Top Rated Air Purifier Brands: Sometimes You Get What You Pay For—Sometimes You Don’t!

When it comes to portable air purifiers, sometimes ratings can help and sometimes they don’t. Truth is, many times an air cleaner that is ‘top-rated’ sounds like quality, but there’s no information as to ‘who’ gave it top ratings. And unfortunately, often the ratings are given by people paid to give ratings, which doesn’t help much. Then you have some air purifiers with outright unsubstantiated air purification claims plastered all over the TV and in printed media.
With all that 'stuff' mixed in, it’s tough to figure which of the top-rated air purifier brands offer real quality and value and which air cleaner units are more hype than help. And you’ll know for sure whether you got a good deal or not when you see what effect the air purifier has, if any, on your allergies, asthma, etc.
In fact, a lot of air purifier and other product ‘branding’ or creating mass recognition, more than anything else, is simply a product of heavy advertising on TV, radio, flyers, and has little or nothing to do with quality.. Here’s an example: if you ask most people what name comes to mind when you say ‘air purifier’, most will say ‘Oreck’, which has been heavily advertised for years on late night infomercials and is now sold in 4500 stores by Walmart. And since most people feel more comfortable buying something that seems ‘familiar’, they somehow are more inclined to believe the statements

Oreck makes a lot of claims about air cleaning power. Truth is, however, Oreck air purifiers are ok, but they actually rank much lower in performance, consumer satisfaction, and value than many other brands of air purifiers, according to Consumer Reports and other air purifier review companies. So much for the ‘big name’ being the safest, best air purifier buy. Even inexpensive air purifiers have been advertised heavily and achieved a ‘big name’—but that doesn’t mean they are a good value or will help you adequately control the indoor air quality in your home, room or office.
So how do you know what you’re getting if you can’t depend on the advertising? Well, many times, what helps more when choosing between one quality air purifier and another for your home, room or office is looking at several key factors about the air purifier company and the air cleaner itself so that you can get a good sense of actual quality level and value. Here are a few tips:
First, take a look at how long the portable air purifier manufacturer or company has been in business, and check out the Better Business Bureau and see how many claims they’ve had, what their overall ranking is. Next, compare how long the warranty is, and ask yourself ‘does it exclude a lot of things or does it seem like you’re really covered pretty well? Read the fine print—that’s where you find the important information. And, check out air purifier reviews from independent third-party reviewers and Consumer Reports only—any other ‘ratings’ or ‘reviews’ tend to be from people that are paid to give ratings, including the little individual ‘reviews’ shown under many products online. Sad but true.
Next, take a look at the air cleaner’s construction—what is the air purifier made of? The best portable electronic air purifiers usually have a chassis or frame that is made either completely or mostly from steel, not plastic. Check the fan components—are they plastic or made of metal? Obviously, an air cleaner with metal components is better. And oddly, the units that have steel construction and components tend to have longer warranties…hmmm, imagine that! 
Next we need to take a look at the air purifier’s filters or air filtration system and see if 1) is it a true HEPA filter (not HEPA–style), 2) does it have a pre-filter (very important for getting normal life out of HEPA and carbon filters), and 3) does it have a carbon filter ? Check to see how much actual activated carbon is in it, i.e. in pounds? When it comes to carbon, here is the truth—if the filter does not have at least a pound or two of activated carbon (and preferably granular carbon , though crushed carbon will work), it isn’t going to remove many odors, smoke or other gas or chemical based pollutants–and not for very long. Activated carbon filters get ‘used up’ or become saturated and how long that takes depends on the level of indoor pollutants and how much carbon there is in the filter. General rule of thumb for carbon air filtration: more is better.
At Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we take pride in providing the very best air cleaners brands, replacement filters, and quality information to help you reduce or eliminate allergies & asthma, and have the best indoor air quality possible in your homes, rooms, and offices.

