Bedbugs can be extremely concerning, and they can also be a threat to your health. If you recently discovered bed bugs in your home, you need to call a professional pest control company as soon as possible. The pest professionals will come out and treat your home or apartment to rid your space of these nasty invaders. Before your treatment appointment, there are a few important things you should to in order to prepare your home.
Prep the Bed
First, you’ll to remove anything underneath the bed including shoes, plastic bins, and trash. Anything hiding under your bed will give the bedbugs a place to hide out, and even worse, multiply. Don’t take the items that were under your bed and move them to another room, or you could spread the infestation to other areas of the home. Instead, just move them to one corner until the pest control company can inspect them. In the future, it’s best to leave the area under your bed clear.
Just like you removed everything from under your bed, you’ll need to take everything out of the closets. Remove anything that is sitting on the floor, and you’ll also need to remove shoes, hanging clothes, and anything stored on shelves. Again, don’t take these items into another room. Simply place everything in one location until the technician can take a closer look to confirm there are no bugs hiding in your clothing or shoes.
Clear the Clutter
Clutter, in general, offers a variety of pests plenty of places where they can hide and reproduce. Whether you’re prepping for bedbug treatment or just cleaning up, now is a good time to start clearing out the clutter in your home. Pick up any clothing that’s laying on the floor. Remove all trash and dispose of it in a sealed garbage bag and take it outside. If you find a few things you’d rather store, don’t place them in a storage unit until the pest control company confirms that it’s safe to do so. After your treatment, remember to keep your home clean and as free of clutter as possible.
These easy cleaning tips will ensure that your bedbug treatment goes smoothly and efficiently. It also makes things much easier for the pest control company since they’ll have clear access to the areas of your home where the bedbugs are hiding.
