If you enjoy sleeping in comfort and own luxurious coverlets that, in addition to looking great, help soothe you to sleep, you must be aware of the increasingly common bed bug problem. No matter how clean you keep your home, you are always at risk of enduring an extremely unpleasant bed bug infestation. Find out how to keep your comfortable coverlet free of bed bugs and what to do in the event that you discover bed bugs in your home.
To prevent a pesky bed bug infestation, it is important that you pay very close attention to your luxury coverlets. Bed bugs are difficult to spot; they are nocturnal and hide away during daylight hours. If you notice mysterious bite marks anywhere on your body, be sure to examine all areas of your coverlet, your bedding and your bed frame. Bed bugs are very small. A fully-grown adult bed bug may only reach about 4 millimeters in length, and its offspring are so small they can sometimes be difficult to see with the naked eye. If you find that you are infected with bed bugs, wash your coverlet and bedding in hot water and vacuum the bed area thoroughly. If this is ineffective, consider calling an exterminator for steam and pesticide treatments.
Keeping your coverlets and bedding free of bed bugs should be a top priority in your home. With proper hygiene and diligent inspections, you can enjoy the luxurious comfort of your bedding, without needing to fear the painful bites caused by bloodsucking bed bugs.
