flathead screwdriver five to ten garbage bags a pen or pencil to mark off items
from the checklist starting in the bedroom will first remove any television
sets from the wall units and unplug all electronic items like clock radios and
lamps remove all electrical wall plates phone jack plates and light switch
covers remove paintings and mirrors from the wall and place them in one corner of
the bedroom remove the front panel from the heating and air conditioning units
if in close proximity to the bed also remove all vent covers from your forced
air system for proper treatment all these items should remain in the bedroom
area make sure the laundry machine is empty of any previous wash before we
start the laundering procedure remove all your bedding and pillows and place
them in the garbage bags note articles under the beds provide an ideal place
for bed bugs to hide all clothing or garments loose around the room must be
bagged and laundered all other objects that were previously stored under the
bed should not be moved as bed bugs may be relocated into other areas of the
structure at this time all clothing should now be in securely tied garbage
bags and ready to be taken to the laundry room make sure to bring only one
bag at a time to the laundry room and place the clothing directly into the
washing machine and not to load more than 50% of the machine’s capacity it’s
necessary that all garments be laundered in hot water the temperature should
reach over 60 degrees centigrade or 140 degrees Fahrenheit or you may also use
the dryer on the highest setting for a minimum of 30 minutes reaching
temperatures of over 40 degrees centigrade
or 104 degrees Fahrenheit the dryer must be capable of reaching a temperature of
over 40 degrees centigrade to kill all stages make sure to immediately discard
all empty garbage bags used to transport the clothing into an exterior garbage
receptacle note all laundered items must remain out of the treatment area during
service clothing and fabrics associated with beds or sofas cannot be treated
with pesticides due to the prolonged contact with skin it’s for this reason
that this step is crucial and necessary to ensure the treatment program does not
fail with the reintroduction of bedbugs to the laundered items let’s go back to
the bedroom to vacuum the floor and rug extensively please make sure to remove
the vacuum bag immediately and discard in an exterior garbage receptacle pry
baseboards away from the walls where possible or when instructed by the able
service technician during the service it’s necessary for you and your pets to
vacate the premises and not to re-enter until at least four hours after the
treatment persons with underlying health conditions should consult their family
physician where they have concerns regarding re-entry time fish aquariums
may be left on site however they should be covered and air filters must be
disconnected for the duration of the treatment please make sure to read the
