Fleas and bed bugs need to be handled carefully in order for you to get rid of them. Follow the instructions below before we arrive:
Remove items off of carpet, including under the bed and inside closets. These items can be put on tables.
On hard floors like vinyl, concrete, or wood, simply move items to the centre of the floor.
Vacuum all floors and chair cushions, and then put the vacuum bag in a sealed trash bag and place in the dumpster.
If you own a fish tank, shut off the pump and cover the tank.
Wash all bedding and curtains (including comforters) and put in black trash bags. Place the trash bags outside on a hot day to heat up and destroy any infestation in the linens.
Take all the precautions mentioned above for fleas.
We suggest steam cleaning carpet before initial service.
Clock radios, stereos, and other appliances infested with bed bugs must be discarded or treated by you.
Remove clutter and contents that are on or in dressers and tables near beds, sofas, and chairs. These pieces of furniture will have to be taken apart, turned over for inspection, and possibly treated.
