Renting a Property Can Have Hidden Problems, Like Bedbugs

A vacation rental property is a great way to bring in extra income, but bed bugs may derail any plans.

Transforming a property into a vacation rental is an excellent way to bring in additional income. Whether the dream is to turn this into a full-time operation or just a way to make some extra cash throughout the year, it is easier now than ever before to take advantage of the property. However, a single bed bug not only quickly procreates to thousands, but just as easily destroys any rental potential. That is exactly why a property owner need to practice caution and move quickly when regarding pests.

In between guests a property owner always needs to inspect the bed. While changing out the sheets and making the bed, property owners should perform a full inspection and look under the mattress, around edges of the bed and other areas where clothing is often kept. A visual inspection between guests can prevent the spread of bed bugs.

Whether spotting a single bug or a complete infestation, it is important to lean on the side of caution. Property owners shouldn't take the risk of assuming it is a onetime thing. Usually, where there's one there are others. A professional inspection should take place right away. This way, even if there are no other insects home owners have peace of mind knowing their budding vacation rental property is safe. Should the inspection identify more bed bugs, it can be taken care of quickly.

Another good time to utilize a professional inspection is before offering a rental for the first time. The inspection can look through the home, identify potential problem areas and give suggestions as to how to best protect the property and avoid bed bugs in the future.

Whether the infestation is minor or a serious situation, the sooner extermination occurs the faster a property can become available for rent. A vacation rental business can prove lucrative. It can also crumble quickly should a single review mention "bed bugs."Environmental Heat Solutions has the available technology and resources to remove all bed bugs and restore the rental back to its original condition.
