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

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.

G and E in Edmonton
Thank you, thank you, thank you.  They are gone. The machine was easy to use.  Easy to move and did the trick
I did forget to move a small ikea table and had to use some glue and the candle forgotten in a corner is a melted misshapen blob.
I am so grateful you let me keep it for a couple of days longer. My husband moving from his bed to every other bed in the house made more work.
And I’m pretty sure I will never find everything I moved, again.
Thanks again

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.

I used the bed bug heat kill kit from youkillbedbugs.com and it was a very simple and effective way to treat bed bugs. A good company to work with.

The heat method is more friendly than chemical use.

Caroline D in Edmonton, Alberta

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

The heat treatment that You Kill Bed bugs offers is definitely the way to go for getting rid of bed bugs. The people are very friendly and give you lots of extra tips and facts to help make the set up and treatment easier. The equipment is kept clean and organized and easy to handle. The information guide that comes with it lists all the items that needs to be removed form the room before beginning which is a super big help in saving those items you don’t want damaged. They also give you a handheld inferred thermometer which makes testing the room temperature a piece of cake. Since the treatment and making sure all the laundry was properly handled and cleaned before re entering the room we have had no problems since. The mission was a success! Thank you Shaun and all the members of You Kill Bed bugs Ltd. for helping save my house from this pests.

Hey, just an email to say that as of yet we have not found any damages that what we talked about. Or bugs!!

Miranda in Calgary, Alberta

We used the bed bug heat treatment for the first time and after the first week there was improvement but not all bed bugs were eliminated. We used it the second week and now there are zero of the bed bugs that we see. We had a very bad infestation so maybe that is why. Steve is very accomodating in how he served us. He was flexible and easy to deal with when it came to our situation. Thank you

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

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

Susan 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 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)

We like the heat treatment. I think bed bug is gone now. it is safe equipment. We like it. Thank you

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

Hello Steve,

Thank you very much for The DIY SAFEHEAT KIT. I'm very sensitive to any chemicals and the SAFEHEATER really worked well. There was a big learning curve and rechecking that we had followed the protocol completely. However, we believe we are completely free of all bed bugs now.

We bought mattress covers for mattress and box spring. We invested in the INTERCEPTERS to catch the bugs if any are left. We even had a DETECTOR DOG UNIT come and check and we have no bugs. These things have brought us further peace of mind.

Thanks again,
Barry

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

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 Bedbugs Ltd… Steve, My partner and I were very impressed at the level of professionalism and patience this companies employees had when the treatment was not successful after the first week we were told to keep the equipment for an additional week, no questions asked. Any time I had a concern Steve made himself available to answer my questions and this is why I would recommend these services to anyone dealing with a similar situation. Thank you for your understanding and providing and alternative to harsh chemical treatments.

Sincerely Jullaina S in Calgary, Alberta

Happy new year Shaun. I just want to thank you again. I am doing my saturday cleaning and am reminded that ever since I have put up the carpet tape, i have not seen no signs of bed bugs. I am so relieved and so grateful for your advice. I got your name through the BBB and you deserve your high ranking. Thank you so much and I will be sure to recommend you any time I hear of anyone that needs an exterminator.

Susan in Edmonton, Alberta

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

We had a bed bug problem for several months before we realized what it was. We didn’t want to do a chemical treatment as I was 8 months pregnant, so we found a company that used natural cedar soap. After three unsuccessful treatments we looked into other options and came across You Kill Bed Bugs. The owner is helpful and knowledgeable. He was able to drop off the equipment to us within 2 days of calling him. He set everything up and made sure we knew how to operate it. Here’s to hoping we’re bed bug-free forever! We would recommend this service to anyone.

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

As bed bugs are a growing concern here in Calgary, I feel reassured that You Kill bedbugs equipment is easy to use and effective in the use of killing bed bugs. After 24 hours of using the heating system in one room I had immediately found dead dried out bed bugs!! I would recommend the services of You Kill Bedbugs Ltd to anyone in the future with a bed bug problem. Thanks for everything!!

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.

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

When my tenants told me about the bed bugs they found in my rented condo I researched the internet and found the website of You Kill Bed Bugs. I contacted them and they explained how to get rid of bed bugs and how to put two-sided carpet tape around the perimeter to see if any were coming into the condo from adjoining units. I was able to use the heater and fan to heat the condo rooms to 55C which would kill the bugs and the eggs at the same time. This is much easier than using a chemical spray which could be harmful to persons residing in the rooms. The chemical treatment requires further spraying after the first treatment to be sure all the bugs hatched from eggs previously laid have be killed. It has been four days since I used the heat kit. To date we have not seen any bugs.

M.D. in Edmonton, Alberta

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.
