Fighting Bed Bugs with Commercial Carpet Extractors

Commercial Carpet ExtractorsCarpets need regular cleaning to give years of good use. Having a regular carpet cleaning schedule is important to have clean, debris-free carpets. There are many different types of cleaning options available for this purpose. You can find various designs of vacuums, steam cleaners, and carpet extractors that you can choose from. Besides cleaning dirt off the carpets, these cleaning machines can come in handy for removing other unwanted stuff from your house or place of business such as grime, stains, and even bugs. Commercial carpet extractors and commercial steam cleaners are used to control and kill bed bugs in hospitals, dormitories, cruise ships, hotels, apartment buildings, and many other places. So what exactly are these machines and how do you use them to fight bed bugs? Read on to find out.

What are Commercial Carpet Extractors?

Carpets in high-traffic areas tend to get a lot of dust, dirt, and debris stuck in their fibers. While vacuuming with a simple upright vacuum cleaner can remove the dirt sitting on the top, getting inside the fibers to pull out all the grime requires a more rigorous cleaning method. This is where carpet extractors can get the job done. Commercial carpet extractors use a combination of heat, pressure, suction, and a cleaning solution to remove dirt and grime from carpets. These machines have a wand that injects a cleaning solution into the carpet (with heated water and at high pressure if needed). The solution brings up all the embedded grime to the surface of the carpet. All this residual dirt and dirty water is then extracted by a high-powered vacuum, leaving your carpets clean and dry. Carpet extractors can also be used on dirty upholstery and area rugs as well. This deep cleaning method with the use of an extractor can ward off pests and revive and renew your carpets.

How can a Commercial Carpet Extractor Help you in Eliminating Bed Bugs?

Now that we have a good understanding of how a carpet extractor works, let’s take a look at how we can use this machine to fight bed bugs. Bed bugs are small insects that can be found infesting not just carpets, but also beddings, furniture, and clothing. Killing bed bugs can be a daunting task, especially if not approached the correct way. Over time, bed bugs can develop a resistance to chemical pesticides, and thus become even more difficult to kill. But with high steam temperatures, steam cleaning and extraction equipment can effectively kill these pests. Temperatures over 113 degrees Fahrenheit are lethal for bed bugs. Using high steam temperatures in conjunction with simultaneous vacuum extraction will extract the bugs as well as their eggs and waste. While Daimer offers different options for both heated and non-heated commercial carpet extractors, using one that uses hot water will help get rid of bed bugs.

Detail vacuuming should be your first step towards bed bug removal. Vacuuming should be done not just on carpets, but also in closets, in and under cabinets, baseboards, moldings, and any other place where bed bugs might hide or lay eggs. Next, a hot water carpet extractor, such as the line of KleenJet cleaners by Daimer, should be used to deep clean the carpet, and to extract these bugs and their eggs from it. These cleaners can create temperatures as high as 364 degrees Fahrenheit – high enough to kill bed bugs at all stages of development. At Daimer, we ensure that our cleaners are durable with high quality components and the most advanced, patented technology to provide the most effective solution for getting rid of bed bugs. With a Daimer machine, you can rest assured that you are getting the best value and the best cleaner.

When killing bed bugs by using a portable commercial extractor for carpets, make sure you pay special attention to the outer parameters of the carpets. This is where bed bugs tend to hide. Vacuuming and extracting using hot water in these areas will ensure that you get rid of bed bugs for good. You cannot afford to leave any bugs or their eggs unharmed, because unfortunately, a bed bug infestation can resurface quickly as these eggs hatch and the bugs multiply. So using a top quality extractor by Daimer is the perfect solution here. You can use the same extractor to periodically clean the carpets in your home or business, so that they stay clean and do not harbor any pests again. Your carpet extractor can, therefore, give you years of great cleaning use.
