Here are a Few Things That You Need to Do Before the Experts Arrive-

Before Service-

  1. While this isn’t a compulsory step but you must be prepared to leave your home for some time. Many chemicals are used during the treatment to kill the pests. Hence, you might have to leave your home for about 3-5 hours or as advised by the Flea Control Services operator.
  2. Pet bedding must be washed or thrown off.
  3. Your floors need special attention at this time. It’s best to vacuum all mop wood, tile floors and carpeting.
  4. All the furniture must be thoroughly cleaned or vacuumed, especially under the cushions.
  5. Vacuum cleaner bag must be disposed off in a trash container outside your house.
  6. All pets must be treated for fleas by an expert veterinarian. If you are willing to do it yourself, you must read all label instructions carefully. Use products that are safe and can be used on the species you intend to treat. This is an important step; otherwise, the chances of reinfestation are quite high.
  7. Fish tanks, if any must be covered with wet towels. It is also advisable to turn off all the pumps until the procedure is complete.
