Thermal-Clean Bed Bug Treatment Specialists in Louisville
#1 Source for Bed Bug Treatments in Denver, Colorado
Bed bugs are considered to be the most difficult pest to eradicate. Most
people will immediately call a traditional pest control company. Although
pesticides are a useful tool in combating bed bugs, they generally are
not the best alternative. Other alternative methods exist such as steam,
heat guns or cryogenics. Again, useful tools, but in and of themselves,
they will generally not fix the problem. Thermal Remediation is a proven
non-chemical method of treating both commercial and
residential bed bugs. If you chose to limit your approach to a single method, it is far more
effective than pesticides or other alternative methods alone. However,
again, you would only be using one tool in an effort to fix the problem.
In our 3 years of Thermal Remediation work, we learned a call back rate
of 15-20% is common in the industry using this single tool (even higher
with other methods). We knew we could do better!
An Integrated Approach
Thermal Clean now takes an Integrated approach to
bed bug removal for your office and home. Think of it in terms of using your entire tool box, not just
a single tool. After all, although you might be able to build a boat with
just a hammer, would you want to go on an ocean voyage in that boat? In
other words, we Vacuum, Steam, Thermal Remediate and Apply a light preventative
residual pesticide to the perimeter of each room as a safeguard against
any stragglers which may have alluded the other tools. Since instituting
this approach, we have had no call backs. Historically, this approach
results in a 3-5% call back rate. A clear improvement to the 15-20% call
back rate of standard Thermal Remediation companies experience which do
not integrate a residual pesticide application.
We feel the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) may have said it best:
According to the US EPA:
"Controlling bed bugs takes time and patience….Combining chemical
and non-chemical treatments in a unified approach often make the most
sense. This approach is called integrated pest management (IPM). IPM programs
use current, comprehensive information on the life cycles of pests and
their interaction with the environment combined with available pest control
methods like pesticides. Together this information is used to manage pest
damage based on what you can afford and what is most effective. It also
provides a solution with the least possible hazard to people, property,
and the environment."
Best of all, not only does our process offer the most effective system
for eliminating bed bugs, it is also a better value. This is because:
- Our process requires less equipment!
- Our process requires less man power!
- We use fewer resources (fuel, electricity, pesticides)!
- We have fewer call backs!
In other words, we are less intrusive than traditional methods! This means
less equipment, people and pesticides in your home. Add this to the fact
that we are 200% less likely to have to return to do a secondary treatment,
we are able to reduce our costs and pass that along to our customers.
