A rental costs $450 per day. That includes 1 heater, 3 fans, and the power cords. The rental can heat up to 400 square feet in 24 hours. That means it can heat treat two smaller rooms (up to 200 square feet) in 12 hours per room or one larger room (between 200-400 square feet) in 24 hours. If you need to heat treat more than 400 square feet, you will need a multi day rental.

What do I take Out of the Room?
The short answer is nothing. Ideally you want to leave everything in the room to be heat treated. Bed bugs can literally be anywhere in the room, so it’s best to leave everything in the room. If you have anything that will be heat sensitive, you can remove those items, but you must inspect them very carefully to ensure there are no live bed bugs on that item.
How Long does it Take?
The total rental duration is based off of the total square footage of the area that has to be heat treated. The rental can heat up to 400 square feet in 24 hours. That means it can heat treat two smaller rooms (up to 200 square feet) in 12 hours per room or one larger room (between 200-400 square feet) in 24 hours. If you need to heat treat more than 400 square feet, you will need a multi day rental. Watch the video here to learn more:
How do I set up the equipment for a small room vs a large room?
The only difference in setup of the bed bug heat treatment equipment is the size of the ‘circle’ you make with the equipment. In a smaller room (under 200 sq ft), you normally have to ‘bank’ the air off of the walls to make the air move in a circular pattern. In a large room (200-400 sq ft), you put the equipment in the middle of the room and make the ‘circle’ tighter to heat up the air quicker.
How do I prep the room for a Bed Bug Heat Treatment?
Prepping your rooms for a bed bug heat treatment is pretty easy. The first step is to download the Heat Treatment Checklist. Then you need to remove any wall art that is hung with ‘sticky’ attachments. Then move all furniture away from the walls about one foot. Then open closet doors and make sure the closet is NOT jam-packed with stuff. Also, open up dresser drawers to allow air into them. Then, set up the heaters.
