When most people discover that their bed has been infested by bed bugs, the first thing that crosses their mind is throwing away the mattress and giving the bed a thorough cleaning. However, this does not solve the problem.
Even if you disassemble the bed, use the hardest brush you can find to clean each piece, and then buy a new mattress, bed bugs will still find a way to ruin your night. If you discover them on your bed, they are probably in other parts of your house. Just because they are called ‘bed’ bugs, it doesn’t mean that they can only be found on beds.
Therefore, instead of throwing away your mattress, you should contact a pest control exterminator to help you get rid of them once and for all.
