Free Bed Bug Inspection and Thorough Property Assessment

Before commencing any treatment, our skilled technicians conduct a comprehensive, no-obligation bed bug inspection of your Richmond Hill property. This meticulous examination allows us to identify infested areas and determine the most effective course of action to eliminate these pests.

Preparation and Heat Treatment Process

Step 1: Preparing Your Home for Treatment

To ensure the highest success rate, our team guides you through the necessary preparations for the heat treatment. This includes removing any heat-sensitive items and ensuring optimal airflow for efficient heat distribution.

Step 2: Equipment Setup and Vacuuming

Our exterminators set up advanced heaters and fans, strategically positioning them to target infested areas. Following this, we thoroughly vacuum your property to remove bed bugs, eggs, and any debris that could hinder the treatment’s effectiveness.

Step 3: Temperature Monitoring and Heat Treatment

We gradually raise the temperature within your property to 140°F, a level lethal to bed bugs and their eggs. Our team closely monitors the temperature every 30 minutes for at least 6 hours, ensuring even heat distribution and complete extermination.

Step 4: Cooling Down and Room Rearrangement

Once the heat treatment is complete, we cool down your property and assist in rearranging your rooms to their original layout. Our exterminators pay close attention to every detail, guaranteeing that your home is free of bed bugs.

Step 5: Two-Week Follow-Up

Our commitment to your satisfaction extends beyond the initial treatment. We conduct a follow-up inspection two weeks after the heat treatment to ensure the complete eradication of bed bugs and provide any additional guidance as needed.
