Thermal Remediation

Bed Bug Removal

Thermal remediation (heat treatment) is performed by heating the entire interior of a home or structure to a temperature of 135 – 145 degrees Fahrenheit (causing no damage to the home) for a specified period of time. This is accomplished by placing industrial heaters outside the building forcing heated air through duct-work placed within the home which is then circulated with high velocity fans to reach every nook & cranny.

Why Heat Treatment Is Better

  • One heat treatment is all it takes to kill all stages of Bed Bugs form egg to adult – pesticide applications require multiple visits.
  • Thermal remediation is a green, environmentally friendly treatment as no pesticides are applied, no toxic fumes and no residue – traditional treatments require pesticides be applied to mattresses, box springs, bed frames and all other cracks & crevices in bedrooms and infested areas.
  • There is limited preparation required as heat will penetrate clutter, clothing and furniture – pesticide treatments require extensive prep and laundering. Moreover, chemicals will not penetrate all areas that heat will.
  • After a heat treatment the bed bugs and eggs are dead – this is not the case with a pesticide treatment.
  • Heat treatment is the perfect application for heavy infestations, sensitive areas and anyone wishing to keep pesticides out of their home.
