FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions)


1. Why was the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set developed?

Due to the current pandemic situation and growing need for a healthy and hygienic sleep environment, BEDGEAR specifically engineered the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set to be a first line of defense to keep sleepers clean and healthy. However, it is also an allergen barrier to enhance long-term protection, adding post-pandemic benefits for the consumers.


GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set includes mattress and pillow covers that incorporate a lab-tested antimicrobial treatment to actively protect the fabric against 99% of certain germs, bacteria, microbes and odor. This gives consumers a peace of mind knowing they are sleeping on a bedding surface that inhibits spreading of germs and bacteria, ensuring safety for the sleeper, especially for couples. GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set is also travel-friendly, ensuring a safe sleep environment for those on-the-go — at hotels, bed-and-breakfasts (BNBs), college dorm rooms, on airplanes (especially making the pillow cover a staple for air travel) and even staying at homes of friends or family members. Other bedding manufacturers are focusing on applying an antimicrobial topical treatment just to the mattress, which is the bottom of the bedding layer. However, GermShield™ Mattress Cover is placed between the sheet and mattress protector, making it one bedding layer closer to the sleeper. GermShield™ Pillow Cover is placed beneath the pillowcase to inhibit germs and allergens being exposed to the mouth and nose.

2. How does the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set fit within BEDGEAR’s good/better/best strategy?

GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set is the first product in this GermShield™ category, and the good/better/best strategy is still being developed by the Merchandising Team.

3. Why did BEDGEAR® add a GermShield™ Pillow Cover to the initial GermShield™ Mattress Cover?

The mouth and nose get most exposed to germs and bacteria. Therefore, it made sense to provide additional protection specifically to the sleeper’s head area. Like the mattress cover, the GermShield™ Pillow Cover inhibits germs and allergens.

4. Is GermShield™ being applied to other BEDGEAR’s bedding categories?

Yes. GermShield™ will be applied to other BEDGEAR’s bedding categories, starting with two new face masks. Other products are still being decided by the Merchandising Team.

5. Is the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set only used during the pandemic?

No. GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set is also an allergen barrier to enhance long-term protection, adding post-pandemic benefits for the consumers. It acts as a first line of defense to provide sleepers with a cleaner and healthier sleep environment.

6. How are other bedding manufacturers applying antimicrobial treatments?

Other bedding manufacturers are focusing on applying an antimicrobial topical treatment just to the mattress, which is the bottom of the bedding layer. However, GermShield™ Mattress Cover is placed between the sheet and mattress protector, making it one bedding layer closer to the sleeper that results in a cleaner and healthier sleep environment. GermShield™ Pillow Cover is placed beneath the pillowcase to inhibit germs and allergens being exposed to the mouth and nose.

7. When will GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set be available?

The fabric used on the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set is cured by adding heat to tightly close the yarns, eliminating any space for allergens or dust mites to go through.

11. Is the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set less breathable because of the calendaring process?

No. Even though the calendaring process tightly closes the yarns eliminating any space, BEDGEAR® has removed the waterproof barrier on the GermShield™ Mattress and Pillow Cover Set, resulting in increased airflow and breathability.
