Cleaning services may be needed to tackle bed bug infestation
Category: Mattress Cleaning
According to pest control firm Rentokil, the number of cases it has had to deal with in the past year has soared, the Express reports.
It claimed to have witnessed 38 per cent more incidents of bed bugs last year than in 2009.
While keeping on top of domestic cleaning chores can help to prevent the problem, some people may find their attempts futile and could be forced to draft in experts.
The insurgence is thought to have been aided by the increasing number of people travelling to and from the UK on a regular basis, as the pests are transported unknowingly in clothing and luggage.
"High levels of hygiene and deep cleaning, including washing bed linen at a minimum 60C, will help to keep numbers under control, along with the use of DIY products," Rentokil technical director Savvas Othon told the publication.
Recently, the news provider also advised people to check their hotel beds before hitting the sack to ensure they do not have any unwanted guests when they return home.
