I have to agree with most of the answers as written below. In the Hotel industry, spraying all over the place isn't an option. You have to isolate what's infested versus what isn't. If you like your clothing, then wash them in hot water (by themselves), bed bugs don't like heat. Your mattress, as mentioned elsewhere, you may need to get rid of it. Turn it upside down and remove the felt lining..don't be frightened. I jumped out my socks! Wash your self (no pun intended) with hot soapy water, and if you have carpet, hot steam clean also. After all the above, (for me anyway) I used a good blast of "Real Kill Indoor Fogger", but you have to isolate "everything," in plastic, under doors, the bedding that's left behind which is a lil more work than most people want to do. Or you can remove everything from the affected room. Read the instructions on the last product I mentioned carefully. Of course, if you really need to, then yes call in the professionals. I own a home so my tactics only affected my home. I had room, time, and patience to experiment. Check out this website http://bedbugsguide.com . If you have any further questions, I will get another reference from the hotel industry and post as soon as possible. In the meantime, good luck!
