Covid-19

30MAR 2020 Covid-19 Update From PestPro Thermal Systems

We at PestPro Thermal Systems are sensitive to the increasingly stressful conditions that have been created by the current pandemic and the daily adjustments everyone is being forced to make in order to stay healthy.

We are committed to doing our part and sharing the burden everyone is experiencing in the same way our vendors are doing for us.

In that spirit, and in an attempt to alleviate some of the psychological stress bed bugs create, we have decided to make our products available at break-even prices while the pandemic is ongoing, and the economy is uncertain.

Additionally, we have been receiving numerous calls from our lodging customers who are being asked by local public health authorities to provide temporary housing to those on the front lines combating the Covid-19 pandemic.

Their concern is an important and valid one: once a health care worker departs and another takes their place how do I decontaminate the room for the next guest to make sure the Covid-19 coronavirus does not pose a threat?

Will my existing electric bed bug heater and fan(s) get the room hot enough to effectively kill the Covid-19 virus that may be lingering on surfaces and beneath the surface in beds and other furniture?

To be able to answer these questions we need to be clear that no claims are being made on our part that our equipment (which creates heat from electricity that kills insects, pathogens, and mold spores) is in any way positioned or claiming to be a medical device of any kind.

That being said, heat has been proven by the scientific community to kill the Covid-19 Coronavirus when exposed to heat of at least 158° F/ 70° C for 30 minutes (Stanford Medicine study). 

Our heater’s auto-thermostats are preset at the factory to 145°F but have the flexibility to be reset to higher temperatures if needed. Just call us for instructions on how to do so.

Our re-circulation fans are rated to withstand temperatures of up to 180°F.

Compared to plastic budget heaters which are unproven to withstand multiple heat-up and cool-down cycles at these higher temperatures, we know from our customers’ experiences that our steel electric heaters will withstand these higher temperatures resulting in exponentially longer lifespans.

Effective immediately, pricing for both our UNIVERSAL and HOTEL Packages with 1 re-circulation fan instead of the standard 2 fans, has been reduced to the lowest possible price point to afford heat treatment to as many as possible.

Both packages are now available at $2,299.00 USD. Limit of 2 per customer. (Does not apply to The Bed Bug Beast™ 480v 3ph heaters).

Shipping is not included but will be charged at our cost.

Average shipping charges in the lower 48 US states are currently running $475.00USD from Denver CO USA. Southern Canadian cities are around $205.00USD additional. Shipping invoices will be provided upon purchase.

Call 970-221-1036 for more information or to place an order.

We wish everyone the best in these challenging times. Stay safe and please keep up with the CDC’s guidelines for protecting yourself and your loved ones.

 

Sincerely,

Michael & Gary, Co-Owners
