Part of our FREE inspection process is to describe the preparation required by the client before treatment for Bed Bugs. I am writing about this today in an attempt to save you some time and trouble. You see, yesterday I inspected a home where the man with a bad back had nearly crippled himself getting ready for treatment. And it was unnecessary. He took all of his clothes out of the dressers and closets, washed and dried them, then put them all in bags or totes. I felt badly for him because he could hardly stand or walk due to his back pain. He said he had worked too hard trying to move all the clothes.
Instead, based on the inspection, I would have asked him to keep clothes in the dresser and closets prior to treatment. I would also ask him to pick up any loose clothing, towels, or blankets that may be laying on the floor. Then, on the day of treatment, I ask that the bedding be removed from the bed. It can be laundered or just run through the dryer on the first treatment day.
Don't assume that because you found some information on the internet (like this page) that it is true. Also, each Pest Control company handles Bed Bugs a little differently. What one company requires may not be required by another company for the same treatment. Call in a professional that you can trust to help you with this problem.
