Extermination Preparation


  • Prior to extermination, remove all bedding from mattresses, gather all linens, clothing, etc. from closets and dressers. Put them in the dryer for 20 mins on high heat. (Exceptions to prep are handled on a cause by cause basis and will be discussed at time of appointment booking)

  • Nothing can be under the bed, or on the closet floors.

  • Declutter the house as much as possible.

  • Vacuum entire house including under the bed and closets. 

  • Empty wooden bookshelves, desks, dressers, nightstands etc., and remove drawers if possible. Bedbugs can and will seek refuge between the boards of wooden furniture. 

  • Be sure to follow the post - extermination instructions we give you. Success depends on you and your willingness to cooperate and follow directions, even if it means to get rid of your furniture in extreme cases. You cannot be too thorough.

Yes, it is annoying and time consuming to prepare, but it is best to do it right the first time and avoid voiding your warranty should the extermination fail because the space was not prepared!
