How to prevent a bedbug infestation?Reduce the clutter within your home – especially within drawers. These areas are perfect hiding spots for bedbugs.Avoid purchasing second-hand furniture as it may be infested by bedbugs, which may go undetected by the naked eye.Encase your mattress with a bedbug-proof breathable mattress protector. Select a light-coloured casement (a tough, close-woven cotton fabric) so that it will be easier to see the bedbugs if there are any.Make it a point to inspect your bed every time you change the sheets. Note that upholstered headboards and mattresses are common places that harbour bedbugs.Vacuum-clean your sofas, mattresses, carpets, upholstered furniture, headboard and wall panelling regularly, as these are places where the bedbugs hide.Maintain a small gap between the walls and the furniture of your bedroom and living room. Bedbugs have the tendency to crawl onto the walls, then the ceiling and cross into other areas of the home.Make it a point to seal all the cracks that may be present in the walls or wooden floors. Also, one must rectify peeling wallpaper immediately.
