Preparation for Treatments

I ask customers to make some basic preparations to ensure your safety and to assist with the treatment process:

What to do to prepare for the internal fly treatment
  • Put away or cover all food, fruit bowls and clean dishes.
  • Put away towels, toothbrushes and toilet paper.
  • Put away any precious items that may be knocked over.
  • Cover or put away pet food and water bowls.
  • Cover fish tanks and turn off the filter.
  • Cover the head end of the bed and put away all pillows. Cover cots.
  • Ensure dogs are secured while the technician is on-site.

Please note
- For any internal treatments you must vacate the house for a minimum of 4 hours from the time I arrive.

When you return:

Open up doors and windows for 15 mins to ensure residual odours air out. Wipe down food preparation surfaces, tables, bathroom bench tops and door handles immediately upon re-entering.

What to do to prepare for the spider treatment
  • Put away or cover all food, fruit bowls and clean dishes.
  • Put away towels, toothbrushes and toilet paper.
  • Put away any precious items that may be knocked over.
  • Cover or put away pet food and water bowls.
  • Cover fish tanks and turn off the filter.
  • Cover the head end of the bed and put away all pillows. Cover cots.
  • Cover lounge furniture (couches, chairs, pillows).
  • Ensure dogs are secured while the technician is on-site.

Please note
- For any internal treatments you must vacate the house for a minimum of 4 hours from the time I arrive.
- Do not remove webs until 10 days after treatment or you will be removing the product.

When you return:

Open up doors and windows for 15 mins to ensure residual odours air out. Wipe down food preparation surfaces, tables, bathroom bench tops and door handles immediately upon re-entering.

What to do to prepare for the flea treatment
  • Remove small items from the floor and underneath beds. The more floor space I cover, the better the treatment.
  • If you are getting bitten in bed, strip the bed and hot wash the sheets in hot water, or alternatively any bedding, put through a hot dryer for 10 mins.
  • Vacuum carpets thoroughly prior to treatment (optional). If so, seal and discard the contents of the vacuum bag.
  • Do not vacuum again for one week after treatment. This will give the product time to treat the fleas.
  • Cover or put away pet food and water bowls.
  • Cover fish tanks and turn off the filter.
  • Ensure dogs are secured while the technician is on-site.

Please note
- For any internal treatments you must vacate the house for a minimum of 4 hours from the time I arrive.

When you return:

Please wear socks or slippers for 24 hours and ensure children play on blankets. This is to avoid prolonged contact with any remaining dampness in the deep pile of the carpets.

Are the treatments safe for pregnancy/children/babies and pets?

Most treatments use synthetic pyrethroids (which are based on natural pyrethrums). The products I use have been proven safe in sensitive situations over a number of decades.

All treatments are professionally applied and are at a level that won't affect mammals and are readily metabolized (i.e. if you do come into contact with the treatment it will pass straight through you and not build up in your body).

We ensure no adverse health effects, in particular when dealing with children, pets and the sensitivities of health conditions.
