It will be a really scary experience when your home is infested with bed bugs. Complete wipe out of the parasite is very difficult and in some cases the bugs infest the whole house and you need to seek an expert pest control service to get out of the situation.

Here are some home remedies that may be used as soon as you see bed bugs in your house. This may help control the breeding and take care of the situation before things get out of hand.

Natural Remedies To Kill Bed Bugs :

Vacuum Cleaning:

Vacuum cleaning is one of the most effective ways by which most of the bugs will be removed in a swish. Vacuuming will trap all the bugs into the suction air and therefore the bugs can be removed or destroyed after this procedure. Vacuuming should be done several times and for many days to be effective.It is also important not to use the areas wherever you're doing the vacuum treatment throughout these days. This may help the bugs to starve and die. Avoid using the area for at least a month to make sure that they're destroyed completely.

Talcum Powder:

Another safe and easy way to kill the bed bugs is to sprinkle the powder generously on the area so that the bugs will be suffocated to death. This too would need patience and you might have to do the treatment several times for taking care of all the bugs. At this time, you need to ensure that you avoid sleeping in these areas. Baby powder is the best for killing bugs.


Hot Water Treatment:

Bed bugs cannot thrive in hot weather. Thus, treating all the upholstery and affected areas with hot water is helpful in killing the bed bugs. Clothes that are treated with hot water can be ironed as well in very high temperature for killing the bed bugs. Upholstery and furniture can be left under the hot sun to kill the bugs and discourage them from any further infestation.

Steam Treatment:

Just like heat treatment, steam can also kill bed bugs as they can't tolerate the hot moisture and intense steam. For this, a steam vacuum cleaner will be used. Steaming should be done many times in order to kill all the bed bugs.

Steaming might not be terribly effective if the bed bug infestation is very intense and has gone deeper than half an inch below your mattress. In such cases, you can try a combination treatment like hot and steam treatment and leaving the affected clothes, upholstery, and furniture under the sun as well.

Cold Treatment:

Bed bugs may also be killed by treating them with extreme cold. During this winter season, this becomes a simple task as all the upholstery and furniture may be left outside under the harsh winter climate. Clothes and other smaller things can be left in the deep freezer for killing the bugs.Wash your clothes in very cold water or leave them in water along with ice cubes for killing the bugs.


Boric Acid:

Sprinkling boric acid on areas wherever there's bed bug infestation is another effective way to kill the bed bugs. However, after completion of the treatment, care must be taken to confirm that the boric acid powder is totally cleaned from the areas wherever you reside. It's not recommended to sprinkle boric acid on your upholstery and bed as it will be difficult to get rid of them completely after the treatment.

Vacuum Your Carpet Regularly:

One of the most important things you can do to keep your carpets clean is also one of the easiest. Regularly vacuum your carpets in order to get rid of dirt and other debris that can makes its way into your carpet fibers. Ideally, you should vacuum at least a couple times a week, but if you have small children or pets in your home it is recommended that you vacuum more often.

Remove candle wax with heat:

Candle wax can be the cause of much tearing out of hair,Some customers have even hacked and snipped away at the wax and carpet with scissors in order to remove brightly colored candle wax. There really is no need. Simply take a blunt knife  and slide it under the wax and remove as much wax as will easily come away. Then put a couple of paper towels on top of the remaining wax and, using an iron, run the iron over the spot (covered by the towels). The wax should come away and transfer to the cloths.

Use a good stain remover:

There are many ways of making your own stain remover. Some possible ingredients include baking powder and white vinegar. Some professional carpet cleaning companies sell their own general purpose stain removers and these are usually safe and very effective. Whatever you do, please do not use supermarket bought stain removers. They are responsible for ruining so many carpets and sofas.

Avoid excessive water:

If you insist on hiring a rental machine, be very careful not to over-wet your carpets. Use as little water as possible and ensure your house is adequately ventilated. Saturated carpets can shrink and cause some pretty horrible odour due to the growth of mold.

Carpet protector:

Premium quality carpet protection helps protect your flooring from stains and spills and ensures common stains are easier to remove. It also helps prevent dry soil from bonding to the fibers and causing permanent damage. I would recommend carpet protector if you have carpet in a particular area that is exposed to high traffic such as hallways and stairs.

Regular Aurospaces professional cleaning:

Professional carpet cleaning extends the life of quality carpets and ultimately saves you money. It also keeps your carpets looking beautifully clean if carried out regularly. More importantly, it helps improve the health of your home and reduce allergens. Try not to leave it longer than 18 months between professional cleaning.

Note:

After cleaning carpets always leave doors and windows open ,the moisture needs to escape. Wool carpets will give off a wet doggy smell this is normal and will disappear after completely drying .
