Purotex Mattress Technology

PurotexPurotex technology is found in many of our products and we use it to ensure you can have an allergy-free night's sleep. Many people find dust mites in their household can quickly trigger allergic reactions. This is where Purotex comes in to save the day. 

What is Purotex?

Purotex is a textile treatment that helps to fight against allergens. It is designed to stop dust mites in their tracks, as well as prevent other harmful bacteria from multiplying. These allergens are then unable to cause damage to the sufferer, potentially reducing the symptoms of allergic reactions.

Dust mites thrive in bedrooms and particularly on beds. With both moisture and heat radiating from the body when we are asleep, dust mites have the perfect envrionment to come out and play. Having an anti-allergy treatment like Purotex can keep the little blighters at bay and leave you having a peaceful night's sleep.

How does it work?

Purotex combines five completely natural bacterias that have been chosen for of their ability to keep house dust mite allergens at bay, along with various other types of allergen. The Purotex is then put into tiny capsules that are inserted into the fabric. The movement of your body on the fabric causes the capsules to be disturbed and the Purotex treatment can then get to work. 

The bacteria within the treatment soak up any moisture and actively prevent allergens in their tracks. Bad bacteria and mould struggle to grow without warm, damp conditions - Purotex helps prevention by removing the dampness.

The Benefits of a Purotex Mattress

One of the key benefits of having your mattress woven with Purotex is the fact that is suitable for allergy sufferers. Nobody wants to go to bed with the snuffles so if your room has been given the anti-allergy treatment, you're more likely to have a good night's sleep. 

With Purotex in your mattress, dust mites can are eliminated so you may find that the bed remains cleaner, is more hygienic and offers peace of mind to be able to relax when you go to bed. The bacteria in the product also consumes the droppings of the mites - which is actuallty the root cause of an allergic reaction to dust mites. By removing the allergens, you could instantly find yourself sleeping better.
