Just got off the phone with a customer wanting to know why our bed bug mattress cover for a king size bed was half of what the first company she called wanted to charge her. She wanted to know who was ripping her off. Bed bugs are bad enough, who wants to be made more miserable by overpaying for bed bug proof mattress covers.
She asks a great question. But, the answer is not so simple though. First of all it is not my place to say how much another company should charge for their products. We charge our customers what we feel is a fair price for the products and services we deliver. It is a simple concept we have used for all the years we have been in business and it has worked. Secondly, there are some companies that try to play on fear to make a quick buck. Having bed bugs is bad, some people are afraid and their fear makes them a target for the unprincipled.
Our past experience tells us that many of the companies popping up claiming to be bedbug experts will not be around next year. Sad to say but true. Look at all the so called mold experts that are no longer in business.
As far as the bed bug cover we sell, the fabric has been laboratory tested and we feel it is just as effective against bedbugs and allergens as any other cover on the market. Our bed bug covers for the mattress and pillows are made from a 100% stretch polyester material fused to a urethane membrane. Bed bugs can’t chew through it. The zippers we use are heavy duty and made where bed bugs can’t pass through. Our manufacturer is always looking at ways to improve an already effective product.
Many companies are selling non-membrane covers for bed bugs and to be honest I don’t feel comfortable telling my customers they will be just as effective. I would not use a non-membrane fabric myself if I had an issue with bed bugs. Bed bugs are bad and I am not going to mess around with anything I am not confident will provide 100% protection.
There are several very good companies, the Allergy Store included, that will give you honest information, effective products at a fair price. It is up to you to ask questions and feel comfortable that the information and products the company is providing is what you need.
Dealing with bedbugs is a big enough pain as it is.
Wishing you the best of health
