Are you experiencing bites at night time and are moving out of your rented property soon? Or perhaps you are a landlord left with rusty looking stains on your mattress? Bed bugs are tiny, little bugs that feed on blood! They love the smell of dirty bedding, laundry, or furniture because they can smell the blood, dead skin and sweat from humans on these items. This is why it is important to wash your bedding often – we recommend leaving your bedding on no longer than 2 weeks at a time. An individual bed bug can live 4 to 6 months and each female will lay between 1 and 5 eggs each day, with a total of up to 250 in one lifetime! They lay their eggs in small cracks and crannies in our beds and upholstery. Unfortunately for us, their bites can cause many health issues from itching and painful swelling to anaphylaxis (in very rare cases) and the long term affects can even include anxiety and insomnia.
Thankfully, here at Premium Clean, we can get rid of your bed bugs for good. We have highly trained and qualified staff. Usually, the most efficient way to get rid of these nasty critters is steam cleaning as they cannot survive that heat. Squeezing bed bugs to kill them can actually make your bed bug infestation worse, so please try to avoid doing this and the shop bought sprays will only kill the bugs that are on the top of the mattress, not the ones that have buried themselves into the crevices.
The first step we do to remove these insects when steam cleaning, is to vacuum the mattress or upholstery with our professional SEBO Automatic X7 ePower 91501GB Upright Vacuum Cleaner which suck up a lot of the bugs that are on or near the surface and will also remove the dust and stray hairs. The next step is to apply the steam with a professional steam cleaner that is fitted with a special mattress tool. We will do both sides and all edges of the mattress, and the mattress should dry within a few hours and will then be ready to be dressed. We highly recommend that if you do have a bed bug infestation that you get the mattress, carpets and sofa steam cleaned as bed bugs can travel from one place to another.
There are also other methods we can use to get rid of the bedbugs and we will assess the level of infestation to advise you on the best way. Please call Premium Clean today and we can come out to you asap to get rid of these nasty bugs from your house or your flat asap. We have a friendly team waiting to help you with bed bugs or any other of your cleaning needs.
