Reduce the risk of mite-related allergies with DreamGuard!
House dust mites are a major contributory cause of allergies in both adults and children. They thrive especially in mattresses and bedding, and their excretions are considered one of the most common allergens for humans. DreamGuard particle- and fluid-proof, yet breathable mattress, duvet and pillow covers effectively reduce the risk of mite-related allergies. Anti-allergy mattress-, duvet- and pillow encasings are recommended by the Allergy Society of South Africa (ALLSA) and the UCT Lung Institute. The DreamGuard range of anti-allergy mattress-, pillow- and duvet encasings are manufactured by Rivedersi Linens, a well-established South African manufacturer of quality textile products since 2003.
