How Do I Prepare For Bed Bug Treatment In Broken Arrow OK?
If you want your bed bug treatments to be effective and go as smoothly as possible, you need to do some preparation beforehand. This may include cleaning, clearing out clutter, removing linens from the mattress and boxsprings, and making the arrangements to leave the space for several hours.

How Can You Prepare For Bed Bug Treatment
When you contact a pest control company to treat your bed bug infestation, they should provide a list of actions you need to take to prepare for treatment. This checklist will depend on the method of extermination and the company doing it, but some common bed bug treatment preparations include:
- Removing all linens and fabrics from the bedroom and washing them in hot water
- Clearing all personal items on furniture and the floor
- Remove everything from the closets and drawers
- Launder all clothing in the hottest water possible to store for a few weeks post-treatment
- Move furniture away from the walls to give access to the baseboards

What to Do After Bed Bug Treatment
Your course of action post-treatment will depend on the method your exterminator uses to treat the infestation. But, typically, things should return to normal in your home within a few hours. As a rule of thumb, we suggest you do not shampoo or clean your floors for three weeks after treatment, to allow the process to thoroughly kill the entirety of the infestation.
How Much Bed Bug Treatment is Needed?
There are a lot of DIY bed bug treatments that claim to achieve success without the need of a professional exterminator. But, while baking soda and diatomaceous earth may kill a few bugs, it’s far from a reliable choice for eradicating an infestation. Unless you want to apply, then reapply, then reapply again ad infinitum, the best course of action is always expert treatment. The team at Arrow Exterminators, Inc. is one of the few companies in the Broken Arrow OK area that has cutting-edge thermal remediation equipment, enabling us to get rid of bed bugs in a single, comprehensive session.
