You don’t have to be afraid of bedbugs. Sure, they can be a huge inconvenience, and a little unnerving to discover. Bed bug heat systems from Thermal Flow Technologies can be the solution that you’re looking for, and here’s how.
It’s commonly understood that, when dealing with bedbugs, plunging bed coverings into the dryer can help. The heat from the dryer is hot enough to kill the bed bugs, and the pressure of the air as well as the movement can help dislodge the dead bugs and eggs. Using both a washer and dryer can help ensure that you’re really getting your bed coverings cleaned, but a dryer should be sufficient for things like stuffed animals that you don’t want to damage by throwing them into the washing machine.
Steam is more of a surface treatment than other options, but it can be effective. Steaming works for fabric materials like curtains, bed hangings, sheets and more without causing any damage to these materials. A steamer is relatively easy to use, though it may feel more labor intensive than other heat treatment options against bed bugs.

Every inch gets thoroughly touched and treated by high temperatures, ensuring that all the bed bugs get killed and nothing in your home gets damaged in the process.
