Although bed bugs are not known to transfer dangerous diseases between humans, their presence in the home and the itchy, red spots often left from their bites can be hugely irritating and distressing. If you have bed bugs it’s best to contact a professional to eliminate bed bugs, as well as using anti-bed bug products that work to prevent the spread of bed bugs and prevent them from biting you.

Bedding encasements are highly effective. They will protect your bedding from becoming re-infested and create a barrier between the bed bug and your skin. Here are two products that really work to prevent the spread of bed bugs…

Anti-bed bug pillow encasement TENCEL® Premium

 

How does it protect against bed bugs?
The TENCEL® fibre pillow encasement creates a breathable barrier between your skin and bed bugs. The specially engineered fibres and zipper block bed bugs from getting in, or out, of your pillow. Over time, trapped bed bugs will die from starvation.

Is it easily fitted?
The 360 degree zipper allows for easy fitting of the anti-bed bug pillow encasement and easy removal for washing.

Is it comfortable?
TENCEL® fibres are more absorbent than cotton, softer than silk and cooler than linen. The TENCEL® pillow encasement won’t rustle or feel uncomfortable under your head as you sleep. It’s easy to clean and the fibres are eco-friendly and water resistant.

Anti-bed bug mattress encasement TENCEL® Premium

 

How does it protect against bed bugs?
If you’re worried about bed bugs, apply a mattress encasement instead of disposing of your expensive mattress. The TENCEL® mattress encasement covers all six sides of your mattress, protecting it from bed bugs, allergens and body fluids. By sealing the mattress bed bugs are prevented from getting in or out. Over time, trapped bed bugs will die from starvation.

Is it easily fitted?
The 360 degree zipper allows for easy fitting of the anti-bed bug mattress encasement and easy removal for washing as well as preventing bed bugs from entering – or exiting – your mattress.

Is it comfortable?
People are often worried that a mattress encasement will be noisy, rustle when you turn in your sleep or generally feel uncomfortable to lie on. However, the Allersafe TENCEL® mattress encasement has a silky smooth surface, which draws away moisture from the body and keeps you cool and comfortable while you sleep.

Is it easy to clean?
If looking to prevent the spread of bed bugs, keep you mattress protector on for up to 12 months (as bed bugs can survive without a feed for up to a year). The cover can be washed at 40 degrees and tumble dried on a normal heat. However it is not suitable for ironing or bleaching.
