Our Heat Treatment Method
Why Use Heat?
Heat treatment for bed bugs is the most effective way to eliminate an infestation of any size. Bed bugs do not go away on their own. Chemicals can spread them to other areas and make things worse. Our heat treatment method rises temperatures to surpass 120F very quickly stopping bugs in their tracks. Once ambient, the heat treatment continues between 3 and 6 hours to ensure all life stages have resulted in death.
Green Thermal Solutions uses the most modern and effective equipment available today. The Heat Assault 500x is such a sophisticated piece of equipment that it is designed to penetrate walls, baseboards, furniture, bed frames and get into unreachable places that bed bugs like to hide in. Once the Heat Assault is running full tilt, the temperatures are monitored by our experienced and licensed technicians on site to ensure even heat distribution. We provide our clients with a very detailed preparation list that is completed prior to treatment day. Some examples are to simply move furniture away from the wall and de-clutter the area. This provides enough space for the heat to move freely around all items to have every side heat treated. We guarantee you can return to a bug free home, same day.
Bed bugs are ranked one of the most challenging insects to get rid of.
Recently, bed bugs have become more resistant to pesticides that are commonly used to eradicate.
Heat treatment is the safest and most cost effective method for remediation.
Bed bugs cannot survive temperatures that exceed 120F for any length of time.
Heat treatment for bed bugs is the “Green” way to go, say no to chemicals.
At Green Thermal Solutions we value discretion. We do not use marked vehicles or clothing with any logos. Once inside, our technician would ask a series of questions along with a full home inspection to assess the nature of the infestation. Once properly identified, we would immediately implement your integrated pest management plan and begin the plan of action.
We take the time to answer any questions you may have about the nature of the infestation, preventative measures and steps that need to be taken to properly and professionally remove all bed bugs, nymphs and eggs from the home.
Once a treatment date has been established, we will provide you with all the documents and checklists necessary to ensure that you get the most out of your treatment plan. We’re always available by phone should you have any questions prior to the start of your treatment. If you require any additional help moving some of your bulkier items, or if you don’t have the time to do so, we can provide you with additional bed bug pre-treatment preparation as well as aftercare services.
On treatment day, we will arrive in our unmarked and discreet vehicles. We can place our equipment and begin pumping heat in less than an hour. If you have concerns about what your neighbours might ask, we’ve got that covered too. Green Thermal Solutions has an answer for them, relayed in a polite and courteous manner, but we won’t disclose the true nature of our visit. We value your privacy. Once all treatment areas have reached the “kill zone” temperature for the time required to eliminate all stages of bed bugs we will load up our equipment and make our departure. Other than returning to a very warm house, it will seem as if we were never there. Heat treatment leaves behind no smells, chemicals or anything else that could be harmful. When you retire to your beds that evening it will be like the bed bugs were never there.
This is all covered by Green Thermal Solutions “One and Done” 90 Day Guarantee.
