Mattress Protectors place a soft, comfortable, protective barrier between you and the build-up of harmful particles inside your mattress. HealthGuard's exclusive NO-MITE® waterproof, breathable barrier maintains a cleaner, fresher, healthier bed and is doctor recommended for allergen reduction, asthma, allergies and eczema. HealthGuard™ Protectors eliminates mold, mildew, fungus, bacteria, dust mites and dust mite allergens – both on the sleeping surface and inside your mattress and pillow. Effective on both new and old mattresses, HealthGuard™ Mattress Protectors slide on and off like any fitted sheet and can be machine washed in hot water and tumbled dry. A stretch-net-skirt provides added convenience. For total protection and comfort, use with a HealthGuard™ Pillow Protector.
