About Valpas

Valpas started after one trip went horribly wrong. In 2013 our cofounder-CEO Martim caught bed bugs while travelling and got disappointed with all the losses and continuous fossil fuel-made pesticide treatments.

Today, Valpas has set a new hygiene standard in hospitality for bed bug safety. Hoteliers can stop the use of fossil fuel-made pesticides and the GHG they emit over 100 years and be part of the solution to the climate crisis.
