The Thermal Remediation® process allows you or your residents to leave practically everything in the home or other treated areas - clothing, bedding, furniture, TV, computers: almost everything can be left in place. As a matter of fact, it is important that they do leave everything in place, because bed bugs or their eggs can be in or on anything, and our bed bug exterminators don't want to let any survive.

How the Process Works

Gregory's Thermal Remediation® Heat Treatment equipment is a self-contained system that utilizes space heaters and monitoring devices which are powered by the system and monitored throughout the process to achieve a safe and effective level of heat within the treated areas. The heat kills all stages of Bed Bugs: eggs, young, and adults.

A heat treatment involves the following steps:

  1. The entire treatment area is heated to 120° F. or higher. Once the heat in the treated area reaches the optimum temperature, it is maintained for 4 hours in order to ensure complete eradication of the infestation. The hot air is circulated using fans, and temperatures are monitored throughout the treatment area(s) during the process.
  2. An application of residual insecticides may be made into the cracks and crevices where any surviving Bed Bugs might be crawling. In most cases, this process eliminates all Bed Bugs within the treated area(s).
  3. After the treatment is complete, the Gregory Specialists will disassemble and remove the equipment and do a final inspection to make sure all Bed Bugs are gone.
