Kill bedbugs & eggs with steam
Steam Cleaning – No one likes to hear the word “Bed bugs” to be honest just hearing the word makes you start scratching instantly. Bed bugs spread very quickly and are extremely hard to kill off completely. When you find these in your home or office you may feel very disheartened and you immediately call an exterminator. This solution often leads to be very expensive and inefficient. Exterminators use toxic chemicals that are harmful to you, your family, and pets. After a chemical treatment it is not guarantee to kill the bed bugs eggs, which means your pest problem will be back as soon as the eggs hatch.
Luckily, bed bugs have one true kryptonite weakness: steam. As resilient as they seem, all it takes to kill them is exposure to a steam temperature of at least 150-180°F / 65-80°C (higher the temperature the better). For commercial grade steam cleaners – Dupray steam cleaners are a great option to exterminate bed bugs, as they produce lethal high temperature steam, however you can look at domestic options but to kill bed bugs it is vital the steam needs to produce the temperature quoted.
When done correctly, one single steam treatment can get rid of those parasites – for good. This natural cleaning and disinfecting solution is also the less costly and can be used for a wide variety of other applications at home or for your business.
Bed bugs love to live near their food source, which is blood. So if you or someone in your household wake up with some red itchy bumps, you might have bed bugs.
