BEDS AND BEDDING:
Bed bug certified mattress encasements are really important and we strongly recommend that bed bug certified mattress encasements be installed on all beds. Mattress and box springs.
Cardboard boxes, old magazines, stacks of papers and old mail can all provide places for bed bugs to hide. When you discard items seal the bag tightly and dispose of outside.

All sheets, bedding materials and pillows except the bottom sheet should be removed from the beds and sealed in plastic trash bags in preparation of cleaning.

People and Pets
All members of the household need to be out of the household during the treatment this includes cats, dogs, birds and reptiles. A good rule of thumb is to arrange for everyone to be out of the treatment area for at least 2 hours after treatment.
