One of the safest treatment for bed bugs options available on the market is the use of steam cleaners to kill the little pests. It is safe as long as you follow a few safety rules. Never put your hands in front of the steamer bit as you can get burned by doing that, try to get a dry steam cleaner to use, this will cut down on the amount of wetness left behind. Follow all the safety instructions that come with the steam cleaner.
When using a steam cleaner to kill bed bugs you should be aware that it is the heat that kills all stages of bed bugs life from eggs to adults. The bugs cannot survive temperatures of over 46centigrade so make sure your steam cleaner reaches at least that temperature.

While it is not difficult to carry out the treatment of bed bugs infestations yourself it can be time consuming. You have to be able to recognise that you have bed bugs, they tend to leave blood smears and fecal stains on bedding and areas they inhabit, you may also find the shed skins and live bugs. The live bugs look a bit like small flat apple seeds and the eggs look like grains of rice.
Once you discover bed bugs you need to clean the room and all objects in it. Launder all linens at as high a temperature as possible, you can also tumble dry items on high to kill bed bugs, be sure the tumble dryer is cleaned after in case the bugs fall out during this.
Next clear the room of all clutter, bag up any old stuff you want to get rid of and dispose of it properly.
After that clean the room thoroughly with a vacuum cleaner, get into all the nooks and cranny’s and get rid of all the loose bugs and eggs as possible. When done dispose of the bag in a sealed plastic bag and dispose of in the trash, also clean the vacuum to make sure there are no live bugs stuck in it.
The next step is to buy or hire a dry steam cleaner and thoroughly clean the room with it, the bed bugs cannot survive high temperatures at all stages from eggs to adults.
Once you have treated the room with steam go round and seal up all cracks and holes you can find that bed bugs may like to live.
