Essentially we have two young children and it seemed that on occasion one of the kids (and my wife) would wake up with a bed bug bite. We have carpeted floors and I’d say my wife and I are reasonably good about vacuuming the carpets. But, we do some traveling and it’s possible that a bed bug traveled back in a bag or one just somehow ended up in the bed. So, we sealed the queen and the double with the mattress protectors and the pillows as well (will have to get two more for more pillows) and as far as I know we haven’t had an issue since.
The quality is high and the feel is good. We also have sheets and bedspreads as usual and I don’t notice a difference in terms of sleeping on the mattress or using the pillows. So, all good. I’d definitely suggest these products if you have had any issues.
