What’s sleeping in your bed?
The more I watch TV the more it scares me, I hate those commercials that say “How old is your bed, if your bed is over 8 years it has 10 pounds of stuff in it”, just what I don’t want to hear. It’s bad enough thinking about dust mites or worse yet Bed Bugs but you spend a great deal of time in that bed.
When the Great Bed Bug scare came I decided we needed to invest in some mattress and box spring en-casements and let me tell you I can now sleep without the thought of those critters jumping around more than counting sheep. There are a few side benefits about these en-casements, here they are:
- They keep things in and things out, now remember Bed Bugs just don’t live on beds.
- They keep out urine, sweat and anything else you might spill on them. Accidents happen like babies sprouting a geyser or the accidental dog or cat issue.
- Allergens especially within the bed can be kept to a minimal amount.
- These en-casements are not like years of past, they are crinkly and make noise. They aren’t as hot either.
So think about an en-casement as a way to protect and maybe extend the life of that mattress and box spring.
