Hospitology Defense System Spring Encasement
We own a beach house that we rent during the summer. The rental agent advised us to get bed bug proof mattress encasements to protect against bed bugs brought in by renters that had stayed in a motel on the way to their vacation and picked up bed bugs in their luggage. They advised that a bed bug infestion could cost us three or more weeks of lost rentals and the cost of treatment. Since this would mean thousands of lost dollars and unhappy renters, we decided to buy matress bud bug encasements for all 9 beds plus encasements for the box springs and pillows. After some research and looking at a local source, we decided on the Sleep Defense System.
I was very pleased with the quality of the product. The encasements were made from a strong warp knit polyester fabric. the zipper system was very well constructed. While two people were needed, we had no problem installing the encasements.
We also opted for additional chemical treatment to control bed bugs.
While we spent considerable, it was good insurance against a possible large loss of income.
