Heat treatment can be used against bed bugs, fleas, cockroaches, woodworms, silverfish and more! Save your home and family from all the dangers an infestation might cause, such as:

How We Provide the Heat Treatment Service
We will send a specialist for a thorough survey of all affected areas in your property to check the type of pests and the level of infestation.
After the survey the technician will bring special heat treatment equipment. The heater maintains the room temperature at a constant 56°C and kills bugs instantly.
Upon request, as part of your guarantee, the same pro will arrive 2 weeks later for an after care inspection to confirm that all bed bugs or other insects are eradicated.
The professional will stay just a tad longer to provide you with handy tips on how to keep your home safe from potential future infestations.
