More than Just Bed Bugs
Heat is not just for bed bugs! Every living organism has a thermal death point, not only insects but bacteria and allergens as well. Keep your family safe and your environment fresh with heat from the Florida Bed Bug Experts. Take a look at these five benefits of heat treating your home.
ELIMINATE INDOOR ODORS
Heat can freshen the air in your home by denaturing many allergens and destroying the chemical basis of many odors.
HELP KEEP YOUR HOME ALLERGY FREE
The most common source of indoor allergens is the dust mite. Feeding off household dust and moisture, they can exacerbate allergic rhinitis, asthma, and eczema. Dust mites are killed after 60 minutes at 140°F (House Dust Mites, University of Nebraska, Bug Facts 013-97).
DRY OUT AFTER A FLOOD OR HURRICANE
House floods can devastate a structure with water permeating structural beams leading to dangerous mold and destructive wood rot. Regardless of a flood source—anything from an overflowing toilet to an overflowing river or storm surge— heat treating after a flood can help dry the structure and kill accompanying microbes.
PROTECT AGAINST DISEASES LEFT BEHIND AFTER A RODENT INVASION
Rodents have a way of sneaking into your home. Although your pest control company can kill, trap, and seal in order to get rid of your invaders, they often fall short in eliminating the dangerous diseases these pests leave behind. The thermal process eradicates hantavirus and other health hazards in less than a few hours.
KILL ALL YOUR INSECT INVADERS
When applied correctly, a heat treatment eliminates bed bugs, but also other common household pests like cockroaches, termites, and fleas. You don’t have to rely on toxic chemicals to create a bug-free home!
Heat technology is effective against all forms of insect pests, but we have found it to be equally effective against problem-causing allergens and bacteria as well. Give the Florida Bed Bug Experts a call at (813) 922-8475. We are ready to help or consult with any unique applications!
