FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
Bed bugs are parasitic insects that feed exclusively on blood, with a preference for blood from humans. A number of health effects may occur including, skin rashes, psychological effects and allergic symptoms.
Adult bed bugs are often light brown to reddish brown in color. They are presented in a flattened, oval shape and have no wings. Adults may grow to 4-5mm in length and 1.5-3mm in width.
Newly hatched nymphs are translucent, lighter in color and become darker as they molt and mature. Bed bugs may be mistaken for other insects such as booklice, small cockroaches or carpet beetles.
- Blood stains, spots, streaks from crushed bugs on bed sheets
- Rusty or tiny black spots of excrement on sheets, mattresses, bed clothes, and walls
- Eggs – when ready to hatch – are the size of a piece of rice
- Egg shells/shredded skins
- An offensive sweet musty odor when infestations are severe
- Bites on skin; pets scratching bites
Before an exterminator can eradicate an infestation of bed bugs, your home has to be properly prepared. This involves a lot of hard work. Furniture needs to be moved, clothing bagged, and strict cleaning procedures must be followed before an exterminator can fumigate the infested area. The preparation process can take hours – sometimes even days.
If the process is not done properly, the chances of the bed bugs being completely eradicated are greatly reduced. And, while most exterminators give you instructions on how to do it yourself, they can often be confusing.
There are also serious health risks to consider when preparing your home yourself. These issues may include skin rashes on your face, back, arms, neck, and hands. This doesn’t take into account the frustration and psychological stress you feel knowing bed bugs have invaded your personal space.
Why go it alone? Let our team of highly-trained professionals help you take back control of your home and put a stop to bed bugs once and for all. Leave the second guessing behind; our tried-and-tested process ensures an exterminator can eradicate the bed bugs quickly and effectively.
With RTM Cleaning Solutions safety comes first. That’s why our process is rigorous, strict, and in accordance with Alberta Occupational Health and Safety standards. It’s also why our entire team is outfitted with PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) at all times.
This includes protective gloves, Tyvek suits, boot covers, booties, hairnets and safety glasses. This prevents contact with the infectious agent or items that may contain the infectious agent, by creating a barrier between the worker and the infectious material.
Thanks to intensive training and education, our team has helped thousands of Albertans prepare their homes for the extermination of bed bugs!
Hoarding is the persistent difficulty discarding or parting with possessions, regardless of their value. Hoarding behaviour can take its toll — emotionally, physically, socially, financially, and even legally — for both the person hoarding and their loved ones.
Hoarding isn’t easy to talk about. It can leave those affected feeling isolated and alone. And with so many things in such a tight space, it’s even harder to know what to do next.
