What is it?

The steam treatment in our eco-friendly service range uses steam to kill bed bugs. Bed bugs have a lethal temperature at and beyond which they cannot survive. The steam is hot enough to kill the bed bugs which it comes in contact with in any surface area. It can also permeate a certain amount of depth into fabrics and can also be used to clean any gaps, cracks or crevices in wooden surfaces.

Importance of Steam Treatment

Bed bugs are not killed instantly by commercial sprays. These sprays take around 15-21 days to diminish the bulk of the bed bugs being treated. Moreover, the bed bugs develop immunity against these chemicals due to which these methods can prove to be ineffective. Steam treatment is important as it is not only a safer method but also an effective one. There is no way the bed bugs can develop immunity against this method.
