Note on Bed Bugs:
If you have a bed bug problem and have covered your bedding in one of our encasings, then do not remove the encasing for at least 18 months. Bed bugs can lie dormant for up to 18 months, and they will resurface if the encasing is removed too early.
As a preventative step, an encasing designed to be bed bug proof can help prevent bed bugs from infesting your bed. If a problem arises with dormant bed bugs recurring after you have encased the bed or if you experience a serious bed bug infestation, additional steps and professional services designed to eradicate bed bugs will likely be necessary to remove these pests from your home.
