Invisicase Easy Zip Mattress Encasement

The start of school is just around the corner and you may have a child who is going off to college or moving into his or her own apartment.  In many cases, you may be purchasing a new set of bedding for the occasion, whether it is for your child to sleep on or for yourself because you are passing on your existing mattress set to the bird who is leaving the nest.

Like with everything else, you want to protect your investment.  You may think you are covered because your bedding has a manufacturer's warranty.  If you read the fine print, however, you will learn that there are many things that can void the warranty, such as stains or holes on the mattress or foundation.  The best way to prevent this is to use a mattress protector, like the Invisicase Easy Zip mattress encasement, which does not only protect the top of your mattress, but protects the whole mattress from stains, moisture, allergens, dust mites, and bed bugs.  When purchased in conjunction with a new mattress set, the 10 year warranty covers the mattress encasement and also covers the mattress, should any stains ever make it through the waterproof cover.

The zipper, which makes putting on and removing the encasement much easier, is sealed with a large Velcro flap, so there are really no openings in the cover for anything unwanted to find a way in.  The fabric also stretches, so it should fit snugly on any mattress ranging from 12" to 18" thick.

The Invisicase Easy Zip mattress encasement by Leggett & Platt is available in Twin size, Twin XL, Full, Queen, King, CA King, Split King, and Split CA King.  Learn more about this product and how to protect your mattress on
