Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 16, 2012
As the pandemic problem of bed bugs resurges into the homes of Americans, Mattress Safe, Inc. was amongst the many companies specializing in mattress protectors to shift focus towards creating products to combat and prevent these pests. 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.
While several mattress encasement products for the prevention of bed bugs initially existed on the market, Mattress Safe, Inc. was amongst the first company to have their line of products tested by a board certified entomologist using live bed bugs. Mattress Safe, Inc. was the first and to this day remains as one of few companies to publicly post the results of their bed bug certification. Thorough testing by entomologists have proven that Mattress Safe's® encasements are effective in combating the problems associated with bed bugs.
Mattress Safe's® Patented "Zipper with the Hook" ensures proper resistance, sealing the mattress or box spring against bed bugs. Additionally sewing of the tunnel at the zipper end stop ensures that bed bugs can't escape from or penetrate into the encasement. Since Bed bugs cannot enter Mattress Safe's sealed encasements, they are an effective measure for preventing bed bugs from finding a home in the mattress or box spring.
With the inability of bed bugs to escape, Pest management professionals have found Mattress Safe's® Bed Bug Certified encasements a valuable control tool in preventing the spread of bed bugs. Bed bugs are capable of surviving for as long as 18 months without a blood meal. The soft and luxurious fabric chosen by Mattress Safe® is joined to a unique light weight barrier providing bite proof protection. Bed bugs and their hatchlings are subjected to starvation while trapped inside Mattress Safe's® encasements. By sealing and quarantining and recovering the mattress and box spring, Mattress Safe® encasements can prevent the expenses of bedding replacement.
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, and non allergenic properties of Mattress Safe® encasements can extend the life of a mattress and box spring, while providing early detection & prevention of bed bug infestations.
