Can Your Bed Make Your Allergies Worse?
While you may take every precaution necessary to protect yourself from allergens throughout the day, you may be surprised to learn that your bed could be the primary source of your nighttime symptoms or morning sniffles. But can your bed make your allergies worse and what factors contribute to this problem? In this article, we will look at some of the ways your bed could be contributing to the problem as well as some quick and easy ways to finally achieve relief.
While the pollen, dust mites or even pet dander are common allergy triggers indoors, the level of exposure you have to these allergens indoors may surprise you. This is especially true when you lay down to go to sleep at night on an unwashed bed or old mattress. The reason for this is that, over time, dust mites will begin to collect in a mattress that hasn’t had a mattress protector on it. That means when you lay down to go to bed, you could potentially be surrounded by a multitude of dust mites or pet dander that you aren’t dealing with otherwise.
As previously mentioned, one of the easiest ways to keep your mattress from retaining these allergens is by utilizing good cleaning practices and using products like a mattress protector to create a barrier. Regularly washing your sheets, particularly if your bed with a pet, will also help ensure that you are removing potential allergens that may be hiding in your sheets or pillowcases. However, as a last-ditch effort, obtaining new pillows or a new mattress may be your only option.
