Bedbugs

Margaret Jack  By Margaret Jack   |   Posted in Memory Foam Mattresses   |   Friday 26th October 2012

Bedbugs – also known as dust mites – are tiny organisms that feed on discarded skin and microscopic amounts of blood, and, as the name suggests, live within beds and mattresses. The regular body warmth in beds, combined with the many small, undisturbed spaces in the environment give dust mites the perfect place to exist. Although they’re not a serious health concern, they can be particularly irritating to those who suffer from allergies or dermatological problems, and large-scale infestations can cause unsightly welts and marks on the body.

Traditional pocket spring mattresses provide an ideal habitat for bedbugs to thrive, as they have many large hollow spaces in their core. Alternatively, memory foam mattresses, particularly those with tightly-layered compositions such as Ergoflex, don’t have an open interior which makes them far less hospitable for bedbugs to survive and thrive.

In addition to the inhospitable make-up of the layered interior, every Ergoflex memory foam mattress is pre-treated with anti-allergenic, making the mattress even more hygienic and resistant to the habitation of bedbugs.
