OMG, i was renting an apt, the landlord doesnt cover squat! You have to make sure your apt/house is spotless.... get rid of all the sheets covers & pillow cases. Lift the mattress find out where all the eggs are...use chlorine bleach to cover every inch of that area using an old tooth brush to really scrub off any remains of the blood they may leave behind & all around under by the rails if you have any the box spring & really locate if you have a host Then try to locate any holes in the floor all around the room & just caulk in all around where you find cracks or holes around the room deep enough. Make sure you vacuum the entire bedroom and immediately throw out the bag as is even if only 1/3 full, you'll thank me later for this advice!
Good luck to ya!
Bed bugs are really tough to get rid of. If you have the money get a professional to come in and take a look. You place will most likely have to be treated. This involves from sprays to the most expensive and best treatment heat. The thing with bed bugs is that they tend to spread from home to home and they multiply rather quickly. Although they are not dangerous per say it you are allergic or sensitive to them you will react to their bites. Most children to react to some degree. Cleaning yourself will involve a big process of taking everything apart and cleaning. If you miss just one you'll have to start again. If you are renting the landlord will take care of the treatment. If you own your own home a professional is really the only way. Good luck, Sue
I was just looking this up (darn hotel room had bedbugs, hopefully they didnt come along with my luggage). Your best bet is to get a professional. They'll come in and spray and what not. You may then want to get stuff steam cleaned. The mattress trick tends to work well, spray the mattress and leave it out in the sun, however, if you've got carpet this may not completely eliminate the problem.
We at once stage had a bed bug problem and my brother is pretty allergic to it. My mother took the mattress outside, took doom and sprayed the mattress and left it outside in the sun for a while. (untill all the doom was out).
I do not know if that is the best way to get rid of them. But it worked first time for us.
