How to avoid bed bugs is fairly simple but there are many parts. First off, how to avoid bed bugs is NOT by keeping your home clean. Although thought to be something that only affected very unsanitary homes, bed bugs can actually invade any home, regardless of cleanliness. The way bed bugs come into homes most commonly is by hitchhiking in suitcases or on a person’s clothes when they come back from an infected place, such as a hotel or another person’s house. To prevent this from happening, avoid laying clothes on the bed of a hotel, and wash all clothes from a suitcase in hot water immediately upon returning from a trip- do not even bring it into your bedroom until it has been inspected. It is still possible to get bed bugs, however, from pets and animals bringing them in, guests to your house bringing them in, and even (although rarely) bed bugs walking into your house through open doors and small cracks. The best way to prevent these invaders from turning your home into theirs is to use a bed bug proof mattress cover like the ones offered by Allergy Luxe. These covers completely seal your mattress making it impossible for bed bugs to hide there, meaning they will have to find somewhere else for an easier source of food.
Using these tips on how to avoid bed bugs and a quality, hypo-allergenic, bed bug proof mattress cover from Allergy Luxe, you can make your home safe from bed bugs.
