How Does A Heat Treatment Work?

At Moyer, our goal is to stop bed bug infestations before they begin. That's why we have K9 bed bug inspectors that can sniff out bed bugs while they are still in their eggs. But, sometimes we are called in too late, and a bed bug infestation has gotten to a point where it can only be effectively eradicated with a heat treatment. If this is the case for you, you probably have questions. Lots of questions! Here are some of the things you can expect from a heat treatment.

  • Heat is Eco-friendly. When the heat treatment is done, you can immediately return to your home or apartment without any fear of being harmed by chemicals.

  • If you've seen any of the many news stories about homes and apartments being burned down during a heat treatment, don't worry. When you have Moyer take care of your heat treatment, your property will be safe. We use the most advanced technology and employ the most experienced and educated professionals in the industry. Our heaters are self-regulating to keep a constant level of heat, and sensors are used to monitor heat throughout the structure we are heating.

  • Many homeowners worry about sensitive objects being damaged by the heat. Don't worry. We have a lot of experience doing heat treatments. We will let you know what items need to be removed and what items need to be protected. Your keepsakes will be safe.

  • If you're worried about being displaced from your home for days, we have good news. We'll have you back into your home the same day we do the heat treatment. You don't have to worry about spending a bunch of money staying at hotels (where you can potentially pick up more bed bugs).

  • Some precautions will have to be made so that bed bugs don't return. We will advise you on the methods to make sure bed bugs don't leave with you and return with you on the day you have your heat treatment.

  • You may have heard that someone got a bed bug heat treatment and bed bugs returned. This is because bed bugs are experts at running from the heat. That's why we use those bed bug dogs to help us isolate areas where bed bugs are nested, so that we can focus on those areas and corral these bugs.

If you're dealing with bed bugs, heat is definitely the way to get rid of them, but it can be complicated. Let our team of experts help you through the process and get those bugs fully eradicated the first time. Once is more than enough times to get bed bugs in one lifetime! Give us a call today and be bed bug free tomorrow.
