What To Do After You’ve Gotten Rid of Bedbugs

A bedbug infestation is like a nightmare. It feels too horrible to be true, and it seems to go on forever. Most bedbug infestations need to be treated with chemical treatments. Those chemical treatments tend to be very effective, but even after you’ve completed one, you should still follow a few steps to ensure that your bedbugs don’t come back.

First, if you haven’t already, you’ll need to thoroughly clean all clothing, bedding, linens, towels, curtains, etc. Wash in hot water and dry on the highest setting. Don’t forget about smaller items like shoes, stuffed animals, scarves, and gloves. If you can’t put those items in the washing machine, just make sure to put them in the dryer for at least 30 minutes on high.

Next, vacuum thoroughly all throughout your house. When you’re finished, take the vacuum bag out to the garbage right away.

Scrub your mattress with a stiff brush. You might want to consult a professional about getting a new mattress, in case the one you have has been infested.

Check cracks in plaster and wallpaper; these are spots where bedbugs like to hide. Make sure to repair any cracks you find.
