is the fumigation process?
The fumigation process usually takes 24 to 48 hours.
The fumigation crew covers your home with tarps, prepares
the interior, seals the tarps, and releases a warning
agent into the home. Then Vikane is introduced into
the structure. We will carefully calculate the amount
of Vikane, based on a variety of factors including
the target pest, temperature and size of the home.
After the fumigation is complete, we clear the fumigant
from the structure following label instructions, and
confirm clearance with sensitive monitoring equipment.
do I need to do to prepare for fumigation?
termite company will give you detailed information
and a step-by-step checklist
in order to allow you to prepare for your fumigation.As
a homeowner, some of your preparation steps will include:
watering soil and cutting back foliage at least 18
inches from the home; ensuring all people, plants
and pets are out of the structure; shutting
off and turning on the natural gas; bagging
certain foods and making overnight arrangements
for your family and pets.
is Vikane gas fumigant?
is a colorless, odorless gas that quickly penetrates
structural materials during fumigation. It is non-staining,
non-corrosive and non-flammable. Vikane quickly dissipates
from the structure into the atmosphere and does not
deplete the ozone.
Vikane leave any residues?
Unlike other treatment options, Vikane does not remain
in the home after fumigation. It completely dissipates,
leaving no surface residues behind. So with Vikane,
you don't need to wash your dishes, linens, clothing
and other items after fumigation.
Vikane cause damage?
Vikane does not react with most materials. It is highly
unlikely to cause damage to structures or their contents
when properly applied by a trained fumigator.
precautions are taken to ensure my family's safety?
will: (1) Release the warning agent to deter entry
to the home. (2) Secure doors on your home with additional
locking devices to prevent unauthorized entry. (3)

has dissipated, so you may re-enter your home. We
also make sure the natural gas is turned off before
beginning the fumigation process.
