Heat treatment for BedBugs

July 11, 2013

Heat treatment for BedBugs involves the use of heaters to bring the ambient temperature of a home or apartment up to or higher than 140°F. Typically the temperature ranges between 135°F and 150°F. The cook time varies depending on construction characteristics such as what the floors and walls are made of as well as the level and type of contents that the dwelling holds. But in most cases it runs between 3 to 5 hours. The temperatures are typically checked every 15 to 20 minutes as well as the movement of fans and furniture to ensure that there are no hot or cold spots during the heat treatment process. In addition during heat treatments for BedBugs there are wireless temperature monitors placed throughout the structure. This allows the operators to make sure that there are no areas that BedBugs or their eggs survive.

There are different ways of providing treatment for BedBugs. Some companies use glycol-based heaters. Others use propane-based heaters. Some is electrically-based heaters usually tied into an external generator due to the fact that most apartments or homes do not carry sufficient current to supply these large heaters, and there are those that multiple plug systems that will draw ams from your home. It is not necessarily the type of heat treatment equipment that is used but the knowledge and experience of the operators. We have been providing heat treatment for BedBugs since 2005. Initially there were few other companies in the Northeast providing the service. Now there are quite a few. So how do you know which heat treatment for BedBugs is best? I think the first thing that is important to do is to get references. Experience counts when it comes to cooking a home or an apartment. The next thing is to make sure that you get some type of warranty. Anyone can walk in heat your home for a couple of hours and leave. What you need is some type of guarantee that what they did during the heat treatment for BedBugs eliminated everything. So make sure you have either a follow-up canine inspection or they’re putting down some type of bed bug traps such as a climb – ups to ensure that you are absolutely free of BedBugs. With my company you get a minimum of 30 days even if you’re in an apartment building (60 Days for a private home) along with a follow-up canine to make sure that you are clear. We built a reputation based on doing good work and doing honest work. Now some companies will state that there is no way that they can warrantee the work that is being done because you could bring back BedBugs from your place of work, or your car, or maybe you brought them out of the house with you when you left and brought them back in you came home.

Now while this could be true but if you are properly advised on the proper methods of preparation and you’re getting a full instruction list on what to do when leaving the chances of this occurring is very low. So in most cases heat treatment for BedBugs is effective with only one visit. So make sure you check the references, make sure you get everything in writing, and make sure you contract with reputable and honest company and voilà you will get your life back.
