Should I throw away my bed and Mattresses if I have Bed Bugs?

Beds and mattresses

Bed Bugs London are often asked: Should I throw away my bed and Mattresses if I have Bed Bugs ?

Below is our answer:

We often come across people who have previously thrown away beds and mattresses and it didn’t help the problem. Sometimes the very action of taking a mattress out of a house can cause the bed bugs to spread into other areas on its way out!

The chances are high that bedbugs will also be living elsewhere in your home, only to re-colonise your new bed when it arrives.  Only very rarely do Bed Bugs London’s treatments require any furniture to be thrown away.
