Safe and Effective Bed Bug Heat Treatment Services in Calgary

HEAT TREATMENT PROCESS

Although there are currently several options available for getting rid of bedbugs, we recommend heat because:

Heat Treatment is Effective

Most exterminators use toxic chemicals to kill bed bugs but these chemicals are only effective at killing live bugs; they do not destroy the eggs. This often leads to re-infestation, requiring a second or even third treatment to exterminate the bedbugs completely. . Bed bug heat treatment in Calgary kills adult and juvenile bedbugs as well as bed bug eggs, preventing future infestations. Heat treatment also penetrates furniture, bedding and walls; thus killing bed bugs that are hidden deep within the cracks and crevices. In our experience, 92% of bedbug infestations are eradicated after a single treatment.

Heat Treatment is Fast

With our bed bug heat treatment in Calgary, you can get results fast. Because heat kills all stages of bed bug in a single treatment, we can take care of your bed bug issue in as little as 8 hours. Although, chemical treatments can be completed in an hour or less, follow up treatments are often required, leaving you with bedbugs for weeks longer than if you had used heat.

Heat Treatment is Convenient

Using heat treatment minimizes disturbance to your household. Heat treatment requires less preparation – there is no need to move furniture; no need to dispose of furniture and no additional treatments are necessary

Heat Treatment is Safe for your Family and your Belongings

Traditional chemical and pesticide treatments contain toxins that are not only harmful to bedbugs, but also to humans and animals. When used properly, bed bug heat treatment in Edmonton is extremely safe for you, your pets and your belongings.

extherminate™ equipment is safe and we have taken all precautions to eliminate any possible chance of a fire or damage to a structure.

Other Common Questions About Heat Treatment

What should I take with me on the day of the heat treatment?

  • Take as little as possible. The more you take with you, the greater chance of bringing a bed bug with you.
  • Items you should remove include:
    • live plants and any pets (including fish)
    • candles, crayons, lipstick, crafts held together with glue
    • Vinyl items – vinyl blinds, records
    • Medications (these can be placed in the fridge as well)
    • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions

What about my TV and other electronics?

  • Electronics, including TVs and computers, will not be damaged by heat treatment. We ask that you turn them off prior to treatment.
  • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions.

Do I need to throw out my mattress?

  • Toxic chemicals used by traditional methods are absorbed into your mattress and in most cases must be thrown away after treatment. Because our method does not use these chemicals, you can keep your mattress and that expensive bedding.
  • Refer to our extherminate™ User Manual for full instructions.

What should I expect after a heat treatment?

  • Your home and many of your belongings may still be warm. This is normal and your home and belongings will cool down shortly. Opening windows and doors can speed up this process.
  • You will find dead bed bugs after the treatment. These can be easily vacuumed up. You should not find any live bed bugs in your home. If you believe that you still have live bed bugs please contact us immediately.

This letter is to be used as a recommendation for the company You Kill Bedbugs Ltd. This was our first and hopeful last experience with bed bugs. You kill bed bugs and Steve were both professional and reassuring. From the moment of our call, their main concern was how best to rid our home of these pests and also what would give us the best peace of mind. All of the options were clearly explained and any questions were promptly addressed. If this problem ever arose again, my first and only call would be to You Kill Bed Bugs!

Ross C in Calgary, Alberta

We had an infestation of bed bugs in our apartment blocks and used Extherminate Safe Heat Kits in our building. Using the heating units we were able to bring the suite temperatures up to 130 degrees Fahrenheit in a couple of hours and the heaters are setup to kick off automatically at 130 degrees so you just set them up and let them go. We heated the apartments at the temperature for 3 hours, as we didn’t want to have to come back and do this again. The units heated the rooms as well as the walls to temperature. Thanks for the help in showing us how easy it is find and kill the little buggers.

Ty Oler, Palm Springs Investments in Lethbridge, Alberta

I am very pleased with the bed bug Heat treatment done by you kill bed bug company in my apartment unit. It has been more than 6 months and there are no bed bugs since when treatment is done. I had two chemical treatments done prior to this heat treatment with no luck. I highly recommend this treatment for anyone having bed bug issues. It is very effective, no preparation time and easy to use. Thanks

Kavita in Edmonton, Alberta

You Kill Bedbugs saved us! They were efficient, knowledgeable, and fast! We needed immediate action for our problem and were so relieved once the heaters started. All the advise with the carpet tape was so helpful and it was easy and chemical free. Than you so much.

Katie in Calgary, Alberta

Hi Bed bug kill… We had a problem of bed bugs, came with our tenants in the basement. I used the heating system and they are gone. O think the heating system is the only way to kill them. Thanks

Adeel in Edmonton, Alberta

I am writing a testimonial for my experience with your heat service. This summer my daughter returned from a day trip out in Kananaskis and had a couple of nights of consistent bed bug biting. I opted to be proactive and had a heat treatment done while we were away. My experience with You Kill Bedbugs Ltd. was very positive. our consultation was professional and thorough. I was also surprised and pleased to learn that the heat treatment kills mold as well. We have had some basement flooding in the past and mold has been a concern of mine for a few years. the house definitely is fresher and feels clean. A lot of dust and debris does get kicked up, nut after a good cleaning it feels better than ever. Also, no more bites. I would recommend this service without hesitation.

