Cockroaches are one of the most common pests that can invade your home, and they can be a nuisance to deal with. These pests can be tough to get rid of, but with the right preparation, you can effectively eliminate them from your home.
Here’s how to prepare your home for roach treatment.
Completely empty kitchen cupboards.
The first step in preparing your home for roach treatment is to completely empty your kitchen cupboards. Remove all food and items from the cupboards and place them on a table. Food needs to be covered with a plastic sheet to protect them from the treatment.
Empty all items from under the kitchen and bathroom sinks
Next, remove all items from under your kitchen and bathroom sinks. This will help the treatment to reach all the areas where roaches may be hiding.
Pull stove and refrigerator away from walls.
If you can, pull your stove and refrigerator away from the walls. This will allow the treatment to reach all the areas where roaches may be hiding.
Anything that is on the floor needs to be picked up and moved away from the walls, to ensure proper coverage of product application.
To ensure that the treatment reaches all the areas where roaches may be hiding, it’s important to pick up anything that’s on the floor and move it away from the walls.
Units/House needs to be vacant.
People and pets should stay outside for a minimum of 4 hours, including the treatment and drying time. The units/house need to be vacant for a minimum of 3 hours after treatment is complete, with treatment application time of up to one hour per unit.
Take out all trash.
Before the treatment, make sure to take out all trash. This will help to eliminate potential hiding places for roaches.
Any surface that is used for food preparation or consumption needs to be cleaned thoroughly. Countertops, stoves, cutting boards, and other surfaces need to be washed with warm soapy water. Additionally, make sure to cover all kitchen utensils and appliances before roach treatment; otherwise, you will need to wash them with warm soapy water after the treatment.
During the roach treatment, dogs, cats, and other pets that can roam around the house need to be removed from the property. Fish, fish tanks, birds, bird cages, and reptile cages need to be covered with a thick blanket or plastic during treatment for protection. After treatment, make sure to remove food and water from pet dishes and wash them with warm soapy water.
Once the treatment is complete, make sure everything is dry before you put all your stuff back. Roach follow-up treatment is usually done after 2 weeks from the initial treatment.
For roach follow-up treatment preparation:
For roach follow-up treatment, you do not need to empty the cupboards anymore. However, we still require the units/house to be vacant for the treatment, with a minimum of one hour per unit.
preparing your home for roach treatment is essential to ensure the safety and effectiveness of the treatment. Follow these steps to prepare your home properly and eliminate these pesky pests from your living space.
