Hotels, hospitals, homes, and businesses of all sorts have been hit by the bed bug menace, with many of them being forced to close down for extended periods of time. Expensive and inefficient building-wide fumigation is often considered to be the only way of dealing with the problem.
However, did you know that it has a marginal success rate? The truth is that building-wide fumigation for bed bugs requires three times as much pesticide as fumigating for other pests, such as termites and ants, in order to be effective, and the pesticide needs to completely saturate the building in order to kill all of the bed bugs. Otherwise, the bed bugs have places to hide until the residue comes off the walls and they are able to infest the building yet again.
Don’t give the bed bugs anywhere to hide! Environmental Heat Solutions is a premier provider of one of the few solutions which has been known to consistently work the first time, and it does so using no chemicals. We use Thermal Remediation® bed bug heat solutions in order to kill all stages of bed bug in your home. While traditional, chemical-based fumigation can keep you out of your home or place of business for days, even weeks, a Thermal Remediation® solution can have you back in your building within 24 hours.
First, the lack of chemicals means that we do not have to wait for pesticide mists to settle. These mists, if inhaled by a human or an animal, can adversely affect health. That’s why, even though there is no work being done by the company, you’re not allowed back in the building. However, there is another reason: A Thermal Remediation® treatment, from setup to tear-down, takes less labor time than most fumigation services. A full fumigation can itself be labor-intensive, while our heat treatments can be done within a day’s time.
Thermal Remediation® treatments work by elevating the internal temperature of your building to between 120 and 140 degrees Fahrenheit for several hours. Bed bugs and other pests cannot survive such a drastic extreme in heat, and all stages of bed bug will be destroyed within a matter of minutes of constant exposure.
We set up high-powered heaters in strategic places throughout your building, along with fans to move the hot air around and push it into every crack and crevice of the building. The goal is to elevate the entire building’s temperature to no less than this key temperature of 120 degrees Fahrenheit, so that the bed bugs have nowhere to hide. This is how, within a day, we are able to completely eradicate all of the bed bugs from your home.
Don’t believe us? No problem! We staff a team of bed bug detection canines who can test your home for the presence of bed bugs before and after your treatment. If you aren’t sure whether or not you have bed bugs, our canine detection team can rule the possibility out of your mind, or eliminate an infestation before it has the opportunity to take full hold.
