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.

What Our Clients Say About Us

You Kill Bedbugs Ltd… I Jodie, tried this service. Although Steve is a very fair and nice man, this service didn’t work out for me. Steve will make sure you are happy though. I would encourage people who have smaller homes or condo to try out this service if you wish to DIY heat treat.

Jodie in Calgary, Alberta

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 just want to thank the guys from You Kill Bed Bugs for the services that they provided for our rental property bed bug problem. The heat kit worked exactly the way they explained and we are happy with the job.

Ray & Pam 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.

After finding bite marks of what we thought were from bed bugs, we contacted You Kill Bed Bugs inquiring about their services. They responded promptly answering all of our questions as well as providing insight into where the bugs may have come from and where in the house they were potentially living. They put us in contact with a bed bug sniffing dog to ensure bed bugs actually were in the home as to not treat unnecessarily. When bed bugs were discovered they were able to provide their services within the week. Documentation around the heat treatment was provided including preparation of the home. they arrived in the morning and worked around our schedule. We appreciated that Steve and Shaun were very discrete and didn’t arrive in a van with giant bed bugs on the side of it. They thoroughly inspected to ensure that we did not miss anything that would be damaged by the heat treatment. The heat treatment worked well and our bed bug concerns are now gone. We are no longer being bitten in the night. Follow up phone calls were made right after the treatment as well as a month later. We always felt well informed regarding what they were doing to and in our home. Thanks for the great service.

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.

Steve & Lisa L in Calgary, Alberta

Once we realized what we were dealing with at our house, we did a lot of research to find out what to do about the situation. All the research we saw indicated that heat was the best solution, with much less likelihood of a re-infestation than with chemicals. I contacted You Kill Bedbugs for help. They were great and best of all, they solved the problem completely. Now several months later, we’re still all clear. A hearty recommendation form northwest Calgary!

Steve was very professional, knowledgeable, accommodating, and pleasant to work with. Set up of their heat system was a snap and did the job! I would recommend We Kill Bed bugs.

Tyson in Calgary, Alberta

The included thermometer gives you a lot of confidence that the treatment is effective. Being able to make sure that heat made it everywhere was a big help.

Bob in Calgary, Alberta

We had bedbugs problem in our house. Every night there were bedbug bites on few of us. My kids were so scared specially my daughter, she refused to sleep by herself in her room. Therefore I started search on the internet how to get rid of this problem. I went through different treatment options like different chemical treatments. But these chemical treatments require lots of preparation. Then I came across heat treatment and found research articles those were backing the heat treatments as a best option to get rid of bed bugs. Therefore I decided to call a few companies and finally decided to go with youkillbedbugs because they are purely bedbug treatment guys and their charges are way better than other companies. So I called Steve Stein and discussed about my problem. He was very professional, friendly and listened my problem very carefully I was so relieved after talking to him. After few days he came to my house with heat treatment equipment. He did whole setup in my house. Now my house is completely bed bug free and I owe all this to these guys. I highly recommend youkillbedbugs company. Thank you guys.

There’s little point in wasting words, so I’ll get right down to brass tax. As I did my research, I found out about the heat kit. Initially I was skeptical, but must say it really does work! Steve was very informative on how to operate the equipment and very responsive to all my inquiries. Thank you guys for bringing my bedbug nightmare to an end.

Tatiana 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!

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!

AFTER PURCHASING THE BED BUG MACHINE IN 2014 WE HAVE APPROX 1262 HRS ON THE MACHINE. WE HAVE DONE A TOTAL OF 40 TREATMENTS ON INDIVIDUAL ROOMS WITH THE MACHINE. TO DATE I AM ESTIMATING THAT IT HAS SAVED OUR AGENCY ABOUT $10,000 IN EXTERMINATOR FEES. WE HAVE GREATLY BENEFITED FROM HAVING THE MACHINE, AND MANY OTHER AGENCIES IN THE COMMUNITY INQUIRED AS TO HOW WE KEEP ON TOP OF THE BED BUG SITUATION. AND WE HIGHLY RECOMMEND THAT THEY GET IN TOUCH WITH YOU TO GET A MACHINE FOR THEIR BUILDINGS. THANKS A LOT

