The most common anti-mite mattresses are:
Latex mattress: Starting from the assumption that mites prefer natural environments, latex is already a deterrent for its main characteristics. In fact, latex foam is only partially natural and this helps to combat the proliferation of parasites.
Memory foam mattress: This type of sleep products are made with chemical material. We are talking about polyurethane foam, a foamy substance that serves to give the mattress its flexible consistency, which adheres perfectly to the shape of the body.
Silver mattress: The natural well-being that spread the mattresses covered with silver filaments, joins its ability to fight dust mites in an equally natural way. These silver wires are ideal to counteract any allergens.
You should be very careful when you want to buy a spring mattress instead. Its particular structure, formed by springs separated from each other, allows both a greater accumulation of dust and its continuous movement, favoring allergic reactions.
Individuals prone to allergies should prefer alternatively the mattress with pocket springs or independent, hypoallergenic and the structure that hardly allows the proliferation of mites.
Practical advice for a mite-free rest:
In case of allergies to dust mites, the first thing to do is to purchase a hypoallergenic mattress, but limiting yourself to this does not solve the problem. It is necessary to deal with periodic maintenance of mattresses and also pillows, with specific anti-mite products with which to treat the covering fabrics.
Another advice is to buy mattresses that have removable covers, preferably anti-mite, so as to have an extra ally in this war against insects due to allergies. It will also be easier to remove them for frequent and accurate washing, done at 55 ° C and beyond, to kill these life forms altogether.
