REAL EXPECTATION FOR A FUMIGATION

If you take the time to explain a fumigation to the homeowner, they  will have real expectations for a fumigation. As a result, it will  reduce unnecessary complaints. When food is bagged and placed back into  the refrigerator and freezer, make sure the bags aren't stuffed so full  the doors won't close. We all know the customer will expect us to pay  for the food. Wine stored horizontally with the cork wet can remain in  the structure.

Have the owner open all interior attics and sub-areas accesses. The  attic and sub-area accesses are important to discuss with homeowner,  because there is usually storage in these areas that would be better if  the owner moved them, as insulation may fall from the attic, causing  them to be focused on the debris and not the great job we just did  eliminating their termites.

Take time to review possible plant damage and what needs to be trimmed.  Move potted plants 10' to 15' away from the structure. Also review  possible damage to fragile structural items, such as tile roofs,  antennas, gutters, and awnings. These items are exposed to the weather  constantly and may not have their original structural integrity. Next,  the fumigator must have access to dirt or cement around the entire  structure to get a good seal. If there is gravel, rocks, bark, plants,  or decks these items compromise the seal and must be addressed prior to  the fumigation. Have the homeowner  prepare these items. If we happen to  damage the plastic under the bark, gravel or rock, the owner expects us  to replace it and it could occur at no fault to the fumigation crew.  Due to the drought it is extremely important to soak the soil around the  structure. This will ensure a good seal! Next, we need to inform the  homeowner that, if we must tape along a fence or wall discoloring will  occur and the owner will need to repaint this area. We tape to get a  good seal. If the owner understands these topics, prior to the job, they  are more likely to be understanding later.

By having these items prepared, prior to the arrival of your fumigator,  you will ensure a more successful fumigation experience.

I’m sure you have seen a house being fumigated at least while driving down the street. But do you know what the fumigation process is? Do you know what you should do before fumigation? Do you want a good fumigation company in Orange County? Hopefully, this article will help answer these questions and other ones you may have.
What is the fumigation process?
First off, the fumigation process uses gas to exterminate pests in an enclosed area. Usually, the fumigation company covers the house or area with a colorful tent or sometimes with some sealing material. The fumigation process can take a couple of hours to a week. The amount of time the fumigation process will take depend on what your problem is, how big the area is, plus other elements. The fumigation gas has no odor, so the fumigators add tear gas to the area being fumigated. The toxic chemicals being used can be lethal to humans, so NO ONE is allowed to go inside the area once fumigation has started.  

How should I prepare for fumigation?
The first thing you should know is that humans, pet, or plant should vacate the area or house being fumigated. This includes fish and planting seeds. Things that are not sealed in glass, metal, or highly resistant materials should also be removed from the area. For example, food, pet food, and medicine should be removed or sealed in a protective bag.

When is it safe to move back in?
The fumigation company should post a re-entree notice to tell you when it is safe to move back into the house or area. If you notice any discomforts like headaches, nausea, tearing, coughing or anything of this sort immediately leave the building. Then contact your doctor, poison control, and Structural Pest Control Board to report the incident.

How do I know if a company is licensed?
You can contact SPCB to find if a company is licensed.
