7 Easy Steps to Check Your Hotel Room for Bed Bugs in 2023

7 Easy Steps to Check Your Hotel Room for Bed Bugs in 2023

Traveling is exciting, but there's a tiny hitch that could throw a wrench into your vacation – bed bugs! These pesky pests can quickly turn your dream holiday into a nightmare. To avoid any unexpected roommates, follow these seven easy steps and learn why hotels using the right mattress protectors can make all the difference.

1. Start with the Luggage:

Before unpacking, place your luggage on non-fabric surfaces like desks or bathroom tiles. This ensures you don’t give bugs easy access to your belongings.

Inspect the bed

2. Grab Your Flashlight:

Although bed bugs are visible to the naked eye, they can be sneaky. A flashlight (or your phone's torch) will help spot them in dimly lit areas.

3. Inspect the Bed:

Start with the sheets, looking for tiny rust-colored stains. Pull back the bed linens and inspect the mattress seams, especially at the corners.

4. Examine the Furniture:

Don't stop at the bed. Look behind the headboard, inside drawer joints, and even the bedside clock.

5. Check the Walls:

Bed bugs can hide behind loose wallpaper, wall hangings, and even in electrical outlets. A quick glance can help you spot any suspicious signs.

Trust your nose

6. Trust Your Nose:

An infestation often has a sweet, musty odor. If something smells off, it's a red flag.

7. Speak Up:

If you find any evidence of bed bugs, notify hotel management immediately. They should be willing to accommodate you in a different room.
