Bed bugs are the hardest pest to get rid of today. They can hide in the thinnest of gaps, only coming out at night to feed when you are asleep, and they have developed very strong resistance to chemical insecticides. Bed bug heat treatment kills by denaturing the proteins and enzymes essential for the insect to survive. Heat treatment is the best way to tackle a bed bug infestation because they have no way of building up resistance to heat, which kills the bugs in all their stages, including, vitally, the eggs. Eradicating bed bugs with heat treatment is also an eco-friendly approach. Rooms can be back in action straight after treatment, and no furnishings have to be thrown away.
Our specialist heat treatment for bed bugs has been developed and perfected over 15 years. Rooms are gradually super-heated using special mobile convection heaters. Hot air is circulated within the rooms and (when done correctly) penetrates all the hardest-to-reach cracks and crevices where the bugs like to harbour. Wireless sensors linked to a data logger are placed in the most difficult to reach areas to ensure the heat penetrates fully. These are plotted on a laptop so that we can be certain all parts of the room have reached the required temperature for the required amount of time.
Heat treatment for bed bugs is completed in a single day. It’s a two-operative job and the room can be back in action that day. The length (and price) of the bed bug heat treatment will depend on how many rooms we are treating. Call us now for a free consultation on 08700-660-999 or email firstname.lastname@example.org. Rooms do get very hot and in a smaller property it’s advised that you vacate the property while the treatment is taking place, although we understand that it’s not always possible.
All our heat treatment operatives understand fully the need for discretion when tackling a bed bug infestation. We operate in un-branded vans and the heaters themselves are quiet and unobtrusive. The use of mobile convection heater units is important in this respect also, as it means the equipment is all inside with no requirement for a trailer outside of the property. It also means we can readily access properties where parking may be difficult, as can be the case in cities.
Some preparation is needed from you to ensure we can get the best result for you and can offer the guarantee. In general terms the key is that the rooms to be treated are uncluttered and certain items that will respond adversely to the heat (eg make-up, plants) are removed. There will be some bagging up and washing to do prior to the treatment taking place. On booking we will send you a document outlining the advised preparation.
We have bed bug heat treatment units covering all of the UK and in normal circumstances they can be with you quickly. The cost depends on the number of rooms to be heated and the layout of the property.
