Clean heat tretamnets

Traditionally bed bugs have been eradicated with chemical sprays and powders that slowly kill bed bugs on contact.  After witnessing countless allergic reactions, and negative heath effects in various news articles the innovators at AZEX developed a way to kill bed bugs quickly, affordably, and IMPROVE the air quality in your home, all at the same time! 

Introducing Azex SteriHeat

The Azex SteriHeat process uses filtration which is essential for indoor air quality. The owner of AZEX believes that indoor airborne particulates generated by convective heating processes, such as most bed bug heat treatments, require the use of engineering control, specifically filtration, to manage the aerosol.  This is an integral part of the AZEX SteriHeat process and should be a standard in all bed bug heat remediation efforts where a convective process is used.
