A Guide to Prepping Your Home for Fumigation, Wahiawa, Hawaii

If you’re preparing for home fumigation services, there are important measures you should take to protect your property. Certain preventative measures, such as clearing out the fridge and relocating your pets, will help the exterminators complete the job safely and efficiently. Aloha Termite & Pest Control in Wahiawa, HI, wants you to know exactly how to prepare for fumigation services, so below, they share some helpful tips.

4 Fumigation Prep Tips From Expert Exterminators

1. Protect Clothing & Bedding

No one wants their clothes and bedding to become contaminated by toxic chemicals. Remove the sheets, pillowcases, and comforters from your beds, and take them out of the house during the fumigation process. You should also use garment bags to keep your clothes from absorbing any toxins.

2. Relocate Pets

3. Remove or Seal Foods

Since fumigation involves the use of toxic chemicals, you don’t want them to penetrate your food supply. Before the exterminators arrive, vacuum-seal any opened items in the refrigerator and pantry. Alternatively, place foods into bins and coolers, and move them out of the home until the fumigation process is complete.

4. Plan to Stay Elsewhere

Whether you make reservations at a hotel or stay at a friend’s or family member’s house, arrange for lodging accommodations during the fumigation process. Plan to stay for at least two or three nights. This will allow enough time for the exterminators to treat the entire property and thoroughly aerate it.
