Heat Treatment

From £400 + VAT

Heat treatment is an alternative to using chemicals and a service that involves raising the temperature of an infested room above 56ºC for an extended period of time. The result is killing all insects at any stage of their lives: adults, pupae, nymphs and eggs.

Heat treatment is our method of choice against bed bugs, fleas and moths, as well as cockroaches and other insect pests.

Insects

You have a problem with pests that requires a more effective and fast-acting method than using chemicals and poison.

Heat

We heat the room to 56ºC. At this temperature, pests cannot survive for more than 1 minute. We take special care to protect any plants or vulnerable items.

Air Flow

It’s important to maximise airflow around the room and behind temperature. This allows the heat to fully infiltrate the space and leaves pests with nowhere to hide.

Eradicated

Our heat treatment service is so effective that we offer a 100% eradication guarantee. After just one visit, you’ll be totally free of pests.

How does heat treatment work?

Heat treatment is an eco-friendly method that is extremely efficient against any stage of insect development. We use specially-designed propane fire or electric heaters to blast hot air into the rooms. We use temperature probes and laser thermometer to closely monitor your belongings to ensure the critical temperature of 56ºC is reached throughout your property.

If we find a cold spot, we then use a bedbug superheated steamer to reach the required temperature.

Frequently asked questions

Heat treatment will kill bed bugs, fleas and cockroaches and any insect at any life stage. Nothing survives a heat treatment.

If the infestation is limited to one room only, it may not be necessary to do the full home. Also in some circumstances, clients only need to treat one item in particular, such as a bed or a sofa, in which case we can use a heat tent.

Steam is very effective at killing 100% of all life stages of bed bugs and other pests exposed to it on mattresses and accessible surfaces. However, its efficiency decreases if bed bugs are located beneath a fabric cover. Also, bed bugs located behind a leather cover will often survive too.

We use spare racks on which we place the hangers spaced adequately apart and expose the clothes to the heat for 20mins. Then we unload the racks on top of the bed and repeat the operation until the wardrobe is almost empty, at which time the heat will effectively penetrate the area.

In some circumstances, you simply cannot use any chemicals whatsoever. Therefore the only option left is heat treatment. It is by far the safest solution.

Bed bugs that have previously been exposed to pesticides and survived often develop a strong resistance as a consequence. There are already instances of bed bugs in America that are 100% immune to insecticides. In this case, heat treatment is the only solution.

In practice, you cannot carry out heat treatment inside a kitchen or bathroom as it could cause damage to the domestic appliances and to the bathroom ceramic goods. It would be very rare for a client to report bed bug sightings in a kitchen or bathroom – but if there is, we would use steam and/or spraying methods.