HEPA & Carbon Air Purifier Pre-Filters: Why It’s Important to Use Them…And Replace Them Regularly

Many of the best air purifiers have pre-filters in their filtrations system, which is important because prefilters stop the large particles from clogging up HEPA and carbon block filters prematurely—and causing frequent, expensive HEPA and carbon filter changes. But there’s something other than the expense of the extra filter replacements that we need to be concerned about: improper air filtration.
Often, home owners purchase an air purifier that doesn’t have a prefilter and this can be bad for several reasons: 1) obviously, the HEPA and carbon filters are going to get clogged quickly without one, causing you to have to replace them, but 2) the bigger issue is that when the HEPA and carbon filters clog up quickly, polluted air begins to go around the filter because it cannot get through the filter, which causes polluted air to be blown around even more that it would without an air purifier because it has a fan behind it. Does that make sense?
When you have an increase in circulation of polluted air, you almost always have an increase in allergy, asthma or other respiratory symptoms. If the air purifier does have a pre-filter and you don’t change them every three months or so, the same thing begins to happen: the prefilter can clog up to a point that air begins to backflow and go around the filter, creating the same hazardous poor indoor air quality situation. Now, dust, dirt, mold spores, and more that would have likely remained on the floor is now being sucked up by the air purifier and being blown around and inhaled. Not good.
So, here are a couple of notes regarding air purifier pre-filters: 1) if you have an air purifier that does not have a pre-filter, either get an air cleaner that does have one or purchased some electrostatic cut-to-fit pre-filter material from your local department store and place in front of the HEPA & carbon filters, 2) if your air purifier does have pre-filters, be sure to replace them at least every 3 months to maximize the life of your HEPA and carbon filters, and ensure proper indoor air quality. And, if possible, be sure to buy replacement HEPA and carbon prefilters from the air cleaner manufacturer or authorized dealer if you can to ensure proper fit. The last thing you want is air going around the pre-filter and again, clogging the HEPA and carbon filters prematurely.
At Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we sell the manufacturer-made proper HEPA pre-filters and carbon pre-filters for several top air purifier brands such as Austin Air (HM400 series), Aller Air and others. And since we are an online store, we don’t have the overhead of traditional stores so we pass those savings on to you with cheap discount prices and free shipping every day. If you have any questions about air purification, pre-filters, or anything indoor air quality related, give us a call at 1-800-701-2513. We have air quality experts standing by to help!

Health Benefits of Activated Carbon Air Filters—They Can Do More Than You Think

There has been a lot of discussion lately regarding whether activated carbon (charcoal) air filters really do provide any measurable health benefits. Well, the answer according to research is definitely ‘yes’, but for the sake of our health, we’d better take their word for it and err on the side of caution. Why? The type of indoor air pollutants that activated carbon removes are of the chemical, gas, and odor nature, and it’s those types of pollutants that can cause a range of problems, both in the short term and over time—problems such as allergies, asthma, COPD, heart disease, cancer and more.
Ever wonder how some illnesses or just ‘looking older’ just seems to ‘suddenly’ appear, out of nowhere? Truth is, research shows that most illnesses, bodily dysfunction, even aging don’t just ‘show up’ one day. They are the result of a buildup of pollution in the body, and over time, this pollution gets in the way of normal cell function. And when cells don’t function properly, they change, lose their shape, and often die. And if the air we breathe on a daily basis isn’t being cleaned of the chemical and vapor-based pollutants found in most homes and offices with a quality air purifier with activated carbon (charcoal) filters, that means our bodies are absorbing those pollutants that cause our cells to change and die off prematurely. And that means, at some point, after enough cells have mutated or started working improperly, we’re going to have health problems.
The good news is that most of these health problems can be prevented by properly cleaning up or indoor air, specifically by using activated carbon or charcoal air filters. Why indoor air? Well, since we breathe about 3000 gallons of air per day and it’s been proven that most homes & offices have polluted air–if we use a quality air purifier with an activated carbon filter to absorb the toxins, our bodies won’t have to absorb them. Does that mean that we might feel better, look younger, have fewer allergies, asthma and other health problems? Recent research says ‘yes’! 
And if you have an air purifier or filtration system in your room, home, or office, it’s very important to buy the replacement carbon air filters for the units on a regular basis. That’s because as carbon or charcoal absorbs pollutants, eventually the carbon becomes ‘saturated’, meaning that it has lost its ‘stickiness’ and can’t absorb any more, which means it will now allow the chemical and gas polluted air to pass directly through—and get blown out into the air even more than it would if you didn’t have an air cleaner! Most people don’t realize this, but not changing a carbon air filter can actually increase allergies, asthma, and can speed the development of serious health problems, again, simply because polluted air is being circulated more.
Bottom line? For the sake of your health, disease prevention, even premature aging prevention, our recommendations are 1) if you don’t have a quality air purifier or carbon air filtration system in your home, room, office or anywhere you spend time indoors, definitely get one or as many as required to thoroughly clean the air, and make sure it has a good amount of activated carbon (Blueair, Austin Air or Aller Air brands are the best), and 2) if you DO have an air purifier with a quality carbon air filter, be certain to buy the replacement filters on time, or sooner to prevent polluted air from being blown around. Carbon air filters are very powerful for preventing illness and safeguarding the health of your family—but only if replaced regularly and used properly. Also, be sure that your air purifier has enough carbon in the filter to handle the square footage of your indoor area for at least a year.
Cheap carbon air filters typically don’t have enough carbon to handle much square footage, or anything. And if there’s too little carbon, it will get used up quickly and can cause you to have to replace the filters too often, which can be a hassle, and costly. And that also means, if you need more than one air purifier with carbon filters to handle the square footage of your home, room or office, definitely get what you need the first time as you’ll get cleaner air, and it will save you money in the long run. And this is even more critical for industrial or commercial air filtration situations: make sure to get an air cleaner with the output capacity and enough carbon to handle the situation properly—your health, your employees’ health, and preventing OSHA fines could depend on it.
At Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we sell the best replacement activated carbon purifier filters for both home and industrial or commercial air filtration systems, for all the best air purifier brands like Aller Air, Austin Air, Blueair, Electrocorp, Tiger, Winix. And since we are an online store and don’t have the overhead of traditional stores, we pass those savings on to you with cheap discount prices and free shipping every day.

