Bed Bugs and Mites
Bed bugs and dust mites are most commonly found in almost all textiles including mattresses, pillows and bedding. They are common household scavengers that feed off of nutrients found in household dust, human skin cells and pet dander.
Some people are greatly affected by bed bug bites and may exhibit numerous sores, welts and allergic reactions, while others may not exhibit any symptoms. Although no known cases of the transmission of infectious disease have been reported, bed bugs are known to carry at least 28 different human pathogens. Bacterial infections may also occur if the bite creates an open sore.
By applying the appropriate amount of heat evenly throughout a structure and for the proper amount of time, we are able to kill dust mites, bed bugs and their eggs wherever they are hiding in a single treatment. This is an important fact given that not all current pesticide control methodologies kill bed bug eggs. Additionally, when the heat process is accompanied by HEPA vacuuming and air scrubbers to remove any airborne and dust residing allergens, the improved indoor air quality may help occupants breathe easier.
