Protect-a-bed AllerZip Bed Bug Mattress Encasements are the pest control and hotel industry's choice for protecting mattresses against bed bugs, allergens, dust mites, dirt and liquids. These high-quality mattress protectors are used in hotels worldwide, and have been certified by an entomology laboratory to be 100% bed bug proof. Any bed bugs you seal up in the AllerZip bed bug mattress encasement cannot escape or bite through the encasement, and will eventually die. This means you can save your bed bug infested mattress without throwing it out.
AllerZip mattress encasements are made of breathable, 100% white terry cotton so they are soft, cool and comfortable to sleep on. They are also allergy proof, dust mite proof, waterproof and absorbent, machine washable, and come with a 10 year manufacturer's warranty against defects in workmanship and materials.
Please measure your mattress and box spring before ordering!
Mattress encasements 9" deep will fit 7" - 11" deep mattresses.
Mattress encasements 11" deep will fit up to 15" deep mattresses.
Why use a mattress encasement for bed bug control?
Bed Bug Mattress encasements are a recommended addition to any bed bug treatment program. You will still need to treat infested areas of the bedrooms. However, because the #1 breeding ground for bed bugs is the mattress and boxspring, you can now just spray and then zip up these critical areas which will eliminate a large part of the infestation. In addition, this can save an infested mattress so you don't have to throw it out and buy a replacement. Any eggs and/or bed bugs trapped in the encasement will eventually die. Mattress encasements are also nice because they provide very few if any places for bed bugs to hide and harbor (compare that with all of the folds, seams, nooks and crannies of a mattress and box spring), and they are clean and white making future investigation and treatment easy. Also consider that if you should find bed bugs on your mattress again at some point in the future, treatment would be as easy as taking off the mattress encasement and washing it in hot water. Again, the key harborage areas for bed bugs would be protected, and so would your mattress investment.
We recommend spraying an infested mattress with bed bug control products first before encasing it and then keeping the mattress encasements intact for at least 12 months (bed bugs can live a very long time without a blood meal). The bed bugs and eggs inside will die, and the mattress will be protected from further infestation.

I had another mattress cover on my bed, from Allergy Control Products, that we paid a lot more for but that was made of thinner material that ended up ripping. This cover is nice and sturdy and has a nice, soft, towel-like covering on top for spills, etc. The better materials are, I'm guessing, the reason why it costs $30 more than a similarly priced cover at Wal-Mart. This websites price was excellent and the service was very good--I ordered the wrong thing by mistake, and they fixed it before it shipped.
I was getting strange bites during the middle of the night, and even though I could not find any sign of bed bugs - I bought the mattress and box spring covers and after vacuuming my mattress thoroughly, and spraying it with Steri-Fab, I put the covers on and made my bed. Have not had one single bite since!! Coincidence? Maybe.... but the peace of mind is wonderful!!! Anyone who owns a mattress that is more than a few years ought to vacuum it (gross !!!) and then put these covers on.......... Love them. Thanks!
As I observed this mattress cover, I was wandering if it would fit and was it durable. When I received my cover I found it very easy to place on the mattress, and I like the fact that it had a terry cloth top. It fits on my mattress perfectly and the cover is very good quality. I don't have to worry about it ripping or splitting like my previous mattress cover. I am well pleased with this AllerZip cover. The zipper seems to be well made in order to keep out unwanted pest. I would recommend this to a friend.
These mattress covers are great! I purchased two cheaper models from Target. They were made with a very flimsy material which didnt look like it could stand up to a machine washing without falling apart. The Protect A Bed covers are made with a very durable material, terry cloth on top, are very easy to put on the bed, zippers on three sides and worth the money. I bought two mattress covers; and put one each on the boxspring and mattress because I read that the boxspring one wasnt as durable. I am very pleased with these mattress covers. Highly recommended.
This thing does protect the mattress from critters, but because it fails to allow even air to permeate the cover, every time I sleep on it I awake the next morning in a puddle of sweat--as if I were laying on a plastic mat.
Should I wash my Protect-a-bed mattress cover before use?
Hello, I am ordering two covers (one for box spring) as I do not have an infestation but do not want one. I was wondering why it is recommended to wash the covers prior to use for best results? What does "best results" mean? I have to go to a laundromat and of course worry that I'll somehow bring something home with me, so having to wash the covers just increases that chance. Thanks for answers and any advice. Also, if you know whether the SleepTite EPA exempt spray is effective, could you let me know? Thank you so much.
The Bed Bug Mattress Covers do not have to be washed before you use them. 90% of our customers do not wash them before they place them on their beds. Washing the covers does soften them a little bit since when you first take them out of their packaging they can be a little rough to the touch. This is usually never an issue though once it is on your bed and you have a sheet over it. Almost all of our office staff has a cover on their bed at home and none of us have washed it before initial use. I am not familiar with SleepTite EPA exempt spray because we only sell professional products. It seems that it is similar though to our Steri-Fab spray, which kills all stages of bed bugs, even the eggs.
Will allerzip mattress encasement protect against fleas?
Will this also work on a futon?
The Protect-a-bed AllerZip Bed Bug Mattress encasements will protect your mattress against just about any type of pest. You will need to measure your futon mattress and compare the measurement against the sizes of mattress encasements that we carry to see if it will fit.
My Full mattress measures 9 in. between the cords that go around the mattress, but it seems to stick up an inch or so above the cords.
Do I need a 9 in. or 11 in. mattress cover?
If your mattress is actually 10 inches thick from top to bottom you can get the Protect-A-Bed AllerZip Bed Bug Mattress Cover 9 inch model. If your mattress measures 11 inches or more you should go with the 11 inch model. Carefully measure before you order because we can not accept returns on mattress covers that do not fit because of the risk of spreading bedbugs.
