It's important to protect your mattress from the time
that it is unwrapped upon delivery to your home.
Prevent bedbugs from entering your new mattress
and box spring by sealing the mattress in a
HealthGuard Mattress Encasement.
HealthGuard Mattress Encasement products provide relief from worry about infestations. When you encase your mattress and box spring, any pests inside are trapped and because they are deprived of their food source, they die off over time. New pests are prevented from entering your mattress too. For best results, do not remove the encasement for 12 months to ensure that pests do not escape.
Bed bugs are small insects that feed on the blood of mammals and birds Adult bed bugs are oval, wingless and rusty red colored, and have flat bodies, antennae and small eyes. They are visible to the naked eye, but often hide in cracks and crevices. When bed bugs feed, their bodies swell and become a brighter red. In homes, bed bugs feed primarily on the blood of humans, usually at night when people are sleeping.
No mattress encasement or protector can rid your home of these pests once they are present. Despite their name, bedbugs make homes in carpeting, furniture, bed frames, drapes, picture frames, wallpaper, and other areas near their human hosts. Use of HealthGuard Mattress Encasements should be a central part of your bedbug control strategy. If bedbugs and other mattress pests are present in your home, be sure to consult pest control and other resources to understand how to clean your home thoroughly.
