The Best Way to Get Rid of Bed Bugs from Clothes

Bed bugs are horrific pests. Unlike every other species, they prefer to infest the most intimate part of the home – your bed. Thus, many infestations cause psychological distress. Lots of people have nightmares or trouble sleeping when they have bed bugs. Even once the bugs have been removed, one may feel stressed out and worried that the bugs are still there. Rest assured that bed bugs can be fully removed. Contact us if you are suffering from a bed bug infestation and we will get rid of them quickly. We offer safe, effective, and affordable bed bug removal in Hamilton.

The best way to get rid of bed bugs from your clothes is to use the dryer. Simply put your clothes in the dryer and run it at the hottest setting for 30 minutes or more. You do not need to wash your clothes first but doing so will avoid shrinking. Put your clothes in a sealed plastic bag, once they are dry. This will protect them from the bed bugs during the extermination process. Remove garments when you need them, then put them aside in a dirty pile. Continue to wash and dry your clothes in hot water and keep them separated until the bed bugs are all gone.

How to Get Rid of Bed Bugs from Home

Bed bugs won’t go away on their own. The most effective way to get rid of them is to hire a licensed exterminator. He or she will inspect your home, then get rid of the bugs with a combination of insecticide and steam. The insecticide will eliminate the bugs on contact, while the steam will get rid of bed bug eggs. Should any more bed bugs emerge after the initial treatment, they will perish from the insecticide that was applied. Professional insecticides last for several weeks. If the bed bugs persist, the technician will return and re-treat the problem.

If the infestation has just started, you can try to remove the bugs yourself. Remove your mattress from its frame and inspect it carefully. Spray every bug you find with an insecticide that is specifically formulated for beds bugs. Spray the frame and the seams of the mattress, then apply some diatomaceous earth into the grooves of your bed frame. Add bed bug traps to the feet of your mattress and around the bed. Add a bed bug-proof cover to your mattress to trap bugs and keep them out. The smaller the infestation, the more likely you are to get rid of it. If it has progressed, you will need professional help.
