The best bed bug extermination for property managers
Self treat your apartments, condominiums, multi-unit housing, and other buildings — In-house and on your schedule!
A bed bug infestation is far from pleasant, and it is now much more common than it has been in the past. Wise property managers realize that dealing with this problem head-on is much better than ignoring it and hoping it will go away— because a bed bug infestation will only get worse! In the case of bed bugs, quickly getting over the stigma of an infestation and getting on with the solution is more important than wasting time avoiding the problem.
Two options for treatments
You have another tenant who is complaining about bed bugs in their apartment. Now what? Your general pest contract does not cover bed bug treatments. It may cost you $600 or more to have a traditional pesticide treatment done... and it can take a month or more to complete. In addition, you may lose tenants.
When you treat for bed bugs with heat, you can respond almost immediately, reduce costs, and eradicate the bed bug infestation the same day with commercial-grade heat treatment equipment. Self-treat with heat using your own maintenance team. Your tenant can return to the apartment later that same day, and without bed bugs.
While treating for bed bugs, heat can also disinfect and sanitize rooms for odors, bacteria, and viruses. You can deodorize apartments from dog and cat urine, cigar and cigarette smoke, or unpleasant cooking smells. Most of our clients recoup equipment costs as quickly as one month to less than nine months. You can put money back into your budget by not paying an outside service to do a professional heat treatment— do it yourself.
Apply GreenTech Prevent to carpets, mattresses, and upholstered furniture after the heat treatment to keep bed bugs away for up to a year.

I just wanted to let you know that your GreenTech Titan unit is working great for us here in Wilmington DE, and our Philadelphia PA complexes. We followed Michael R. Linford PhD field manual to the tee and we are 25 for 25 on bed bug free apartments. Thank you so much for such a great product which has helped us take control of our bed bug problem. Keep up the great work. Happy in the East Coast.

Laboratory proven to eliminate allergens and microbes
As we developed our technology and sought clinical proof of its efficacy, GreenTech Heat compiled a listing of studies from academic laboratory sources and trusted epidemiological institutions— including the World Health Organization and Health Canada— for many microbials including protoza, bacteria, fungi, and viri. Their findings prove that heat kills organism floating in the air, residing deep in furniture, and sterilize surfaces in one concise treatment.
A single treatment with temperatures only slightly higher and durations slightly longer than an aggressive bed bug treatment will eliminate organisms throughout the treatment area. The following table lists some of the laboratory findings. A complete listing can be found in Bed Bug Heat Treatment Field Guide.

Heat is a proven disinfectant. Medical professionals trust heat to sterilize surgical instruments. When conducting a microbial treatment, heat and hold the treatment zone between 66°C/150°F and 71°C/160°F and maintain temperatures until the hardest-to-heat locations maintains that temperature for 3 hours as indicated with a temperature probe.
Because of the amounts of energy produced, propane-fired Titan heaters require someone onsite throughout the treatment actively monitoring temperatures and airflow.

When properly applied, our professional-grade equipment consistently provides a 100% kill, 100% of the time, every time. Modern bed bug populations are highly resistant to the insecticides used for their control. Heat is known to be a very effective bed bug killer and it can be used in many different ways to treat infestations. To improve your success, training and certification are included with all equipment packages.
Because of the convected energies created by the GreenTech Heat heaters, we do not recommend residents re-enter the property until temperatures have cooled to 85°F.
