How to Prep For Pest Control 

Having a pre-treatment plan for your home is a great way to prepare for pest control. It will not only give your technician a better idea of the scope of your pest problem, but it will also protect your home from future re-infestation.

When you know your pest problem is a large one, you should consider moving furniture to make more room for your pest control specialist to work. For example, you may want to move all furniture away from the walls. This allows the exterminator to get to the most difficult-to-reach areas. In addition, it gives the technician room to apply the right amount of chemicals and ensures he has a clear path for his tools. 

You may also want to consider cleaning your home’s appliances. This includes your fridge, dishwasher, and garbage can. If you have pets, make sure they are kept outside during the pest control process. You may also want to cover your pet’s enclosure during the treatment. If you have children, make sure their rooms are clean. In addition, you should pack away toys and other belongings that will not be able to get into the treatment area. 

You may also want to vacuum. Vacuuming is a great way to remove bug eggs and other debris, and it forces pests out of their hiding places. However, you should make sure that you vacuum the correct areas. This is especially important if you have a destructive pest. 

To clean the house, you should use a good detergent and scrub the floors. You may also want to use a cloth to clean under small appliances. You should also consider purchasing a crevice attachment for your vacuum cleaner. This is especially important if you have an infestation of any type. 

If you are dealing with a flea or bed bug infestation, you may want to wash the bedding and move it to a different room. You should also consider throwing out any infested items. If you have children, you may want to consider wrapping toys in plastic before putting them away. 

Keeping your home clean will also help make your pest control treatment more effective. It will also make it easier for the technician to get into the home. It’s especially important to vacuum your floors, which pests love to hide in. It’s also a good idea to use a good detergent to remove food sources for the insects. If you’re dealing with a flea infestation, you may want to vacuum the floor in your dog’s room. 

While you are cleaning your home, make sure you remove all food from the kitchen countertops. This will help prevent pests from getting into your kitchen. You should also consider sealing any containers that may be used to store food. This will help to prevent insect infestations year-round. 

You may also want to consider removing pets from your home. While you can’t control all of your pets, you can help prevent the spread of fleas and bed bugs by removing pets from your home before a pest control treatment.
