Heat Treatments for Bed Bugs in Stratford, Dagenham and London

One of the most common infestations which affects domestic and commercial clients in Stratford, Dagenham, Rainham, Romford and the surrounding areas is bed bugs. At Armour Environmental Services Ltd, our experts are qualified at carrying out heat treatments as an alternative to chemical-based pest control solutions at homes and hospitality venues for London and Essex clients.



Heat Treatments Explained


Our pest control team is fully-trained to carry out eco-friendly diathermic treatments throughout London and Essex which are set up in the form of a capsule or bubble. This encloses the affected areas, such as beds, seating areas, furniture, carpets and other soft furnishings. Because there are no chemicals involved, clients in Dagenham, Barking, Manor Park, Stratford, Ilford, East Ham, Rainham, Romford, Walthamstow and Plaistow can be assured that neither their possessions or property will be damaged. Instead, a computerised thermostat regulates a precise temperature, controlling the amount of heat and humidity the bed bugs are exposed to within the diathermic bubble.


  • 58°C – Effectively eliminates 100% of insect infestations, from bed bugs, to fleas, moths, lice, cockroaches, woodworm and dust mites
  • 65°C – Successfully treats soft furnishings, such as mattresses, carpets and curtains afflicted with bed bugs, without damaging interiors as chemicals would
  • 73°C – Efficiently neutralises any viruses, bacteria and fungal spores associated with household pests and insects



Benefits of Heat Treatments


  1. Temperature works as a lure - Bed bugs thrive in warm environments and are attracted to areas of your Stratford, Dagenham, Rainham, Romford, London and Essex property that emits heat. The diathermic temperatures draw bed bugs towards the heat source, however when the thermostat rises, the insects are terminated.
  2. Fast and efficient pest control – This pest control method is a popular choice because the treatment is time efficient, typically requiring 1 to 2 hours to complete. If you chose to freeze beg bugs, this would take a couple of days to fulfil.
  3. Lack of harsh chemicals – As most areas infected with bed bugs are living or public spaces, utilising a pest control procedure without chemical agents benefits the health and safety of Stratford, Dagenham, Rainham, Romford, London and Essex clients.

Ideal Alternative to Chemical Pest Control


Pesticide sprays cannot be used on clothing, bedding, carpets or curtains without needing to be replaced, due to the deterioration and stains from the chemical agent. Heat treatments prevent damage and the need to remove and replace your soft furnishings because any exposure to bed bugs is resolved. This makes diathermic alternatives more convenient and cost-effective, especially for hotels, resorts and bed and breakfast venues with large inventories.


Diathermic pest control solutions also work alongside other treatments to deliver maximum results for clients in London and Essex, including the surrounding Stratford, Dagenham, Rainham and Romford areas. The safe application of insecticidal sprays, which comply with the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health (COSHH) guidelines can also be used to target insects and larvae in other, harder to reach areas of your property, such as beneath floorboards and in wall crevices. Due to the rate that bed bugs breed, our pest control experts recommend that clients take precautions to treat other areas likely to be infected.


While heat treatments kill bed bug infestations, they can return when the climate is cooler or spread from person to person, especially with new visitors and guests. Additional insecticides can alleviate the risk of further bed bugs at your Dagenham, Barking, Manor Park, Stratford, Ilford, East Ham, Rainham, Romford, Walthamstow, Plaistow, London or Essex property.
