What Are Mite Proof Encasings?

Mite-Proof Cover Education

The question is often asked, "Can I protect myself and my family from developing asthma and allergies?" The answer is Yes! Medical studies now show that families can help prevent allergies and asthma from developing in their children by removing mite allergen from the home environment during the child's first year of life. The microscopic dust mites, proven causes of allergic symptoms such as sneezing, sniffling, and swollen, itchy nose and eyes, are alive and well in most every bedroom, regardless of how fastidiously you clean. Allergy specialists and medical studies state that using zippered mattress covers on your mattress, pillows & box spring will stop dust mite allergen in your bedding from becoming airborne and breathed in while you sleep. Unlike the uncomfortable plastic covers of the past that were hot and crinkly, ours are cool and extremely comfortable - a real pleasure to sleep on. Like an invisible shield, they completely trap mites and their allergen inside the cover to give you the perfect barrier of protection while extending the life of pillows and mattresses. Today's covers are made of soft, comfortable, breathable fabrics that protect you and pamper you, too!

*All of our mattress, box spring, and pillow covers have been tested to confirm that they offer protection from bed bugs that may be living on your mattress or pillow. Remember, however, that mattress and pillow covers will not protect you from other bed bugs hiding in your bedroom. For complete elimination, you will need to contact a pest extermination specialist who understands how to rid your home of bed bugs.
