Bedbugs seem to be in the news a lot this summer. Did you know a bed bug can drink a victim’s blood for ten minutes? We should call them vampire bugs. Did you also know the average bedbug can survive for one year without feeding? Now that I’ve got you creeped out (you’re welcome), you probably want to run out right now and purchase a mattress protector. If you are interested in protecting your mattress, then you are in luck. Thanks to Leggett & Platt (Twitter), the 127-year-old leader in the bedding industry, I’m giving away an Invisicase Surround Protector on my dad blog.
Before I get to the details of the giveaway, I want to mention that protecting your mattress from bedbugs start with the type of mattress you purchase. According to Kansas State University’s Institute for Environmental Research, an innerspring mattress dissipates heat at a faster rate than other sleep surfaces (visco-foam or air chamber). As a result, innerspring is better for keeping bed bugs away because heat and moisture is the perfect breeding ground for the little vampires. After purchasing a mattress, dads and moms need to seal it from bedbugs and other microorganisms. A mattress protector like the Invisicase Surround Protector seals the mattress, repels fluids and moisture, and allows vapors to easily breathe through the protector.
