Not Just Any Mattress Cover Will Do!

For bed bug prevention, an ordinary mattress cover will not suffice. The reason for this is that bed bugs are able to escape or feed through the fibers of an ordinary cover. Bed Bugs are also able to find their way through the loose teeth of the side zipper unless it is specially designed. Using an ineffective encasement that was not designed for bed bug control will actually prove more detrimental than not using an encasement at all.

Mattress Safe: The Better Bed Bug Mattress Cover

Mattress Safe mattress covers are the best bed bug mattress covers on the market and one of the first to be backed by scientific data for proven efficacy. Mattress Safe encasements have been show through rigorous scientific tests to be 100% escape-proof and bite-proof. Protect-A-Bed bed bug mattress covers are also good covers and we carry them in all sizes for your mattress, box spring, and pillows.

Protecting the Bed Bug Mattress Cover

Once the mattress cover is in place, it should be considered the new surface exterior of the mattress and never be removed. A mattress pad or fitted sheet may be used to cover the encasement to prevent staining. Also, the bed bug mattress cover will remain effective only as long as it is not ripped or torn in any way, so if your bed frame has any sharp edges, bolts, or other protrusions that might damage the cover, it would be wise to install felt covers over sharp edges or install additional padding.

Keep Your Mattress Free Of Bugs

Getting rid of bed bugs can be tricky, given that they are among the most tenacious and unfortunately pesticide resistant of pest species. These tiny flat brown insects live by sucking the blood of anyone who is unlucky enough to sleep in a bed in which they have made their nest. In their wake they often leave red welts and severe itching as a calling card, and they are incredibly annoying to those who get bitten.

Not only are they annoying, but their nests can also present a health hazard to those who are allergic or sensitive to their waste products that easily become aerosolized, exposure to these can cause coughing and other respiratory distress in some people. With all this in mind, getting bed bugs out is priority number one if your home is infested, and here you’ll find all the products you’ll need to not only kill them but also to keep future infestations from occurring in the first place.
 

Mattress Covers for Bed Bug Control
If a new mattress is to be protected from bed bug infestation or an old infested bed is to be kept, your best non-chemical method of control is to place a smooth, tight-fitting, hardy cover over your old mattress. This is known as an encasement.

How It Works
Encasing the mattress and box springs prevents an infestation from growing by denying bed bugs access to the hard-to-treat inner areas. This all important function of bed bug mattress covers serves a dual-purpose:

  1. Effective Prevention. You will easily be able to spot and remove new clusters of bed bugs on the smooth cover, thus preventing new infestations.
     
  2. Effective Control. Any existing bed bugs that happen to be inside the mattress cover at the time of encasement are now entombed and will eventually die.

Not Just Any Mattress Cover Will Do!
For bed bug prevention and control, an ordinary mattress cover will not suffice. The reason for this is that bed bugs are able to escape or feed through the fibers of an ordinary cover. Bed Bugs are also able to find their way through the loose teeth of the side zipper unless it is specially designed. Using an ineffective encasement that was not designed for bed bug control will actually prove more detrimental than not using an encasement at all.
