A clothes steamer may seem like an obvious choice for killing bedbugs. But there are some things to keep in mind when using it. First, it must be high-quality. The steamer should be at least a gallon-sized model and should have a steam volume control. Second, a clothes steamer cannot reach the high temperatures necessary to kill bedbugs.
Another advantage of a clothes steamer is its portability. Most steamers are portable, and they can be stored in a suitcase. This is especially useful if you travel a lot. You can also use it on the bed when you get back home because it can be carried easily.
When using a clothes steamer to kill bedbugs, make sure to read the manual. Many of them contain instructions about how to use them. For example, some allow you to adjust the wetness of the steam. The drier the steam, the better. You should also check the heating time of the steamer. It can vary from 30 seconds to fifteen minutes. Choosing the one with the fastest heating time will allow you to do the job faster.
Depending on the severity of your infestation, you may need more than one treatment. If you’re dealing with a large infestation, you should use a more powerful treatment. Chemical agents such as Delta Dust, Crossfire, or Apprehend can be effective against these blood-sucking pests.
