What is the difference between a mattress cover, pad, protector, and topper?

  • A mattress cover is simply the covering that comes pre-installed around the foam of your mattress, and in the case of Serta, is not meant to be removed/washed.

  • A pad refers to a thin, quilted piece of fabric that fits over the surface of a mattress to offer a little protection against light moisture issues.

  • A protector is typically waterproof and will guard your mattress against accidents and spills.

  • A mattress topper is a thick layer of cushion that sits on top of a mattress to give you extra support along with a great plush feeling for maximum comfort.