HEPA Air Filters: A Way to Live Longer? YES!

Most of us are looking for ways to feel better, stronger, look younger, live longer, etc. Most doctors agree and it’s pretty much common knowledge that what you eat and drink can have a lot to do with all of that. Well, since the EPA recently classified indoor air quality in the top 5 threats to our health, and we know that impurities or pollution in general causes our bodies to break down sooner than they should, it makes sense that if we’re breathing cleaner air, our cells and our bodies will last longer, and could ultimately help us feel better…and live longer.
How can we make sure we’re breathing cleaner air? First, if you don’t have a portable air purifier for your home, room, or where you work that has a true HEPA filter, get one and use it wherever you spend time indoors. If you already have a HEPA air cleaner, make certain to buy replacement filters on a regular basis. Why? Because certified HEPA air filters are designed to remove dangerous household particles such as dust, mold, pet dander, fibers, bacteria, etc—particles that have been documented to cause so much inflammation and disease in the body, and it’s been shown in studies that over 90% of homes and offices have indoor air pollution. And if you don’t replace the HEPA filters, two main things happen: the air purifier has to work harder which increases your electric bill and wears on the air purifier, and 2) once the HEPA filter is clogged, the polluted air will go everywhere but through the filter, out the sides, front, around the seals, etc—and that means polluted air is being circulated and inhaled more than if you didn’t have an air purifier, which increases allergies and lowers indoor air quality, which will cause our body tissues to ‘wear out’ quicker because the body is having to use up resources to combat inflammation.
HEPA air filters can make a world of difference for allergy reduction, too, almost immediately, so if you have allergies or other respiratory ailments, definitely consider getting an air cleaner with a true HEPA air filter. If you have indoor pets and have a HEPA air purifier already, it’s even more important to remember to replace those HEPA air purifier filters. That’s because pet dander has a lot of concentrated disease and allergy-causing elements (bacteria, viruses, and more) in it and will can cause serious health problems quickly if the filter becomes clogged and polluted air is being blown around instead of being filtered. With a clogged HEPA filter, first you will likely notice an increase in allergies, then more of a state of overall inflammation, and over time, the body and tissues become worn down from dealing with unnecessary inflammation, which is no fun and costs you more money for extra allergy medications, etc.
And guess what one of the main things that are being attributed to premature aging right now—inflammation. Prevent the inflammation—live longer, is pretty much what is being said in medical circles now. And you can really help prevent this inflammation with true HEPA filters. A word of caution, however: don’t buy cheap air purifiers that feature ‘HEPA-style’ filters, as these filters are not certified to remove 99.97% of particles down to 0.3 microns in size. And don’t buy cheap HEPA filters from an after-market supplier, as it won’t fit as well or clean the air properly. Buy the HEPA air filters from your air purifier manufacturer to ensure proper performance and ‘indoor air safety’. Just like clean water, if you make sure you’re breathing clean air, you’ll feel better and most likely look younger for many more years than a lot of people.
At Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we sell the best replacement air cleaner filters for some of the best air purifier brands—Aller Air, Austin Air, Blueair, Winix, Tiger, Vapor Eze, and Electrocorp, for both home and commercial applications. And since we are an online store, we don’t have the overhead of traditional stores so we pass those savings on to you with low prices and free shipping every day.

