Will Carpet Cleaning Get Rid Of Bed Bugs?
This is a common question that we get. Will a professional carpet cleaning get rid of bed bugs in your house? We get this question more these days because of the increasing occurrences of bed bug infestations. Yes, unfortunately these little buggers are making a comeback. So what is the answer.
Unfortunately, the answer is No, it will not. Carpet cleaners are not pest control services and a simple carpet cleaning, even if you use very hot steam cleaning will probably not cure your bed bug problem. This is because these little pests are masters at hiding. They will find cracks and crevices that will shield then from the hot steam.
To get rid of bed bugs, you need to contact a licensed pest control company who can discuss your options. This could be pesticide based treatments or one of the newer heat treatments where they bring the entire temperature of your home up to kill the pests. Only a pest control company can solve your problem.
Of course, this will cost a good deal of money. If you want to eliminate the problem yourself, you can try a product such as Bed Bug Killer, by Eco Defense. It is available on Amazon and costs a fraction of what a pest control company would charge you.
