There are several brands of anti-allergic bedding. Is there a difference?
Yes. Cara C'air bedding covers are tightly woven to contain dust mites and allergens. Their effectiveness is proven. Avoid brands that are not proven to work! Many brands do allow dust mites and allergens to penetrate.
Can I use my own duvet cover in combination with Cara C'air covers?
You certainly can! Simply zip your duvet, mattress and pillows into our covers. Then pull your normal sheets, duvet covers and pillowslips over our bedding covers!
Will Cara C'air bedding make me perspire?
The fabric allows cool air to circulate, so you will not experience (additional) perspiration with our bedding. Your perspiration can evaporate in the usual way, which is not the case with plastic and vinyl covers.
Are chemicals used to keep dust mites at bay?
No. Our covers cannot be penetrated by dust mite excrement (which contains allergens) - which means you cannot inhale these particles. Our bedding does not contain chemicals that kill dust mites. Cara C'air protects you from dust mites by containing them within the anti-allergy bedding covers.
I already have plastic covers. Why would I replace them?
For a comfortable night's sleep! Cara C'air covers are woven to be soft and to breathe. As a result you sleep better - and you are not disturbed by the sound of rustling plastic covers!
Does my medical insurance cover Cara C'air anti-allergy bedding covers?
Unfortunately, allergen-proof covers by Cara C'air are not covered by basic Dutch health insurance packages. Fortunately, some Dutch insurers do cover Cara C'air in their supplementary packages. Please contact our customer service for more information.
