Traveller’s Luggage Decontamination
If you have been exposed to bedbugs while travelling, we can help ensure you do not bring any unwanted souvenirs back with you. Either make arrangements to call into our facility on your way home or 100% seal your luggage and travel items as soon as you arrive home and make contact with the office when it’s open. We can save all your items using our “green” methods and don’t even need to open the luggage once its sealed.
We can even teach you what to look for when you next travel and provide an invaluable educational video in our educational resources section of the website.
If you have been exposed to bedbugs in a hotel or hostel in the UK, please ask them to make arrangements for your luggage to be decontaminated before you travel home. All of our client hotels do this as a matter of routine, should an exposure occur, to ensure they are doing everything possible to stop the problem from spreading.
Clothes and Household items
If bedbugs in your home are more diffused than just in the immediate bed area, it may be necessary to decontaminate items. Our process manuals detail all the appropriate washing and drying temperatures not all items can be subjected to this treatment. Such items will always be identified by your treatment technician during the assessment process and will be documented in your treatment manual.
We have always taken the view that it is more important to get rid of the bedbugs and leave your possessions intact than to adopt the all too common approach of disposing of things regardless of their economic or sentimental value.
With the commissioning of some new systems in July 2011, we can now offer overnight decontamination suitable for up to 8.5 cubic foot of material per load. This is most useful to travellers who have been exposed to bedbugs away from home and want to ensure that they don’t carry anything unwanted home with them. Simply send your bags to us or stop in on your way home to ensure that bedbugs are not unwanted souvenirs of your travels.
This approach has been successfully used on numerous occasions to help people move from an infested location and ensures that they do not take any bedbugs, eggs or infested items with them.
