Bed Setup for Bed Bugs Heat Treatment in Hilton Head, SC.
We only use Electric Thermal Remediation Heat Equipment which is made and designed for Bed Bug Elimination and Control. In almost all situations we can Exterminate Bedbugs in the Hilton Head Area with one treatment.
All of our Trucks or Trailers have Built - In Generators that supply the power for the heaters. We run a cord from the unit usually through a window and tie in the heaters and start it up.
Albeit the treatment takes generally 5-6 hours and must be prepared for properly. However bed bugs have no resistance to temperatures above 118 degrees. We are generally heating at 130-135 through most of the process. It usually takes 1-1/2 hours to heat the area up above 118 degrees. Once we get above kill temperature we bring fans in which simulate a convection oven effect. We continually enter for a few minutes to inspect and also to adjust fans. While waiting on heatup we need to have all items and furniture away from walls 2 ft so we can use a containment spray around inside perimiter of walls.We treat electric outlet plates and any other cracks or voids that could contain bed bugs to give us some residual. When the temperature rises any bed bugs will scrable-run to try to find a cooler place. Our technicians watch this occur which gives away most of their hiding spots. We also use encasements on mattresses and box springs to ensure success. We offer a 60 day warranty and will make sure that your infestation is eliminated.
This is an article I wrote with PCT magazine about a large job we completed in Atlanta, Using Thermal Remediation Equipment. over 5,000 sq ft. infested as bad as we have seen.
