Recently, Protect-A-Bed® donated bedding products to Lake County Haven, which provides transitional shelter, housing and supportive services for homeless women and children in the Chicago area.
With approximately 75 women and children living in the shelter each year, Lake County Haven’s representatives were concerned about the prospect of bedbug infestations so they reached out to Protect-A-Bed, headquartered in their community.
“We are so grateful for this generous gift from Protect-A-Bed,” said Laura Sabino, executive director for Lake County Haven. “With so many people in and out of our program, we are thankful that we are now able to take preventative action against potential bedbug infestations for our residents.”
Protect-A-Bed donated mattress encasements and bedbug detectors, which are tools that aid in the early detection of an infestation. Mattress and box spring encasements are bedbug entry, escape and bite proof and can be very effective at sealing in any bugs that may have escaped all of the other management efforts as well as protecting the mattress and box spring from becoming re-infested. Detectors are placed under the legs of beds and will intercept bedbugs as they move around.
If you are concerned about potential bedbug infestations, try a bedbug proof mattress protector such as Protect-A-Bed’s mattress encasement.
