If you have mold in your home or business, there is an elevated health risk. Some people are highly sensitive to mold and will experience symptoms like dry eyes, skin irritation and difficulty breathing. The reaction can be more severe for others.

To protect your family, employees and customers from the adverse effects of mold, you must first identify the cause of the mold. Then a MoldExterm treatment can eliminate your mold problem for a fraction of the cost of traditional mold remediation.

Why it is better

MoldExterm cost less, takes less time, and does not make a huge mess. Stern Environmental uses quaternary salt to eliminate toxic substances. This EPA-registered and regulated antimicrobial formula kills mold on contact without damaging the walls and other materials in your home.

Then the patented polymer sealant is applied. This is the same material used on surgically implanted devices. Once dried it is no longer water-soluble. An ionic crosslinker keeps it stable and actively fighting off mold, mildew and many other germs. This prevents mold from growing on that surface again.

You do not have to deal with mold problems on your own. Call the experts at Stern Environmental Group. We will provide you with a free mold inspection and prompt, professional service at every stage of the process. We use the latest and most effective mold remediation method to minimize the disruption to your business or household.

Back in the day before there was so much conversation about being environmentally friendly, more powerful pest control products, such as DDT, were readily available. These heavy-duty chemical-rich products could take care of removing bed bugs faster than a New York minute.

Bed bugs are fast-moving villains and masters at infiltration and setting up a base of operations before you can blink an eye. They’ll take over mattresses, curtains, furniture crevices, luggage, and anywhere else that provides a secure hiding spot until they’re ready to feed.

Removing bedbugs can be a challenge since the tiny pests have so many options for hiding. In an effort to remove, eradicate, and prevent bed bugs from making you their dinner choice, a variety of products and methods are currently available to professional pest control services.

The techniques necessary to uproot these bloodsucking bugs is serious business. For your part, you can purchase products such as protect-a-bed encasements, bed bug monitors, mattress liner, heaters, and bed bug barriers for the legs of your bed.

Pest control experts have numerous options including heating or freezing methods, and one of the newest weapons on the market, K-9 sniffing dogs trained to search and find bed bug hiding places.

Pest eradication is the name of the game at Stern Environmental Group. If you have a bed bug problem, don’t worry about it. Call us and we’ll show them the door, for good.

Thirsty bed bugs biting you throughout the night is like living a scene from a vampire movie. You wake up in the morning with red, itching welts that are unsightly and uncomfortable.

The worse part is, the bites will continue every night until you find a way to get rid of the pests. This means a good night’s sleep will be next to impossible.

One way to help is by buying a box spring encasement.

To get started in preparation of purchasing, you’ll need to get an accurate measurement so you order the right size for your bed or beds. Here’s what you do:

  • Begin by removing all of the bed clothes from bedspread to sheets. You’ll also need to remove the mattress pad, if applicable.
  • Next, use a tape measure to determine the length of the box spring.
  • Measure the width from one side to the other.
  • Last step is measuring the height of the box spring. You’ll want to measure to just above the cording so you don’t come up short.

At Stern Environmental Group, not only are our technicians experienced in finding pest problems and making them go away, we also offer products to help make your life safer and more comfortable without bed bugs infesting your home. If you’d like more information about our products, give us a call and we’ll help you choose the product that works best for you.

New Bed Bug Tactics Emerge as the Best Weapons for Control

Bed bugs – for something so small, they pack a wallop when they infest an area and turn you into their favorite dining venue featuring an ongoing tasty buffet.

Their bites leave red, itchy, scratchy welts and for some, it can mean an allergic reaction. Either way, bed bugs have a bad reputation and they’re not something you want in or around homes or businesses.

Bed bugs are difficult to see, much less find, because they get into cracks and crevices, picture frames, desk drawers, light fixtures, baseboards, and headboards, as well as mattresses and curtains. Because of this, chances are slim to none that spraying with over-the-counter products, or excessive vacuuming, will find, and eradicate, the last bed bug standing.

Several weapons are currently in use to fight the increase in bed bug population such as freeze-drying using Cryonite, trained K-9 bed bug sniffing canines, using mattress covers and box spring encasements, and extreme heat applied to each room.

Each of these methods has its pluses in removal of a bed bug infestation, and while they can be costly with prices ranging from $200 an hour to $500 to $1000 per room, using professional pest control services is the best option.

At Stern Environmental Group, we’re locked and loaded with the latest products, methods, and technology to remove unfriendly intruders. Call us and as we like to say, “let us get Stern with your pests.”

One area being positively impacted is in pest control with a variety of methods from birth control to an increase in demand for natural pest control products.
