Sweep Bedding System Kills Bed Bugs

Bed bugs

The bedding system uses using an active ingredient that is closely related to the naturally occurring chemical in the chrysanthemum flower.

| January 13, 2012

NEW YORK — Sweep, developed by Innovative Textile Solutions, is a complete bedding system that kills bed bugs and helps prevent infestations.

The EPA-registered technology kills bed bugs that remain in contact with Sweep for 24 hours and is designed to contact them where they live. Unlike encasements that lock bed bugs on the mattress, Sweep is proactive and designed to kill. The mattress pad, mattress bed band and box spring encasement technology have been independently laboratory tested and are a safe, effective and odorless, according to the manufacturer. The system is 99% chemical free, using an active ingredient that is closely related to the naturally occurring chemical in the chrysanthemum flower, making the product a good option for sensitive accounts.

The Sweep system was developed over a 5-year period by a group of textile experts, entomologists and Ds. “It is, in fact, a spinoff of the chemistry currently used by the U.S. Military to protect soldiers in the field from insect born disease,” said Jeffrey Erdheim, a 35-year textile veteran and I.T.S. partner. In conjunction with the bedding system, Innovative Textile Solutions has developed and registered a full travel and storage system using the same technology. It includes luggage liners, garment bags, laptop case, under-bed storage and laundry bags. Travelers can use this system as a preventive measure to ensure they are not bringing bed bugs back with them.
