Do You Need to Prepare for Bed Bug Heat Treatment?

If you’ve opted for professional bed bug treatment, your exterminator will likely provide a specific set of instructions for preparation. To get ready for a heat treatment, you may be asked to:

  • Remove linens and other fabrics, washing them in hot water.
  • Clear furniture and floors of personal items.
  • Empty drawers and possibly remove items from shelves.
  • Clean or launder all clothing in hot water and store in plastic bags. 
  • Move furniture away from walls to provide access to baseboards.

Post-Treatment Recommendations

After the bed bug treatment, you probably want to return to normal life as quickly as possible. The good news is that most people can go about their regular activities within a few hours. Your exterminator will also provide you with aftercare instructions, such as not shampooing carpeting for a couple of weeks or waiting a few hours before replacing bedding.

How Often Do I Need a Bed Bug Treatment?

A single, highly effective bed bug treatment administered by a professional should resolve the issue in just one visit. However, if the infestation persists, contact your exterminator as quickly as possible so they can provide additional services.
