Fumigation can often save money when compared to the cost of dry cleaning. Additionally, with fumigation, there is absolutely no need to throw out furniture. No damage done.
The fumigant that is typically used is called Vikane gas. It was introduced in 1961 by Dow Agro Science and is approved for use on articles such as clothing, musical equipment, electronics, artwork, furniture, historical documents and other personal items. Because a colorless, tasteless, odorless gas that leaves no residue replaces the oxygen required to sustain life, it effectively kills all bed bugs through the entire life cycle (including the egg stage). These characteristics make it a superior and viable solution for immediate, effective bed bug elimination in conjunction with your traditional pest control treatments.
After fumigation, your belongings will be safely stored until the pest control provider treats your dwelling and verifies that the space is bed bug free. Once this has been determined your fumigated items may be returned.
