Basic Myths

Most of us haven’t worried about bed bugs removal for many years -actually since World War II- because of the pesticide known as DDT, which eliminated bed bugs as a side effect to its main usage. However, since DDT was banned, bed bugs are making a resurgence.

Some homeowners have been led to believe that simple bed bugs treatment would be cleaning. They incorrectly assume that by cleaning more thoroughly, they can eliminate these pasts. Others also believe that bed bugs steam cleaning processes will remove them from their home. While those are important steps, these blood sucking insects hide in hard to reach places during the day, so in order to get rid of these bugs, steam cleaning is only part of the process.

Where Bed Bugs Hide

Bed bugs hide in a number of places, such as:
• Carpeting
• Mattresses
• Walls
• Furniture, including couches and recliners
• Clothing

Picking up someone’s used furniture is one of the most common ways that people unwittingly introduce bed bugs to their home. They can also be carried in on clothing, from secondhand stores or even guests you invite into your New York home.

Natural Treatment for Bed Bugs

While harsh chemicals can be effective for getting rid of bed bugs, you’ll still need steam cleaning to remove the toxic chemicals from your mattresses and carpeting. At NYCleaners, we believe in a more natural approach, heating bed bugs has proven highly effective. Bed bugs cannot survive for long when exposed to heat over 113-degrees Fahrenheit. If the temperature is raised two more degrees, eggs and all forms of bed bugs can be effectively killed throughout your problem zones.
