High temperatures kill bedbugs, eliminates termites, beetles, roaches, ants, rodents, scorpions, and other pests, without chemicals. Heat is an ecological and technological breakthrough in treating structures like single family homes, apartments, condominiums, hotels, hospitals, nursing facilities, medical laboratories, offices and industrial complexes.
Heat can be used to kill bedbugs and other pests in entire structures, confined areas, or for localized, spot treatment.
Kill Bedbugs & Rid Your Home, Apartment, Hotel or Dwelling of Pests, Without Harmful Chemicals.
Heat is the only non-chemical method to successfully treat entire structures. Other non-chemical methods such as Freezing, Electrogun and Microwave may be effective in small areas, but cannot treat entire structures in one application. With ThermaPureHeat®, we can treat large areas, small areas or entire structures with a single application in only six to eight hours. No three-day move-outs.
Heat provides a highly effective method to kill bedbugs, and your structure is safe to enter immediately after treatment.
Our trained service technicians use specially designed heaters. The Heat flows through flexible ducting to the designated treatment areas and is confined by thermal drapes. Inside temperatures are monitored by state-of-the-art digital thermometers and needle thin temperature probes to ensure that wood core temperatures are maintained at levels which are lethal to wood destroying insects.
Heat is more effective than other non-chemical methods at killing bedbugs and other pests.
Why you’ll prefer ThermaPureHeat® over fumigation to kill & eradicate bed bugs and other pests
- No toxic chemicals
- No three day move out
- No odor
- No bagging of food
- No harm to people & pets
- Fewer neighbors complaining
Heat sensitive items need protection
Large heat sensitive objects like TVs, stereos and computers are protected by special thermal blankets. Items such as plants, artwork, candles, plastics, software, DVDs and CDs are temporarily removed from the treatment area.

Kill Bedbugs and Dust Mites with ThermaPureHeat®
Dust mites and bed bugs are most commonly found in almost all textiles including mattresses, pillows, and quilts. They are common household scavengers that feed off of nutrients found in household dust, human skin cells, and pet dander. The ThermaPureHeat® process has a unique advantage in handling dust mites and their related allergens. The process raising the core temperature of the structure to the necessary 140°F. The heat process is accompanied by HEPA vacuuming and air scrubbers which will remove any airborne and dust residing allergens.
Another benefit of the ThermaPureHeat® process is its ability to spot treat specific areas infested with dust mites. The process can kill bedbugs and dust mites in your entire structure or it can just treat your mattresses and drapes. Kill the bedbugs and mites that hide deep in your pillows, mattresses, and drapes letting you breathe easier with greatly improved indoor air quality.
Kill Cockroaches with ThermaPureHeat®
Cockroaches can be a problem in any dwelling that prepares and stores food items. Cockroaches contaminate food items, cooking and eating utensils. They destroy paper goods and fabrics, and spread disease. German cockroaches can transmit Staphylococcus, Streptococcus, the hepatitis virus, and coli form bacteria.
They can also spread typhoid and dysentery. The German cockroach will mainly inhabit any area where food preparation occurs and bathrooms, because they favor to be in warm, humid areas that are close to food and water. The German cockroach reproduces the fastest, producing an egg case that carries as many as 30 young every few weeks. The ThermaPureHeat® process is effective in stopping the spread of cockroach populations.
“Increased immigration from developing nations and international travel both have sparked the bedbug resurgence. It also discusses how they don’t just live in mattresses and box springs, but rather “any wall or floor crack the thickness of a playing card can accommodate a bedbug.”

Kill Rodents with ThermaPureHeat®
Rodents are a major problem for structures and their occupants. They can cause physical harm to structures, attract other pests, and spread many of the 200 known diseases which they carry. ThermaPureHeat® is a natural choice for removing rodents from a structure and for killing the diseases they may leave behind.
Rodents are notorious for causing damage to a structure and your valuable contents. They build nests behind walls and in attics where they store caches of food which may attract other pests into the structure. Their tooth structure causes rodents to gnaw on items, including furniture, electronic wiring and equipment, and clothing, in order to wear down their teeth.
Rodents are notorious for spreading many diseases including, but not limited to: plague, typhus, salmonella food poisoning, tularemia, endemic relapsing fever, and Rocky Mountain spotted fever.
Kill Drywood Termites with ThermaPureHeat®
Termites are very destructive to any structure. The threat termites pose to a structure are real and ignoring this pest and others can be costly.
- Termites can be hidden for 10 to 12 years before a swarm becomes visible,
- Homeowners insurance doesn’t cover termite damage,
- A small colony can devour a linear foot of a 2-by-4 in five months.
According to the California Department of Consumer Affairs the only two effective methods for total whole-house eradication are fumigation and heat. The ability for heat to penetrate inside of wood to kill dry wood termites makes the ThermaPureHeat® process an effective non-chemical tool for wholestructure eradication of these pests.
How Is ThermaPureHeat® Implemented?
Clean, dry heat, is introduced to the bedroom or building and the inside air is slowly raised to a safe “sauna-like temperature”. To ensure that the temperatures of 140-150ºF are maintained for a kill of targeted organisms, state-of-the-art digital thermometers monitor inside ambient, surface, and core temperatures. This heating process penetrates cracks and crevices to kill bed bugs larvae, adults and eggs. Additionally the process kills inaccessible mold and bacteria for a higher level of cleanliness.
It’s Just Heat from Alliance Environmental
Since no toxic chemicals are used, our technicians can enter and monitor the treated area. No harmful residues to contaminate the air or surfaces. It’s just Heat.
