In: Bed Bug Heat Treatments

So you discovered that you have bed bugs. You are absolutely mortified, and the only thing on your mind is how to get rid of them – and fast! Here at McCall Service we understand the trauma that comes with a bed bug infestation, and let us assure you, you are not the only one! Bed bug infestation has actually been on the rise, particularly over the past decade, partly due to government regulations and partly due to their ability to resist the chemicals that were once used to treat them. Either way, the outcome is the same. This bug that was once almost extinct in U.S. cities is now undergoing a major comeback with the number of new infestations soaring.

Fortunately, we have a great new discovery in our battle against bed bugs! Heat! That’s right – heat! It seems that bed bugs cannot survive in sustained temperatures of 120 degrees, and neither can their eggs! This has led to the innovation and use of heat to destroy these pests discreetly and effectively. However, this technique, when used by a novice, can be dangerous and carries the risk of fire. This is why it is best to leave it up to the trained professionals here at McCall!

So what exactly should you expect from a heat treatment? 100% eradication of bed bugs is exactly what you can expect. Plus, you don’t have to do a whole lot to get ready for us. We will walk you through the entire process – including the basic preparations that will need to be accomplished like pulling furniture away from walls and putting flammable aerosol cans into a box next to the front door. In most cases, we will have your bed bug issue under control within one to two days. That’s a whole lot faster than the several days it takes for other treatment options. Our specialized mobile heating units will maintain a constant air temperature of at least 120 degrees in order to kill all the stages of these pesky insects. Obviously, while this treatment is operational, you will need to spend the day away from your home, but that is a small price to pay for discreet, effective treatment of your infestation!

When you call on the highly trained and vetted professionals here at McCall Service, you are calling on the best! We will inspect your property to be sure it is bed bugs that are your problem and discuss the appropriate plan of attack with you which may include: heat, chemical, steam, and HEPA vacuum techniques or a combination of these. No matter which treatment plan best suits your situation, you can count on fast, effective, safe elimination of bed bugs.

So don’t try to fight your bed bug battle alone. Give McCall a call. You will be glad you did.
