Can steam cleaners and steam machines kill bed bugs?
Steam cleaners have become very popular cleaning utensils over the past decade and are growing in popularity. But will steam cleaners be a good way to get rid of bed bugs?
Will Steam Kill Bed Bugs?
Steam is a direct contact kill of bed bugs, which means you will have to hit the bed bug with steam to kill it. Steamers will kill bed bugs and their eggs as soon as the steam hits it, which makes it a popular tool with bed bug exterminators.
While steam may seem like the ideal way to get rid of bed bugs, it is really only good to use for small to moderate bed bug infestations. Normally steam machines for home use don't produce enough steam to make it a fast process, and therefore it could take several hours to completely steam a bed covered in bed bugs. Because of this it is best to use steam cleaners with other bed bug control methods.
