Bed Bug Supply Review - see what our experts have to say about this product
We are now offering low profile box spring encasements from SafeRest, which fit up to 5.5" box springs. Of all the box spring encasement brands we’ve reviewed, SafeRest's are by far the most advanced and highest quality on the market with full protection against bed bugs, fluids, dust mites and allergens. SafeRest was also tested with live bed bugs and are certified bed bug proof. Encasements are important as they seal off the mattress and box spring eliminating potential hiding places where bed bugs may reside. They also prevent bed bugs from escaping the encasement leading to their death by starvation.
SafeRest box spring encasements are made with a thick polyester fabric back coated with a bed bug proof membrane layer making them the strongest box spring encasements we've ever tested. Having a high quality box spring encasement is very important when dealing with an infestation as they are far less likely to tear or rip along a metal bed frame. Also, once installed, you can’t even tell that the box spring encasement has been applied with their nice fit and completely noiseless construction.
SafeRest Encasements offer two features not available on any other encasement. These features include their patent-pending 360° Secure Zipper feature, which prevents the end zipper traveler from pulling back by securing the zipper traveler with a Velcro flap. The other exclusive feature is their advanced Micro-Zipper, which prevents even the smallest infant bed bugs from passing through. SafeRest encasements are also triple stitched to protect the integrity of the seams.
Bed Bug Supply Team
The first line of defense:
Bed bugs earned their name by being more commonly found hiding on or near the bed than anywhere else in infested homes. Bed bugs feed on human blood while their hosts are sleeping, then hide in a tight and secure place to rest, digest, and reproduce. If left unchecked, a small number of bed bugs with access to a nightly meal can multiply into an infestation in just a few weeks.
SafeRest mattress encasements and box spring encasements are essential to the process of making your bed bed bug proof. Bed bug encasements seal off the mattress and box spring, eliminating those common hiding places that bed bugs use to breed and to avoid treatment efforts.
Rather than disposing of expensive mattress sets, SafeRest bed bug proof encasements can be used to seal off the mattress and box spring, trapping any bed bugs inside and preventing them from escaping. Over time, these trapped bed bugs will die of starvation due to the lack of a blood source.
When designing their encasements for bed bugs, dust mites, and fluid protection, SafeRest selected only the finest materials and developed their own exclusive features. The result was a breathable, noiseless encasement that prevents bed bugs, bacteria, dust mites, and fluids from passing through.
This premium level of protection has helped thousands with allergies and asthma to improve their health by providing a more sterile and allergen free sleep environment. SafeRest encasements have also helped others to protect and treat their mattresses against bed bugs. Finally, those who suffer from heavy night sweating or have children, pets, or incontinence have benefitted from SafeRest's breathable waterproof design, which blocks all fluids from passing through.
360° Secure Micro Zipper
SafeRest's patented zipper and enclosure completely seal your box spring on all six sides. The micro zipper spans three sides of the encasement for easy installation and removal.
The micro zipper's teeth that are too small and close together for bed bugs to fit through. The secure velcro enclosure seals off the end of the zipper to ensure there are no gaps that bed bugs can enter or escape through.
Smooth Polyester Surface
While other encasements use low-cost materials that rustle and retain heat, SafeRest's designers went out of their way to ensure that your sleep experience would be as quiet and comfortable as it would be without a box spring cover.
SafeRest's knitted polyester surface design is soft, smooth, and noiseless. Polyester resists sagging and tears while allowing air and heat to pass through.
Waterproof Breathable Membrane
Protect your box spring from fluid spills like sweat and urine with SafeRest's exclusive membrane layer. This unique design blocks any fluids from reaching the box spring while still letting the box spring breathe to prevent heat buildup.
SafeRest's waterproof membrane is free of vinyl and PVC. It has no phthalates or fire retardant chemical treatments. It's perfect for children, allergy and asthma sufferers.

Installing a SafeRest bed bug encasement is very simple, but may require two people since it involves lifting the box spring from the bed. Before you begin the installation, remove the encasement from its packaging.
With the help from another person, remove the box spring from the bed frame and lean it upright against the wall.
Unzip the box spring encasement on all three sides and wrap the short, unzippered side over the top of the standing box spring.
Gently pull the encasement down so that both sides of the box spring are covered, and begin closing the zipper.
Set the box spring back down on the bed to finish closing the zipper, and use the velcro enclosure to seal off the end of the zipper.
Care and cleaning:
SafeRest's Premium encasements are designed to last for many years if cared for properly. By following the included care instructions, you'll be able to take advantage of all of the protection and health benefits offered by these encasements for the length of their 10-year warranty and beyond.
Note that SafeRest's 10-year warranty covers manufacturing and fabric defects, and will not cover damage caused by failing to adhere to the care instructions.
Wash the encasement with the rest of your bedding at 95° Celsius (200° Fahrenheit), usually reached by the medium or high heat setting of your washing machine.
Tumble dry the encasement only on low heat to avoid damaging it. Temperatures over 55° Celsius (130° Fahrenheit) can melt or warp the waterproof membrane layer.
Do not iron or dry clean the encasement. The high temperatures involved will melt the waterproof membrane layer, causing the encasement to no longer be waterproof.
Do not use bleach or fabric softener when laundering the encasement. Bleach, detergents containing bleach, and fabric softeners can damage the waterproof membrane layer.
