​Why the Hypoallergenic Mattress is The #1 Choice for Your Health

Mar 20th 2020

Spring is a wonderful time. With warmer temperatures and flowers in bloom, everything feels more joyful as we make the transition into summer. However, for some, spring is a time full of seasonal allergies and discomfort.

It seems like spring is when we think about our allergies the most. Now, in the midst of a pandemic, we’re becoming increasingly aware of making sure all counters and surfaces are kept clean. What we might be forgetting is the surface we come into contact with the most: Our mattress.

Like pollen that circulates in outdoor air, there are pollutants, like dust and dander, that love settling into your home and then move into your bed. Having seasonal allergies and then going to sleep on a mattress that also harbors allergens is nothing short of frustrating. No matter how intense your allergies are, if you’re wondering how to stay healthy and have a great night’s sleep, look no further than Afloat.

Our mission is to make sure you are well-rested, and we know that allergies interrupt the peaceful sleep we all dream of each night. That’s why we created hypoallergenic mattresses so you can get the best sleep each night.

Some of us might not want to admit this, but most beds have critters. Dust mites and the occasional bed bugs are drawn to the cotton, foam, and fiber inside a regular mattress. Mattresses, even while sealed, still allow for dust and particles to penetrate onto the surface, triggering more allergies. Regular mattresses are designed to strengthen these conditions where allergens thrive. If you’ve ever realized that a regular mattress feels heavier years after buying it, it’s because the mattress takes on enough cells and particles to give it more weight.

Even with a regular mattress, just washing your sheets and your mattress pad is the equivalent of cleaning a dining table placemat but not the table. Basically, it’s not getting clean.

Unlike standard memory foam mattresses, Afloat’s vinyl liner and mattress is impermeable to critters who move in and cause allergies. Because Afloat’s fabric stretch-knit cover is machine-washable, you can now keep your waterbed as clean as it was the day you bought it. Not only does our waterbed reduce allergic symptoms, but it is also beneficial for fighting bacterial growth.

Additionally, Afloat is the only mattress that allows deep cleaning:

  • Outer surfaces. All mattresses – including Afloat - use sheets and mattress pads that can be removed and machine washed.
  • Removable mattress surface. Only Afloat has a mattress surface that is easily removed and is machine washable.
  • Easy to clean inner mattress. There is no way to clean the foam or springs in an ordinary mattress. Germs, dust mites and bed bugs can live inside any ordinary mattress. Afloat uses non-permeable vinyl inner surfaces that can be cleaned and disinfected just like a countertop.

We can’t think of a better time to embrace the hypoallergenic mattress. With Afloat’s hygienic waterbeds, you can ease your mind and body with a mattress you can feel good about!
