Bed Bug Control

Bed bugs have made a strong comeback in the U.S., and are increasingly prevalent in homes, apartments, hotels, and dormitories. Bed bugs feed on human blood, and usually bite people while they are sleeping. Bed bug bites can be itchy and painful and may cause allergic reactions.

Active Guard mattress liners are proven to kill bed bugs in mattresses. Using Active Guard mattress liners is a great way to protect yourself and your family against bed bug bites. They are extremely easy to use, and go onto the mattress just like a fitted sheet.

Dust Mite Control

No more sprays and powders or wrestling to remove, wash and reinstall your mattress encasings every few weeks. Sprays and powders can cause allergic reactions and need to be applied regularly and accurately to be effective. Mattress encasings do not get rid of the dust mites - they continue to live and breed in the mattress while you are sleeping. That’s why we developed ActiveGuard.

ActiveGuard mattress liners don’t just trap the dust mites, they kill them -- for up to 2 years, providing continuous protection with no regular maintenance required. Simply place ActiveGuard mattress liners on top of the mattress, beneath the mattress liner, and/or bottom sheet. ActiveGuard can be used in addition to a mattress encasing, or as a replacement.

ActiveGuard mattress liners have a special, controlled-release formulation that protects the mattress, and those sleeping above it, from dust mites and their allergens.
