In our last blog post, we talked about the importance of inspecting any used furniture that you’re considering purchasing for bed bugs, before you make your purchase. When you make a final purchase, it’s impossible to determine whether the bed bugs were picked up before the purchase, or if they were picked up from your home. In the case that you didn’t complete an inspection before you complete your purchase, here are a few things that you can do to minimize the chances of bed bugs spreading throughout your home.

Importance Of Managing The Infestation

While bed bugs may be on one particular piece of furniture, it doesn’t take much for them to spread to other areas in your home. That is why it is incredibly important that you manage the furniture that you find bed bugs on.

Put the Furniture Outside

If there is a particular piece of furniture that you find bed bugs on, one of the best ways to eliminate the chances of them spreading is by putting them outside where they can’t jump onto different pieces of furniture in your house. What takes hundreds of dollars to eliminate from a home, takes only days to spread. As soon as the infestation is noticed, remove it entirely from your home.

Call A Professional

Depending on how long it’s been since you purchased the piece of furniture, this may be your very best option. As we mentioned in the statement above, it’s pretty easy for these bugs to spread to different areas of your home.
