Why Memory Foam Dog Beds are the Cleanest Dog Beds Around

Why should you get your dog a memory foam dog bed?

 

 

You mean why other than the fact that memory foam dog beds are the number one dog bed recommended by vets for dogs with chronic pain? Or other than the fact that a high quality memory foam dog bed can last over ten years? Well that's easy! Memory foam dog beds are incredibly easy to clean, and they help your house stay clean. How? Consider the following four facts about the cleanliness of memory foam dog beds.

 

 

Why Memory Foam Dog Beds are the Cleanest Dog Beds Around

1. Memory Foam Dog Beds Cannot be Washed

 

 

The first reason memory foam dog beds are so easy to clean is because memory foam cannot be washed. What? Let me explain. Designed in the 1960's by NASA scientists, memory foam is a special type of foam that is designed to react to your dog's body heat and body weight. This reaction allows the memory foam dog bed to shape itself to the exact curves of your dog's body, eliminating the development of any pressure points, and hence making memory foam dog beds perfect for dogs suffering from chronic pain. One of the key features that allows memory foam in the dog bed to react this way are the bubbles in the memory foam. When memory foam is created, thousands upon thousands of gas bubbles are forced into the foam. (Don't worry the gas is harmless). These gas bubbles get trapped inside the memory foam and give it its unique ability to change based on body heat and body weight. Now, the problem with these bubbles is that they are so small, if memory foam gets wet, the liquid gets stuck in the bubbles. This is a problem because memory foam is too delicate to be dried in a washing machine. It will simply tear apart if you machine dry it. As a result, memory foam dog bed must air dry. Unfortunately, it can take the memory foam weeks to dry out every single gas bubble. By the time the memory foam dog bed has dried, the water has attracted mold, and the memory foam will be infested with mold. Once this happens, there is no way to get rid of the mold. This mold, besides being mold, also smells, making keeping the memory foam around not a great idea.

 

 

2. So How Does this Make Memory Foam Dog Beds Easy to Clean?

 

 

Because memory foam cannot be traditionally washed or dried, memory foam dog bed manufacturers have had to come up with a creative way to keep the memory foam clean. The idea they have come up with is a protective liner. Memory foam dog bed makers make their beds with a factory sealed waterproof liner. This liner is sealed around the memory foam of the dog bed, and it prevents everything from odors to liquids from lodging in the memory foam of your dog's dog bed. As a result, you do not need to ever wash or dry the memory foam of your dog's bed, because it never needs to be washed or dried.

 

 

3. High Quality Dog Bed Liners

 

 

There are memory foam dog bed liners, and then there are high quality memory foam dog bed liners. Your basic memory foam dog bed liner will be waterproof. Your high quality memory foam dog bed liner will not only be waterproof, but breathable, anti-bacterial, anti-dust mite, anti-static, and hypoallergenic. Such dog bed liners will extend the life of your dog's bed because memory foam needs airflow to maintain its loft. Loft is imperative in allowing the memory foam to continue to react to your dog's body heat and weight use after use. Not only that but anti-static, anti-dust mite, and hypoallergenic dog bed liners will help you keep your house cleaner.

 

 

It is no secret that dogs are not the cleanest of creatures. They roll in mud, deer poop, and who knows what else. Anything that they get on them is coming into your house. If you have family members who are easily sick, or who have allergies, having a dog can be a major irritant, even if that family member is not directly allergic to the dog. You can also bet that your dog's bed is a perfect storage spot for germs and allergens. With hypoallergenic, anti-static, and anti-dust mite dog bed liners, your dog's bed cannot store allergens and bacteria. This means that you and your family can stay healthy.

4. Washable Outer Cover for Dog Bed

 

 

Obviously these factory sealed dog bed liners are not what your dog should be lying directly on. Most memory foam dog beds are built with an outer cover. These dog bed covers are like the pillowcases to your pillow. One gets dirty, you take it off, toss it in the wash, and put on a new pillowcase. You don't have to wash the entire pillow, and you don't have to wash the entire dog bed. Some companies even make their dog bed covers so that they fit in standard home washing machines. If your dog's bed needs a washing you can do it from home.
