How To Protect Your Mattresses, Box Springs And Pillows From Bed Bugs

The best way to protect your box springs, mattresses and pillows from bed bugs is with encasement. These products are designed out of vinyl material and fit completely over the bedding. The encasement is equipped with a durable zipper, so it you can seal it completely off from bed bugs.

Chemical Sprays

chemical sprays aren’t nearly as effective as they used to be. Bedbugs have developed a more protective shield allowing them to survive several treatments. In order to effectively eliminate bedbugs with chemical sprays, the professional exterminator will need to spray the home several times. At the same time, it is vital to understand that chemical sprays can be dangerous to your health. They may harm you, your family members and your pets. Therefore, you’ll need to remain outside of the home for a lengthy period of time.It is best to avoid sprays unless they’re your only option.

Cryonite

You can choose freezing or cryonite. Cryonite can kill the bugs and eggs with direct contact. This chemical-free solution is really safe for everyone involved. Freezing is not going to penetrate the materials in your home and there will be residual effects. Therefore, you won’t have to worry about your property being damaged. The only downside is that cryonite is very similar to steam. To be effective, both have to make direct contact with the pest. Having a professional carry out the treatment can make a difference.

Steam

Steam is another chemical-free solution for killing bedbugs and their eggs. Steam works great, but it does have a few minor flaws. First and foremost, you have to worry about the moisture left behind. If the moisture is not handled properly, there is a chance that it is going to ruin some of your belongings. Also, the steam has to make direct contact with the bug and the egg. Therefore, its effectiveness can be questionable. Still, steam will prove to be safer than chemicals.
