HOUSTON (FOX 26) –
Kalynn Trammell was renting to own a couch for her Brazoria apartment hoping to find comfort. Instead she says all she found was a pack of unwanted pests — Bed bugs and clusters of bed bug eggs. “It’s just been hell. It’s disgusting,” she said.
Now she has dozens of bite marks all over he body. “I’ve got ’em on my leg, I’ve got ’em on my back, inner thigh, legs here… 30 to 40 bites, all resulting in scars,” she said. She’s even staying with a neighbor and sleeping on the floor because her apartment has yet to be disinfected.
Trammell thinks she had an allergic reaction to the bites and is now covered with bumps and scars. “Every bite has resulted in a scar, I have to look at it for the rest of my life. I look like I’ve been doing drugs,” said Trammell.
The Rent-A-Center in Clute where she got the furniture took the couch away, refunded her payment, and sent an exterminator out to inspect her apartment. But he did not spray it. A company spokesperson tells Fox 26 News they believe the bed bugs were already there claiming bugs were found in the baseboards, outlets and mattress. “No they were not, I’ve been here for 2 years. They were not in my home prior,” said Trammell.
The spokesperson goes on to say that their stores go to “great lengths” to sanitize all furniture before it’s rented. Trammell thinks they missed hers. “Right now I want them to exterminate my home, I want my furniture and I want this past me, I don’t want to deal with it no more because it’s been a nightmare for me,” she said.
Rent-A-Center says they want to make their customers happy, but they don’t have a definitive answer to who’s at fault in this case.
