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

  • It is of paramount importance to strip bed down to raw mattress and box spring. Without doing this your exterminator will not be able to apply pesticides to area correctly.

Dismantling

  • We will dismantle your bed when necessary, separating the headboard and foot board from the bed frame. This allows the exterminator to thoroughly treat the structure of your bed. This is done more so for intricate and elaborate beds. simple frames can be treated as is. Either way we have you covered!  

Emptying

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

  • All pictures hanging on the wall will be vacuumed, sanitized, and wrapped. All artwork will be secured and wrapped once deemed bug free. This process is very similar to the way your art would be curated at a gallery or art storage facility.

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.

Thermal heat sanitizing of  live Bed Bugs & Eggs

  • Laundry will be removed from closets and dressers, processed by our techs individually, then coupled together with similar items, wrapped and heated again, before we vacuum seal and color code for easy put back once this nightmare is over.  
  • Your children's plush toys and books will be protected by us as well.

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 perimeter 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.
