FreshBed is designed to keep the bed bug out of the bed

The FreshBed for hotels rests on legs that constitute a physical barrier for the bed bug and make it impossible for the bed bugs to get into the bed on their own, even when one opts for a FreshBed with headboard. The headboard is then attached to the bed in ‘suspended’ manner, away from floor and wall, making the legs the only connection with the floor, thus creating a barrier. The design of the FreshBed iFo and the use of ultra-smooth composite is unique, making it practically impossible for the bed bug to climb up.

The bed bugs will not speedily steer for a FreshBed. Normally, they pinpoint the sleeper by heading for warmth and body odor (CO₂, for instance). This is complicated by the active ventilation system that is built into a FreshBed. It ensures the sleeper is surrounded by purified air with a personally adjustable temperature. This active ventilation keeps the temperature in bed constant, throughout the night. But it also makes certain all of the bedroom air is purified and the sleeper cannot be located by the bed bug. Body odor and warmth, you see, are dispersed throughout the room.

FreshBed's unique heat treatment

Should Housekeeping or your guest have found that a bed bug – or egg or larva of it – has unfortunately worked its way into the FreshBed (out of, for instance, clothing or suitcases), it is very easy to fit the bed with a cover attached to the Heat Treatment Device, a specially developed heat treatment device.

The most effective method to battle bed bugs is heat treatment. At a temperature of at least 50 degrees Centegrade, all eggs, larvae and bed bugs are exterminated through dehydration.

What makes FreshBed’s Heat Treatment Concept (patent pending) special, is that the bed is heated from the inside towards the outside. When the bed bug starts moving because of the arising heat, it moves from inside the bed to outside the bed, not vice versa. This is because FreshBed actively ventilates air at the right temperature throughout the bed, to ensure an optimal sleeping climate. Every FreshBed has that feature, and all air passing throught the bed is purified by a Hepa filter in advance.

The Heat Treatment Device is an extra heat treatment device that heats the entire bed to a minimum of 50 degrees Centegrade in no time, to end all life stages of the bed bug. In a natural way, without using chemicals or pesticides!
