Preventing Bed Bugs in Moving Services & Six Helpful Moving Tips
When homeowners think of bed bugs, they naturally think “beds.” If the beds and linens are clean,
there is no need to worry about bed bugs, right? Unfortunately, the answer is no, especially if you
are moving into a new home. The bed bugs that made their home in your linens, ceilings, or
furniture cracks can easily stow away on moving trucks, making unpacking an infestation nightmare.
Environmental Heat Solutions offers several moving options, which we will highlight today.
Moving Truck Inspection and Treatment Service
At Environmental Heat Solutions, we know bed bugs can live over a year without feeding. Although
your trucks and packed items may look clean, you might have an infestation waiting to happen in
your moving trucks. Therefore, Environmental Heat Solutions offers quality truck inspection and bed
bug treatment before you move. We can inspect your trucks and items at any time before, during, or
after the moving process. If we find bed bugs, we can use highly trained detection dogs or our
thermal remediation heat treatments to remove the bugs quickly, discreetly, and efficiently, so your
move won’t be delayed. We offer services for residential and corporate moves.
Six Moving Tips
Environmental Heat Solutions encourages these prevention measures before moving:
1. Dry all appropriate items on the hottest setting available before packing
2. Purchase mattress encasements for all mattresses and box springs; inspect mattresses
before and after packing
3. Store electronics and other non-washables in tightly sealed plastic bins or bags, and treat
them with special heating units or pest strips
4. If you must destroy infested items, especially furniture, seal them tightly in plastic and write
“bed bugs” on them to prevent neighbors from bringing them into their homes or from
trying to resell them
5. Seal all clothing and shoes in plastic bags. The day of the move, everyone should shower or
bathe and wear clean shoes and clothing
6. Have all furniture cleaned and treated before the move. Call a pest professional such as the
ones at Environmental Heat Solutions.
