Summer Slumbers

If we’re not complaining about the weather, we’re complaining about the weather! The last few weeks of sunshine have been glorious, but undoubtedly the ‘heat wave’ has taken its toll on many of us. Hot, sticky nights being the biggest bug bear of all.  As the temperatures crept up lots of people experienced sleepless nights due to the humid conditions.

In one of our previous posts we shared our top tips on keeping cool at night.  From sleeping under cool, cotton sheets, to having a cool shower or bath before bedtime, these simple strategies all help to cool the body in preparation for sleep. Did you know though that a number of beds and mattresses are now so technologically advanced that they can also contribute to keeping you cool at night?

Beds to keep you cool

In Respa’s latest Physiotech Collection they incorporate Sleepfresh Technology for a cool and fresh sleep and Purotex Active Allergen Control to create a fresh and hygienic sleeping environment.  Shown is the Respa Regener8 Divan Bed which not only features Sleepfresh Technology and Purotex Active Allergen Control but it also boasts Double Decker Respatech Springs for long lasting support and a comfort layer of Pressure Relieving Memory Foam.

The Myers Royal Charm Divan Bedpart of the Maxi Spring Collection of Beds and Mattresses, closely conforms to the body for increased comfort and support. This Easy Care, Non-Turn bed has a Layer of Dunlopillo Latex for instant pressure relief and is topped with a Coolmax® Cover to make the mattress cool, comfortable and softer to the touch. This model is Mattress Edge Supported by Heavy Gauge Wire and comes with a Sprung Edge Base for firmer support.

Bed and mattress care in the heat 

To help keep your bed and mattress cooler and fresher for longer, it’s also worth considering investing in good quality mattress and pillow protection. Designed to protect your mattress against soiling and general wear and tear as well as night-time perspiration, mattress protectors are available in a range of fabric types, including 100% cotton for added bed freshness and ensuring a cool sleeping environment.

For allergy sufferers, there are a number of anti-allergy, natural mattress protectors. Breathable and waterproof, these protectors can help keep your new bed allergen-free, or prevent existing allergens from being present in older bedding. Remember too to throw back the bed clothes in the morning and leave the bed to air for 20 minutes to allow body moisture to evaporate.
