Wondering about how to prep for your professionals? You’re not alone. There are three basic (and very easy) things every homeowner can prepare to keep work streamlined and efficient.
Obviously, the pros know what they’re doing, but you’ll want to anticipate questions about the problem. Have a good idea of when the problem started, where you’ve noticed pests the most, entry points they seem to be coming through, and what treatments you’ve tried so far. Anticipate these few things and it can make the service streamlined and quick.
Keep Work Area Clear
Keep the areas your pest control expert will be working in cleaned up and free of debris, toys, tools, etc. They will be able to spray easier and do treatments thoroughly without spraying your equipment too. Cleaning the area beforehand means less time wasted when they’re there for the job.
Entertain Pets and Kids Elsewhere
As cute as pets and kids are, they can be a big distraction. Simply keep pets in a separate part of the home while your professional works (this can be in another room or the garage). You never know if your professional is allergic or even uncomfortable around pets. It’s kind and helpful to keep the work area clear of distractions. Additionally, ask your professional beforehand how long after the treatment until it’s safe for kids and pets to be in the treatment area.
