Troy R. Asked: How do you get rid of bed bugs?


Daniel R. Asked

How do you get rid of bed bugs? I discovered my apartment had bed bugs the other night so I bought some spray to try and get rid of them. I sprayed around my whole apartment and I sprayed in the cracks of my furniture but they keep coming back.

We answered
Hey Daniel,

Cases of bed bug infestation have been at an unusual high for the past few years. We are sorry to hear you have fallen victim to the midnight snackers. Not to worry, we can help you get rid of the pesky problem.

To alleviate the problem you will need to contact an exterminator to treat your home, mattress, and bedframe. It is also recommended for clothing and bedding that was housed in the affected areas be heat treated or cleaned by a local dry cleaner. Be sure to use a cleaner, like Dependable Cleaners, who is familiar with handling this sensitive matter.

Enclose all items in a seal safe plastic bag before moving them. This will ensure you are not contaminating other areas. Always notify your cleaner of bed bug problems in advance and ensure items are sealed in a plastic bag. We heat the items above the thermal death point of bed bugs. Once the items are heat treated we clean and dry them separate from other clothing to ensure bed bugs do not spread to other clothes. After cleaning, we treat our machines to ensure all traces of bed bugs are removed from our washers and dryers.