Before You Buy a House or Rent an Apartment–Test the Air Quality to Prevent Illness!

Spring is here and many people are moving, or looking for a house or apartment to buy or rent. And while buying a house or renting an apartment, moving to a new place can be exciting, you might be moving into a poor indoor air quality situation, which can seriously affect your health.
Unfortunately, indoor air quality is now listed by the EPA in the top 5 major threats to our health, along with heart disease and cancer. And since Americans are spending over 90% of their time indoors, that means that of the average of 3000 gallons of air that most humans inhale each day, about 2700 gallons of that air polluted with common household pollutants like dust, dust mites, mold, chemical residues, chemicals from treated wood, carpets, almost all of which have been shown to cause some form of allergy or other illness. By the way—did you know that mold causes cancer? 
It’s true. Mold has recently been shown to actually be a stronger cancer-causing agent than many even carcinogens found in cigarette smoke. Google mold and cancer and you’ll see what we mean. That’s reason enough to buy an air purifier or air filtration system for any home or apartment for sure, but certainly if you’re thinking about buying a house or renting an apartment (especially students), do yourself, your health (and your grades!) a favor and buy a cheap indoor air test kit to make sure that the ‘air is all clear’ before you move in.
Indoor air quality test kits  have become very simple and easy to use in recent years and they can quickly tell you if a house or apartment is safe for you to live in. These kits will test for everything from mold to lead to radon, fiberglass fibers and more, and the best air test kits use a simple test strip that you rub on a surface and mail to a lab for accurate results in 3-5 days. Even if you're moving to a new office, new job, etc--you can use air test kits to see if there's anything floating around before you take the job!
We recommend BHC, LLC or Building Health Check test kits for their accuracy and fast processing time. Many other cheap air quality test kits cost a little less, but they are not as accurate and turn-around times are slower, which may get in the way if you’re thinking about placing an offer on a house—you might lose the house to someone else while waiting on the test if the processing takes too long. BHC offers all kinds of affordable air quality test kits equipment and supplies for whatever level of air quality testing you may require, for home and industrial air testing, as well. Don’t skimp with a cheaper air test kit, however—that test kit might miss something that could leave you and your family at risk of cancer or other serious illnesses, and that’s a risk we can’t afford to take.
Here at Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we sell only BHC air quality airborne pollutant detection kits because they are proven and used worldwide for quality air tests at an affordable price, with easy to use test kits you can use at home, in apartments, offices, building and more, and get fast, accurate results from an accredited lab. If you have a particular indoor air quality concern and don’t see the air test kit for it, let us know. We either have that test kit or can create one for your situation!

Portable Air Quality Monitors / Particle Counters: A Great Tool for HVAC Companies, Contractors, Sales Agents!

