The Bed Bug Epidemic

A hot topic in the news lately has been the bed bug epidemic.  It has become an even bigger topic for us here at Jiffy Steamer as we have several employees with college age kids.  Fortunately, we here at Jiffy Steamer know that steam is a safe and effective method for relief of any bed bug problem.  Steam is a contact killer meaning that it will kill the bugs and destroy any eggs that have not yet hatched.  A wide steam head is very useful when steaming for bed bugs or dust mites.  Jiffy Steamer has a line of Interchangeable head steamers that would be great for this type of steaming as it would still provide other useful steam heads for garment steaming and cleaning.


This is the interchangeable head kit and hose attachment which is available for use on any J-series Jiffy steamer and is also available for purchase complete with the steamer base unit by visiting our web site at http://www.jiffysteamer.com/   Notice the really wide steam head....this is the type of head that would be use for bed bug control.  You can find more useful information concerning bed bug control from the following online publications.






■When it comes to eliminating bed bugs with steam, the article “Killing Them Softly” provides essential tips. (Most important: use the larger head on the steamer nozzle; Dr. Potter et. al. note that the smaller heads can simply spread live bed bugs around–very bad news.)

■More technical tips on how to use steam to kill bed bugs from Stephen Doggett’s Bed Bug Code of Practice, 3rd Ed. The relevant section is on pages 34-36.
