    I sleep on a thin memory foam mattress only. It's not a whole bed, and it's right on the floor. Should I encase this? Any encasement I buy is going to be too large (this mattress isn't as thick as a regular mattress) so I worry that encasing it may provide new places to hide from the extra material. I know they're in my baseboards, and plan to spray with Temprid SC so I am looking for any idea or suggestion that may help, thanks.

    Not a pro here. Call me Jon Snow...... for I know nothing, except what I've experienced.

    I never thought to ask.
    I'm buying a new 6" memory foam mattress soon.
    Most encasements say they stretch 6-10".
    If you're still around what did you find out?

    I am NOT an expert.
    My opinions are just opinions, they may NOT apply to yours or any situation.
    My advice is to always do a LOT of research.
    A lot of what I read contradicts other stuff on the Interweb.
