The process of heat treatment
The main objective of the hot air heat treatment is to eradicate all life stages of the pest at once, which may take up to several hours for the whole process to complete. Initially, our experienced heat specialists always carry out an inspection and a risk assessment prior to the treatment. During the inspection we determine the source of the infestation, which is usually sheeted over with an industrial material and heated to a higher temperature, as opposed to the other zones in the premises. Therefore, we are able to achieve greater efficiency in the complete extermination of the source and all other affected areas/furniture/items.
The hot air method and our equipment allows us to maintain constant temperature in the treated premises. The temperature may vary between 45 and 60 degrees Celsius, depending on the building’s fabrics, heat penetration probability, type of pest and the ISPM 15 legislation, where applicable. Meanwhile, the heat process and the temperature is monitored by one of our heat experts, making sure that the right amount of heat will reach even the smallest cracks and crevices, exterminating all life stages of the pest. There is almost zero-risk of damaging any electrical appliances and equipment or any other belongings. As a preparation, prior to the process, we ask our customers to store cosmetics, food and fine oil paintings away from the treated premises. All electrical equipment is safe, as long as it is switched off prior to the treatment.

Other benefits of the hot air method
Hot air is the most effective non-toxic way to eliminate any kind of pest insect infestation, even mould and water problems, which makes very versatile. Another benefit of choosing heat with hot air is that the whole process could be set up to work simultaneously in all different areas of the treated premises, saving time and money.
Using heat with hot air preserves any kind of furniture, no matter how severely it may be infested, unlike most other pest removal methods. Depending on the individual circumstances of the customer, our bespoke heat treatments may include spray right after the treatment, which will ensure post-treatment residual effect and reduced risk of future reintroduction of the pests. In case that a pesticide treatment is not carried out, the treated premises become safe to occupy almost immediately after the heat treatment.