Hey Steve,
As far as I can tell, the heat treatment seems to have killed them all. I cleaned everything up and have been inspecting constantly. No signs of them and no bites on me. I still get the creepy crawly feelings, but that's just me thinking about them.
I very much appreciated your help and diligence with this awful problem!
Thanks, Dean

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

Thanks for the extra time we needed. Hope we got all the little buggers. Again Thanks a lot!

U might find this hard to believe, but our bed bug experience was a pleasant one! Not from the bed bugs of course haha, but dealing with Steve at You Kill Bed Bugs. We never thought this would happen to us or even knew what bed bugs were. We were shocked and embarrassed but Steve assured us that this can and does happen to anyone, regardless of how careful and clean u think u are. After some education in bed bugs and on our easy to use heat treatments, we were cured and will now be forever grateful to Steve and company to be rid of our problem. Thank you!

Elias in Calgary, Alberta

You Kill Bed Bugs have been a life saver. We moved into a place that was infested with bed bugs. I called them and they responded to me in less than an hour. They brought over the heater and fan and we got started right away. Thank you!

Kari & Gary in Edmonton, 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

Recently our family and friends came back from traveling in Alberta where we discovered that one of our party found a bed big in her bed. We took precautions when we returned to our home but felt there were some signs of bed bugs. I was looking for an effective, eco-friendly system to clean my home with out using pesticides. I looked in the yellow pages after doing some research on the internet and found a company called You Kill Bed Bugs. We live in a small town some distance form Edmonton, but this company was more than co-operative in helping us with a take home system to meet our needs. They met me on the outskirts of the city with a portable heater and fan unit that could easily be transported to our home with 100 feet of power cords. A friendly young man thoroughly explained the equipment and how to use it. Wow, what and easy, effective machine. I felt confident that this heat method was doing it’s job to prevent any spread of an infestation. it was easily moved from room to room, following the instructions that were sent to me by email. Knowing how important it is to have a method which could penetrate into the hard to get cracks and corners, relieved any fears that some bugs or larva may be missed. With a growing concern in this country of bed bug contamination, I feel that this company and its safe effective system are the way to go. i would be sure to use this company again.

Really liked a no-chemical solution. It seemed to have worked. No bugs!!
The best solution to an ugly problem.

We were very impressed with the simplicity of the equipment and how easy it is to use it all by ourselves. As regards to the total effectiveness of the whole system, only time will tell. Steve is a great guy who gladly answered all of our questions. Thanks a lot!

Peter Kaul in Calgary, Alberta

You Kill Bedbugs was great. They came over right away and the heaters were super easy to use and effective. We haven’t had any problems since they came over

The service I got from Steve was really appreciated. He was thorough and explained everything really well. There’s no more bed bugs.

Sierra in Calgary, Alberta

Hi Steve, thanks for your help… We are local landlords and had two properties next door to each other in a townhouse complex where we had an incident of bed bugs. I called Steve and he was most helpful in providing information on bed bugs and the service his company were able to provide. We used the one room heater system. Steve delivered the equipment and patiently went through the set up and use of the heater with my self and my tenant. We were able to heat the rooms to well above 50 degrees. My tenants have not had further bites and we are hopeful the we have eliminated our problem. We would not hesitate to call Steve again in the future. I thought the price was reasonable for the assurance that heat is a very effective method of clean up. Thanks Steve for your time and for your expertise! Have a good day Steve and hoping we do not have to see you again real soon! LOL

What a relief to find something that is not chemical toxic. I handled the heating of my bedrooms by myself. This allowed me to work at my own pace. My contact Steve was polite and informative. I am very happy with everything.

Kathy in Calgary, Alberta

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.
