A trailer unit is parked outside the property, containing an energy-efficient boiler.
This superheats a liquid mix, which is then transferred into the property via a network of insulated pipes, connecting internally to a network of heat exchangers.
The heat exchangers then expel high velocity, heated airflow throughout the area to be treated, gradually raising the temperature of structural materials and permeating into all gaps, crevices and sub-floors.
Our scaleable system allows us to heat isolated areas, whole rooms, entire houses and even larger commercial premises in a single treatment.
The application of sustained heat is the single best way to kill all life cycle stages of an infestation.
At 49-56°c the protective external waxy coating breaks down and their basic protein structure denatures, ensuring biological activity is eliminated.
Eggs, larvae and pupae are dessicated by the heat, ensuring a complete eradication of all stages of the infestation.
Unlike chemical treatments, heat can permeate all areas, including large-dimension timber beams, sub-floors and beams set in gable ends.
We monitor temperatures in such features via inset probes, ensuring the core temperature of hard-to-reach areas rises to the desired 'kill temperature' where it is then sustained for the required period ot time to completely eliminate the infestation.
