Room Preparation Checklist for Bed Bugs

Preparation of a room for treatment is essential to the successful management of bed bugs. Most pest managers prefer to conduct an inspection BEFORE any cleaning or rearranging has occurred. This gives the pest manager a sense of the full extent of the problem and prevents the disturbance and spread of bed bugs before treatment. However, once bed bugs are located and the size of the problem has been estimated, room preparation must be done, and usually by the resident.

  • Remove all blankets, sheets, covers, pillows, bath towels, drapes and curtains from the bed and throughout the room. Place the items into bags, which will be taken to the laundry.
  • Empty drawers and closets and place belongings into plastic bags. Place all clothing and coats into bags for transport to the laundry. Shoes, pillows, and children's plush toys should be bagged for the laundry.
  • Make sure the pest control professional can get to all furniture, closets, beds, and baseboards to inspect and treat. Dust covers may be removed from furniture to treat . Click here to print checklist.

    Pesticides, alone, will not eliminate a bed bug infestation. Inspecting and cleaning the living are and all personal belongings are critical for bed bug control and elimination. Cleaning should occur before pesticides are used. Fellow all the recommended steps as they apple to the individual situation.

  • Seal all clothing and linens in large clear plastic bags. Clear bags are good because bed bugs can be seen inside them. If clean then they can be run through a hot dryer for 30 minutes. If dirty then launder as usual. Do not over stuff the dryer, heat must reach all items. Return all items to clear plastic bags.
  • All pillows, shoes, coats, and children's plush toys should be treated by placing them into a HOT dryer for 30 minutes. Do not over stuff the dryer, heat must reach all items.
