Bed Bug Prep Sheet
This service requires preparation prior to the technician's arrival to make sure your home or apartment is properly serviced.
All sheets, bedding materials and pillows should be removed and sealed in plastic trash bags until you can wash or dry them as described in the next step. This helps prevent the spread of bed bugs.
Sheets, pillows and clothes stored under the bed and in dressers need to be washed in soap and hot water. Bed spreads, covers and other items that can't be washed should be dried in the dryer on high heat for at least 30 minutes. Drapes should be bagged and dried on high heat for at least 30 minutes.
Toys should be removed and washed with soap and water.
Books, papers and all small items should be sealed in plastic trash bags and removed for inspection or disposal.
Upholstered furniture in other rooms will need to be thoroughly inspected and possibly treated. Any blankets, throw pillows, etc. should be bagged and dried on high heat for at least 30 minutes.
Use a vacuum to thoroughly clean under cushions and in the cracks and crevices of the furniture.
Vacuum carpeting and the floor thoroughly, especially along the baseboards with a crack and crevice attachment.
Dispose of the vacuum bag immediately in a sealed bag in an outdoor trash receptacle.
Aquariums should have the air pump disconnected and the top covered by a damp towel. Saltwater tanks may need to be removed from the premises.
Birds, dogs, cats and other pets should be taken to another location until after the treatment has had time to dry. (roughly 2- 4 hrs).
After the Service
Stay out of the space for a period of time long enough for the treatment to dry (roughly 2-4 hrs).
Keep the bed away from the wall and other furniture items away from the bed.
Following these steps is essential to ensure the complete control of any bed bug infestation. It may take weeks (or longer) to gain effective control of bed bugs, so your patience and help are greatly appreciated.
