Hi jarpoet,

Congratulations on your new mattress ... I'm looking forward to your feedback when you receive it.:)


@biodole,

The previous post I linked includes links to several options for dust mite encasements that would all be suitable for you and have little effect on the mattress and would all be more breathable than the vinyl cover you are currently using.

The smaller the micron size of the encasement the more allergens it will block but anything under about 6 microns will prevent allergens from dist mites and their byproducts. All of the encasements that use a semi breathable membrane have a 0 micron size which wouldn't allow any particles through at all and they would all be effective but they are not as breathable as cotton or cotton blends or other types of microfiber although they would have the added benefit of being waterproof.

Most of the manufacturers that make protectors also make encasements such as Protect-A-Bed and Luna .

I'm not sure why you are asking the same question as your two other posts or what part hasn't been answered ?
