Frequent Questions From Our Bed Bug Heat Treatments

Tips for avoiding bed bugs

  • Look for bed bugs in your hotel room or at your destination. Make sure to inspect the mattress, sheets, or box springs for black stains and check behind the headboard, under lights, and inside dressers, drawers, sofas, and chairs. Notify the front desk immediately if any signs are present.
  • Teach your kids how to recognize the signs of bed bug infestations.
  • Vacuum suitcases before storing them back in the closet.
  • Wash all clothes in hot water and store clothes that go to the dry cleaner in a sealed plastic bag.
  • Avoid buying mattresses, upholstered furniture, clothing, or anything soft from garage sales.
  • Thoroughly clean secondhand furniture outdoors and inspect all drawers and crevices.
  • Don't place backpacks, shopping bags, or luggage directly on your bed.

Things to expect after bed bug elimination

Thermal heat treatments should kill all bed bugs and eggs, but you should still wash and dry all linens and clothing in the building on the hottest possible setting.

Along with laundering sheets and clothing, vacuuming is the most effective way to eliminate dead bed bugs and their eggs. Make sure to vacuum empty drawers and closets, along baseboards and crevices, and over sofas, chairs, and other upholstered items. Wipe down hard surfaces like your bed frame, nightstands, floorboards, and furniture.

While bed bug heat treatments from Gateway Thermal Solutions are effective in just one visit, monitor your home for the first three weeks after extermination to ensure complete eradication. We're so confident in our bed bug removal services that we offer a 60-Day No-Fault Warranty!
