Whether you travel for business or pleasure, you may worry about the cleanliness of the places you’ll be staying. You may be concerned about avoiding bed bugs and wondering what hotels and other hospitality-related businesses do to prevent infestations. Today’s blog from Bed Bug Heaters details some of the tactics hotels and other hospitality businesses use for bed bug pest control.
Ways to Ensure Bed Bug Pest Control
The National Pest Management Association (NPMA) has developed guidelines to help the hospitality industry combat bed bugs. Some of those recommendations include:
Sanitation is the primary way hotels handle bed bug pest control. Regular washing of bed linens and cleaning of hotel rooms keep bed bugs from becoming established in an area.
Another way some hotels and other hospitality businesses try to prevent bed bug problems is by using encasements around mattresses and box springs. These products have been tested to keep bed bugs out of your bedding by creating a seal which they cannot penetrate.
