Why Mattress, Box Spring, and Pillow Encasings Make A Difference

Click Here For More Information On Dust Mites & EncasingsBecause Dust Mites Thrive In Your Bed
Your bed is a favorite habitat for dust mites because they can burrow down in the soft, dark recesses of your mattress, box spring, and pillows and all their needs are handily met. Food and water are provided by the moisture from your body and the dead skin cells you slough off every day. So you need a barrier between you and the microscopic dust mites that cause so much trouble. Zippered encasings made from impermeable fabrics provide the protection you need since dust mites and their allergen (dried feces and dead body parts) are trapped inside these covers. Health organizations including the National Institutes of Health, the Mayo Clinic, the American Academy of Asthma, Allergy, and Immunology (AAAAI) all recommend the use of mite proof encasings. The Asthma & Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) says, "The first and most important step to reduce dust mites is to cover mattresses and pillows in zippered dust-proof covers."

Because Dust Mite Allergen Can Cause Allergy & Asthma Symptoms
According to the AAAAI, "dust mite allergens are the most common trigger of allergy and asthma symptoms." This is undoubtedly linked to the fact that dust mites produce about 200 times their body weight in waste during their 30-day lifespan, which is the allergy inducing agent. Therefore, even if you were able to eliminate all the dust mites in your home (which is impossible), the waste left behind would still plague you and cause allergic symptoms. If you are one of the 20 million Americans who has an allergic reaction to dust mite allergen, putting encasings on your bedding is very important. You should also keep in mind a few facts about allergies: children of parents with allergies are more likely to develop allergies; dust mite allergen triggers allergy, asthma, and eczema symptoms; and, continued exposure to allergen can lead to an allergic reaction.

Because Allergen Avoidance Can Help Reduce Symptoms
If you are allergic to dust mite allergen, you may exhibit any or all common allergy symptoms: sneezing, sniffling, stuffy nose, runny nose, itchy eyes, and watery eyes. Often people wake up with the worst symptoms of the day since they are in close contact with dust mite allergen in their bedding all night. To be sure what is causing your symptoms, you can have allergy testing done by a physician. Avoiding the offending allergen is always the easiest way to reduce allergy symptoms. In the case of dust mite allergen, the most important avoidance step means using the barrier of mite proof encasings. It is critical to know that what you are using as a barrier has been tested and proven to block dust mite allergen and fully encloses the item you are covering.

Because Actual Encasing Users Find Relief
You may be skeptical of "expert opinions", but people who actually use encasings and find relief sing their praises. Here's what our customers have to say about each of our five styles:
  • BedCare Elegance:
    • Very comfortable and cool. Had tried 2 other covers from a local chain store and returned them both. Finally called my allergist to get [National Allergy's] site. Big difference in quality!
    • I have used this product for two years just purchased a new one for a larger mattress. Worth its weight in gold. A remarkable improvement in allergy symptoms.
    • I was told I was allergic to Dust Mites and that they were the cause of all my problems (stuffy nose, headache, and a complete inability to sleep). After purchasing this mattress cover I noticed immediate results. Finally a good night's rest. Absolutely no problems with a great, very durable cover. A MUST for anyone with allergies to dust/dust mites/etc.
  • BedCare Ultra:
    • This has helped improve my allergies and asthma soo much! I went from using my inhaler before falling asleep and upon waking to not at all in bed! It isn't hot or noisy, either.
    • Good quality product. Material is thickly woven. Very comfortable.
  • BedCare Classic:
    • I bought the mattress cover at the suggestion of my doctor because I have dust mite allergies. It seems to have helped (I'm breathing more easily and sleeping better), and while I was worried that I might hear or feel something different with the cover on, that hasn't been the case. It was also very easy to put the cover on the mattress and zip it up.
    • I have these on all 3 of my children's mattress to help with their eczema due to dust mites. They have had "accidents" in bed and it has not leaked through. We also saw an improvement in their eczema.
  • BedCare Supreme:
    • I've been very satisfied with the quality of the product and the fit. My allergy symptoms have been greatly reduced by using this product.
    • Love this mattress cover! It fits great over our pillow-top bed and has a nice, tight weave. I previously bought a cheap one and it ripped apart after about a year of use... I think because the weave wasn't as tight. I don't think there's any way that will happen with this cover.
  • BedCare Economy: It's new and not yet reviewed.

*All of our mattress, box spring, and pillow encasings 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.
