Although it can be stressful to deal with a bed bug infestation, it is important to calmly and thoroughly complete several steps to prepare for bed bug treatment. You can breathe easy knowing you have already called in Pest Management, Inc. as you prepare your home to be treated. These steps are key in a successful treatment.
Once you have arranged a bed bug treatment with Pest Management, Inc., we will provide you with a detailed list of the steps you must complete before we come in to get rid of the bugs. Following the steps fully will help ensure that the bugs cannot find a hiding space in your home and that they do not return.
These treatment preparation steps can include gathering all fabric items – including clothes, curtains and bedding – and washing and drying them at high temperatures. You should then store the clean items in new, sealed plastic bags and dispose of any bags used to gather the items before they were washed.
You will also be instructed to remove all clutter from surfaces, floors and walls so that our team of technicians has complete access to every nook and cranny where bugs might be hiding. This can include pulling furniture back from walls so that there is room to access the entire space and taking down picture frames and paintings. Thoroughly vacuuming all surfaces before we arrive is also important.
By making sure to follow in detail every step provided to you, you will help make sure that the bed bug treatment is successful and complete.
Finding bed bugs is an upsetting event, but it is not a process you have to go through alone. Our skilled, experienced staff is here to guide you through the process every step of the way. If you are concerned about a bed bug infestation, please contact Pest Management, Inc., for advice, guidance and to schedule an inspection with one of our highly trained technicians.
