Having a good night sleep has a massive impact on our everyday lives as well as our general health and well being, therefore having a good quality mattress is key.
Are you sneezing more when you go to bed?
This could be caused by allergies and dust mites. The older your mattress is the higher amounts of dust mites are found, your mattress provides the ideal living conditions for dust mites, this is due to our dead skin cells and also our body fluids. Studies have shown we can shed up to a 1lb of skin a year whilst we are asleep and loose up to 10 ounces of fluid a night. It is faeces from these mites that can cause us to suffer from allergies. If you are an asthma/allergy sufferer we recommend our Reflections Mattress or Memory Foam 8000. These are hypoallergenic and prohibit the development of dust mites.
