How to Safely Remove a Bedbug-Infested Mattress from an Assisted Living Center 


Bedbugs are a common problem in residential and commercial buildings, primarily assisted living centers. Getting rid of bedbugs requires professional help and special precautions to ensure that the infestation is completely removed. This blog post will discuss the steps you need to take when removing a bedbug-infested mattress from an assisted living center and whether or not you should hire a professional junk removal company. 


Steps to Take Before You Begin Removing the Mattress 


The first step is to contact your local pest control specialist, who can help identify the type of pest infestation you are dealing with and advise you on how to remove the bedbug-infested mattress safely. It would help if you also took the time to inspect other areas of the assisted living center for signs of bedbugs, such as egg sacs or shed skins. Once you have identified where the infestation is coming from, it’s time to start preparing for removal. 


You should also ensure that all residents of the assisted living center know that a bedbug-infested mattress is being removed, as well as any visitors who may be present at the time of removal. It’s also essential to wear protective clothing such as long sleeves, pants, gloves, and masks while handling any items related to the infestation. Finally, ensure that all mattresses and furniture near the bedbug-infested bed are properly sealed before beginning removal. 

Hiring a Professional Junk Removal Company? 

Once you have taken all necessary precautions and precautions for safety reasons, it’s time to decide if you want to hire a professional junk removal company or try removing it yourself. Both options have advantages and disadvantages; however, it’s highly recommended that you hire a professional if possible due to their expertise in safely disposing of hazardous materials like bedbugs without spreading them any further throughout your space. Professionals will be able to provide proper disposal methods which ensure that no further harm comes from your infestation issue.  


Getting rid of bedbugs can be an overwhelming task. Still, by taking proper hygiene practices into consideration and following the steps outlined above, you can safely remove an infected mattress from an assisted living facility without any additional problems associated with improper disposal methods. Hiring a professional junk removal company is always recommended because they can offer specialized services that guarantee safe disposal practices and ensure no further spread occurs throughout your area after completion.
