Cimex Eradicator is a machine which is capable of eliminating bed bugs including their eggs without the use of insecticides. This particular machine has very little enviromental impact and has absolutely zero negative health effects. It is a steam generator which Polti's Steam Disinfector nozzle is attached to and where the steam produced in the boiler is heated up to 180 degrees Celsius. The steam released kills 100 percent of the bed bugs by shock through heat for a continual disinfestation. Throughout the delivery stage, the steam is combined with HPMed detergent (a water and alcohol based solution) which works as a coadjuvant to wipe out the unpleasant smell of bed bugs and soften the glue-like substance which sticks the eggs to any types of surfaces. The super heated, dry steam of this product can be utilized on any type of fabric or surface without leaving behind any residue and can also be steered into the hard to reach corners in order to treat nesting areas. The fungal, viral, and bacterial count is lowered in just seconds when using the Cimex Eradicator. This innovation has a nozzle that comes with controlled-expansion, heat exchange device and a 2-liter boiler capacity.
The Cimex Eradicator is a steam generator with a special steam nozzle - the Steam Disinfector (with a Polti patent) - that superheats steam up to 356°F, which is the above the temperature necessary to kill bed bugs due to thermal shock.
What kind of water should be used?
The Cimex Eradicator has been designed to work with normal tap water with an average hardness between 8° and 20° f. If the tap water contains a lot of limescale use a mixture of 50% tap water and 50% commercially available demineralized water. Do not use pure demineralized water. (For more information on water hardness please contact your local council).
