Spring 2024: Bed Bug Preventative Cleaning and Protection

Spring 2024: Bed Bug Preventative Cleaning and Protection

Spring Cleaning Made Easy with Amcan!

As winter fades away and spring blossoms, it's not just the landscape that undergoes a transformation. Our homes, particularly our bedrooms, become a battleground against pesky invaders like bed bugs, dust mites, and allergens. Spring cleaning presents an excellent opportunity to not only freshen up your living space but also to detect bed bugs and combat dust allergens effectively. Follow these steps to ensure you are bed bug safe:

Deep Clean Bedding and Upholstery
Wash all bedding, including sheets, pillowcases, and mattress covers, in hot water (at least 60°C or 140°F) to kill dust mites and bed bugs. Vacuum mattresses, box springs, and upholstered furniture thoroughly, paying close attention to seams, tufts, and folds where bed bugs often hide.
Inspect and Seal Mattresses and Box Springs
Use mattress encasements and box spring encasements to seal bed bugs inside and prevent new infestations. Ensure that the encasements are tear-resistant and have tight zipper closures to effectively trap bed bugs.
Declutter and Organize
Reduce clutter in your home, as it provides hiding spots for bed bugs and dust mites. Dispose of unnecessary items, especially in bedrooms and living areas, and organize belongings in sealed containers to minimize hiding places.
Clean and Dust Thoroughly
Dust surfaces, shelves, and baseboards using a damp cloth or microfiber cloth to capture dust and allergens effectively. Pay attention to areas where dust tends to accumulate, such as behind furniture, under beds, and in corners.
Vacuum Regularly
Vacuum carpets, rugs, and upholstered furniture frequently to remove dust, pet dander, and debris. Use a vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter to trap small particles and allergens, preventing them from being redistributed into the air.
Steam Clean
Consider using a steam cleaner on carpets, rugs, and upholstery to kill dust mites, bed bugs, and their eggs effectively. Steam penetrates deep into fabrics and surfaces, eliminating allergens and pests without the need for chemicals.
Inspect and Seal Cracks and Gaps
Inspect walls, baseboards, electrical outlets, and furniture for cracks and gaps where bed bugs may hide or enter your home. Seal any openings with caulk or sealant to prevent bed bugs from gaining access to your living space.
Monitor for Signs of Infestation
Keep an eye out for signs of bed bugs, such as live bugs, shed skins, fecal stains, or blood spots on bedding and furniture. If you suspect an infestation, contact a pest control professional for thorough inspection and treatment.
