CleanBrands and Orkin Announce Partnership to Provide Enhanced Protection Against Bed Bugs

EAST PROVIDENCE, R.I., March 7, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- CleanBrands, a trusted leader in mattress, box spring and pillow protection, has teamed up with national pest control leader Orkin to take bed bug protection for homeowners to the next level. CleanBrands uses CleanRest covers featuring MicronOne fabric to protect millions of homeowners and consumers from allergens, dust mites, mold spores and bed bugs while they sleep. Beginning in spring 2011 at select retailers, every consumer purchase of CleanRest covers will come with special savings off of any Orkin service, including bed bug services, pest control, termite control, mosquito service and wildlife management.

"We believe in integrated pest management and using a variety of tools and treatments to provide customers with the absolute best protection against bed bugs and other pests," said Orkin technical director Greg Baumann. "CleanRest covers are one of these effective tools, and we're happy to partner with CleanBrands to further help consumers."

From major urban areas to small towns, and from college dorms to individual houses, bed bugs do not discriminate when it comes to finding a place to live. These nocturnal, blood-sucking pests tend to settle in places where humans sleep, including mattresses, box springs and pillows, because it affords them direct access to their next meal. What's worse, in just six months, an untreated bed bug infestation can lead to thousands of bed bugs.

Experts agree that one of the best ways to prevent possible infestation is to block bed bugs from their food source by encasing mattresses, box springs and pillows with bed bug impermeable covers like CleanRest covers. Encasing works by entombing existing bed bugs while preventing external bed bugs from entering or infesting the protected bedding. When bed bugs can't infest the bedding, it greatly reduces their hiding places.

According to CleanBrands CEO Gary Goldberg, "This is the best insurance a consumer can buy against bed bugs. Encasing mattresses, box springs and pillows locks out bed bugs, protects sleep and gives consumers peace of mind."
