The chemicals used have very low toxicity to humans and are the same chemicals used in hospitals, daycare centers and schools. It is still best to avoid swallowing the chemicals while they are drying so it is recommended that dogs and cats are kept outside while the chemicals inside the house are drying (this can take up to 3 hours).
This is usually not required for most general pests with the exception of flea treatments.
If it is raining on the day of treatment it is no problem to reschedule the treatment free of charge. The chemical used when spraying outside is oil based and once dried it is water resistant but it must be able to dry first.
Most customers have it treated every 12 months but some have it done every 6 months to ensure complete protection all year round.
It is helpful to ensure the floor is clear of clutter such as toys and clothes as to avoid them coming into contact with any chemicals as well as open up any side gates and locked rooms to ensure easy access. It may be necessary to clear out items from kitchen cupboards but this is only needed when dealing with a heavy German cockroach infestation.
Depending on the pest problem you are having it can take anywhere from immediately to up to 3 weeks.
For general pests up to 6 months of warranty is included so if problems persist after treatment a follow up treatment can be arranged free of charge.
It’s usually best to get a termite inspection done at least once a year. Early detection is the key to preventing widespread damage to a home’s timbers.
Unfortunately termite damage is not covered by insurance. The installation of a termite barrier is recommended to give yourself the best chance to avoid your home coming under termite attack.
Water based chemicals are used indoor that are formulated to not stain either carpet or sealed wooden floor boards.
