Benefits to Bed bug Heat treatments:
1. No Chemicals used: Heat treatments will not lead to any long-term health side effects of exposed individuals; chemicals can be toxic if not properly ventilated before re-occupancy or if proper procedures are not followed.
2. Belongings- In most cases, you won't have to throw away your furniture that bed bugs have been hiding in. Keep in mind that in cases of extreme infestation, you still may have to.
3. With the heat treatment, no matter where the bed bugs are hiding, they can't run from their impending doom.
4. Effective: Bed Bug Heat Treatment has a higher success rate (97%) than Chemical treatments. Generally it's a 1 and done whereas chemical requires multiple treatments.
Honestly, I could give you a Flat rate but each Home, Office, Commercial Property is different. We will come out and do an inspection and give you a quote based on what we suggest. Sometimes, insecticide treatments might be a better option or maybe some areas we should do heat and others insecticide. Also we need to know the severity of how bad the bed bug infestation is.
Generally we need all candles, combustible, air fresheners, Live plants, pets and wax paintings to be removed from the areas that are being heat treated. We will provide a bed bug prep list before we come. We also will do a walk through with you on the day of treatment to make sure we got everything on the list covered.
After the treatment has been completed the temperature of your residence will probably still be very warm. Therefore, a cool down period will be needed in order to return the ambient temperature of your home to a normal comfortable temperature.
To help expedite the cooling down phase, we will have all the Windows open with a fan going. This just helps get the temperature down to bearable temperatures.
During the treatment procedure, some of your items have been shifted, flipped or relocated to other rooms in order to provide a constant and even heat treatment to all items throughout the home. We typically will not replace items back to their original positions due to the home being too warm for our employees to safely work for an extended period of time.
While your items are still in their temporary location, we strongly encourage vacuuming up and dead insects, casings or egg groupings that you find either in, under or no the heat treated items.
If purchased by a customer, mattresses will be sealed in mattress encasements to remain in place permanently. Ripped/torn encasements should be repaired or replaced immediately.
Do not shampoo/steam clean carpets for 30 days after treatment.
