When spraying outdoors it is recommended you close all doors and windows, remove all clothes from the line, remove all pet bowls and water containers, and either have the kids and pets inside or off the premises for around 1 hour. Just remember, once the chemical has dried, usually within 30 – 60 minutes, it is then safe to resume all normal outside activities.
It is recommended to mop your floors either the day off or day before your service as the chemical will need to be left alone for at least 1 week to get the best results. If there are babies in the house, all baby feeding containers, bottles etc will need to be covered and placed in the cupboards. It is not recommended to have any equipment of this sort on open benchtops while an inside treatment is being completed.
Clothes or Toys
We don’t spray directly onto clothes or toys so the tidier your house and the more items removed from around the walls will result in a more thorough treatment. It is also an option to remove all stored items from the bottom level of your cupboards so that we can spray these possible harbourage points.
It is a bit of a myth that you need to remove all items from your kitchen cupboards on the day of the service. Yes, this has to happen sometimes, but this is only if you have a bad infestation of cockroaches. 95% of the time this isn’t the case. We can control active cockroaches in your cupboards without removing items by using different types of baits and bait stations. We also carry a special type of feed spray that can be sprayed in the cupboard’s cracks and crevices that will draw cockroaches out to feed on it. The active ingredient in the chemical causes it to be transferred onto other cockroaches when they groom in their harbourage areas.
Spray Wait Time
Once the spray has been completed inside, it will generally take around 1 hour to dry. It is then safe for your family and pets to walk over all sprayed surfaces.
If pests return within the warranty period, so do we.
