Home Fumigation Services

Finding insects in your home can be devastating, but it doesn’t mean an automatic fumigation is necessary. Sometimes just a simple extermination service is required. But if you find a variety of insects in your home in a large quantity, a complete home fumigation may be your best option.

What Exactly Are Home Fumigation Services?

Fumigation is a method of pest extermination in which gaseous pesticides (or fumigants) completely fill your home. These pesticides poison the pests and ultimately suffocate them, leading to their extermination. Home fumigation services often follow a procedure:

  • The area of fumigation is covered and sealed up so the pesticides don’t harm the surrounding area.
    The fumigant is released.
  • The area is then sealed for a set amount of time so the fumigants can percolate and exterminate the pests residing within your home.
  • After a period of time, the area is ventilated so the gases can filtrate out and render your home safe for you to re-enter.
  • Before you hand over the keys to the fumigator, be sure to unplug all electronics, heat sources, lights and appliances as a precaution. Also be sure to open all the doors to allow the fumigants to easily pass through the entire house. You’ll also want to seal up food items and anything consumable. Your fumigator should make sure all necessary precautions have been taken before the fumigation process starts.
