Wash Bed Linens In Hot Water
It is no secret that bed bugs could have been hiding in your mattress or sheets–hence the name bed bugs! Since bed bugs cannot withstand extreme heat, be sure to wash your bed linens in hot water. In addition, select the hottest dryer setting when drying these linens.
Bed bugs could also be living in your carpets. That being said, you may be able to kill off any remaining bed bugs by vacuuming your carpets. Once you have done so, remember to throw away the vacuum cleaner bag in an outdoor receptacle as soon as possible.
Get Rid Of Damaged Belongings
Bed bugs have the ability to severely damage your belongings. If you know this all too well, it is a good idea to get rid of those bed bug infested items. Put any damaged possessions into plastic bags before bringing them to the dumpster.
