Bed Bug Heat Treatment Systems for Furniture Rental and Second-hand Furniture Outlets
Keep your reputation pest-free with heat!
One couch or rug sold with bed bugs can ruin your reputation and future sales.
Every living organism has a thermal death point. As a pest eradication method, heat has been around for decades. Heat chambers have been designed and manufactured to treat various types of infested items which can be loaded into a designated space for heating purposes. The challenge, however, is much more difficult than just turning on a heater. GreenTech Heat Solutions combines the efficacy of heat with the usefulness of a heat chamber which does not require the purchase of a dedicated heat compartment. In fact, an enclosed delivery or moving truck becomes the chamber so that items do not have to be unloaded into a designated space for heat treatments. Creating this unique mobile heat chamber does not require structurally modifying the truck in any way and can be used with any size truck door opening.
GreenTech Heat Solutions has the engineered application of heat to a truck and its contents for the purpose of killing bed bugs with heat. In order to accomplish the GreenTech Heat Solutions process, we raise air temperatures to between 140°F and 180°F in order to heat the contents to a minimum probe temperature of 120°F which is held for four hours. This is no hotter than temperatures found inside a parked car on a hot summer day.
Blood sucking bed bugs are tough to eradicate. Female bed bugs may lay from 200 to 500 eggs in batches of 50. The eggs are covered with a type of glue and hatch in about ten days. The entire life cycle from egg to adult requires anywhere from five weeks to four months depending on temperature and host availability for blood meals. Traditional bed bug treatments with chemicals can kill the insects it comes in contact with. Even if a chemical treatment kills all the living insects, the eggs hatch, the infestation returns, and the frustrations and problems grow.
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.

The process requires no permanent truck modifications. Since no chemicals are used, your clients can rest assured there will be no side affects from pesticides.
Reduces Cost: The GreenTech Heat Solutions process offers the flexibility of reducing costs by limiting the need to dispose of or replace infested furniture. The system does not require the construction or purchase of a separate heat chamber. Because of the aggressive vortexing created by the GreenTech Heat Solutions process treatments can be shorter in duration than other processes.
Chemical Free: Many people prefer the non-toxic aspect of our treatments. This is especially the case for people with illnesses or allergies, or in homes with pregnant mothers or infants. The reduction of chemical applications is one of the more significant benefits of the GreenTech Heat Solutions system.
Although heat is lethal to all insects and arachnoids, bed bugs are the primary target for the GreenTech Heat Solutions system.
