One thing that runs through everyone’s mind when they find out they have bed bugs is “how long does it take to get rid of bed bugs?” Getting rid of bed bugs with heat treatment takes between four and seven hours, and only takes one single treatment. That as opposed to insecticide treatments, which take between 30 minutes and two hours, but require multiple visits and for you to be out of your house for many hours after each treatment.

Why does heat treatment work so quickly to eliminate bed bugs?

Bed bugs grow best in dark and warm environments, which is why they thrive in the mattresses where we sleep. But that growth quickly slows and even turns to death at exceptionally warm temperatures. Once temperatures reach 40 degrees Celsius, bed bugs will die within 24 hours. Increase that temperature by 10 degrees to 50, and those bugs die instantly. Heat treatment works by saturating areas in your house with this high heat. The heat stays constant until the treatment is over and, due to the fact the entire area is permeated by the heat, even the hard to reach areas of your home are treated. Our specialized Equipment is capable of generating temperatures of up to 75 degrees Celsius.

One and done treatment

Unlike chemical extermination, heat treatment is a one-time solution and typically only requires one visit from the Thermagone team. Whether you’re located in Brampton or Mississauga, let Thermagone come and take care of your bed bugs once and for all. You will only be out of your house for a few hours in the day, and return to a healthy, happy, and bed bug free home, without having to worry about a second or third treatment down the road. Bed bugs are attracted to heat sources and will ultimately be drawn to their death. The reason chemical treatments take more than one shot is because bed bugs flee the treated areas and return when the chemicals have worn off.
