At the Bed Bath Store, we understand that every mattress is different and requires a uniquely fitted mattress topper and cover in order to give you the best comfort possible.

The store carries all sizes for bedding including twin, full, queen, king and California king. The Bed Bath Store also has several different types of fills such as polyester, down, down alternative, cotton and even wool materials.

Why Protect and Cover Your Mattress?

Many people underestimate the importance of mattress pads and covers because they consider them a luxury item. Mattress pads and covers are not luxury items, but rather essential items for maintaining cleanliness and quality of your mattress. Additionally, mattress pads and covers secure the sheets to the bed for a snug fit and extra softness, which adds to both your comfort and convenience. Uncovered mattresses can become a breeding ground for dust mites, which can cause allergies, asthma, eczema and rhinitis. This is especially alarming because dust mites cannot be detected by the naked eye and they live on the millions of skin cells and body fluids that humans shed every night. You could be at risk for disease and infection without even knowing it.

Mattress covers also protect your mattress and box springs from bed bugs. Bed bugs are small parasites that feed on human blood and are often invisible to the naked eye. People can go weeks without noticing a small colony of bed bugs forming on their beds. It is only once the colony grows into a large infestation that people begin to notice a problem. It's important to note that since bed bugs are hitch-hikers, they can be easily transferred from infested areas to non-infested areas quite often. Luckily, there are several easy ways you can fight the infestation if it happens to you.

The Bed Bath Store carries a variety of bed bug bedding protectors, including the Protect-A-Bed Bed Bug Proof Box Spring Cover Encasement  and the Protect-A-Bed Economy Bug Lock. You can also protect your mattress and yourself by covering it with the Platinum Mattress Protector, which zips closed to ensure that the bed bugs don't have a chance of getting in. All three of the products mentioned work to protect your mattress from unwanted bed bugs and dust mites to create a cleaner and healthier environment. The mattress covers, mattress encasements and pillow covers all provide maximum protection from bed bugs because they fully encase the entire area (down to the box springs) and are zipper-sealed so nothing gets in or out.

When selecting a mattress pad, one of the main features you'll want to look for is thread count. The higher the thread count a mattress pad has, the softer and more durable it is. Thickness is another feature you'll want to consider when buying a mattress pad. Thicker pads will provide the most comfort and the best protection. You'll also want to consider the size of your mattress when choosing a mattress pad. Pillow Top and Extra Deep mattresses have become increasingly popular recently, so knowing the depth of your mattress is important for choosing the one that best fits your needs. Finally, it's important to note that all mattress pads are machine washable and require an average amount of maintenance in order to maintain cleanliness. A good rule of thumb is to wash your mattress pad less frequently than your sheets, but more frequently than your comforter.
