Sleep Tight and Don't Let the Bedbugs Bite

    We all heard the expression “sleep tight, don’t let the bed bugs bite” as children and have perhaps even said it to our own kids. But what sounds like a silly children’s rhyme can be, in fact, a very serious matter.

    Bed bugs are a real threat. They like to live in fabric seams and tiny crevices close to areas where people sleep. During the night, they come out and feed on the blood of innocent sleepers. Simply tucking your children into bed won’t keep them safe, but there are steps you can take in order to avoid them being bitten.

    If you suspect you have a bed bug infestation or would simply like to prevent one, the easiest thing you can do is to invest in encasements. Mattress encasements wrap snugly around your mattresses and prevent bed bugs from passing through. And the best part is that they aren’t only made for adult-size beds, but come in crib sizes too!

    Mattress encasements aren’t only great for stopping bed bugs, they also have additional great health benefits. SecureSleep™ mattresses are treated with anti-microbial protection, as well as hypo-allergenic and anti-bacterial components. They provide a dust mite barrier and keep bio-fluids away from the mattress, as well. These are all good things to look for in order to provide a healthy environment for your children. It’s also important to choose encasements that are pesticide-free, in order to ensure a safe night’s sleep for your family.

    As a parent, there is nothing worse in the world than a threat to your child. Still, there is only so much you can do to protect them personally, and every parent knows the value of a good night’s sleep. Protective mattress encasements are a good way to keep your babies safe when you aren’t there to do it yourself.
