We always try to make our customers understand that the work that they do before as well as after the treatment can dictate the outcome of our treatment. Below are a few key steps in preparation, and what a customer should expect before an exterminator comes to treat your home.
1.Take all linens off your bed and immediately put in tightly sealed garbage bags. Bed bugs main nesting areas are in and around your bed. It is very important that you seal up all your sheets that are on your bed. These linens are to be washed in hot water, after the treatment has been done.
2.Remove any boxes from underneath your bed. Many people have boxes under their bed with miscellaneous items such as pictures, and momentums. If you would rather not throw these items away, let the PCO know that these items were under your bed so he can inspect and treat them. If they are untreatable he may be able to inspect them, and if he see's no evidence of bed bugs on them he may let you keep them. Any linens underneath your bed should be washed, to kill any bed bugs or bed bug eggs.
3.Empty out all your dresser drawers and closets. Patiently take out all of your clothes and put them into tightly sealed bags. Wash all of these clothes in hot water. Wash according to the garment label. People often ask why it is necessary to wash clean clothes that are in a draw. On rare occasions bed bugs can travel away from their nests and may crawl into your dresser. To be 100% thorough we ask you to wash and dry all of your clothes. Better be safe then sorry!
4.Unplug all electronic items. Bed bugs are attracted to heat, and northeastern exterminating would like to treat your wall sockets and surge protectors.
5.Vacuum your floors. Be sure to use a HEPA filter if you vacuum any bed bugs. After you vacuum please discard your vacuum bag. If your vacuum does not have a HEPA filter then please refrain from vacuuming.
