With West Palm Beach becoming a frequent destination for travelers for it’s conferences, the Palm Beach Zoo and CityPlace, West Palm Beach and hotel owners need to do all they can to fight the bed bug infestations.
So if you have found bed bugs while staying at a hotel in West Palm Beach, here are Bed Bug Law’s recommendations on what you should do next –
Confirm You Have Bed Bugs in Your West Palm Beach Hotel
In order to sue for bed bugs, you will need to confirm you have found bed bugs in your West Palm Beach hotel. Bed bugs love to feast on blood while you are sleeping, so your next step should be to completely strip your bed of any linens, mattress covers, sheets and anything else that may be on the bed.
Next, grab your cell phone and turn on the flashlight feature. Turn off the lights and closely inspect your bed. If you see any small bugs or small dark brown or reddish spots like in the photo below, you have found bed bugs.
Make sure you take photos and videos of the bed bugs. If you can capture the bed bugs in a secure container, capture them too. This is an important step in proving your case.
Contact the Management Team in Your West Palm Beach Hotel
After confirming you have bed bugs in your hotel, you will want to contact the management team at your hotel. Take clear notes of the individuals you spoke to with their names, titles and other important information. Document how they handled your situation and any interactions including dates and times of those interactions.
