Vancouver Carpet Cleaner Puts the Kibosh on Bedbugs

July 18th, 2018 | by Angelo |    0   

The team at Angelo’s FabriClean knows that bedbugs can be a nightmare. Fortunately, as an experienced team of carpet cleaning and fabric cleaners, eradication can be simplified through the application of a very simple method—heat.

When bedbugs are discovered in the home, the first instinct is often to call an exterminator. But not only is this expensive, the solution often involves toxic chemicals that will linger long after. Even worse, those methods won’t affect the eggs, which means the problem could start all over again in a few weeks.

Fortunately, both bedbugs and their eggs are highly susceptible to heat, most notably steam that’s over 50 degrees Celsius (the hotter the better). So, before calling pest control—get a carpet cleaner to steam the bed.

Before starting, it’s important to ensure the area is properly prepared to help prevent a repeat appearance of the unwanted guests.

Remove any clutter in the bedroom and vacuum everything, including the carpet, furniture, mattress, and even the box spring. Linens and clothing will need to be washed in hot water, and sealed away in plastic bags to keep them protected until the cleaning is done. When the vacuuming is finished it’s important to clean and disinfect the vacuum as well, and throw away all bags or contents in the trash outside the home.

After that, it’s time to call in the carpet cleaning professionals. Angelo’s technicians are trained and equipped to clean and sanitize mattresses using natural, organic, chemical-free process that effectively destroys dust mites, bacteria, spores, allergens, dust, and decaying skill cells--not to mention those pesky bedbugs.
