Prepare Your Home or Business for Treatment

First, we will begin by providing you with a treatment preparation checklist. You will want to remove any items from your home that may be damaged by high heat. Some of these items include but are not limited to: candles/waxes, aerosol products, electronics, plants and pets. You will also need to be sure to pick up and sort through cluttered areas such as laundry baskets, under furniture, closets and cabinets.

Last, you should make sure floors are swept and vacuumed. We will provide you with a more comprehensive list to ensure your heat treatment will be as effective as possible.

Treatment Day

Finally, it’s treatment day! The bed bug extermination process can take 10-15 hours to complete so make sure you plan ahead and be out of your house during treatment. We will set up heaters that pump air into your house and place fans around your home to circulate the heat. We will heat your home to between 130°-150°. Your home will need to maintain these temperatures for several hours to make sure all living bugs and their eggs are killed.

After your heat treatment is complete, we will cool your house back down to 85° degrees or cooler, vacuum, and move the furniture back into place so that you can come back to a clean house.

Get A Good Night’s Sleep and Relax

Since your home was heated to extreme temperatures, it may take a couple of hours for your home to return to safe temperatures. We will inform you when it will be safe to return home.

It will be normal for a couple of days to find dead bugs around your home that can be vacuumed up normally. Immediately after treatment, you can return any removed items. All that’s left is to relax and enjoy your bed bug-free home.
