Preparing for treatment of bed bugs is very important to total eradication. We treat bed bugs with a special strategy and special equipment to ensure effective bed bug treatment and provide a warranty for services for all residential and commercial property services. “But,” you might ask, “how do I prepare for a bed bug heat treatment?”
Treatment for Bed Bugs – Preparation
The most effective method of getting rid of bed bugs is to contain them and to provide bed bug heat treatment. The main reason the client needs to prepare for a bed bug heat treatment is to provide access for the treatment. All recommendations in our Cimex Exterminating Treatment Preparation Process Checklist (.doc) must be followed before we can treat bed bugs. If the property is not properly prepared, the treatment will not work and Cimex Exterminating will not offer a warranty.
How Long Does It Take to Treat Bed Bugs?
Proper preparation and the degree of infestation are key to how long it takes. Eradication is rare in one visit, and it usually takes two to three visits for treatment to work. The process for total control and eradication can take several days to several weeks. Items in tightly sealed containers that are usually safe from bed bugs do not need to be emptied. All other items should be handled as described in the bed bugs treatment preparation checklist below.
If you find the steps for preparation challenging or have difficulty with strength and mobility, you might consider asking for help from family members, friends and social or charitable agencies. Another option is to employ Cimex Exterminating for these services. We know what needs to be done and it helps save your warranty.
Evacuating for Bed Bugs Heat Treatment
For the bed bugs heat treatment to work, the property must be vacated by all people and pets for about four hours, beginning when the treatment starts. It is safe to return when all surfaces are dry. Residents can return the same day if necessary, but they may still receive bed bug bites.
