In brief: Clothing care.

Wash clothing, linens, towels in hot water. Dry on highest heat - then repeat.
Place clean items in a sealed bag to prevent re-infestation.

In brief: Bed bugs

Some professional exterminators use portable devices to raise the temperature of a room to a lethal temperature.
All stages of bedbugs can be killed at 122 f (50 c). In some cases, you may have to throw out heavily infested items such as mattresses or couches.
