The scariest thing we can imagine? Going to sleep like normal and waking up covered in red, itchy welts the size of moon craters. Bed bugs work their way into even the cleanest of homes, and once they’re inside, they’re almost impossible to get out. Unless you know the trick.
An encasement mattress protector prevents bed bugs from making a home inside your mattress. It provides complete 5-sided protection for your mattress. It keeps your bed clean, sanitary, and totally bug-free, so you can get a good night’s sleep.
Fitted vs Encasement Mattress Protector
Our fitted mattress protector does an amazing job of keeping out dust mites, bacteria, and stains, but bed bugs are a whole other thing. For that, you need an encasement mattress protector designed with bed bugs in mind.
ENCASEMENT MATTRESS PROTECTOR:
- Covers Everything: An encasement mattress protector covers your bed from top to bottom and corner to corner, including the underside.
- Zipper Protection: Nothing is left open, the protector zippers shut for added security. Bed bugs can’t get in even if they try.
- Dust Mites: An encasement mattress protector works just as well on dust mites as it does on bed bugs. Fewer dust mites mean reduced allergies and better sleep.
FITTED MATTRESS PROTECTOR:
- Covers Almost Everything: It works like a fitted sheet to protect your bed from edge to edge, but it won’t wrap around the underside, so bed bugs still have a way in.
- Affordable Protection: Fitted protectors are less expensive. If you’ve got a heavy duty bed bug problem though, an encasement mattress protector is probably worth the extra money.
- Dust Mites: It does an excellent job of keeping dust mites and other allergens out. If that's your only problem, a fitted protector is all you need.
What Happens When the Bed Bugs Vanish?
When the bed bugs disappear and your bedroom is safe again, put the encasement mattress protector away and break out a Sleepsteady mattress protector. They’re waterproof, breathable, and easier to care for than an encasement mattress protector. Stay cool and comfy all night long, and wake up refreshed.
