Unfortunately there is a rising epidemic of bed bugs in the United States right now. If you experience this problem then you need to know how to deal with it in the most efficient way. Bed bugs can actually find their way onto anything including handbags, shoes and luggage but the most common things that they latch on to are sheets and clothes.
The good news is that you can get rid of the bed bugs on your sheets and clothes but there are only really two effective ways to do this. We will discuss both of these here and provide you with the very best solution to get rid of bed bugs from your sheets and clothes quickly and easily.
Research has proved that you can kill bed bugs at freezing temperatures. What you need to do here is to reduce the temperature of your infested sheets and clothes to -17° Celsius which is 0° Fahrenheit.
If you freeze your sheets and clothes for a minimum of two hours at this temperature then you will kill all the life stages of bed bugs. The problem with this method is that it takes a long time to reach these freezing temperatures.
Research showed that it took around 8 hours for the temperature of a 5.5 pound batch of sheets and clothes to reach -17° Celsius or 0° Fahrenheit. For the freezing to kill all bed bug life forms the temperature at the center of the clothing batch has to reach -17° Celsius or 0° Fahrenheit. So you would need to put your sheets and clothes in your freezer for a minimum of 10 hours.
Do you really want to put bed bug infested clothing in your freezer? Let alone have to wait for several hours? You will have to wash the sheets and clothes afterwards anyway so this method is not the best.
Research also proved that you can kill all forms of bed bug life in your sheets and clothing by subjecting them to extreme heat. We are talking about temperatures from 40° to 50° Celsius or 104° to 122° Fahrenheit here.
You will need to wash your sheets and clothes at this temperature for at least 20 minutes and some experts recommend for at least an hour. Sometimes home washers and driers cannot achieve this and if they can it can take a lot out of the machines operating at this extreme heat.
A better solution is to bring your bed bug infested sheets and clothes to MegaWash Laundromat. We have the latest technology machines that you can set on high and they will wash everything for you effortlessly at temperatures around 60° Celsius or 140° Fahrenheit.
No forms of bed bug life will survive that which includes adults, nymphs and eggs. We recommend that you place your bed bug infested sheets in a separate trash bag to quarantine them from your other clothes. Don’t just mix everything up in the same bag or everything will become infested!
