ECO Bed Bug Specializes in Heat Treating – #1 in Washington DC
WHAT IS A HEAT TREATMENT?
The best method of bed bug removal is a heat treatment. When performing a heat treatment, we will seal the home and use our commercial grade heaters to raise the internal temperature to between 130-140 degrees. This is hot enough to destroy all bed bugs and their eggs, yet not enough to destroy your property or electronics. When heat is applied this way, it penetrates walls and crevices we are unable to reach with traditional pesticides. Heat treatments have a 99% effectiveness rate.
Heat treatment is 100% non-toxic and most of the time will not require you to throw out your mattresses or furniture.
BED BUG HEAT TREATMENT
Over the last decade, heat treatments have become the preferred method of bed bug removal with pest control experts. This is because pest control technicians only need a day to come to your home or business to completely remove bed bugs. At that time, no chemicals will be applied, and more importantly, heat is the only method known to destroy bed bug eggs. No pesticide on the market can penetrate eggs, which means if you don’t use heat, the struggle to control these pests will continue after an initial treatment. Have a peace of mind when it comes to your home.
Bed bugs can come from almost anywhere; traveling, work, play, commute. Stop stressing about how and where you got them and start planning on getting rid of them. Our experienced and well-trained technicians, all with countless hours of training and on-site experience, guarantee you the most accurate and efficient inspection available.
Top 4 things you should NOT do if you think you have bed bugs.
- Don’t panic. Nobody makes good decisions when they’re flustered. Rushed actions can potentially spread bed bugs throughout your home and make the time to get rid of them longer and the costs more expensive.
- Don’t throw away your furniture. Carrying mattresses and other furniture out of a known infected area poses a high risk of bed bugs dropping or falling off the item in other areas of the structure. If you insist on discarding furniture (i.e. old mattress that you don’t want anyway), completely wrap the item using the large wide stretch wrap usually found in the moving section of your local hardware store or inside air-tight plastic bags. Be careful, plastic mattress bags have small holes and bed bugs will crawl out
- Don’t abandon the bed. Bed Bugs will find you if you move to another bed or another room. Why risk contaminating the rest of your house? Beds are the easiest pieces of furniture to protect, treat and monitor. If set up correctly, you can sleep in your bed with a minimal risk of biting while your treatments are being conducted
- Don’t spray with store-bought products. That $15 remedy will do nothing but most likely create a $2,000 problem. Here’s why: Self-treating won’t eliminate all bed bugs and will push remaining bed bugs into crevices/wall voids that aren’t accessible in your home, making a proper treatment more challenging and more costly.
Inspections Are Performed For:
Early Confirmation… Bed bugs are less expensive and much easier to get rid of before they spread throughout your home. Our expert techs are trained to look for ALL signs of bed bug related activity and can determine a possible length of time you may have been dealing with your bed bug problem.
Your Peace of Mind…Confirm that bed bugs are not in your home if you’ve been exposed to bed bugs elsewhere, avoid unnecessary medications and trips to the doctor. Unknown skin irritations can be easily treated once you discover bed bugs are the cause.
