Occasionally, incontinence pads and pants are not enough to protect your furniture when you suffer from heavy incontinence. Ruined furniture is not a problem you should have to live with. You can increase protection against any stains or marks with waterproof furniture covers.
Here is some essential guidance for buying waterproof furniture covers:
Covers for the bedroom
Even if you wear protective underwear at night, often a small leakage is still likely to happen. Protective bed protectors will give you that added protection you need. Bed protection is available from a range of manufacturers, and they are made to go over your bedding. Products are made from an absorbent material and will soak up leakages to the ISO absorption level of the product.
Whether you have bladder or bowel incontinence, pads and covers can provide protection for your bedding.
The bed protectors come in a range of absorbencies from 1000mls to 5000mls.
You can buy bed protection in single, double and king size.
Here are the different products you can buy to protect your bed:
- Washable Underpads– These are small bed pads that cover the middle portion of the mattress. Underpads help protect the sheets so that you don’t have to constantly change and wash them. The tuck-in style is a recommended style as it comes with large flaps that help keep the pad stay in place. Designing your home to ensure it is incontinence friendly doesn’t have to ruin the style and decoration of your home. Waterproof under pads are now available in various colours and styles, allowing you to match the style and colour of a product to the interior of your home.

Chairs, Sofas and Seat Protection
Under pads are the best option for chairs and car seats in particular. Under pads are incontinence chair protectors that will keep your furniture dry from all levels of incontinence and protection from the odd leakages that might happen. Suitable for all levels of incontinence, chair pads will offer protection for light, moderate, heavy, and severe levels of incontinence. Depending on the manufacturer the pads are either square or rectangle in shape. The ISO absorption level will depend on the degree of protection you need.
Under pads are available in two styles, washable and disposable. The pads are versatile and will fit any size and style of chair. As a bonus, chair pads are also suitable for other kinds of furniture that you can sit on. Whether you need protection for a sofa or soft or hard furnishings they will offer excellent protection from leakages.

There are chair pads in the market that are available in decorative designs, so you can find a design that matches your seat.
