In order for a pest control company to effectively treat your home or apartment, it must be prepared accordingly. Unfortunately, the preparation process can be a stressful and time-consuming process; but that’s where Pest Prep NYC thrives. By using our bed bug treatment preparation services, you will allow the exterminator to treat areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. The following is our thorough process:

 

Stripping Beds

  • Steam Sanitizing of mattress, box spring, covers, sheets, and pillowcases.

Dismantling

  • We will dismantle your bed, separating the headboard and footboard from the bed frame. This allows the exterminator to thoroughly treat the structure of your bed.

Emptying

  • Pest Prep NYC will empty dressers, wall units, book shelves, night stands, and other furniture; contents will be steam sanitized, bagged, sealed, and placed in the middle of the room. Any items situated on the floor such as clothing, toys, clutter, etc. will also be steam sanitized, bagged and sealed.
  • All pictures hanging on the wall will be vacuumed, sanitized, and wrapped.

Vacuuming Bed Bugs

  • Using a high power HEPA MITE vacuum designed for insects, we will vacuum all box springs, mattresses, bed frames, nightstands, tables, chairs, couches, baseboards, rugs, and pictures.

Steaming Bed Bugs & Eggs

  • Special dry vapour steamers are used to kill any bed bug eggs, bed bug nymphs, and adult bed bugs that were not captured by the vacuum.

Laundry

  • Garment Steaming Service
    Let us sanitize your garments using garment steamers, we’ll apply steam over 240 degrees Fahrenheit to your clothes. Leather and suede are processed in heating devices
    .
  •  
  • Laundry will be removed from closets and dressers, sorting whites from darks, and placed into clear plastic bags. Sealed laundry bags will be placed in the center of the room, out of the exterminators way. 

Perimeter Preparation

  • We will move couches, wall units, beds, dressers, end tables, nightstands, and all other obstructions three feet from the wall to make the perimiter areas accessible for the exterminator.

Electrical Outlet Preparation

  • Face plates on electrical switches and outlets will be removed so they are ready for the pesticide dust to be applied by the exterminator.