I am glad You Kill Bedbugs was able to rent me their kit on such short notice. I was able to operate it without any trouble and everything worked great. I’m hoping that heating my bedroom/bathroom was enough to eliminate all the bugs. It sure was a lot cheaper than doing the whole house, so I’m glad the heating kit was an option.

Cherie D in Edmonton, Alberta

We used You Kill Bed Bugs portable heaters. They were easy and straight forward to use. The management was courteous and returned calls promptly. We had an issue with the stove connection blowing the breaker and they made a suggestion to rectify the problem. I would recommend them for environmental solutions.

Anonymous in Edmonton, Alberta

Steve was very helpful, knowledgeable, and professional. We are very happy with our experience with You Kill Bedbugs Ltd. We rented the heat kit for 1 week and did the treatment ourselves, and it was successful. We can sleep peacefully knowing that all stages of the bed bugs were killed by the heat. I will recommend this company to everyone that has the misfortune of having bed bugs.

Danielle W in Calgary, Alberta

We were surprised at how simple the process was and thrilled that we could do it ourselves.

The guy Steve is very friendly and explained us everything. I will recommend everyone to call you kill bed bugs if you have bedbugs problem as they are the best. Thanks a lot for your help!

Hasan in Calgary, Alberta

You Kill Bedbugs provided a good service. They explain how the equipment works and also give you extra tips for effective treatment! The equipment is solid, it heats up the room to over 50 degrees celsius. At this moment, 2 days after the treatment the biting stopped.

K.K. in Calgary, Alberta

Thank you very much. It was very easy and the equipment was light and easy to move around. Excellent customer service. He showed us how to use it and was very polite. The cost was good not too expensive. Thanks again

Ikram H in Edmonton, Alberta

I would have liked a little more time with the technician to better understand the process. We didn’t realize what the power requirements were. Our stove and dryer are both gas so we didn’t have the right outlets. It took several hours to find a combination of outlets that didn’t blow the breakers. We did get it worked out eventually with a call to the technician, but it was a frustrating start. I can see how this system would be very manageable for an aprtment or a small bungalow, but in our 1600 sqft two story it was difficult. That being said if it worked I will be thrilled. And it did!

Paul D in Edmonton, Alberta

The exterminators brought in two devices that killed the bed bugs that were extremely bad in the 2 rooms. It was successful! Thank You

Heather W. in Edmonton, Alberta

Hello. We scoured the Net for all kinds of options and found yours to be the best priced option with great reviews. Additionally, the machine was easy to set up and use. The pre-operating video and preps were very thorough and detailed. Nobody wants to spend $500/=, but if it got rid of the problem, then it was worth every cent! Nobody, should go through this problem...but life happens. Importantly, your product worked and your customer service was excellent! Thanks Steve and Company!!

PS. Don't take this personally, but we hope NEVER to need your services again....lol

I had a good experience with You Kill bedbugs in every way. Very professional, very helpful, and I believe in their heating technology. In my experience powders and sprays do not work all that well.

David E in Calgary, Alberta

This is in reference to the rental of your heater for the infestation of bed bugs at my parents apartment in Medicine Hat. We really appreciated your knowledge and willingness to help us. The heater was turned on Saturday noon and was not turned off until the following Saturday. Once the heat stabilized and reached the 50 degrees it did not quit once and kept the heat at that steady degrees. It was a God send for us and our parents and we felt reassured it really did the job you said it would do. Thank you for your services and full Kindness.

Roger & Noella L in Medicine Hat, Alberta

We reached out to You Kill bedbugs to help us deal with a bed bug issue we were having in our house. We used the heat/fan across the house in order to kill off the bed bugs and noticed that the heater had introduced a gap in between one of our hardwood floor panels in one room, had bent the vinyl blinds in another room and also that our laminate floor in one other room had lifted and became slightly warped. We contacted Steve with You Kill bedbugs to inform him of the issues we had run into and that having the heater directly off the floor prevented further issues with our floor. Steve came to our house to assess the damages and offered a 50% discount on the services provided. We accepted his offer without issue or complication.

Adam A in Calgary, Alberta (October 2012)

Thanks Steve. The process was easy and the service great. I was happy to avoid the use of chemicals. Lots of information was provided and all of my questions answered. I would definitely recommend this service to anybody.

Tyson in Calgary, Alberta

I am writing to testify that You Kill bed bugs had helped us a lot in eliminating bed bugs in our home. Before, we had so many bed bug bits, we thought it was an allergy until we went to a family doctor and confirmed to us that is was bed bug bites. We can’t sleep all night and we move from different areas of the house to sleep and get there is a lot of itchy bites in the morning. Until we learned about You Kill bedbugs they were so helpful teaching us where bed bugs come form. After the treatment in our home, we feel so relaxed everyday, very happy, joyful and always looking forward to sleep at night because nothing bother us anymore. We strongly recommend You Kill Bedbugs.

Sincerely Ahaliza R in Calgary, Alberta

Many thanks, We will recommend Steve with You Kill Bedbugs to whomever we know to have a nightmare problem as we did. Thanks a Bill!
