Sarasota Bed Bug Heat Treatments
Back from the brink of eradication in the United States, bedbugs have staged a dramatic comeback. This resurgence is due in large part to the increase in domestic and international travel. Bed bugs can remain alive for several months without feeding on the blood of humans or animals. These insects hitch a ride from an infested area inside suitcases and the folds of clothing to your home or business. Because they generally feed at night and sleep during the day, it may be difficult for a home or business owner to spot an infestation of these tiny pests. The disturbing telltale signs of an infestation include tiny blood spots on your mattresses or bedding, shed bed bug skin and painful mosquito-like bites. In addition to bedding, bed bugs can hide in the crevices of furniture and baseboards.
Reasons for Concern
Although a bed bug infestation is no reflection on the level of cleanliness of your residence or business, it can still be embarrassing if friends or clients discover that these pests inhabit your property. Knowing that bed bugs may be biting you or family members at night can be psychologically unnerving and reduce your quality of life. Bed bug bites can cause an allergic reaction that triggers localized itching. Scratching the affected skin repeatedly may cause a secondary infection or scarring.
Bed Bug Treatment
Do not let bedbugs diminish your quality of life. Thermal Remediation®, also known as heat treatment, is a safe and environmentally responsible way to kill bed bugs in all stages of their development, including the adult, egg and larval phases. The process only takes one day and a single treatment. The recommended heat range for thermal remediation is between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit. Our technicians restrict the upper limit of the temperature to ensure that it does not exceed 135° Fahrenheit, which reduces the possibility of damage to your property and its contents. We use a HEPA vacuum system to remove any detectable bed bugs after the service. A thermal remediation treatment will give you peace of mind that the infestation has been eliminated.
