Use a flashlight to inspect the mattress, box spring and under furniture to ensure the presence of bedbugs. If you find live or dead bedbugs, their eggs, husks or dung then definitely there is bedbug infestation. And check if there is any symptom of bedbugs on family members.
Remove all unnecessary items such as: magazines, papers and boxes of waste that are the ideal places for bedbugs to hide. So, these clutters should be thrown out as soon as possible. Pull drawers from dressers, and remove the box spring, and mattress from the bed frame. Bend the box spring and mattress against a wall.
Clean the quilt, blankets, sheets and any other washable clothing inside dressers using laundry detergent, boiling water and Clorox. Clorox does make a color-safe peroxide for colored fabrics. Make sure the wash cycles are used on the setting.
Dry all items in the maximum heat the fabric can tolerate. This ensures the killing of any mature bedbugs, nymphs and eggs.
Clean with vacuum cleaner the mattress thoroughly using the hose attachment to get around buttons, piping and cushion tops on the mattress. Also clean around the box springs, especially if there any hole in the fabric covering the underside of the box spring. If the ragged material is beyond repair, then remove it overall.
Thoroughly vacuum the inside and outside of all dressers, furniture & fixtures, and night stands. Tremble out any non-washable clothing items that were in the dresser.
Keep the non-washable clothing items in garbage bags, & Depart the bagged items for at least 48 hours.
Clean the carpet with Vacuum cleaner, especially where the bed and mattress were, under the head and foot-boards and other pieces of furniture. Remove the bag from the vacuum cleaner, or drain the removable container into a plastic bag, seal it and dumping it in a trash can.

05. Spray Clorox Mixture:
Mix equal parts of Clorox bleach and hot water in a container. Fill up the spray bottle with the mixture and position the nozzle to spray. Wear the rubber gloves to prevent irritation of the hands from the Clorox.
Use a spray bottle to spread the Clorox mix on the mattress and box spring thoroughly; particularly under buttons, piping and cushion tops. Never use straight bleach on the mattress. Bleach is always irritant to the skin even after dry. So, it’s essential to wear hand gloves.
06. Wash infested areas:
Mix some Clorox with water in a bucket, use a washcloth with the Clorox mixture and drenched it out. Clean any washable areas in the room, especially the innards of dressers and dresser drawers, baseboard and lighting fixtures. Don’t excessively saturate, especially on outer surfaces of things, as the Clorox can damage or weaken the surfaces of some furniture finishes.
07. Keep back everything after drying:
Let the mattress and box spring to dry. If the fabrics were removed from the bottom of the box spring, use the plastic sheeting to cover the naked box spring, securing it with staples no more than 1 inch apart.
Put back everything as before after thoroughly dried. Remake the bed with the newly germ-free bedding. After 48 hours, the clothing bags can be opened, and the items keep back in the dresser.
