Unfortunately millions of homeowners are advised that their home is termite infested and fumigation of their home is needed to resolve the problem. At Quality First, we explore every avenue to solve your infestation problem through local treatment alternatives. However, if the infestation is too pervasive, a whole tent fumigation is the only way to effectively rid your home or business of these destructive insects.
The fumigation process will usually take approximately 72 hours. The fumigator will cover the home with large tarps, prepare the interior, seal the tarps and then release the warning agent with the use of a special hose attached to the fumigant cylinder kept outside of the property. The fumigant penetrates into wood to eliminate drywood termites.
Once that procedure is completed the property is aerated and the fumigator will then certify that the property is ready to be occupied again.
The warning agent used in the process is Chloropicrin. This is a colorless liquid with a strong order, and causes tearing of the eyes as well as throat irritation when used at low concentrations. This warning agent is used to ensure that the property is vacated of people and pets prior to fumigating with Vikane.
In addition to the information provided, you will need to check with your fumigator for additional home preparation information.
48 hours prior to fumigation you will need to contact the gas company to shut off and restore service.
