Mattress Firm’s Back to School partnership with Protect-A-Bed, the leading provider of bedding protection products, is focused on raising awareness of the importance of a healthy and comfortable sleep environment. “Unprotected mattresses, especially in a dormitory setting, can absorb dust mites, germs and bodily fluids after many years of different people using the mattresses,” said James Bell, Chief Executive Officer at Protect-A-Bed. “Protect-A-Bed mattress encasements and protectors, create a layer between students and what’s lurking in their mattresses, to create a more hygienic sleep environment.
Furthermore, according to Bell, mattress protection will prevent additional damage to the mattress in the event of an accident. Student-caused damage to a mattress results in damage fees at many colleges and universities.
To celebrate the Back to School season, Mattress Firm and Protect-A-Bed are hosting the Sleep Smart sweepstakes during the month of August. Students and parents can “like” the Mattress Firm and Protect-A-Bed Facebook pages, share back to school sleep tips, and register to be eligible for weekly mattress protection giveaways. On August 31, one grand-prize winner will be selected at random to win a bedding protection kit and a $500 Visa gift card. More details on how to enter are available at http://apps.facebook.com/sweepstakeshq/contests/270681.
