Before we visit:
On the morning of your visit we will need you to have your washing machine and tumble dryer empty and a roll of bin bags to be used to put any bedding or materials that will need washing in.
The rooms need to be as tidy as possible but please do not move anything out of any rooms that need treating as bed bugs maybe hiding in them.
We will inspect each room and with you bag all bedding etc. This needs to be washed at 60 degrees Celsius or higher on a long wash to kill any bugs that maybe on them. If items can not be washed then tumble drying on long cycles at high heat will also work. Any remaining bedding etc will be bagged and left in the rooms to be treated for you to wash once it is safe to re enter the rooms.
We will carry out the best treatment we see fit to control your bed bug infestation in as few a visits as possible but the minimum will be 2 treatment visits.
Upon completion :
After finishing the treatment we will leave you with a treatment report giving you a time that will be the earliest you will be able to re enter the rooms. This is usually 4 hours after the treatment. After the time and as long as all surfaces are dry you will need to air the rooms for at least 15 minutes.
The carpets, skirting boards, bed frames and bedroom furniture will have been treated with a residual insecticide. It is important that when putting bed frames and furniture back together or in place to wash your hands thoroughly after. We will list all treated surfaces on your treatment report so you will know what to be careful with.
After the first visit you must not Hoover or wipe any treated surfaces for 10-14 days. This is to allow the insecticide that was sprayed to carry on working on any bed bugs that may have been hiding deep in cracks and crevices.
The second visit:
We will arrange with you roughly 10-14 days after the 1st. We recommend you hoover the day before the visit as it will then be 10-14 days after the 2nd treatment before you can hoover again. As with the 1st visit all bedding etc will need hot washing.
We will lease with you during and after the 2nd treatment as to whether any further visits are required.
