    I have a question. Are there any hand held steamers that are good for treating beds/other furniture? I read the steamer portion of the FAQ page, but I also remembered seeing a video where a guy treated a bed with a hand held steamer. Kind of worried I'm going to have to replace my vapemore due to some basement flooding earlier this year, and wondering if there is a cheaper, but still effective replacement out there.

    For various reasons its best to avoid handheld steamers, its more effective to use a vacuum cleaner instead.

    Sub optimal tools for bedbugs make the matter worse not better.

    Hope that helps.
