How Did I Get a Salt Lake City Utah Bed Bug Infestation?
Bed bugs do not care whether they reside in a home, apartment, hotel or furniture store in a lower income or more affluent area. The Utah State University Extension Entomology Department of Biology indicates that bed bugs are capable of producing up to four generations a year. No matter how clean you keep your home or apartment, if a negligent landlord fails to keep the Salt Lake City rental property free of bed bugs, you can have a bed bug infestation. This could be considered negligence on the part of the landlord.
If a hotel owner or furniture rental store owner fails to keep the location free of bed bugs, they can be held liable for your monetary damages as well as non-monetary damages caused by bed bugs.
Perhaps you sustained bed bug bites as a result of a bed bug infestation. Suffering bed bug bites also results in potentially recoverable damages.

People can suffer significantly as a result of a bed bug infestation or bed bug bites sustained while staying at a Salt Lake City area hotel, after accepting delivery of a purchase from a furniture rental store or after discovering a bed bug infestation at an apartment or single-family rental property.

Oxford Academic researchers specifically state “Urticarial reactions and anaphylaxis can also occur.”
Mental health symptoms may also occur, as pointed out in the National Post. Contributor Tom Blackwell indicated that researchers determined that individuals suffering the effects of bed bug infestations are much more likely to suffer anxiety disorders, sleep disturbances, depression, panic and social isolation, compared to individuals not affected by bed bug infestations.
