When it comes to dealing with bedbugs in a commercial setting, you need to make sure that you approach an infestation with the right tools and methods. You need to take proper action to keep the bedbugs from spreading.
Quarantine the Room
If you think a room has bed bugs in it, you need to quarantine the room. You don't want a bunch of cleaning staff going in and out of the room. You don't want to have customers going in and out of the room. You need to stop movement in and out of the room to ensure that the bed bugs don't spread to other parts of the building.
When you quarantine the room, you need to leave all of the items in the space. Don't try to take things out of the room as that could just spread the bed bugs. You don't know if the bed bugs are just in one room or if they have spread out to other spaces. You don't want to spread the bed bugs yourself as with a commercial property, they really could be contained to a single room.
Allow the Professionals to Clean up
Once you quarantine the room, it is time to call in the professionals. In your own home, you may want to try some home cleaning methods; however, in a commercial building where profits are at risk, you should not attempt to clean the room on your own.
A professional team will show up quickly and work to disinfect the room. They will start by taking all the furniture and taking it away from the walls. They will turn the furniture over to spot and treat the bedbugs.
Then, the professional team will then remove all items from the walls. Bed bugs don't just hide behind furniture; they can hide behind paintings and other items on the wall. They will bag up any loose items in a secure bag and take them away from the property for cleaning.
After that, the professional team will check around the perimeter of the carpet and clean the baseboards. They will work to clean all items in the room and eradicate the bedbugs from the room.
Once that room is clean, they will then work to figure out if the infection has spread.
When you have a bed bug infestation in a commercial property, it is important for you to call in professional help. Quarantine the room to keep the bed bugs from spreading, and work with a professional team to get your property bed bug free. Bug bugs can be persistent, so you want to treat them quickly.
