Bed bugs (Cimex lectularius and in tropical areas Cimex hemipterus) are becoming more and more prevalent in developed countries. What was once a common problem throughout the world is reappearing in ever greater numbers due to a lack of knowledge on the treatment and control of this parasitic pest.
The extreme temperatures of our steam vapour cleaners have been proven to kill Bed Bugs and their eggs meaning, unlike aggressive chemical treatments, you are eliminating two generations at once and completely breaking the breeding cycle.
Dust mites are known to contribute to many medical conditions including asthma, allergic rhinitis, childhood eczema and other allergic conditions.
The use of steam to control dust mite infestations negates any secondary contaminations, as is the case with pesticides, and, can be used on any infested surface in the home.
The presence of allergens such as dust mites, pet dander, cockroaches etc, are proven risk factors in the development of and the onset of attacks of asthma.
Greater efficacy can be achieved with the combination of steam and vacuum, giving the user the ability to not only kill the dust mites and their eggs, but to also remove the faeces and waste of these pests, which are the major triggers of allergic and asthmatic attacks.
