Some Tips On How To Check Your Hotel Room For Bedbugs
Travelers are at a significantly higher risk than anyone else when it comes to bedbugs. Since hotel rooms are transient, meaning that they have a different inhabitant every few days, they are the ultimate breeding ground for pests. Some even accuse hotels of ignoring the problem since proper removal is time consuming and costly. If you have a hotel stay on the horizon, here are a few things you can do to minimize your risk.
- LEAVE YOUR LUGGAGE IN THE HALLWAY OR IN YOUR CAR UNTIL INSPECTION IS COMPLETE.
- PULL UP THE COVERS AND SHEETS ON ALL 4 CORNERS OF EACH BED (SLEEP SOFA) AND INSPECT FOR BED BUGS AND DROPPINGS. IF MATTRESS IS ENCLOSED IN A ZIPPERED COVER THERE MIGHT HAVE BEEN A PROBLEM IN THE PAST WITH THIS ROOM.
- TAKE YOUR ROOM KEY AND RUN IT AROUND THE EDGE OF THE HEADBOARD. YOU CAN ALSO BLOW WARM AIR FROM A HAIRDRYER AND WATCH FOR ACTIVITY.
- CHECK THE DRESSER AND NIGHTSTAND FOR VISUAL SIGNS OF BEDBUGS AND OR DROPPINGS BEFORE UNPACKING.
- KEEP YOUR EMPTY SUITCASES OFF THE FLOOR IF POSSIBLE.
- DON’T BE AFRAID TO ASK IF THERE HAS BEEN A BEDBUG PROBLEM IN THE PAST WITH YOUR ROOM.
- WHEN YOU GET HOME LEAVE YOUR BAGS OUTSIDE AND WASH AND DRY YOUR CLOTHES OR BAG FOR DRY CLEANING. CAREFULLY INSPECT LUGGAGE PAYING CAREFUL ATTENTION TO THE SEAMS.
- DON’T WAIT IF YOU THINK YOU BROUGHT HOME BEDBUGS. IT IS MUCH EASIER AND LESS EXPENSIVE TO TREAT A FEW VS. HUNDREDS.
