Box Spring. Sunday , February 11th , 2018 - 13:10:17 PM
Visions of warm sandy beaches or powder covered ski slopes have many students and families excited for their upcoming spring break. With thoughts focused on how they will spend their vacation time and considering what souvenirs they may wish to bring home, the last thing they are considering is protecting themselves from bringing home bed bugs. They like to travel and are good hitchhikers. They will hide in suitcases, boxes and shoes to be near a food supply. They are elusive, nocturnal creatures and can hide behind baseboards and in cracks, crevices, and folded areas of beds, bedding and adjacent furniture, especially mattresses and box springs. Bed bugs can wreak havoc on your life, not only because of their itchy bites, but they spread quickly and are extremely difficult to get rid of.
When sleeping in a new bed, check for signs of their feces. Small, black or dark brown dots on sheets or the mattress are sign that bed bugs are lurking. (If you are in a hotel and find potential bed bug fecal matter, ask for a new room far from the original.) If you suspect youve been exposed to bed bugs when traveling, bag up everything you brought and clean it out immediately when you get home.. Vacuum the interior and exterior of your suitcase (including the pockets) and be sure to wash all clothing in hot water, and put in the dryer, whether they are dirty or not. Just knowing what to look for when you are traveling and taking a few simple steps toward prevention can be the difference between the greatest spring break ever and a very regrettable getaway.
Realistically, from all of the research I have done on this (and with a girlfriend that constantly debates this point with me, Ive done my share of research), I have concluded that box springs only do two things well, and that is 1. increase the overall height of the bed, and 2. soften the overall firmness of the bed (given that the box spring is not extremely firm). Helping the mattress last longer is a distant, distant, and arguable third. As a person who neither cares for a tall bed, nor a soft bed, I found that platform beds are the most stylishly modern, environmentally-friendly pieces of furniture to complement my mattress. You simply dont need a box spring for your mattress/bed.
