You probably agree that bed bugs one of the most difficult pests to eliminate once they take up residence in your home. Unless you cooperate with the bed bug extermination West Palm Beach service provider, it would be virtually impossible to quickly get rid of them. If you’re dealing with a bed bug issue in your home, here’s what you need to do to keep those bloodsucking pests at bay.
If you don’t want to spread the infestation to a friend’s home, your car, your workplace or even your home after you’ve had it treated, it’s best to avoid moving any of your bed-bug infested belongings to another location before or during the treatment. If you have to move some of your stuff, make sure that they’re 100% bed bug-free.
Don’t forget to use hot water when you wash your blankets, sheets, pillowcases, and other bedding before placing them in a dryer that’s set on the highest possible setting – but not high enough to cause damage to your stuff. Once they’re thoroughly dried, it’s very important to place them in trash bags and to keep them separated from other items to avoid re-infestation.
To make sure that all bed bugs that have possibly clung to your clothing are gotten rid of, be sure to wash all of your clothes in hot water before setting the dryer in the highest setting that’s allowed for your clothing items. Furthermore, have your coats and jackets dry-cleaned. Never place your clothing in rooms or areas that have been infested by bed bugs until the treatment process has been completed.
Be sure to vacuum the mattress, box spring, and floors and place the vacuum bag in plastic before you dispose of it.
