Holiday Claims Bureau can help
Signs of bedbug infestation can include small bugs or white eggs around the joints of your mattress or furniture, small black spots on your mattress and bites. Bedbugs tend to come out at night and bite exposed skin. It is important that bedbugs are kept under control as they can easily be transported through luggage, furniture and clothing.
Hotels both in the UK and abroad should be carrying out regular checks on mattresses within their hotel to ensure the room does not become infested with bedbugs. Unfortunately, these procedures are not always followed and hotels visitors and therefore exposed to the risk of bed bugs.
