The Quick Bits
• Prepared customers = faster treatments
• Turn off the A/C the day before
• Don’t heat a house they just cooled down!
Summertime and warmer temperatures are here. Temperatures are up. Bed bugs are biting. You have so many better ways to spend your time than worrying about bed bugs!
I want to turn you on to a major tip that will reduce the time needed for your heat treatment and increase the efficacy... and it won’t cost you a dime! (In fact, it might save your customers a few dollars.)
Have your customer turn off their air conditioner the morning before the heat treatment.
It’s that simple. Let nature preheat your home through the day— and especially overnight— before your bed bug heat treatment.
When you run the A/C the day before and overnight, you start the treatment with a cooler house, often around 68°F. By simply letting the house, its walls, and furnishings remain closer to the warmer, ambient outside temperature, we can be out of your home as much as two hours sooner, letting you get on with enjoying your bed-bug-free life that much sooner.
