Bed Bug Heat Treatment

  1. 1. Capital K9 Bed Bug Solutions Bed Bug Heat Treatment
  2. 2. Bed Bug Heat Treatment  At Capital K9, we use Pest Heat, which is one of the best, effective ways to completely get rid of bed bugs and their eggs – best of all, it works in just one easy treatment.  The science isn’t too complex, either: when bed bugs are exposed to temperatures exceeding 122 degrees Fahrenheit, the bugs die almost instantly. In fact, it only takes about one minute.
  3. 3. One Day, One Treatment  Our Pest Heat treatment is a one day, one treatment solution for your bed bug issues. Leave your home to us in the morning and come home from work in the evening no longer having to worry about bed bugs.  Alternatively, chemical bed bug treatments are generally two or three treatments over the course of several weeks – that’s a lot of time to worry about bed bugs in your home.
  4. 4. It’s Effective  Our Pest Heat treatment is highly effective and works in the most difficult of situations. An advantage to heat is that it can get into the areas in your home that the chemicals simply cannot reach – such as inside mattresses, box springs, and sofas. Further, bed bugs do not have a resistance to heat, whereas some bed bugs have developed resistance against some chemicals.
  5. 5. Keep Your Belongings!  Our Pest Heat treatment allows you to keep your belongings. With some treatments, your belongings need to be thrown away – not with heat treatment!  Save money in the long run by not worrying about purchasing new belongings.
  6. 6. It’s Green  The Pest Heat process is completely green, which is particularly important to many people who have health concerns, small children or pets.  Most clients opt to include chemicals in the heat process (for no additional cost) for an additional layer of protection, but that decision is completely up to you.
  7. 7. No Need to Prepare  Our Pest Heat process involves a lot less preparation for you! Don’t feel the need to pre- wash all of your clothing and bedding, and while there is some preparation prior to the treatment (click here for our pretreatment checklist) it is minimal compared to other treatment options.
  8. 8. So How Does Heat Treatment Work?
  9. 9. The three components of a successful heat treatment are:  Heat Source: We use a Pest Heat TPE500. Our heater is kept completely outside of the structure and the heat is piped in using large Mylar tubes. Our process allows us to reach optimal temperatures quickly without drawing from your electricity, saving you money.  Movement of Air: We use specially designed high-speed fans to circulate the air in your home. The flow of air creates convection heat, which allows us to achieve and maintain optimal temperatures.  Monitoring of Temperatures: We place temperature probes throughout the home and use a software program that allows us to continually track the temperatures. This data is recorded and continually reviewed to ensure that we met and maintained proper temperatures during the heat treatment.
  10. 10. How much does a heat treatment cost?  Every job is different and the cost for the job depends on the size of the home, the level of infestation and whether we will be able to effectively move air in the home. The best way to get an exact price is to have a technician come out and give you a free estimate. We will do all we can to make this cost-effective for your family.  Additionally, we offer financing to make this service fit within most budgets.
  11. 11. Warranty Information  We offer one of the best warranties in the industry. We warrant our work for three whole months from the date of the heat treatment. We will also come back to your home a few weeks after a heat treatment with one of our bed bug detection dogs. If the dog detects the presence of bed bugs or if you have seen a bed bug following a heat treatment, we will retreat at our expense.
