Have your property fumigated in 4 simple steps
Here is what to expect from your fumigation pest control
This procedure is a general treatment done with an insecticide spray. The purpose behind it is to protect the property from a potential insect infestation. For example, most tenancy agreements often include a clause regarding a mandatory property fumigation. When the time for your house fumigation arrives, a fully equipped technician will visit your address to apply the product and keep the pesky bugs at bay for weeks to come.
A few precautionary measures to keep in mind
For your safety and for optimal results, there are a few checklist boxes that you need to tick on the morning before the specialist arrives, namely:
- Remove any pets from your property, fish included;
- Hoover all areas that are about to be treated.
When the London exterminator begins the fumigation, leave the property for about 2 hours, then air out the treated premises for 5 to 10 minutes. Avoid hoovering the treated areas for at least 4 days.
