GO BEYOND HYPOALLERGENIC PILLOWS
WITH ALLERGY-FREE PILLOWS
Given the prevalence of people suffering from dust mite allergies and asthma, fighting allergens in the home has become a way of life for many of us. Finding the right pillows for your bedroom is an excellent step to keep feeling allergy free.
The importance of pillows in reducing allergy symptoms
The Allergy and Asthma Specialists of North Florida tell us that, “bedrooms are the perfect breeding ground for dust mites” because they flourish in warm, damp conditions. Pillows are large, dense areas that provide a nice home for dust mites. It’s best to find hypoallergenic pillows that use allergen barrier fabric when tackling dust mite reduction.
The AllerRest® Double DownAround® gives the protection of an allergen barrier fabric on the outside with the comfort and support of our most popular pillow on the inside.
Hypoallergenic pillows and allergy free pillows are different from allergy protection pillows
In pillows, ‘hypoallergenic’ refers to fabrics and fills that are less-allergenic than other options. This term is not regulated by government standards so it can mean different things to different manufacturers. Pacific Coast uses the standard of ‘allergy free’ and offers a warranty to assure our customers that all of the allergens have been removed. Both hypoallergenic and allergy free refer to the state of the pillow when it is purchased.
‘Allergy protection’ pillows use a barrier fabric that keeps allergens from entering your pillow as it is used. Pacific Coast uses tightly woven fabric that is lab tested to ensure tiny allergens cannot come through, yet still allow for airflow.
Hypoallergenic pillows, or better yet allergy free pillows, are your first defense to reduce allergy symptoms. But, a crucial next step is to use allergy protection pillows to prevent allergens from entering your pillow as time goes on.
Pacific Coast® AllerRest pillow for children
While some children grow up loving this pillow, the AllerRest Double DownAround mentioned above is a good option for children who prefer a higher-profile pillow.
Pillow care for allergy sufferers
Caring properly for your pillows will increase your success in reducing allergy symptoms. Doctors recommend washing pillow cases and covers weekly in hot water that is 130 degrees. They also encourage patients to wash their pillows regularly. Down and feather pillows are a great choice because they can be washed over and over without losing their shape or comfort. Unlike synthetic pillows, down and feather pillow can easily be washed every 3 -6 months. Allergy protection pillows give you the defense you need against allergens without the need of a zip cover. Since the pillow fabric itself provides the protection, there is no need for a double layer, saving cost and maintenance time.
