Prepping For Fumigation
Careful planning and preparation should always be taken when it comes to tenting your home. Our experts help you rundown the checklist and prepare you for what to expect. The process may initially seem overwhelming, but proper preparation and organization will make the process much more manageable.
The first step in the tenting preparation process is to make arrangement for you and your family to stay at another location for about 72 hours. This could be a great opportunity for a family weekend getaway! The fumigation preparation process, treatment, and ventilation afterwards takes approximately 72 hours to complete. You will want to pack everything you and your family will need for that duration of time.
Since tenting required a large tarp to cover your house, bad weather can be a significant factor in any potential delays. Rain and heavy winds can make it more difficult to place the tent over the house. If bad weather is forecasted in your area, we may consider rescheduling by a few days.
The actual treatment portion of the fumigation process takes approximately 24 hours or less. The ventilation process will take about 6 hours. Regardless of these average times, you and your family will not be permitted back into your home until the home is cleared to 1 part per million or less of fumigant.
There may be additional requirements for your house or you may have specific requests. Be sure to ask or inform us of these requests and we will be more than happy to accommodate them.
