Bed Bug Treatment Preparation

Benefits Of Preparing For Bed Bug Treatment

The war on bed bugs can be a costly, stressful, and time-consuming battle. Due to the resurgence of bed bugs in Toronto and the GTA, we need to take extreme action today. Through extensive experience in the pest control industry, we know that preparation for bed bug treatment is the first line of defense towards successful bed bug eradication. When your home/apartment is not properly prepared for the exterminator, it reduces the effectiveness of the treatment by up to 80%. When the job is not done right the first time, it ends up costing home owners/landlords even more money in the long run.

Not only is our bed bug treatment preparation service significant to winning the war on bed bugs, it is beneficial to tenants, homeowners, landlords, and the pest control company performing your treatment. Here are the benefits:

  • Reduces the frequency of follow-up bed bug treatments and saves valuable time and money in the long run.

In order for a pest control company to effectively treat your home or apartment, it must be prepared accordingly. Unfortunately, the preparation process can be a stressful and time-consuming process; but that’s where Extreme Cleanup thrives. By using our bed bug treatment preparation services, you will allow the exterminator to treat areas that would otherwise be inaccessible. The following is our thorough process:

Stripping Beds

  • Removal of covers, sheets, and pillowcases into bags ready to be laundered.


  • We will dismantle your bed, separating the headboard and footboard from the bed frame. This allows the exterminator to thoroughly treat the structure of your bed.


  • Extreme Cleanup will empty dressers, wall units, book shelves, night stands, and other bedroom furniture; contents will be bagged, sealed, and placed in the middle of the room. Any items situated on the floor such as clothing, toys, clutter, etc. will also be bagged and sealed.
  • All pictures hanging on the wall will be vacuumed and bagged.

Vacuuming Bed Bugs

  • Using a high power HEPA vacuum designed for insects, we will vacuum all box springs, mattresses, bed frames, nightstands, tables, chairs, couches, baseboards, rugs, and pictures.

Steaming Bed Bugs & Eggs

  • Special dry vapour steamers are used to kill any bed bug eggs, bed bug nymphs, and adult bed bugs that were not captured by the vacuum.


  • Laundry will be removed from closets and dressers, sorting whites from darks, and placed into clear plastic bags. Sealed laundry bags will be placed in the center of the room, out of the exterminators way. Washing can be done by the homeowner/tenant, or professionally done by Extreme Cleanup as a separate service.

Perimeter Preparation

  • We will move couches, wall units, beds, dressers, end tables, nightstands, and all other obstructions three feet from the wall to make the perimiter areas accessible for the exterminator.

Electrical Outlet Preparation

  • Face plates on electrical switches and outlets will be removed so they are ready for the pesticide dust to be applied by the exterminator.
