Bed bugs are certainly not something that anybody wants to deal with, but unfortunately in New York City, they have become somewhat commonplace in certain areas of town, and among certain people and neighborhoods.
While bed bugs are an unfortunate hazard and something that must be taken care of, there are things you can do to prevent them, as well as things that you shouldn't do for fear of further spreading these bed bug issues around town .
First and foremost, many people bring sheets and clothes that have been infested with bed bugs to their local Laundromats around town. That's fine for some, but there are many problems for most people who are trying to get rid of bed bugs and attend to their issues accordingly. For many, it can be a significant danger to transport these bed bugs across town and can move bed bugs to contaminate others and other areas previously unintended.
By bringing clothes to the laundromat, then, you also run the risk of having to unfortunately infest those around you with bed bugs, which is surely not something you want to do or should be doing in any case or scenario. Linked to that, too, is the fact that it can be tricky and dangerous to move clothes and items with bed bugs in them, as these bed bugs can often infest other neighborhoods and communities around town with just the slightest movement and provocation.
Once at the laundromat, too, many people don't realize that bed bugs need to be killed with high heat washes, coupled with high heat drying. The problem here is that many laundromats don't offer as high heat of washes and drying cycles as they used to, simply to cut back on costs and cut down on production value in an effort to continue turning a profit.
Because the range of temperatures and options is so low, this will not adequately kill bed bugs in any significant form, and not only spread them within the laundromat, but render the machines useless and the time you spent performing the wash as being wasted.
Additionally, people tend to rush through laundry errands and other work, especially in more public places like laundromats, and in doing so can shirk the work, so to speak, and avoid truly getting to the root cause of bed bug problems. Whether it's overloading washers, running dryers on too short or too mild a spin cycle, or anything else, people often don't fully and completely get all of the bed bugs and issues out of their wash when they perform it at a laundromat, no matter how well-intentioned or diligent they may be.
It doesn't have to be this way, though.
