Frequently Asked Questions
What is heat treatment?
Heat treatment is a revolutionary and eco-friendly method that can safely eliminate larvae, eggs, and adults of many insect species without damaging your possessions in any way. It is extremely effective against a wide variety of insect infestations, for instance, bed bugs, fleas, moths, cockroaches, book lice, woodworm, silverfish, ladybirds, and spiders.
How much does heat treatment cost?
In order to calculate the price of the bed bug heat treatment service, we will first need to carry out a preliminary survey. Note that our service is insured against all damages and comes with a three-month guarantee for your peace of mind.
How does heat treatment work?
Most insects are not able to endure hot temperatures so that's what we'll use against them. A certified pest controller will heat up the affected area up to 56°C, drying out the pests and killing them in a matter of hours. The procedure is super effective and can deal with even the most severe of insect infestations.
Why is it so effective against bed bugs?
Bed bugs have been known to develop insecticide resistance pretty quickly which is why the demand for a more efficient method has been rising. The heat treatment is able to destroy the entire bed bug population in just a single procedure and is effective even against more developed problems.
Why is the success rate of heat treatment better than the regular chemical treatment?
Sometimes the insect presence at a property can become resistant to the traditional means of pest control, especially if you've attempted to DIY the pest control. However, with our heat treatment, there is a 100% guarantee of complete pest eradication because chemicals aren't the essence of the procedure. And since no chemicals are used, people sensitive to ingredients in insecticides won’t be exposed to potentially dangerous substances.
Is heat treatment safe?
Yes, however all clothes, books, electronics and other delicate items should be removed from the treated room before the start of your session as they may sustain damage from the high temperatures. You will receive detailed instructions onse your property gets surveyed.
Can I be in the house during the heat treatment?
Each room is treated separately and you can not be present as the temperature reaches unbearable degrees. You will be able to return as soon as we finish treating your home or business.
What if we only have a problem in one room?
We recommend complete treatment of the property as pest infestations are known to spread quickly and you never know how they came about in the first place. It's best to be safe and to have the rooms treated.
