Linenspa specializes in all things sleep, seeking to bring you comfort and helping to ensure your rest is more pleasant with less chance of interruption. I spent time reviewing the Linenspa mattress encasement thoroughly, and here, I’ve broken down what I found during my study.

Of course, finding the solution that fits your personal needs can be harrying and confusing, but I’ve gone through the process of reviewing the Linenspa Zippered Waterproof Mattress Encasement myself, as well as dredging through all the information available to get the down low on the product. Hopefully, I can ease your burden.

We all chase the same dream. No, that doesn’t mean we go to sleep and share a common consciousness, having the same dream. That’s another discussion entirely. But we all chase a great night’s sleep with nothing to distract us. Perhaps the most common disturbance – as well as the least recognized – is within our mattress. Without a protective covering like a mattress encasement, we’re leaving ourselves susceptible to gathering moisture, dead skin and dust mites, odors, and more.

Breakdown of the Linenspa Waterproof Mattress Encasement

When I got the Linenspa encasement, I was pleased to find that it was easily operated. I have a Queen size mattress, and it fit pretty well, the zipper on three sides making it a simple application process. When I lay down on it, the topper was soft, and I didn’t hear any noise. Of course, I didn’t exactly roll around on it, but it was a good start.

The warranty isn’t bad, either, though the 10-year agreement is limited with a lot of exceptions. That tends to raise a red flag for me regarding promises that can’t be fulfilled. At the same time, I try to go into everything with an open mind, so I didn’t linger on the possibilities here.

Features & Benefits

I always start by trolling the manufacturer’s website. I found it informative, fairly easy to use, and genuinely proud of the products available. I then moved on to the product itself, opening the package and inspecting it as I got ready to test it for myself.

Protection

The most important aspect of a mattress protector is the waterproof capabilities. While there are other claims made, let’s face it – we want to save our mattresses from liquids. Spills, incontinence, sweat, pets, and anything else that can leave smelly stains should be negated by a mattress encasement, right?
I slept on the mattress encasement for a night first, to determine how well it protected against sweat. I find this crucial myself, since I can be a pretty heavy sweater during the night. When I woke up, I checked the mattress to find not a drop, which suited me just fine. I did, however, sweat a little more than usual, evidenced by the dampness on the sheets.

I then moved onto my spill test. I wanted to test not only the waterproof aspect but also the odor retention of the encasement, I chose to spill white grape juice on the encasement. I didn’t want the stain, if there was a problem. The liquid set for 8 hours, and I checked in every 2 hours. Throughout the process, nothing leaked through.

I suppose the concern is that claims made by the manufacturer aren’t properly tested ahead of time. Maybe they just run a 10-minute check, too impatient to get out on the market with competitors. For Linenspa, their claim of having a 100% waterproof encasement are well founded.

Construction

The encasement is made of two materials. The waterproof backing is 100% polyurethane, and the surface material is 100% polyester. The general pocket depth for these encasements can range from 6-12 inches, making it versatile without allowing it to stretch too far or hang too loose. The encasement fully covers all six sides of the mattress, with a zipper on three sides to seal it, meaning you aren’t going to have a lot of trouble putting it on your mattress like the covers that act more like ‘pockets’ with a single side zipper.

Comfort

While this particular product wasn’t completely noiseless, it didn’t crinkle and squeak like the plastic products on the market. The polyurethane coating inside can really add a bit of a heat factor, but I think it was more important that the topping was quite soft and cozy. I really enjoyed the overall comfort of the Linenspa encasement.

Heat Retention

If you tend to sleep hot, like me, you might want to consider ways to reduce the fact that the Linenspa waterproof mattress encasement could increase that. Polyurethane is a very thick material that’s not particularly breathable. So, the outer softness and comfort are based on a nice, woven polyester that breathes and helps cool a little, but you might want to. rearrange some of your sleep habits. Think about untucking your covers at the bottom of the bed to allow for more airflow. Keep a fan in the room (white noise can help keep you asleep through the night anyway).

Maintenance, Protection, Care and Warranty

Linenspa waterproof mattress encasements come with a limited 10-year warranty. If you want to cash in on that warranty, it’s important to follow care and maintenance instructions to the letter so you have a claim regarding defects and workmanship rather than misuse, alteration, or repairs by an unauthorized vendor.
That being said, caring for the product is simply enough. It is machine washable and dryable on low heat. You shouldn’t use bleach, iron it, or have it dry cleaned. If you adhere to those specifications, you shouldn’t have any problem with the functionality or how long it lasts. I had no problem with it because I followed the washing instructions properly.

Bonuses

I haven’t had a chance to test every claim, but then, there are some I don’t want to test. For example, with outbreaks of bed bugs running rampant throughout parts of the country, it is definitely a bonus that the Linenspa is rated as proofed for bed bugs. That’s one thing that could really put a damper on your lifestyle, since you have to treat and leave the place for several days.

One other exciting aspect for me is the price. I’m not exactly a cheapskate, and I definitely want a quality product. But I’m not willing to pay a fortune for a slightly higher grade. So, the fact that I can get the Linenspa encasement for an extremely reasonable price is gratifying on a personal level and as a consumer.

Protection

As a whole, the Linenspa waterproof mattress encasement gets rave reviews regarding overall protection from spills. It also seems to perform well against gathering dander, dust mites, and sweat. There have been some claims that the material was ‘flimsy’ or that it tore easily. I think this is a matter of not carefully dressing your mattress. These are made to fit a range of mattress thicknesses, and you have to set it up accordingly, making sure you tuck corners tightly enough to avoid moving it around when you sleep. This can also decrease the noise level during the night.

Durability

Again, I feel that any detractors who speak out about durability have probably not followed the care instructions exactly. All things compared, the reviews are overwhelmingly positive. Let’s also keep in mind that we’re encouraged to replace our mattresses every 7-8 years. Therefore, the warranty on the product overreaches the need to survive that long. I’d say those are pretty good odds.

Odor

Odor wasn’t the least bit a concern with this encasement. I was left with pleasant memories of the way my night smelled – like the incense I burned and nothing else! No one else reported any poor odors in their reviews, either.

Customer Support

Being able to navigate the Linenspa website – and find a correct number that was answered – makes dealing with them simple. Several people’s reviews simply stated that they absolutely loved buying from Linenspa because they enjoyed the customer service element.

Feedback on its FeaturesOverall, the research I did definitely shows that Linenspa passes the test. They live up to their claims, and they are ready and willing to assist new and returning customers. They have a solid basis for success.

I can verify that, if properly used, the material is 100% waterproof, and that it sleeps soft with little or no noise. I couldn’t really ask for a great deal more at such an incredible price.
