Bed Bugs: Removal Preparation Checklist

  • Remove all linens from each bed in the home, not just the active room(s). Put all linens into bags and ensure there are no items left under or around the beds.
  • Remove everything from the dresser drawers and place all of the clothing into bags.
  • Place any clothing that is below waist level or on the floor into seperate bags.
  • Hanging clothes and non-clothing items in the closet(s) can be left where they are.
  • All of the bagged items are to be placed in the dryer on the highest heat they can safely handle for at least 40 minutes. This can be done before or after the initial treatment. The items CANNOT GO BACK INTO THE DRESSER DRAWERS UNTIL AFTER THE SECOND SERVICE.
  • Please clear out all bedside tables and end tables, exposing the drawer. Bookcases, china cabinets, shelving etc. do not need to be touched. Our technicians have equipment and machines to treat around these areas without disturbing them.
  • Unplug electronics and have the faceplates removed from the electrical outlets and light switches.
  • No preparation is needed in the kitchen.
  • Vacuum all floor areas prior to treatment. Discard vacuum bag or rinse out immediately afterwards.
  • Fish tanks need to be unplugged and a towel put over top for the duration of treatment.

If you have any questions regarding the preparation, please call or email our office for details and clarification
