Pros and Cons Of Each Protector
You Might Choose…
- You want a protector that goes on your mattress like a fitted sheet
- You have a thicker mattress (can fit up to 18-inch mattresses)
- You want a protector with a cotton terry surface
- You want a protector that costs less than $100 (for a Queen)
- You want a protector with a 200+ Wash Durability Rating.
- You want an encasement mattress that can be sealed to protect against bed bugs
- You want a protector that is Certified Asthma and Allergy Friendly™ by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA)
- You want to cover a unique mattress – like a sofa mattress
- You want a super snug fit on your mattress (protector comes in two depth options)
These protectors are so different that your choice will most likely come down to your personal needs and priorities.
If you are looking for a mattress that is waterproof, easy to put on and off, easy to care for and relatively affordable, you will probably enjoy the SafeRest protector.
SafeRest’s protector is a straightforward protector that will go on your mattress like a fitted sheet and will keep the surface safe from liquid damage and allergies.
However, if you need a serious mattress protector you will want to go with the Protect-A-Bed Allerzip.
What do I mean by a “serious” protector? If you have any of the following issues:
- Potential for bed bugs
- Major allergy or asthma issues
- Potential for a lot of liquid damage
Protect-A-Bed Allerzip has the option to completely seal off your mattress from the outside world. It’s listed as a medical device and has been certified and lab tested to keep your mattress truly protected from allergens and asthma.
It comes with a steeper price tag at $12.95 for a Queen – nearly double the cost of the SafeRest protector – but it offers much more.
I personally preferred the overall fit and functionality of the Protect-A-Bed Allerzip protector. While I did not care for the price tag, for the value and quality I think it’s definitely worth the money.
Those looking for something simpler, the SafeRest protect may be a good fit for you.
