Having bed bugs can severely damage your business’s reputation. In this day and age, if you have bed bugs in your hotel, motel, college dorms, senior living facilities, or other business where people lodge, and you don’t take the proper action to exterminate them, don’t be surprised if you become the next news story on social media. People won’t think twice about posting photos of their unpleasant bed bug bites and tying them to your name. So, what do you do if you are informed by a guest or resident that you have bed bugs?
First, before you panic and start Googling what the best way to get rid of bedbugs is, take care of your guest. Bed bugs often cause a lot of emotional distress for individuals who have been invaded by them. Apologize, offer them a new room, comp there stay, do something to show them that you care and are sorry for the inconvenience you have caused them. The more you take care of your guest, the less likely you will get blown up on social media, and you just might be able to turn the negative situation into a positive one. Once your guest is taken care of, don’t panic, jump into action and exterminate your unwanted pests with heat — the best way to get rid of bed bugs.
Why is heat the best way to get rid of bed bugs?
If you’ve done a simple Google search to learn how to get rid of bed bugs, we are sure you’ve come across numerous remedies that involve DIY sprays, harsh chemicals, paper towel traps, doing loads of laundry, checking and rechecking for bed bugs, etc. While these blogs are titled as, “Easy Ways To Get Rid Of Bed Bugs,” you can see these easy solutions may not be as effortless or permanent as the title portrays.
