Bugs can carry diseases, cause allergies and trigger asthma attacks. When a bug takes shelter inside a carpet, it causes an infestation. Some female bugs, such as bed bugs, lay up to five eggs daily; others, such as fleas, can lay 2,000 eggs weekly. Bugs living in carpets cause skin irritations, such as itching and breakouts.

Use a commercial steamer with a minimum capacity of 1 gallon, preferably with a steam volume control. The type of steamer you use to steam clothing will not be effective for bed bug treatment. Do not use a carpet cleaning machine. Carpet cleaning machines do not reach high enough temperatures to kill bed bugs.
Mix an insecticide labeled for use on bed bugs, such as Temprid FX, with water in a pump sprayer using the ratio found on the product label to create a bed bug spray. Spray onto baseboards, in corners, around door and window frames, around bed frames, and under furniture. Do not broadcast spray an entire carpet or floor.
To get rid of bed bugs, start by machine washing all of your infested bedding with hot water. If one of your infested items can't be washed, seal it in a plastic bag and put it in a hot, sunny area for several days until the heat kills the bed bugs.
