When an exterminator has visited your home you might be relieved but there are some things to take care of when s/he treated your property for bed bugs. It is important to give the treated rooms some time before entering them. Some people who might be immune-compromised might have to consult their physician to do some risk assessment due to the formulations used during the treatment. The technician will tell you what and what not to do. When rooms are treated it is generally a rule of thumb not to enter these rooms for at least a couple of hours. Important is to open all windows and all doors to let the air circulate throughout the house. An important step to undertake is to vacuum clean all the flooring and the carpets for the next 3-4 days to ensure that you are capturing all the bed bugs. Remember you can see bed bugs on wood after the treatment. Do not miss any surfaces underneath furniture and under your bed. To make sure your bed bugs stay away, hire the technicians.
The next step is quite critical, you need to wipe all the surfaces down with warm water and soap. You might see some translucent bed bug sheddings here and there. It’s important that you know how to recognize them. Including the tabletop, the sink, and the oven area. It is very important that you go through your cabinets and pantry and every other space since food is stored inside. It is very important that you vacuum and mop the floors regularly to limit their access and the reoccurrence that they will come again.
When you happen to see bed bugs anytime make sure to contact your technicians on time. They might have to do another treatment again. It is important that you do not wait.
