1. Peace of Mind
On average American’s spend 40% more on their expenses just for “Peace of Mind” reasons. I.E. Insurance (Life, Car, Electronics, Animals, etc.). It is the western civilizations natural instinct to opt for backup plans. Having insurance won’t give you immunization from incidents, just like how having a bed bug mattress protector won’t sword off bed bugs from your life but, it will give you a peace of mind to know that those little pests aren’t partying on sweet nectar while you sleep.
2. They feed on blood and stay up in there like swimwear
Bed bug’s food source is blood. Unless you have a pet in your small dorm than you are the main course meal. I am neither Team Vampire, Team Cullen, or Team Mosquitos so biting is off limits.
3. Prevents bugs from harboring on/inside your bed mattress
Bed bug’s stay close to the source that feeds them, hence the name “bed” bugs, because that’s one place you’ll always be and use. Having a mattress protector will prevent bugs from hiding because the protector has close knit seams that don’t allow anything to claw in or out. PureCare's MiteTight® seams and locking zippers combined with their OmniGuard® Advance light weight performance fabric ensures that the mattress covers are quiet and cool. That has been a miracle for me! My bed doesn’t hold on to heat and it protects me from the bad guys!
4. Healthy environment in a dirty world
You are living in a building with probably more than 200 other college students. That is a dirty place. You are all 18-25 years old and probably still haven’t figured out that your room needs more than a swiffer broom and trash can. Create your own peaceful haven bed bug-free.
5. Breathe Easy
You’ve been out studying, raving, working out, etc. I know want you to be able to sleep easy like me. Certain mattress protectors also prevent bacteria growth, protections from dust-mites, molds, allergens, and more. For instance the PureCare Aromatherapy Total Encasement Mattress Protector does just that! There are also additional measures I like to take when setting up my room environment however most college campuses don’t allow candles and incense (my fav go-to decor). Thankfully the PureCare mattress includes scented satchels attached to the mattress cover in five scents such as: lavender, jasmine, mandarin, etc. So now you have a small haven that is bed bug free, dust mite free, allergen free, and smells good too!
What extra steps do you take to make sure your room is comfortable to sleep in?
