Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) November 30, 2011
As the pandemic problem of bed bugs resurges into the minds and homes of Americans, many find themselves wondering how to combat these elusive pests. Encasements from Mattress Safe® provide both a method of controlling bed bug infestations as well as proactive, preventative measures against these pests.
Bed bugs spend most of their time hiding, preferring undisturbed areas. In a home or apartment, the top hiding places for bed bugs are the mattress, box spring, and bed frame. Consumers are more likely to notice the “tell tale signs” of bed bugs rather than see the actual live bed bugs themselves, and this is especially so in the early stages of an infestation.
The top hiding places for bed bugs are the mattress, box spring, and bed frame, with roughly 70% of bed bugs found harboring in these areas. Mattress Safe's® "Superior" & "Ultimate" mattress encasements effectively quarantine an infested mattress. Bed bugs trapped inside a Mattress Safe® encasement are prevented from escaping with their patented "Zipper with the Hook", and subjected to starvation. With Mattress Safe's® Box Spring Encasement added to the mix, consumers suffering with bed bugs can ease their mind over the high cost of replacing their bedding investment.
Chairs, sofas, and couches account for an additional 20% of bed bug hiding spots. Mattress Safe's® FurnitureSafe™ encasements eliminate these hiding spots. Much like the Mattress and Box spring encasements, Mattress Safe's® FurnitureSafe™ encasements also protect and recover furniture during a bed bug problem.
As a preventative measure, Mattress Safe® mattress, box spring, and furniture encasements eliminate the opportunity for bed bugs to provide themselves a home. Even without bed bugs, the waterproof, fire retardant, allergen resistant fabric of Mattress Safe® encasements can extend the life of your mattress and box spring, while providing early detection & prevention of bed bug infestations.
