Kill Bed Bugs with Steam Cleaners

Bed Bugs and Steam Cleaners

Bed bugs can and have invaded major cities across the U.S., infiltrating apartment buildings, hotels, retail stores, theaters, colleges, hospitals, military posts, and more. These tiny, blood-hungry parasites–which don’t transmit disease–feed on the blood of humans and animals and usually make their homes in and around your bed. You’ll find bed bugs lurking in the seams of your mattress, in between your mattress and box spring, in the cracks of bed frames and dressing tables, underneath clutter, and in the folds of curtains. Although bed bugs do not often pose a significant health risk, extreme and prolonged infestations may lead to a variety of negative physical health, mental health, and economic consequences.

According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Centers for Disease Control’s Joint Statement on Bed Bug Control, the best plan for eliminating bed bugs is an Integrated Pest Management (IPM) approach. Among other components of the IPM process, steam cleaners are highly recommended tools for safe bed bug eradication and prevention. These chemical-free appliances use only water and heat produce a dry vapor steam at temperatures in excess of 250 degrees Fahrenheit. Heat treatment is then applied to areas afflicted with bed bugs, which cannot survive when exposed to temperatures measuring 120 degrees Fahrenheit or greater. Unlike toxic pesticides, steam cleaners won’t harm your indoor air quality or trigger allergic reactions that may be prevalent with chemical pesticides.

As a rule of thumb, if you suspect that you have a bed bug infestation, we recommend that you first consult a licensed pest control professional before attempting any do-it-yourself remediation. A qualified pest control professional will inspect your environment and develop a recommended plan of action based on your environment’s needs using the IPM approach.
