All clutter in the affected room should be discarded. Furniture should be emptied, vacuumed, and steam treated. All parts of the bed should be cleaned with a vacuum. The mattress should also be cleaned and wrapped in an encasement. Insect interceptors should be placed on the feet of the bed frame.
Even parents who have taken all of the above measures should call an exterminator to make sure the bedbugs are gone for good.
