How to Prepare for Bed Bug Extermination with Clutter Removal:
Just as with bed bugs clutter removal, bed bug laundry should be kept in clear plastic recycling bags. As you will most likely be keeping your personal items quarantined in bags from your property for at least two weeks after bed bug extermination, it is best to keep your clothing in clear plastic bags so that you can see everything clearly. Make sure to keep these bags closed at all times, and to seal them up immediately after taking something out of them. Keep clean clothes and dirty clothes in separate bags, and do another load of bed bug laundry as needed.
