Room Prep

You must prep your room for treatment.  Move all furniture and other items 6 inches away from the wall. Doing so allows for proper airflow.  Remove oil paintings from the room and place the objects in the bathroom or in an area not being treated.  You will need to treat the paintings before returning them to the treated room.  Be careful not to introduce bed bugs into an uncontaminated area.  Remove all electrical faceplates in the room.    Unplug electrical equipment.  Remove unnecessary clutter in the room. Vacuum if possible. Situate items in the room to allow proper airflow.  


Heat Treat the Room

The room temperature must reach a minimum of 114 degrees before you start timing the treatment.  It is recommended that you start timing the treatment after the room temperature reaches 120 degrees.  Treat the room for a minimum of 4 hours. 


Spray ( Optional)

It is a good idea to spray infected areas with an insecticide after conducting a heat treatment.  There are many sprays that you can purchase.  The purpose of the spray is to provide residual protection.
