Our preferred treatment method is also the most environmentally and family friendly. Heat Remediation is a process of introducing high heat (130 degrees or more) into a room or rooms where bed bugs are an issue.
These high temperatures will kill off bed bugs at all stages of development without leaving any chemical residue or other substances behind. This treatment is extremely effective and allows you and your family to return home immediately.
You may not be able to completely prevent bed bugs from entering your home, but you can help keep an infestation from spreading by being on the lookout for early signs of their presence. There are also some steps you can take to protect the parts of your home that may be the most vulnerable.
- Clean up clutter – keeping clutter to a minimum prevents giving bed bugs additional places to shelter.
- Regularly wash and heat-dry bed sheets, blankets, bedspreads and clothing that touche the floor. Bed bugs can even hide in laundry baskets, so be sure to clean these too when you do laundry.
- Monitor the things coming into your home – luggage, used furniture, and infested clothing can all be transports for bed bugs. Anytime you travel or have guests, inspect the things coming into your home for signs of bed bugs, and remove and clean them immediately.
- Mattress Encasement – While bed bug-proof mattress encasements don’t prevent a bed bug infestation, they can prevent the pests from infesting the mattress, which can help with bed bug detection and removal.
Heat Remediation is extremely effective for treating bed bugs and uses no chemical products. This method destroys the bed bugs at all stages of development (adults & eggs), reducing the need for future treatments. You also won’t need to be concerned for your family or pets upon return to the household, because there is no residue left behind.
