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.

We had recently purchased a zippered mattress cover at our local store for allergy relief. It was labeled for allergies and bed bugs. It didn't seem to be vinyl or plastic, but it was very hot and too large for our bed. Every night I was sweating and the extra bulk really bothered us as we tried to sleep. I saw the Protect-A-Bed Mattress Cover you have and decided to try one since it mentioned being breathable. Boy, are we impressed! Not only does it fit nice and snug on our mattress, but it isn't hot at all. We love it and will purchase more for our other beds to help with allergies and keep our mattresses clean. Thanks!
We have been battling bed bugs for over six months. With this wonderful mattress cover the first nights' sleep was great! It completely encompassed the mattress with all the irritable critters inside. Now it is just a matter of bombing to get rid of the rest in the furniture. The material is great and can not even tell there is a cover on the mattress. Though for the price, I thought there was a box spring cover included. There was not. But with just the mattress cover the incidents of bug GREATLY reduced, and get better daily.
I have a 15" mattress and this easily zips around it. Shipping was super fast. I don't feel like I'm sleeping on plastic (which would have been grounds for a return for me), in fact, I don't feel like I'm sleeping on anything at all but my sheets. This is a good buy, period, whether or not you are worried about bed bugs with all the recent news on infestations. It's waterproof, so you can quickly wash up kiddie accidents too (sigh, wish I had this before my niece came to visit)!! Good buy.
We have had several mattress covers before but this one is the easiest BY FAR to put on. It's so soft and I love the terrycloth top. We are thrilled and have the covers on all of our beds, and I would recommend it to anyone. Well worth the money!!!!
If the mattress already has bed bugs, does Protect-a-Bed mattress cover work?
Will it encase the bed bugs on the mattress so that they do not get to the person to bite them? Will the bedbugs eventually die?
Any bed bugs you seal up in the Protect-a-bed Bed Bug Mattress Cover cannot escape or bite through the cover, and will eventually die. This means you can save your bed bug infested mattress without throwing it out. Protect-a-bed Bed Bug Mattress Cover 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.
Can you wash your Protect-A-Bed AllerZip Bed Bug Mattress Cover?
Yes. The manufacturer states: "Easy to Wash & Use: Machine wash in warm or hot water with another garment such as a towel. Tumble dry on low to medium heat with like garments. Wash before use for best results. Do not bleach (or use bleach alternatives) or dry clean."
Is it ok to steam the Protect-a-Bed Allerzip mattress cover while it is on the mattress?
Is it ok to use the bed bug control steamer on the Protect-a-Bed Allerzip mattress cover while it is on the mattress?
I do not want to take it out from the mattress to wash it just to make sure that if there are any bed bugs trapped inside the zipped cover they should not escape if I take out the mattress cover.
We do not recommend steaming the mattress encasements. You should steam the mattress before placing the encasement on it. Any bedbugs that are left on the mattress after the encasement has been put in place will eventually die from starvation. The Protecta Bed mattress encasements have a special waterproof backing and you will risk blistering the backing if you choose to steam it. Also, the mattress encasements have special bedbug proof zippers which will prevent bedbugs from entering or exiting.
I'm not sure about mattress size, if I get thicker Protect-A-Bed Mattress Cover will it be OK?
We cannot accept returns of mattress covers once they have been opened. You should measure the length and the width and height or thickness of the mattress cover before purchasing. You can always call us and tell us the measurements and we will be happy to tell you which one you need.
