How to Check Your Hotel Room for Bed Bugs

HOW TO CHECK YOUR HOTEL ROOM FOR BED BUGS SEVEN Easy Steps You Can Do in 5 minutes LEAVE YOUR LUGGAGE AT THE DOOR Just in case! If the room has bed bugs, you don't want to risk them getting in your bags. CHECK OUT THE BED! Begin by pealing each layer off the bed. On each layer check the seams, edges, and folds for spotting (fecal spots or blog spots), skins that have been shed, live insects, or eggs. This is what you are looking for: 3 LIFT UP THAT BOXSPRING! After you've checked all of the linens and the mattress, lift up the box spring and do another 4 thorough check of that. Pay close attention to crevices, folds, and seams as that is where bed bugs love to hide. THE HEADBOARD Lift it off and look behind it. If you can't move it, slide a piece of paper behind it several times. If there are bed bugs, they'll cling to the paper. THE CLOSET Check that ironing board just like you checked the bed – thoroughly! Also check the door tracks, shelving, and hangers. 5 THE NIGHTSTAND Check the corners and crevices (do we sound like a broken record?). Check the binding on the Bible (seriously!) and any other books or magazines in the drawer. THE COUCH Lift up the cushions and look closely at all of seams. If you're lucky, you might even find a couple quarters under there! WHAT SHOULD YOU DO IF YOU FIND BED BUGS? 1. Get out of the room immediately. This is why you were smart and left your bags at the door! 2. Do you have to stay at this hotel? If you don't, notify them of the issue and that you would like a refund and will be staying somewhere else. (if the hotel gives you a problem, call the credit card company you booked the room with for a faster refund) 3. If you have to stay there, get a new room and begin your inspection all over again.
