In early 2018, CNBC showcased an interview of a CEO of a renowned home furnishing brand, who went on to explain that meeting customer expectations has become extremely important for business success. This is precisely the reason why intelligent designers, like Guzel Dezayns, take special care in making their bedding collections allergen free. Designer & luxury bedding collections, mattresses and duvets should be chosen wisely to stay healthy and get a good night’s sleep.
Here are some ways and means to ensure a hypoallergenic sleeping environment.
How Do You Ensure a Hypoallergenic Sleeping Environment?
- Dust Mite Covers: If you have spent on expensive mattresses, sheets and quilts, you must also invest in dust mite covers for your mattress, comforters, duvets and pillows. For an effective barrier against allergens, the covers should have pore sizes of 6 microns or smaller. If you are allergic to synthetic material, you can choose dust mite covers made of pure cotton fibre.
- The Right Blanket or Comforter: Picking the right blanket is absolutely necessary for ensuring freedom from allergies. There are certain fibres that breed moulds and dust mites. And what is worse still is that these fibres cannot be cleaned frequently to remove dust and mold. You need duvets with hypoallergenic fills that are excellent alternatives and also suitable for frequent machine washing. If you pick allergen free embroidered bedding sets, the duvet or blanket included in it will have an allergen resistant fill.
- Hypoallergenic Pillows and Pillow Covers: If you are waking up to a runny nose or a sore throat each day, your pillows or pillow covers are to blame. You need to choose a hypoallergenic fill for your pillows. For instance, if you pick a cotton fill pillow, make sure you can wash it frequently. You should also choose allergen free pillow covers. Using dust mite covers can also help. If you prefer silk, wool or latex fill for your pillows, these would be naturally dust resistant. However, you need to keep in mind that these cannot be washed. You will need to dry clean them periodically to ensure a healthy sleeping environment.
- Sheets Should be Chosen Carefully Too: Although bedsheets do not have filling, they can prove to be fertile breeding grounds for bacteria and dust mites. You need to choose fabrics that are either resistant to dirt and dust, or can be washed frequently. Ideally, cotton, bamboo and organic cotton are great choices for excellent feel and easy laundering. Silk sheets are excellent and hypoallergenic too. However, it requires dry cleaning.
In addition, there are some general tips to follow for maintaining a clean and healthy bedroom. Use additional covering for your windows. Always prefer to keep your bedroom clutter free. Use storage bins. Vacuum clean your sleeping space frequently. Keep pets away from beds, sheets and mattresses. It is also a good idea to use an air purifier in your bedroom to keep the air you breathe clean. Using a dehumidifier is also a good idea for controlling humidity. Germs and bacteria breed easily in hot and humid conditions.
