can be washed and dried on hot settings for optimal sanitization.

Five-sided mattress protection

Now that you’ve wrestled your total encasement protector onto your mattress, there is a good chance that you don’t want to do it every time you wash your bedding. That’s why the second step is another layer of mattress protection, the 5-sided, which fits your mattress just like a fitted sheet.

Along with the wellness and protection benefits, you can choose additional 5-Sided features like our FRíO rapid chill cooling protector.  This technology is proven to reduce heat 5x faster than regular polyester. It’s also waterproof, air vapour porous and provides a physical barrier against allergens, dust mites, mold and mildew.

Pillow protection

Most of us don’t like to admit that sometimes we drool or sweat while we sleep, and what doesn’t evaporate throughout the night soaks right into our mattress and pillows, accumulating and creating a breeding ground for dust mites and allergens.

Pillow protectors are key in creating a healthy sleep environment, and can bring additional benefits to the table as well. Consider PureCare’s Celliant Pillow Protector; in addition to the complete protection, it’s designed to create a temporary increase in blood flow with clinically tested Celliant fibres that help promote a more restful sleep.

High quality sheets

PureCare’s ultra soft Luxury Microfibre linens are crafted with slightly heavier fibres and an extra-fine, breathable twill weave for added comfort. Design features like precision-fit corners and enveloping pillowcases help to ensure a great fit throughout the night. Durable and wrinkle resistant, the fitted sheet features unique comfort and construction designed to fit mattresses up to 18″ deep.

For bamboo lovers, Bamboo Premium Sheets are designed with exclusive comfort and construction features to provide an ideal fit, feel, and finish. Sheet sets feature a sateen weave treated with antimicrobial silver chloride to inhibit bacteria, mold and mildew.
