Mattress Tips from Protect-A-Bed

For this holiday season, amidst the celebrations and the busy activities, keep in mind this basic, common sense tips for keeping your mattress away from bed bites. These are from Protect-A-Bed...

Protect-A-Bed’s basic tips for travelers to follow upon checking-in to their hotel:

Using a travel flashlight, conduct a very basic inspection of the bed by pulling back the bed linens and checking the visible edges of the mattress. Look for evidence of live bugs, dark brownish to black spots or stains that could indicate bed bugs. Inspect the headboard and the spaces between the carpet and the wall where moulted skins, excrement and eggs of the bed bugs could be found. Do not place your luggage near the places where bed bugs are typically found – on the bed, near the bed, on the couch or any type of upholstered furniture. Elevate your luggage on a luggage stand. Keep your luggage closed at all times. If possible, use hard shelled luggage. When not in use, keep items like laptops, books, toiletries, jewelry and electronics in sealed plastic bags. Notify the manager-on-duty immediately if you suspect bed bugs or if you begin to develop itchy welts on your body.

Protect-A-Bed’s basic tips for travelers to follow upon returning home:

If you are a frequent traveler, encase mattresses and box springs before you leave home. Do not take luggage inside your home. Unpack your luggage in an area that is well-lit and away from furniture and sleeping areas, such as a garage. Unpack one suitcase at a time. Immediately place all of your clothing that can be hot-laundered into the washing machine or into a garbage bag that can be sealed and placed aside. All items being laundered should be laundered in the hottest possible wash cycle and placed in the dryer on the hottest possible setting. Place all dry-clean clothing in a garbage bag, seal it and place it aside. Consider using dissolvable laundry bags to transport your clothes from your luggage to the washing machine a simple one-step process. Empty items that you sealed in plastic bags (computer, books, toiletries, etc.) and immediately discard the bags in an outdoor trash can.

Don’t do CPR on a Mattress

One of the things we have to learn surrounding the recent tragedy involving the Legend, Michael Jackson, is that CPR must not be administered on a mattress. Apparently, based on reports and accounts of the 911 emergency call released online, the 911 dispatcher asked the caller to put Michael on the floor in performing the CPR but since there was a doctor present, this advise was not given consideration anymore.

Mattress Tips For the Nursery

Building a nursery for the coming new baby? Here are some tips to consider for when you purchase your new baby mattress —

While recycling is the fad these days, it’s not a good idea when it comes to mattresses for cribs. Never use an old mattress for the new nursery. You don’t know where that mattress has been or what it has been soiled with. Older mattresses may also be too outdated, it doesn’t pass the standards for mattress safety today. In the same manner, stay away from used car seats as well. Avoid mattresses that have polyurethane foams, polyvinyl chloride covers and  flame retardants (PDBEs and similar chemicals). Get a mattress that is made of wool or organic cotton. A latex mattress is also a good choice. Make sure to have a mattress protector, those equipped with stuff that tucks moisture away. Clean baby bedding with biodegradable detergents.
