What to do before and after the treatment
If clothes or bedlinen have become infested, wash them at 60 degrees Celcius, or put them in a dryer on a hot setting for 30 minutes to kill the bugs.
Dismantle your bed and furniture, and closely inspect every seam, crevice and joint using a bright torch and use a vacuum cleaner with a hose to suck up any bugs you can see, but bear in mind you may not be able to find them all. Dispose of the contents of the vacuum cleaner in a sealed bag.
You may need to throw away a mattress if it appears to be heavily infested.
