Regardless of whether or not you took preventative measures for avoiding bedbugs in hotels, if you are staying at a hotel and you end up with bed bugs in your room, there is always an excellent chance of bringing them home with you; bedbugs are not known as “professional hitchhikers” for no reason.
However, there are several actions that you could take that would drastically reduce the chances of bringing bed bugs home from hotels:
Upon first suspicion of bed bugs in your room, quarantine your clothing, luggage and personal effects in plastic bags and make sure they are sealed to the best of your ability.
Contact management, inform them and ask for an immediate room change.
Before leaving the hotel, hire a bedbug steam cleaning service to steam clean your personal effects, luggage and accessories that cannot be washed or dry cleaned.
Utilize a bed bug dry cleaning service for all garments that require dry cleaning, as well as a bedbug laundry service for the rest of your garments.
If you tend to be a DIY (do it yourself) type of person, don’t take any chances! You can purchase BedBug911’s extremely effective laundry additive formula that will assist in eradicating bed bugs as you do laundry.
In addition, before returning to your residence, you can employ the services of a bedbug detection dog to make sure you are entering bed bug free.
