Fumigation is an effective way to eliminate pests in your home or business. For the process to be successful, there are several steps you must take to prepare for the fumigation properly. Find out how to prepare your space for this important procedure.
Step One: Clear Your Home
Before fumigation can begin, all occupants and pets must be removed. Ensure any food, beverages, medications, and pet food are packed away and stored outside the fumigated area. All plants, too, should be moved outside the space that will be treated-fumigants cannot distinguish between insects and foliage!
Step Two: Seal Off Your Space
Once all people and animals have been evacuated from the space, seal off any potential entry points. This includes windows, doors, vents, and other openings where air can escape or enter your home or office building. Specialized equipment is used to ensure that no gas escapes during treatment.
Three: Contact Utility Companies
Contact utility companies before fumigation begins. This includes water companies and gas suppliers who must turn off their services during treatment. This step is crucial in ensuring that everyone involved remains safe throughout the process.
Fumigation is a powerful tool for getting rid of pests, but it can only be effective if done correctly. By properly preparing for a fumigation procedure, you ensure a safe and successful treatment every time.
