The Importance of Mattress Encasements
Mattress and box spring protectors are very important weapons to protect your bedding against bed bugs or during a bed bug treatment program.
A bed bug certified encasement creates a barrier between the mattress and person sleeping on it. Mattress Safe® laminated "Superior" or "Ultimate" encasement will not allow bed bugs to enter, escape or bite through the encasement. Used as a prevention tool or during a treatment program, bed bug certified mattress encasements are safe, eco-friendly, and provide non-chemical protection.
Mattress Encasements must remain on the mattress during quarantine for 18 months or longer during bed bug treatments. This length quarantine period is due to the fact that bed bugs can live for 1 1/2 years without feeding. Mattress Safe® offers the unique "Duo" Protection System consisting of the "Superior" or "Ultimate" Total Mattress Encasement plus the "Simplistic" Overlay Topper with corner anchor bands, thus enabling the removal of the topper for laundering or when maintenance is required. The "Duo" Protection System provides an extra layer of comfort and with the "Ultimate" mattress encasement, it also allows the option of flipping the mattress anytime during the quarantine period.
