Hi Jess, and welcome to our forum. I’m sorry for your loss, and have good news in relation to your treatment: it’s easy to get rid of bed bugs in an unoccupied area once you know how to.
We have an article about how to get rid of bed bugs in a workplace, and the same steps can be applied to treating pretty much any area that someone isn’t regularly sleeping in, such as a vacated home.
Thank u that article was very helpful
With ideas on treatments
