How the house fumigation service works
Our insect fumigation services are a great way to deal with flying and crawling bugs such as ants, bed bugs, carpet beetles, cockroaches, flies, fleas, moths, silverfish, or spiders. For optimal results, we recommend you to do the following things before the pest controller arrives:
- Remove all pet animals from the property (yes, even fish);
- Hoover the affected areas as best as you can;
- Isolate affected clothing/bedsheets in bags and hot-wash them.
When the pest controller arrives, he will carefully inspect the property to determine the level and type of infestation. Then, he will commence the fumigation procedure. At this point, you will be asked to leave the property. The professional will then use a special machine that spreads biocide powder to treat all affected surfaces. In time, the powder will take its effect and the infestation will cease as all bugs (and their eggs) perish.
What to do after the fumigation service?
First of all, the property is to remain empty for at least two hours when the procedure is over. This will allow the powder to settle and take effect. When you come back home:
- Open all windows of every room to ventilate the place;
- Do not clean/mop the treated areas for at least 4-5 days;
- In case of a bed bug infestation, it is a must to sleep in the rooms that have been treated to lure out the insects, which are attracted to the heat and carbon dioxide that the human body emits. This is done in order to make them come into contact with the treated surfaces and get eliminated as a result;
- Keep an eye for further signs of infestation;
- In some cases, a secondary or even a tertiary visit might be required to perform a complete eradication.

Q: What happens if the pests still bother me even after the service?
A: It is common for insects to become more active right after the service as they have a strong reaction to the insecticide.
