Household allergies can be caused by several different allergens, but the most common culprits are dust mites.
Dust mites are microscopic, spidery creatures that feed on dead human skin and hair, so they are commonly found where we live. Since we shed flakes of skin as we sleep and dust mites prefer high humidity levels, your mattress makes the perfect home for these creepy critters.
A dust mite allergy occurs when a person reacts to proteins from the body and feces of the dust mites. Common allergic reactions to dust mite feces include sneezing, itching, watery eyes and wheezing. The best way to reduce these allergies is to limit your exposure to dust mites with a hypoallergenic mattress.
Most mattresses, such as those consisting of coils and springs, provide the perfect environment to store dead human skin and humidity, so they become dust mite breeding grounds. (Gross stuff!) While you can never eliminate every last allergen in your home, you can work to decrease them to a manageable level so your symptoms become infrequent and less severe.
Your best option is to get a brand new mattress, since once dust mites move in, they're virtually impossible to get rid of.
Made from rubber, latex is naturally dust-mite resistant, so you'll get some relief from your allergy symptoms without resorting to using any harsh chemicals to inhibit these unwelcome guests' growth.
How PangeaBed Can Help
If you're searching for a new mattress to help alleviate your allergies, the copper-infused PangeaBed is the perfect choice. Not only is it a healthier mattress, it also possesses hypoallergenic properties, and its top layer is made from 100% pure Talalay latex, which is naturally dust-mite resistant.
Talalay latex also undergoes an environmentally friendly, five-stage freshwater washing process—the only one of its kind within the industry.
During this multi-stage cleaning process, water jets wash away residual soaps, curing agents and proteins. Between each set of jets, the products are squeezed to less than 4% of their total thickness, to remove the maximum amount of residual materials from deep within. This vital step improves its hypoallergenic properties by removing residual soaps, curing agents and proteins—resulting in zero complaints of allergies throughout the past 30 years for Talalay latex.
A benefit of using latex rather than memory foam, which are both dust-mite resistant, is its breathability. Talalay latex is four times more breathable than memory foam, so you experience its incredible, dust mite-resistant properties, without the heat retention of memory foam. Plus, it's extremely comfortable.
Yet PangeaBed boasts even more health benefits that set it apart from all the rest. In addition to being hypoallergenic and dust mite-resistant, our mattress is also naturally anti-bacterial, anti-microbial, and anti-fungal, thanks to the copper infused within the Talalay latex.
So, not only do you breathe easier while you sleep, you experience a cleaner and healthier mattress overall, for you and your family.
