How to Prepare for a Bed Bug Inspection

Your bed bug exterminator will very likely provide you with a list of actions you need to complete to prepare for bed bug inspection. Common prep items include:

  1. Removing linens from bedding and other fabrics from your bedrooms, and washing them in the hottest water possible.
  2. Removing all personal items that are on furniture or on the floor.
  3. Removing everything from closets and drawers, and possibly removing books from shelving.
  4. Cleaning or laundering all clothing in the hottest water possible and storing them in clean storage bags for up to two weeks after treatment.
  5. Moving items and furniture away from the walls to give access to baseboards.

During the Inspection