Need to prove that some type of particle is floating in the air, or that your air cleaning systems have effectively removed them, i.e. air filtration system or HVAC / air conditioning installations? Need a way to show particle counts on a computer screen during sales or other presentations? Dylos DC 1100 portable ambient air quality monitors offer an affordable way to do all of that, and more, with lab-grade accuracy and ease of use.
More and more professionals are using Dylos DC1100 professional laser particle counters at work sites, construction sites, HVAC / air filtration system installations, and more. Why? Because these air monitors are easy to use, portable, and show clearly and accurately (in seconds) how many particles are in a given room, and what sizes they are. This allows you to know if you filtration systems are adequate—or not, and possibly ‘why not’—i.e. if the particles are too small for the filter pore size, they’ll go right through. That would tell you that you need a filter with a smaller pore size.
Or, an air monitor can tell you if you have an increase in particles in a certain room or area, possibly indicating a leak or source of unfiltered air or pollutants. Without an air monitor, you might never be able to find out where the pollutants are coming from. Home owners with severe allergies can benefit greatly from using air monitors to test the air regularly and make sure their air filters or purifiers are doing their jobs, etc. Sales people selling air filtration systems often use Dylos DC 1100 series air monitors with PC interface to clearly show before and after graphs on a projection screen that their products have removed the particles, etc.
Even legal professionals are using air quality monitors to test indoor air quality and prove conclusively that certain concentrations of particles, particle sizes, etc either are or are not present for certain cases. For industrial or commercial uses where employees are exposed to hazardous particles, an air monitor can be very important, letting you know when or if hazardous particle counts are increasing, possibly indicating air cleaners are not working properly. Or, for outdoor events, pollen and other particle counts can also be monitored if necessary.
There are so many uses for air monitors that many homeowners are buying them as well to monitor air quality for various applications. Why Dylos DC 1100 series air monitors? Quality, performance, and an excellent track record with tons of testimonials. Dylos is simply one of the best portable laser particle counter values on the market. And whether you’re a pro or a home owner, they are easy to use and can quickly let you know what is floating around in the air…or not!
Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com is proud to offer a full line of Dylos DC 1100 Series air monitors.

Ultrasonic Humidifiers: A Way To Feel More Energized, Through Better Hydration?

A lot of people deal with daily fatigue, especially if you’re active. And a lot of that fatigue is from the stresses of the day, kids, work, bills, physical activity, etc. However, did you know that over 60% of fatigue symptoms are often related to low grade-dehydration? Studies have recently shown that over 80% of Americans regularly live in a state of mild to moderate dehydration, especially if you live in a climate or a home where the humidity is very low and don’t have a humidifier or vaporizer to add humidity.
Maybe we don’t think about it, don’t want to, or don’t have enough time to think about drinking more water. Whatever the reason, one major result of not having enough water in the body is slower moving, thicker blood, and less oxygen in the tissues, which often translates to low energy—since we get about 30% of our oxygen from the water we drink, and oxygen level has a lot to do with energy. More water equals more oxygen, and usually that equals more energy.
So how do we get a little more water into our system? There are two main things you can do, other than drinking water—one extra shower per day, and getting one or more ultrasonic room humidifiers. The extra shower, either morning or night, will not only add 8-12 ounces of water to your body by absorption, but it will also help cleanse toxins from your skin (make sure you have a shower filter, however, to make sure the water is as clean as possible). The other thing to do that will have a great effect is buying one or more ultrasonic humidifiers. An ultrasonic cool mist humidifier can easily add another few ounces of water to your body, and thereby more oxygen, and that will give you more energy. Don’t believe water is that effective for energy? Take this test: next time you’re fatigued, get a 12 oz glass of pure water and drink it, then see how you feel in about 15 minutes. If you’re honest, you’ll notice a boost in energy and actually may find it hard to sit still. That’s also what a good humidifier can do, as well. 
A small, top-rated ultrasonic home humidifier is a great way to improve skin tone, as well—because when the skin is hydrated, the skin around the face, throat, nose, etc, usually appears more plump and youthful looking. Why ultrasonic humidifiers? Cool mist humidifiers don’t use a heater to create the mist—they use high frequency vibration to atomize the water into vapor that’s released into the air. This means they use a lot less energy, and without a heating element (as with warm mist humidifiers), there’s no chance of fire. 
And most ultrasonic humidifiers are filter-less, which means no filters to change. All you have to do is use purified water and you’ll be putting clean, pure water into the air, which will help keep you hydrated, which as we’ve already discussed, will help boost energy and help you keep young looking skin tone. And if you like aromatherapy, a cool mist humidifier can add essential oils to the air as well to freshen the air, and actually help keep any bacteria or viruses in the air under control! And don’t forget to consider a quality air purifier for your home as well—pure air helps keep us young looking, too! And the best part is–small ultrasonic humidifiers are cheap, usually not more than about $40. Plus, they’re portable so you can take them with you when you travel!
At Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com, we currently only sell the best ultrasonic cool mist humidifiers and waterless vaporizers, but we will soon be offering several other types of humidifiers for homes, rooms, offices and industrial use, to include evaporative and warm mist types, all of which will be filter-less or filter-free.

UV Ultraviolet Light Air Cleaners: A Way to Breathe Easier in Your Home in 24-48 Hours.

