Our team offers house fumigation services to deal with severe infestations.
Here in Florida, one of the most common and serious concerns for homeowners is the threat of termites. These insects thrive in the local climate, and they can do serious damage to your wooden structures. While it’s possible to treat your home for termites and get rid of infestations that are caught early on, in many cases, the colony will have grown so large and spread to so many parts of the home that the best way to deal with the problem is to fumigate. For those unfamiliar with the term, house fumigation is a method of extermination that kills termites and other pests by encasing the house in an air-tight tent, then replacing all the air inside with a gas such as sulfuryl fluoride to kill all the insects. This gas will not damage any of your belongings or leave any residue but will effectively eliminate your pest problem.
Because house fumigation involves replacing all the oxygen in your home with a different gas, you and your household will need to find another place to stay while the tent is up (including finding boarding facilities for your pets or taking them with you). The fumigation process itself usually takes about 60 hours (or two and a half days), but we recommend waiting another 24-48 hours after that to return to your home.
