How the Forza Steam Cleaner Can Be Used to Kill Bed Bugs
Bedbugs are a growing problem all over North America, in various climates and in various settings. Individual homes and the hospitality industry are struggling to mitigate and eliminate the problem because bedbugs are becoming increasingly resilient. In fact, “super bedbugs” are even becoming resistant to common forms of pesticide, making them even more difficult to eliminate. At Vapamore, we know how important cleaning and disinfecting is and our steam cleaning machines are more than capable of eliminating bacteria and leaving something spotless, but our machines are also capable of actually killing bedbugs, as well as their eggs, and completely eliminating bedbugs better than chemical-filled pesticides.
The Vapamore MR-1000 Forza is capable of producing a steam that is so hot (between 210-240 degrees Fahrenheit), that pests such as bedbugs, dust mites, and other allergens are killed on contact. Steam is actually an incredibly effective method of pest elimination because it kills the pest and its eggs, as well as any bacteria or viruses. And, best of all, it does so without leaving behind any harmful chemical residue on surfaces or absorbed into upholstery, mattresses or more. Bedbugs infest and hide in things such as bedding, sofas, furniture, pillows, carpet, cracks and crevices that can easily be damaged by pesticides and other chemicals but steam is capable of cleaning and disinfecting without damaging. The MR-1000 Forza comes with a clothes/fabric tool, complete with a cotton cover that is ideal for treating bedding, furniture, pillows and carpet areas around bed posts and base boards. Simply start by installing he supplied cotton cover on the clothes – fabric/smooth surface tool, apply light consistent pressure and slowly pass it along the surface at a rate of 1’’ per second to ensure the area being treated has a chance to come to full temperature, killing pests and their eggs.
Further, the floor cleaning head with micro fiber cover works well for treating large surface areas such as bedding, furniture and carpet areas. Again, apply the cover and move at a rate of 1’’ per second so that each area reaches a high enough temperature to kill pests and their eggs. It is important to concentrate the steam directly on the area to be treated with as minimal distance as possible. If you move too far away it may not be as effective at killing pests and eggs. The attachments are ideal for a variety of surface areas even the tiniest cracks and crevices. This is why the MR-1000 Forza is such an incredibly investment. The machine comes with a multitude of attachments to tackle any cleaning or disinfecting task in or around your home or office. It is the ultimate cleaning machine and will wipe our bedbugs and even super bedbugs without any chemicals.
