Bed Bug Heat Treatments From Sprague

Thermal remediation is the most effective and greenest way to eliminate bed bugs. We're proud to be one of the first in Portland and Seattle as well as in Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Utah to offer Heat Treatments as a solution to bed bugs.

The scientific principle behind Bed Bug Heat Treatments is simple but proven; raise the temperature of an infested area to 120 degrees to kill all life stages of bed bugs. Within a single 6-8 hour treatment, rooms can return to normal use, free of live bed bugs.

    How does it work?

    Once heat-sensitive items are removed from the room, our trained and certified bed bug service teams use specially designed heaters, high-powered fans and ducting to direct air flow to designated treatment areas. Clean, dry, odorless heat is used to create an environment lethal to bed bugs. Inside temperatures are monitored using digital equipment and temperature sensors to ensure temperature is maintained at levels that are lethal to bed bugs.

    Canine Confirmed

    After a Heat Treatment is performed, one of our certified Bed Bug Canines inspects to confirm the heat treatment's success. Learn more about our Bed Bug Dog Services.
