The best defense is a good offense, right? Nobody wants to even think about bed bugs, but it’s better to have all the facts than to be blindsided if you ever end up with an infestation. The myths, the facts, and tips for ridding your home of these mini-monsters… What is a bed bug? || Bed Bugs are visible to the naked eye; about the size and thickness of an apple seed and reddish brown in color. They live on human blood; however they can live for months without feeding. Their bite resembles other types of bug bites and since some people do not have a reaction to bed bug bites the only way to confirm you have an infestation is to identify the bugs in your home. They reside together in tight spots like cracks, seams of luggage or clothes, and may also take shelter behind wallpaper or inside mattresses, box springs, and furniture. Myth || Bed Bugs are only found in dirty, cluttered homes or hotels. Fact || Even the most immaculately clean homes and hotels can attract bed bugs, but ridding your home of unnecessary clutter will reduce the number of places they can live. Myth || They only bite in the dark. Fact || Though more active at night, they’re not nocturnal bugs which means they can bite any time. Myth || If you have bed bugs you have to get rid of infested clothing, furniture, and mattresses. Fact || Laundering clothing will get rid of the bed bugs and in most cases furniture & mattresses can be treated unless the infestation is so severe that there is no adequate treatment. Prevention || Bed bugs are professional hitchhikers. Be mindful when purchasing secondhand furniture, mattresses, and clothing; inspect each article before taking it into your home. The same rule of thumb should be followed when traveling inspect the luggage rack and beds for any kind of residue or bugs. Using a protective cover on you mattress & box spring will help to eliminate hiding spots and make them easier to spot if an infestation does occur. Vacuum your home frequently especially if there is a possibility you may have come into contact with bed bugs. If you are living in an apartment complex with shared laundry or if you use visit a laundry mat, transport your wash in plastic bags and promptly remove from dryer directly into the bag and fold at home. Treatment || The aforementioned preventative measures will also help in the treatment of bed bugs, but you can also obtain special non-toxic glue traps that will aid in early detection of an infestation. Simply place the traps at the corners of your mattress and under furniture cushions. Sometimes it is necessary to seek help from a professional exterminator, but be sure it is a reputable company as insecticides alone can rarely eliminate the problem. Non-chemical methods such as superheating infested rooms should be integrated into the bed bug removal program.

With winter fast approaching, you're likely spending more time indoors and finding ways to keep your home warm and cozy. Now is the time to drape a plush throw over your sofa, pile on some soft pillows, and curl up with a steaming hot cocoa and a good book by the fireplace. Don't have a built-in fireplace? Try an electric fireplace to create the illusion of a natural fire. It's really all about layering on comfort and setting a mood. Ambiance || There are many decorating strategies for building your unique comfort zone. Ultimately, you want it to be a peaceful, inviting sanctuary you can't wait to return to at the end of a long day. Try dark, saturated wall hues if you want the space to feel more enclosed – this works especially well in a small den or media room. Warm, natural wood tones and neutral-hued upholstery reinforce that calm, cozy ambiance. Add personal photos, artwork and antiques to make the space truly yours. Soft Fabrics || The simplest way to establish instant comfort is by layering on pillows and throws in sumptuous fabrics like velvet, chenille or faux fur. In a bedroom, try a tufted headboard for your bed, an upholstered chair or bench, and include curtains and bed skirts for added warmth. The more fabrics and textures you have in a room, the cozier it will feel. Layering higher pile rugs on your floor keeps things toasty underfoot. You can even layer throw rugs over sisal or carpeting to up the cozy factor. Lighting || One of the most important elements of any room is lighting. Think of how the inside of a rustic pine lodge or traditional Swiss chalet looks. If natural light is limited, candles, task lighting - or the previously mentioned electric fireplace - create a warm glow and raise spirits on a super cold winter day. Putting overhead lighting on dimmer switches also helps to create a cozy mood, especially in a dining room.

Natural vs. Simply Green What's the Difference? Mattresses can be Eco-Friendly and natural too! Many of our mattresses have an Eco-Friendly or natural message to them. We label our online product with the icons below for easy recognition. Our Green Leaf System In order to help our customers differentiate Earth-friendly Sleep Lab products from other merchandise, we affix our own green leaf icons to them. There are two different Sleep Lab product icons you'll see on this website: LIGHT GREEN leaves are applied to Earth-friendly products. DARKER GREEN indicates natural materials are in use. Natural materials are grown and/or raised from plants, animals or the ground. These components exist in nature, not made or caused by humankind. Organic is a bit different than natural. Unlike certified organic products, natural products are permitted to employ pesticides, synthetic fertilizers, and/or hormones during the growing and raising of raw materials. Simply Green Many of the products featured at Jordan’s Furniture are considered green. These products use components designed to minimize the impact on our environment. Jordan's Sleep Lab refers to these products as Simply Green. Simply Green may mean using less petro chemicals, or making use of recycled materials, or using natural components in the finished product. All good considerations for the environment. If you are looking to support products that fit ecology into their manufacturing, look for the Simply Green leaf symbol outlined above. Visit a Sleep Lab location near you, and ask one of our Sleep Lab technicians to explain more about our organic and simply green options.
