Our founder’s first exposure to bed bugs occurred in 2006, when a tenant called to say they had bed bugs. It was the first of more calls to come as the infestations around Denver Metro spread. For the next several years, we tried numerous ways to rid apartments of bed bugs whenever they were found. Unfortunately, little was known about bed bugs at the time.
We tried pest control companies, diatomaceous earth, vacuuming, removing carpet, steam cleaning carpet, and probably made every mistake in the book. In 2009, we had a major outbreak in one of our buildings when a tenant did not report their bed bug problem and attempted to handle it on their own. We didn’t learn of the outbreak until all the surrounding units started to report bed bugs in their home. We had heard about using thermal remediation, but we were skeptical. However, given the severity of the outbreak and knowing how difficult it is to get rid of an infestation in one unit, much less multiple units, we knew we had to take our protocol to a new level.
Compared to everything else, thermal remediation yielded by far the best results. The upset calls from residents stopped. The legal threats were no more. We had found an answer. Flash forward and now, for over a decade, we have been providing safe and effective bed bug remediation and larvae extraction services in Denver and throughout the Colorado Front Range.
Thermal Heat Remediation
While bed bug removal is an involved process, it doesn’t have to drive you out of your home. Thermal Clean provides safe, effective bed bug removal that doesn’t require you and your family to move into a hotel. Generally speaking, our bed bug removal process is completed in one treatment in one day.
What Is Thermal Heat
Thermal Heat Remediation is the process of heating up the entire home or structure to a temperature between 135-140 degrees for a period of time that is lethal to both bed bugs and their eggs.
We use industrial heaters that we strategically place throughout the space along with computerized temperature monitoring to ensure all areas are properly heated. After we have ensured the correct temperature has been reached for a sufficient time, we will remove the heaters and then apply a light pesticide for a residual treatment. Together, we have a 99% success rate on the first treatment.

Our heaters will bring the entire home/space to a temperature between 135-140 degrees and keep it there for an extended time. This ensures the bugs and their eggs will die in every crack, crevice and room in the home.
After we take out the heaters, we will do a light pesticide application along the baseboards of the home or space. This is another layer of protection to ensure the bed bugs are gone and stay gone.
Our process is 99% effective on the first treatment, meaning once we leave, you can rest soundly knowing that the bugs are gone and are not coming back.
