Bed Bug Extermination
Although Flash didn’t find any bedbugs in our home (because there aren’t any) the peace of mind and positive experience with him and his human was worth it all! I will sleep well knowing our new home that was staged with furniture is truly move in ready!Sep 12, 2020Verified

Bed Bug Extermination
We pretty much freaked out when we found a bed bugs in our home and contacted a few companies right away to get estimates. Northwest K9 was an estimate in the middle (which we like), and several factors impressed us right away. Susan set up a phone call with me the day I asked for an estimate, and we spoke for about an hour (on a Sunday, on her own time, answered my many questions, freely offered knowledge and advice). No other company we contacted came close to their customer support, with no strings attached. They didn't require an inspection but trusted the photos I had, and went out of their way to schedule treatment on a day that worked for us. The technicians themselves were a few minutes early (called before they came), very friendly and professional, and took extra steps to safeguard our furniture during the heat treatment (it can cause ikea veneers to peel, they noted our ikea furniture and protected it with tape and more care from the heat when needed). We were warned that our home would look like a disaster zone when done since everything would be moved around (so the heat could penetrate everywhere), but they even took the extra time to move our furniture back into place. I do wish they had warned me about the dust they applied (it's a non-toxic longterm bedbug killer) . . . I knew it would be applied to all of the baseboards but didn't realize it would coat pretty much every surface in the house from being blown around by fans when cooling down the house. It dried out our skin (feet especially) for the first couple weeks after treatment while we got our house back in order (that's how it kills the bugs), and I wish I had known to be more careful and maybe worn shoes inside for a while. There is pretty massive inconvenience with any bed bug treatment from any company (moving most/all furniture, washing/drying tons of loads of laundry/bedding/textiles, vacuuming a million times...). Heat treatment is pricey anywhere, but the peace of mind was worth the cost to us. Susan and the technicians at Northwest K9 (I think their names were Darcy, James, and Gary?) made the experience as positive as possible. They were very attentive to detail, responsive, thorough, quality, and professional. I would highly recommend them.Aug 21, 2017VerifiedNorthwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives's reply

Bed Bug Extermination
After having a different pest company tell us we had beg bugs, we began to research options about how to get rid of them. That is how I cam across Susan and NW K9 Bed Bug Detectives. She could not have been more helpful in explaining to me what my options were, as well as asking very intelligent and pointed questions about what this person saw in our house. I ended up having her dog come out for an inspection, and the good news was that we actually did not have bed bugs!!! We did, however, have a different pest problem, which NW K9 took care of with a non-toxic option. If I could rate this company higher, I would do so. They were professional, punctual, knowledgeable, thorough--I cannot recommend them enough.Aug 16, 2017Northwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives's reply

Susan was kind. Explained their process etc. Darcy and Al were great at the house. Thorough though we had boxes everywhere since we just moved in. Explained what they saw and what they did. I was overall very satisfied and will be using them for maintenance as well.Jan 19, 2018VerifiedNorthwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives's reply

The NW K9 team did an amazing job in getting rid of our problem. Bed bugs are no joke and for sanity's sake, it's worth spending the money to have Susan's team come in and get the job done right away (rather than attempting to treat the issue yourself). We had the heat treatment done and have had peace of mind ever since / no sign of any pests and it's been over a month since treatment. Thanks again NW K9 Team!!Dec 20, 2017Northwest K9 Bed Bug Detectives's reply
