As the place where we spend so much time, mattresses end up going go through a lot of wear and tear. It gets more use that any other piece of furniture, and we abuse it to no end. One thing that especially affects the condition of mattresses is moisture. Mattresses can get wet for several all sorts of reasons; including bedwetting, adult incontinence, pet accidents and spills from beverages. When a mattress gets wet for any of these reasons, it can be very difficult, if not impossible, to clean it up completely. Then you have the unappealing stains and, ugh, bad odors, as well as providing an opportunity ideal conditions for dangerous mold and mildew to begin growing grow.

Protecting your mattress and sheets from fluids and stains, Mattress Safe® products provide protection for adults during periods of home health care and the daily uses of family life. As we grow older our bodies inevitably start to break down and health issues become more prominent. Aging can bring with it the complications of surgical recovery, injury, sickness and incontinence. Adult sleepers may at times need stain and waterproof protection that calls for a urine mattress protector. From illness through home healthcare, our Sofcover® "Superior" and Sofcover® "Ultimate" encasements can give you a layer of security that will not interfere with rest or recovery. 25 million adult Americans experience temporary or chronic urinary incontinence (UI). Health risks include skin rashes, sores, infections and urinary tract infections. The National Association for Continence* estimates that 75-80% of UI sufferers are women, 9-13 million of whom have symptoms ranging from moderate to severe. UI often affects people over 50 years old, and over half of home bound seniors have incontinence issues. Common causes include*:
- Menopausal or pregnancy-related hormone fluctuations
- For men, enlarged prostate gland or prostate surgery
- Weakened and stretched pelvic muscles after childbirth
- Prescription medication side effects
- Build-up of stool in the bowels
- Overweight and obesity, which increases pressure on the bladder and muscles that control the bladder
- Urinary tract infections
- Vascular disease
- Diseases such as diabetes, Alzheimer's disease and multiple sclerosis
Mattress Safe® "Wee" Saver® products give children extra security as they grow. Learning to be confident is a great achievement for your child. Protecting your child's mattress will give them the added security they need for a worry-free sleep after an accident. Should bedwetting occur, Mattress Safe®products are waterproof and provide protection against fluids and stains. The luxurious fabric is soft to the touch, contributing to the comfort of your mattress.
It is estimated that more than 5 million children in the US experience bedwetting. Although the inconvenience affects many young people, it usually disappears naturally over time. This suggests that incontinence, for some people, may be a normal part of growing up. Incontinence at the normal age of toilet training may cause great distress. Most cases probably result from a mix of factors including slower physical development, an overproduction of urine at night, a lack of ability to recognize bladder filling when asleep, and, infrequently, anxiety. Anxiety experienced after the age of 4 due to overwhelming, stressful situations may lead to bedwetting even after the child has been dry for a period of 6 months or more. Most children overcome incontinence naturally - without treatment - as they grow older, typically due to a combination of factors:
- Bladder capacity increases
- Natural body alarms become activated
- An overactive bladder settles down
- Production of related hormones normalizes
- The child learns to better respond to their body's signals
- Stressful events or periods pass
Your mattress is an investment to ensure a good night's sleep and periodically may be used by everyone in your family, including pets. Many pet lovers enjoy sharing their bed with their furry companions. A beloved pet that is elderly, suffering from a UTI, sickness or convalescing from a surgery or injury can experience accidents, causing irreversible damage to the mattress.
A Mattress Safe® waterproof mattress encasement will protect your mattress from the everyday accident. Beyond everyday protection, Mattress Safe® protectors add to the life of your bedding investment by protecting against molds, stains, bacteria, skin cells and specifically dust mite and pet allergens that collect in the mattress. Add a layer of protection and comfort to the most used piece of furniture in your home.
Please Note: Claws on pets can puncture the cover compromising the waterproof effectiveness of the product.
