In an effort to make sure our customers are fully prepared for our bed bug treatment we provide this list of items that need to be done before we treat your bedroom for bed bugs.
Bedbug Treatment Checklist
- Day of the treatment – the following items need to be placed in sealed garbage bags or totes and taken to a commercial laundromat and processed through a single dryer cycle on high heat. This includes:
- All clothing from closets, drawers, and areas like under the bed.
- All bedding(sheets, comforters, blankets, pillowcases, etc.)
- All other fabric material that can be heated including stuffed animals and the like.
- Empty out all other non-fabric items from dressers, closets, nightstands, etc & place in sealed plastic totes or bags, neatly organized away from furniture to be treated
- Items may include – Alarm clock, remote control, framed pictures, etc.
- If bed bug evidence is found on/in these items, we may treat these items with Pest strips that will be placed inside the bag/tote containing customers’ property.
- Prior to Boo’s Bug Stoppers arrival, make sure the apartment or home is clean and tidy. All loose items must be picked up off of the floor.
- Run Vacuum cleaner prior to treatment. Empty contents into the garbage and remove them from the house. Clean vacuum cleaner thoroughly.
- Pets need to be kept in cages/carrying crates or kept out of the house during treatment and for four hours after treatment is completed to allow spray to dry.
- The customer or the tenant must stay out of the unit for four hours after the treatment is completed to allow the spray to dry.
- Highly recommended (but not necessary) for customers to purchase bed bug resistant mattress covers and properly install them over infested mattresses and box springs.
The success of the treatment depends on customer cooperation to prepare properly and complete this list in its entirety. Boo’s Bug Stoppers does not guarantee the complete elimination of Bed Bugs with a single treatment. Follow-up treatments may be required.
