For your bed bug and pest control solution in Savannah, we seal the rooms being treated and then start the heat process. We have a wireless computer system that communicates with electronic temperature sensors which are placed in various areas of the rooms. We can then monitor the exact temperature of each sensor unit from outside or nearby.The rooms are heated to 130 to 135 degrees and sustained for many hours. Bed bugs can not survive temperatures above 122 degrees. The fans help distribute the heat  throughout the rooms/structure.

It is a one day process and we pay special attention to infested areas.
Bed Bugs are very frustrating insects to deal with. They love cloth and wood and therefore lay eggs in those type products. Taking care to make sure the clothing is properly treated is a very important part of the process.
Because of the one day process it is highly advantageous to Senior Citizen and Assisted Living Facilities because of sheer convenience
We do a lot of work for Apartments,Assisted Living,Nursing Homes,Dormitories and any Multi-family Housing.

After you have successfully treated your household from bed bug infestations, you might want to remember that the job is still not over yet. You need to make sure that these pests do not ever return again and for this, you will have to carry out a few necessary steps. First and foremost, you should wash the surfaces as well as the furniture in your home so as to make sure everything is cleaned up. Plus, if there were any damages caused to your property then you might also want to carry out a few physical repairs here and there to close up any openings where the bed bugs were hiding. Last but not least; the most important part would be to dispose off the infested items to make sure there isn’t a relapse. Your clothing should also all be carefully sealed in bags and taken to your local cleaners to be professionally cleaned to kill off any bed bugs that may be hiding in your clothing.

How To Kill Bed Bugs Guide

If you do not wish to hire a bed bug exterminator and would like to take matters into your own hands, here are some things you can do by yourself at home or at your business to help with your bed bug infestation:

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
1. Get rid of furniture and other infested items (Not Recommended if using a Heat Treatment)
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
One way of dealing with bed bugs is getting rid of furniture, mattresses, curtains, clothes and other clutter that has been badly infested by bed bugs. In turn, the entire home can be fumigated and new furniture and other items brought in. This method by itself will not ensure that your bed bug problem is solved and so other methods are required.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
2. Hot water cleaning and highest heat setting
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
In case you have been traveling and suspect that you are carrying bed bugs in your bags, ensure the luggage and any other bags have been vacuumed or professionally cleaned by your local dry cleaner. Make sure your linens and clothes are washed using the hottest water settings available before drying using the highest level of heat setting you can find for about 40-60 minutes. It is recommended to pack all your clothes into bags and take them to your local dry cleaners for expert treatment.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
3. Vacuuming
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
Vacuuming is the most effective DIY cleaning method for bed bug elimination. As the name suggests, you need a vacuum cleaner to get this job done. The vacuum cleaner needs to be powerful enough to suck in bed bugs from hard to reach places like outlets, under vents, bed and furniture crevices and should be equipped with HEPA (High-Efficiency Particulate Air) which will ensure small particles like bed bugs do not escape from the vacuum once they are vacuumed. Of course, a regular vacuum might also do the trick, but an HEPA-equipped one will make sure that bed bugs and their eggs are restricted from spreading out. You will also need a crevice tool along with the vacuum cleaner so as to ensure that small cracks and spaces are cleaned out precisely. A brush attachment will also come handy in reaching those hard to reach bed bugs.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
This process is quite easy and effective but needs to be done extensively and thoroughly to make sure all bed bugs are vacuumed. Remember, only 2 bed bugs are required to start spreading again, and if you don’t get rid of all of them, before you know it they are back full-force.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
4. Steam treatment
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
Steam treatment is a highly effective process, which can kill bed bugs at all life stages including bed bug eggs. If you believe the problem you are facing with bed bugs is a highly critical one (in case you noticed the problem once bed bug bites were becoming regular and extensive), then it is recommended that you call your local bed bug exterminator, however if you are still up for doing it yourself then you may want to invest in a steam cleaner to effectively attempt to deal with the issue at hand and make sure all bed bugs are completely removed off your property. Although it needs to be combined with a few other methods such as pesticides, steam is still an effective method on its own.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
You can clear out items such as plush furniture, including chairs and couches, and mattresses using steam. The only downside to this process is that it only kills the bugs that it can reach. Plus, keeping track of the contact time is also crucial for heat. It is recommended that you move the nozzle of the steam cleaner rather slowly so as to ensure time of exposure and depth are both maximum. This method should be repeated several times on all furniture, floors as well as any crevices where you suspect bed bugs are hiding.

5. Bed leg interceptors
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
Bed bugs do not really feed on a person when he or she is not asleep. They have a way of waiting for months or weeks until people are in bed and asleep before crawling out fast, feed and then return into their hiding area. They only feed between 10-15 minutes and enter the apartment or house by hitchhiking on bags, clothing, shoes and other items. In many cases, to bite a person, the bed bug leaves its hiding place, crawls along the floor before climbing up the bed leg to start sucking on human blood. While this happens often, breaking the cycle can help slow the bed bug infestation by making it harder for them to get to their human food source simply by buying good bed bed leg interceptors, inexpensive small devices that trap bed bugs and help warn you beforehand about an infestation and perhaps help control it before it is too late. However, bed leg interceptors by themselves will not solve your bedbug problem and in most cases professional bed bug exterminator is required to eliminate the problem for good.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
6. Bed bug proof mattress covers
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
It is important to clean infested items in your home and prevent them from becoming re-infested with bed bugs until the problem is eradicated. Bed bugs cannot survive steam and hot temperatures so wash your bed covers, linens, laundry hamper, and any fabric/material items you have that could harbor bed bugs on high heat. Dry on the hottest setting as well and be sure to store the newly cleaned items in sealed plastic bags or sealed storage containers. For small items that you cannot wash or are dry clean only, you should put them in your dryer on high heat for at least 30 minutes.
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E
7. Use of pesticides
{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aheading%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
By far, the usage of pesticides is indeed the best way to get rid of bed bugs. Pesticides are an effective tool for fighting off bed bugs. But it is recommended that you hire a professional pest exterminator like Clark Pest Remedy for this job as only qualified servicemen are capable of applying pesticides effectively so as to make sure that the bed bugs are killed off permanently and there are no chances of re-infestation or harm to humans and/or pets.

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
Bed bugs also migrate across vents and cracks from one flat to another in condos, apartment buildings and other residences. This means a building-wide pest control effort is highly vital. Rubbing alcohol, using kerosene and bug sprays sold over the counter are not only ineffective according to the experts,, but also fire hazards that could cause serious damage to a house and belongings.

{cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20%2Fwp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E {cke_protected}{C}%3C!%2D%2D%20wp%3Aparagraph%20%2D%2D%3E
If you do consider hiring a professional bed bug exterminator for your bed bug issue, you need to make sure to get a well-trained, experienced and fully licensed and insured company for it such as Clark Pest Remedy. The main point in this process that you should remember at all times is that usage of pesticides alone doesn’t guarantee the eradication of bed bugs. This is why you, or whoever you are consulting for the job, need to carry out several accompanying methods to complete the job.

At Clark Pest Remedy we will totally exterminate your bed bug problem and we will back it up with a 60 day warranty!
