Thermal Treatments and Encasements(3 posts)
It sounds like mattress and box spring encasements are pretty useful preventative measures for protecting furniture but we're going to be getting a thermal treatment-- is it better to just leave them uncovered because we're trying to kill everything and hoping that's the end of it? Or are there benefits to also having them in combination with the thermal treatment?
We would install the encasements after the treatment work.
However, you might have the encasements installed prior to the treatment work if this was done in an effort to isolate your bed and prevent biting.
In either case, the heat treatment should be sufficent to kill the bed bugs wheter encased or not.
Hope this helps ! paul b.
As long as they are cloth encasement's like Protecta Bed or Mattress Safe there should be no issue either way. With some of the plastic (non bed bug approved) encasement's they might interfere.
