Turning a blind eye to a potential bed bug invasion is a risk you dont want to take; especially when travelling. If you are planning to travel for spring break, or any time of year, here are some helpful tips for avoiding these pests: Leave your suitcases on hard surfaces. Do not put your suitcase on the bed, carpet or upholstered furniture. Bed bugs are less likely to invade your belongings if you place them on a hard surface, such as the luggage rack or table. Search your sheets at night to spot the actual bug. Bed bugs mostly hide out during the day, but you may be able to see them at night by using a flashlight. Baby bedbugs are nearly invisible, but their older relatives are brown to red-brown and oval-shaped.
Todays newer materials are smooth, not crunchy and are far more durable and comfortable to sleep on. We recommend that you purchase NON-Membrane mattress encasings that are cool to sleep on and can be safely dried in a cool to warm temperature clothes dryer. REMEMBER it is the hot water in your washing machine that kills the dust mites and flushes away the dust mite and pet dander allergen. NOTE: There is no need to dry your encasings in a hot dryer and your encasings will last longer when dried in a cool to warm dryer! Waterproofing your mattress encasing If you need to totally waterproof your mattress encasing the answer is very easy and inexpensive! Instead of purchasing a more expensive water proof mattress encasings or waterproof mattress cover that will have to be washed anyway if the person has an accident, just cover your mattress encasing with a sturdy but thin sheet of inexpensive waterproof material such as plastic, vinyl or nylon that can easily be wiped off or replaced if an accident occurs.
Step 3: If you can carry the box spring with one hand, use your other hand to support the upper part of the furniture. If not, you can secure the upper part using a removable tape. Step 4: Carefully move backwards. Your motion with your friend should be synchronized so he or she does not end up pushing you. You might also want to move first so that your friend can follow. Hold the end of the furniture at arms length so you can peek below and find out if you are going to trip on a tread of the staircase. Step 5: When moving into corners, slowly angle the furniture to fit the corners. Your friend might need to take a back step to position the furniture and avoid banging it to the corners of the stairs. Step 6: Once you have already reached your destination, carefully put it down. Bend your knees and support the top of the box spring when putting it down. Make sure your partner have also moved it down before releasing your hold on it.
Some are made from 100% cotton, some are made from polyester and some are a mix of both fabrics or are made from other materials. Some have membrane coatings bonded to them to make them dust mite and pet dander proof and some do not have any membrane coatings at all because the fabric is so tightly woven together, the dust mite and pet dander allergen cannot penetrate through the fabric at all. The big concern for most people is for their dust mite encasings to be smooth and cool for better sleeping comfort. In the old days some mattress encasings were made from crunchy plastic or stiff vinyl materials that were loud and uncomfortable to sleep on. Some of these materials would also quickly melt or come apart in a hot dryer.
Do I need a Box Spring for my Mattress? This question comes up at least once during bed shopping for 90% of all people. And for good reason. Box Springs are a multi-million dollar, multi-million tree chopping industry. So in light of the green revolution (re-co-lu-tion?) these days, one can only wonder: is there really a reason for all the senseless killing of defenseless trees just to have an extra foot of wood, fabric, and air underneath your fully functional mattress? As it turns out, the answer is both a resounding no with a hint of yes.
