Bed Bugs - Before & After A Service

Bed Bugs - Before & After A Service

What to do before a bed bug service

  • Remove and wash all washable bedding (sheets, pillowcases, etc);
  • Remove all items from the floor;
  • Vacuum the room, especially carpet edges;
  • Put any soft toys that are potentially infested into the freezer overnight; and
  • Prepare to leave the house for two hours.

What to do after a bed bug service

  • Do not wipe down skirting boards or headboards, this will remove the treatment;
  • Do not vacuum for the first week, and then vacuum daily, especially carpet edges;
  • Do not avoid the infested areas, as bed bugs need to come out of hiding and into the treated areas to be affected; and
  • Return all furniture to the treated rooms or they may spread.
Note: Bed bugs are not overly common in domestic situations around the Albury Wodonga area. If you are booking a bed bug service, please text/email us through a photograph.
