Steamers and Vacuums

Bed Bug Steamer

It’s proven that scientifically that high heat kills bed bugs. In particular, when exposed to temperatures of 120 – 140 degrees F (about 50 – 60 C) for 20 to 90 minutes bed bugs and their eggs die.  Steam is made when water passes the boiling point at 212 degrees F (100 C) which is well above the kill temperature and kills on contact. Since steam is just vaporized water it’s a very safe and effective way to kill both bed bugs and their eggs.

How to Use

When steaming your mattress, make sure you take your time and move slowly to ensure effectiveness of the steam. One thing to point out that you should be using a steamer that produces dry steam. Dry steam has less water content so there is less chances of getting mold.  Steam items like clothing, furniture, and curtains to make sure you hit all their hiding spots. DO NOT steam electronics or the electrical outlet. Electricity and steam/water do not mix! Make sure you allow your mattress and other items to dry completely.

Bed Bug Vacuum

Vacuuming help keep your house clean as well as suck up straggling bed bugs. When infestation is bad, you’ll be able to see where they hide because you’ll see black fecal spots along with their skin that they molded off to grow into their next stage in their life cycle. Vacuuming these areas will help keep your mattress clean as well as hopefully picking up a bed bug or two.

How to Use

Vacuum your mattress and take special care for seams as bed bugs love to hide there. Eggs are usually cemented down so you may need to use a toothbrush or some abrasive brush to loosen their grip before vacuuming. Vacuum baseboards and furniture to cover all your bases. Once finished, immediately empty out the vacuum cleaner and throw away in the garbage outside. Bed bugs are tiny so if you simply vacuum them without emptying the container, they may just climb out again.
