Creating a Healthier Home

Mattress and Box Springs

Dust mites thrive in soft furnishings like bedding materials. These microscopic organisms give off particles that cause allergic reactions when inhaled. Reduce dust mite exposure by covering mattresses and box springs in zippered mite-proof encasements. The encasements are generally made of plastic or vinyl, and may be covered with cotton, nylon, of knit fabric.
