Two effective steps to ‘kill’ bed bugs fast and leave your mattress fresh


Bed bugs are small insects that can live on bedding, on or even inside the mattress.

They can bite which results in small rashes forming which may be itchy.

Ben Slater from Online-Bedrooms shared the best way to remove them from a mattress as well as how to keep it clean.

Common signs you may have a bed bug infestation include blood stains on sheets and pillowcases, eggshells or shredded skin, a musty odour around the bed as well as seeing living or dead bugs.

Ben said: “Bed bugs are active all year round but they do tend to peak in the summertime as they love the heat and are more active in warmer conditions.”
