When dealing with bed bugs today, there are a variety of treatment solutions available. To start, there are the traditional chemicals and pesticides that most homeowners are already familiar with. These methods have been used for years and have proven rather successful. There are also the heat treatments and the newer cryonite. Although cryonite is tried and tested in other parts of the world, it is just now gaining a foothold in the United States.
Despite all of this, it is the steam treatments that our techs would recommend above the competition. Want to find out why steam is potentially one of the most effective methods for battling bed bugs?
How Does Steam Treatment Kill Bed Bugs?
The first obvious question most consumers will ask is, “How can steam be used to kill bed bugs?” Well, you are probably familiar with heat treatments by now. Heat treatments typically involve bringing in specialized heating equipment and raising the temperature to 118 degrees F. The area is exposed to these temperatures for 90 minutes, killing out all bed bugs in the process.
Steam treatment works around a similar theory utilizing steam heat. Techs bring a portable vacuum system into the home that has a long hose and nozzle. The base of the tank is filled with water and converted into high-pressure/high-heat steam. Techs can direct the nozzle into specific areas and blow steam. This is somewhat similar to a traditional steam cleaner if you are familiar with those machines.
The beauty of the steam treatments is the fact that there is no transition period. The steam kills the bugs instantly on contact. Cryonite offers similar results but dealing with compressed chemicals that freeze on contact is potentially more dangerous for obvious reasons.
An Eco-Friendly Option
Yes, steam can reach hidden areas of the home that typical treatments can’t reach. Yes, our high-pressure/high-heat steam kills bugs on contact. However, those are not the main reasons we prefer these treatments. The main reason that we prefer steam to the other available methods is the fact that it is an eco-friendly option.
Steam treatments use nature’s greatest cleaner, water. It converts that water into a pressurized heat, but it is still chemical and odor-free. This is one of the biggest growing problems with traditional pesticides and chemicals. They are effective but have proven extremely harsh on the environment. Why do you think homes and treated areas must be evacuated for several hours during and after treatment? It’s because of the lingering effects.
Luckily, this is not the case with steam treatments. Although one could remain on the property while this treatment is performed, we always recommend evacuating. Now, this is not to say that there aren’t potential dangers with steam treatments. When dealing with a high-pressure/ high heat solution like this, there are always potential dangers, especially in untrained and unqualified hands. Exposing delicate materials to this steam or exposing certain items too long could prove extremely disastrous.
Therefore, it is always best to let a trained, qualified steam technician handle treatment. Give our local branch a call today and we’ll set up your free consultation immediately.
