Zippered Box Spring & Mattress Encasement Covers
What is a Mattress Encasement?
Mattress Encasements fully protect a mattress from the elements and therefore it must cover all six sides.
Mattress Encasement vs. Mattress Protector
A mattress encasement is synonymous with zippered mattress covers since a zipper is needed to complete the coverage on all six sides of the mattress, including the underside of the mattress. A mattress protector only covers five sides of the mattress and is applied to the top and sides of the bed like a fitted sheet.

Individuals prone to allergies should fully protect the mattress using an encasement to ensure these pests don't enter from the underside of the mattress. For this reason, it may also be useful to purchase Box Spring Encasements. Dust mites love to make mattresses their home and the droppings left behind can cause havoc for allergy sufferers. Bed bugs on the other hand are more invasive. Bed bugs feed on the blood at night and can leave bites marks on the skin. Getting rid of them is difficult, and an exterminator can be quite expensive. Individuals living in regions of the world where bed bugs are prevalent, or who travel to these regions, can get peace of mind using a Bed Bug Mattress Encasement for healthy and bug-free sleep.
There are also airborne elements like pollen or pet dander that can get inside the mattress and accumulate causing allergic reactions at bedtime.
The mattress is a big investment and to prevent voiding the warranty, it needs to be protected from spills. The mattress encasement extends the life of the mattress and prevents sweat and urine from ruining the structure and causing an unpleasant odor. This product is especially helpful for users with incontinence.
