Fumigation is an efficient way to manage the insects. A lot of homeowners are being festered by termite infestations each year and a lot of homes are being treated by the whole-structure fumigation using products like Zythor or Vikane gas fumigant.
Before you get involved in the process of fumigation, you will have to know and understand about a few important details that will make the course successful.
1. Fumigant Properties
Zythor and Vikane are an odorless, colorless gas, which is non-detectable during fumigation by people, as well as non-flammable, non-corrosive and non-staining. In the form of gas, the fumigant disperses into the environment and doesn’t deplete the ozone. While these fumigants come odorless, a warning agent known as Chloropicrin is complemented in the fumigation process.
This warning agent is colorless with a strong odor that causes tearing of the throat and eyes once utilized on low concentrations. Chloropicrin assists in ensuring that a place is vacated by pets and human prior to fumigation. Also, this serves as the deterrent from accidental or early entry into the location under fumigation. After the fumigation, a professional fumigator will aerate both the fumigant and chloropicrin from the place prior to enabling you to reenter your home.
2. Homeowner’s Preparation For The Fumigation
In addition to the fumigator’s work, it is also your responsibility to aid in preparing your home for the process. The following steps should be taken before the fumigation, which will help in making sure of its success.
