Preparation Prior To Treatment
Bed bugs are one of the hardest insects to treat. Preparing before a treatment session can increase its effectiveness, ensuring that those pesky blood-suckers do not come back again.
Ideally, the bed sheets & curtains should be removed & washed. The rooms to be treated should be vacuumed & cleaned. The drawers & wardrobes should be emptied and the clothes only re-introduced to the rooms once they have been washed or tumble dried.
The treatment will be less effective if the room is full of clutter. The rooms should be clear of toys, books, boxes, posters etc. Be careful not to put any of these objects into other rooms as you may spread the infestation.
Bed bugs usually only infest rooms that are slept in and we recommend treating any adjoining bed rooms to the infested room. They can lay dormant for up to 12 months so be careful with any objects removed & then re-introduced back into a bedroom within this time frame. In general, you do not need to replace any mattress or furniture, but if you are going to replace a bed or mattress, do it once you are sure the treatment has worked & all bed bugs have been eradicated.

What Do I Do After Treatment?
After treatment do not let family members or pets walk on treated surfaces for at least 4 hrs. Do not vacuum the carpeted areas that have been treated for at least two weeks or longer if the room(s) are not kept hot and dry.
Avoid washing the walls, bed frames or any other treated surfaces for at least two months. The reason for this is that the insecticides will last up to 2 months and washing, vacuuming and cleaning will remove the insecticides.
All bedding should be washed. The treated rooms should be kept heated and occupied at night as this encourages the bed bugs to crawl over the treated surfaces. Be prepared to see some bed bugs for at least 2 weeks after treatment. If you see more bed bugs after this time then another session may be necessary. It is important to reduce humidity & keep the premises warm, so leaving windows open or using a dehumidifier makes eradication better & quicker.
Do not introduce ‘new’ furniture to an infested area unless the infestation has been fully eradicated.
