The primary treatment method we use is called Heat Remediation. We use heating equipment to raise the interior temperature of affected rooms to above 130 degrees Fahrenheit, thus killing bed bugs at all stages of development.
This method is usually effective at eliminating the bed bug population in your home after a single treatment, but we may also recommend other products make sure all bed bugs have been eliminated. Heat Remediation allows you to return to your home immediately after treatment and there is no chemical residue.
Our free inspection will begin with an assessment of the property to determine the extent of the infestation as well as the best treatment option. We will provide you a quote for services—the price we say is the price you pay, and not a penny more.
One treatment is normally enough. The process is very labor intensive for ABC and also requires the cooperation of everyone in your home. We will supply you with a list of tasks regarding bedding, clothes, etc., that must be completed along with our treatment, to ensure the effectiveness of the heat application.
Do I have to get rid of my mattress and furniture?
The great thing about ABC’s heat remediation treatment is that it doesn’t harm furnishings or structures, so you don’t have to get rid of your mattress, carpeting, bedding or clothing.
What is tent fumigation service, and when is it needed for bed bug treatment?
Tent fumigation (otherwise known as “tenting”) is a highly effective solution for eliminating serious bed bug infestations. Preparation for fumigation can be extensive, requires thoughtful coordination, and follows strict safety procedures. Tenting a home for bed bugs should always be done by a professional with proper certifications and licensing in order to be performed safely and effectively.
What safety rules does ABC implement when using fumigant gas for bed bug treatment?
Safety is our number one priority when treating your home. We adhere to strict guidelines set forth by the fumigant manufacturer as well as state and federal regulatory agencies. During all structural fumigations, ABC regularly monitors the fumigant levels within the structure for efficacy, as well as the air outside the structure. We use specially designed equipment capable of detecting fumigant levels as low as 1 part per million (ppm). We employ aeration times far exceeding what is required by law and confirm 0 ppm clearance levels multiple times before allowing you and your family to return to your home. Additionally, we follow all manufacturer recommendations, including not fumigating homes with attics enclosed in polyurethane spray foam insulation (PSFI).
We care about our customers, and want them to be informed about products and safe handling. For more information about gas treatment and safety measures, please visit:
