Bedroom Allergens

With many layers of dark, moisture-absorbing materials, beds can be the host to a large number of bedroom allergens.

In fact, according to the Asthma and Allergy Foundation (AAFA), the bedroom is the most allergen-prone room in the house. Since we spend, on average, a third of our lives in the bedroom, the air quality, and allergens present can have a large impact on our comfort and sleep quality. Let’s take a look at what could be lurking in your bedroom.

Dust Mites
By far the largest source of allergens in the bedroom, dust mites, and enzymes in their droppings are small enough to be inhaled and are common allergy irritants. These microscopic creatures feed on dry skin cells, and are present by the millions in beds and bedding, especially when mattresses and pillows are not protected. To limit their presence in your bed, wash your bedding regularly on hot settings, and utilize dust mite proof mattress and pillow protectors.

Pets
Covered in fur, sometimes drooling and even occasionally incontinent, our loveable friends can be big contributors to allergen build-up at home. Indoor/outdoor pets can bring in dust, dirt, and pollen from outside, while seasonal shedding can ramp-up allergy suffering. In addition to wiping paws and regularly brushing coats, protecting mattresses and pillows is an essential step to curbing allergen build-up. Even if your pet does not sleep in your bed, the absorptive nature of unprotected beds and bedding means this can be an easy destination for pet-borne allergens.

Mold and Mildew
Mold allergies are related to contact with mold spores both through touch and inhalation. Mold and mildew allergies can result in a rash, runny nose, sneezing, and coughing. Symptoms of this allergy are similar to hay fever. Mold typically grows in dark, moist areas where a layer of surface moisture film is present. Waterproof or moisture-wicking bedding and bed protection are recommended to prevent the growth of mold or mildew in your mattress or pillows.

Pollen
If you keep your windows open, have pets who explore the outdoors, or occasionally wear street clothes in bed, seasonal pollen is likely present within your mattress. With many sheets, folds and multiple layers of fabric, beds easily trap and retain allergens like pollen. By washing your bedding regularly, and protecting both your pillow and mattress, you can ensure pollen does not accumulate.

Mattress Materials
Many mattresses are constructed with materials like down and latex foam. While people with severe allergies are not recommended to purchase or sleep on products constructed of these materials, it is possible to mitigate the effects of these allergens with allergen-proof bedding such as mattress encasements, box spring encasements, and pillow protectors designed to stop particles from entering or exiting the bed.

Where do allergens reside?
Allergens can be present in every corner of the bedroom, from dust on cluttered shelves to mold and mildew in carpets and dust mites in bedding. The largest home for allergens is in an unprotected mattress and pillows, where dust mites can thrive in layer after layer of fabric, stuffing and other porous materials, and easily be inhaled while you sleep.

What products help prevent bedroom allergens?

The most effective products at reducing allergens in the home are those that focus on dust mite proof, waterproof and moisture-wicking bed and bedding protection. Products include mattress protection, mattress encasements, box spring encasements and pillow protectors. In order to be effective, bedding protection must inhibit the growth and habitat for dust mites, mold, dust and other allergens. To accomplish this, the fabric must have a barrier that stops all particles, even to a microscopic level, from passing through. Look for products that are asthma and allergen friendly™ certified by the Asthma and Allergen Foundation of America.

We spend a 1/3 of our lives in bed, and ensuring it's an allergen-free environment can have a big impact on the rest of our lives. To shop products that can help curb bedroom allergens, and help you get the best sleep possible, click the links below.

Bed Bugs 101

Whether you're traveling or at home, bed bugs can ruin your night's sleep, force you to throw out a mattress and leave swollen bites all over your body.

What do Bed Bugs Look Like?

Bed bugs are small brownish insects that feed on the blood of humans and animals. They are generally ovular in shape with males growing to the size of an apple seed at full size. Bed bugs do not fly but can move quickly across floors, furniture, ceilings, and walls.

Where do Bed Bugs Hide?

They are often found in bedding, thick carpets, between mattresses and dark corners. They favor tight, dark spaces where they can stay safe during the day. Bed bugs can multiply rapidly. Each generation can reach full maturity in as soon as a year, and produce as many as three generations annually. Female bed bugs can lay hundreds of eggs throughout her life.

Bed Bug Symptoms

If bed bugs remain unnoticed, the first sign of infestation is usually a bite. Bed bugs typically feed at night, when they crawl out from cover and feed on an exposed skin. Bed bug bites typically pierce the skin and as bed bugs draw blood through their beak. Then, feed for an average of 10 minutes before crawling back to cover. The bed bug bite is not typically noticeable at first (it usually occurs during sleep) but it can become inflamed, red and itchy. It is common to mistake bed bug bites for mosquito bites at the outset of infestation, so if in doubt, always check your bedding and mattress.

Bed Bug Symptoms Include:

The unexplained appearance of mosquito-like bed bug bites
Blood stains on sheets and pillow cases
Bed bugs on mattress
Bed bug excrement (dark, rusty spots) on sheets and mattresses, bedding, and walls
Bed bug eggs and discarded skin are found in areas bed bugs typically hide
An offensive, musty odor from the bugs' scent glands is present in bed
Dead bed bug carcasses found in sheets, and in the bed

What happens during a bed bug infestation?

During an infestation, bed bugs will amass in dark areas near to their food source. They are often found in unprotected mattresses and bedding, pet beds and other areas where human and animal blood is near at hand. If left unchecked, bed bug populations will increase many folds, spreading throughout multiple rooms, furnishings, and apartments.

What causes bed bugs?

Bed bugs can be found in homes and hotels throughout the world. Their quick movement and desire to seek dark corners mean they often enter the home through luggage, backpacks, clothes, used furniture, or bedding. As they live in groups and do not construct nests, they can migrate easily. Their ability to hide and multiply quickly often result in rapid infestations, especially in homes with unprotected mattresses and pillows.

Where do be bugs live in bedrooms and beds?

Bed bugs are typically found in unprotected mattresses and box springs. Their thinnest (about the width of a credit card) gives them the ability to easily squeeze into tight areas. They are commonly found between mattresses, box springs and headboards, in unprotected mattresses and box springs, bedding and in the corners of bed frames during the day. At night you’ll often find bed bugs on mattress, pillows, and bedding.

How can bed bugs be prevented?

Bed bug infestations can be prevented by exercising caution when traveling, whether checking into a hotel or staying at a friend’s home, inspect rooms prior to unpacking, and keep your luggage zipped. At home, incorporate routine checks into your cleaning schedule. When changing sheets, check under beds and between both mattresses and box springs, and the headboard, and consider purchasing bed bug detecting traps. These will quickly provide evidence of a bed bug infestation. If you notice any signs of infestation, be sure to act quickly and secure a bed bug treatment including bed bug heat treatment, a bed bug heater, exterminator and more.

The most effective way of preventing bed bugs in bed is to not give them any place to set up shop. Utilizing a proven mattress covers for bed bugs
 and bed bug proof encasements will stop bed bugs from entering and exiting a mattress and box spring, and can also help prevent stains and other allergens.
