Bed Bug Treatment Preparation
This information, Bed Bug Treatment Preparation, is to assist in preparing your room for a bed bug treatment.
It is vital that the rooms are prepared to the best of your ability. If there are certain things you cannot do then that is fine but as much as possible that can be done will ensure a successful bed bug treatment.
Firstly, hoover all floors in the room around all sides of the beds too.
Bedside units should be emptied, these will need to be treated.
All bedding removed from the bed and this will either need to go straight into the washing machine or a bag tied up waiting to be washed. NOTE: Do not carry bedding around the house. Put it in a bag first in case any bed bugs fall from it.
Empty chest of draws and wardrobes in the infected room. These will be treated too. Clothing to be bagged up. If signs of bed bugs in the furniture then all clothing will need to be washed.
Secondly, no pets to be in the treated rooms.
Unplug and switch off sockets to things like phone chargers.
No personal items to be left laying about, laptops, games and phones.
This bed bug treatment preparation is a guide. You have to consider things such as not moving infested items around your property. Not leaving bedding from the bedroom with bed bugs just sitting on the floor as if it has a bed bug on it the whole treatment could be a waste of time. Anything that cannot be washed like clothing can should be placed into an empty bath or in the sun on the lawn and shaken off or wiped down and inspected.