Ultraviolet light units mounted in home HVAC ducts have had mixed reviews over the years with respect to their effectiveness. In most cases, however, where air cleaning effectiveness was in question, it is because the bulbs were not full 36 watt laboratory strength, and UV bulbs were not placed in the both before the coil and after the coil for maximum effectiveness. In reality, there are lots of studies that show conclusively that the best HVAC UV air purifiers do work very well, provided that they are used correctly.
When you place the UV bulbs in both locations, mold, bacteria and viruses are received two doses of high-level ultraviolet light. Whatever sub-micronic particles or organisms that are being pulled in from the air in the home or building will be treated with that UV light and a very high percentage of them will be destroyed, so as not to ‘infect’ the cooling coil with fresh live mold spores and other germs. This will help keep the coil cleaner, as it is often the greatest source of air contamination because it’s always wet and being hit by pollutants that need moisture to thrive and multiply.
The other set of UV lights placed in the HVAC or air conditioning duct work after the coil will kill any organisms that might still be releasing from the coil as air is blown across to cool it, again provide that the bulbs are at least 36 watts and preferably a two bulb system for maximum disinfection. If you install allergy grade filters in your home’s central air conditioning system and put UV light air cleaners (two bulb system) in both before and after duct work, you should notice a sharp decrease in any coughing or sneezing you may have been experiencing-and most people that do this say they notice they are breathing and sleeping easier and better in as little as 24-48 hours.
There are several things to watch for, however, when purchasing an ultraviolet light air purifier system. First, again, the bulb strength must be 36 watts or higher. The successful studies all found that the best UV light air cleaners use 36 watt bulbs or higher as this provides enough ‘light units’ to kill various organisms successfully. Lower quality or cheaper UV light systems often have low wattage bulbs and they are simply not going to do much good. You also want a plastic or nylon mounting system—those with metal mounts tend to rust and need replacing. And finally, be sure to replace your UV bulbs at the time recommended by the manufacturer, rather than peeking in and taking a look. UV light can permanently damage your eyes, so when installing replacement UV bulbs, turn the units off, replace the bulbs, close the duct work access door, then turn the unit back on.
Air Purifiers and Cleaners.com is proud to offer only the very best quality UV light air purification systems with 36 watt laboratory strength bulbs for maximum ability to kill mold, bacteria, viruses and other micro-pollutants often found in home indoor air. Since we are an online store we don’t have the overhead of traditional retail stores, so we pass those savings on to you with cheap discount prices and free shipping.

Got Bed Bugs? Now There’s A Safe, Non-Toxic Spray For That!

Are you getting bed bug bites on a regular basis? Tried chemicals, repellents, and other treatments that don’t work? Well, don’t give up—you do need to stop them, not just to save your skin, prevent rashes, and all the aggravation, but also to prevent the spread of disease and infections in your home and living spaces. Bed bugs feed on human and animal blood, and for that reason alone, they can transmit all sorts of bacteria and viruses that you and your family & pets don’t need.
Chemical pesticides used to so-called ‘exterminate’ or control bed bugs often don’t work completely, and it leaves your bedroom and house smelling like insecticide, which is toxic for humans and pets to breathe. Repellents aren’t very effective, either, because the bed bugs will simply find another way to get around the area where the repellent was sprayed and still get to your skin—and you certainly don’t want to cover yourself in repellent every night before bed to prevent bed bug bites. No one wants to do that, and it doesn’t solve the bed bug problem. Your home or living space should not have bed bugs, but finding a safe, effective treatment has been difficult…until now.
The good news is that there is finally, an excellent, highly effective, non-toxic alternative bed bug control spray that kills bed bugs and their eggs on contact. It is called Bed Bug 911, and this company sells various sizes of this bed bug treatment from small travel sizes to cases for hospital and hotel use. Bed Bug 911 also sells excellent quality twin, full, queen, and king size mattress covers that create a complete ‘encasement’ for the bed, trapping the bed bugs in the mattress cover with the anti-bed bug treatment spray.
Once you spray the bed down and encase the mattress in a proper size mattress cover, the bed bugs are sure to be exterminated from the mattress, as again, they cannot escape the treatment spray. Spray some around the bed and around the house as a normal pest control tech would, and there’s very little chance that any bed bugs or eggs that come in contact with the spray will survive. This is a very effective method of exterminating bed bugs and has been used all over the world with outstanding results.
