What do you need to do before the fogging service
You may ask yourself the question ‘what is fogging?’, especially because the term is often used instead of fumigation. Well, fogging is ideally used against infestations with flying insects, which can be directly exposed to the insecticidal spray dispersed from special fogging equipment for their complete elimination. The treatment is also often used as a health & safety measure prior to renting out a property to new tenants, and this is usually stipulated as a clause in the tenancy agreement. With that clarified, you should be aware of a few things you'll be asked to do before your fogging service so that the insect infestation on your property can be dealt with appropriately.
- Open windows to try to get rid of some of the flying bugs;
- Vacuum clean and dust surfaces in the affected rooms;
- Remove any sticky traps and baits if you’ve placed any in an attempt to fight the flying insects yourself;
- Clean up any food leftovers and rubbish;
- Remove exposed food and store it in cupboards safely;
- The same goes for pet food and water bowls - put them away.
All the above will help the pest control technician execute the treatment more efficiently and in a safer manner.
What to expect from the fogging service?
The Fantastic pest controllers follow strict procedures, in order to complete the service with guaranteed high-quality results. They take your safety very seriously, hence, you should also comply with all the requirements so that the treatment takes place in a risk-free, yet, effective fashion.
Have a look at how the fogging service goes with Fantastic Services:Inspection
The certified pest control technician will arrive fully equipped at your property and will start the service by inspecting the affected areas, first. They’ll discuss a few service-related matters with you and ask you to leave the premises along with any pets that you might have, including fish. This is done for your safety and to avoid any fogging health risks. You’ll be able to return when the fogging agent has settled.Fogging treatment
Most likely, an ultra-low volume fogging machine will be used to treat your property or individual affected rooms, depending on the severity of the infestation. The equipment will disperse a suitable insecticidal agent in the form of a very fine spray (aerosol), again, based on what type of flying insect is causing the pest issue. Whether mosquitos have been biting you night after night, due to their nearby breeding grounds, or you’ve been suffering from an invasion of nasty flies or destructive moths, rest assured the infestation will be eliminated for good.Post-service advice
You’ll be given expert advice on what to do and avoid doing after the service, as well. For instance, you should air the place well for some time by opening a few windows. Furthermore, you’ll be asked to refrain from vacuum cleaning the floor and wiping surfaces for a few days, where the treatment has taken place. Keep in mind that the fogging product doesn’t leave any visible residues that may damage your furnishings and other surfaces.Prevention
The expert will also provide you with a written service report, which will detail important information, regarding the used treatment and products. It may contain warranty-related specifics, as well. In addition, the professional will give you some pest prevention and proofing tips that will help you prevent future insect infestations.

Frequently asked questions
Q: How long does the fogging service take?
A: This will depend on the size of your property, its layout and the scope of the infestation. Worry not, the pest controller will be able to tell you a more precise time estimate once on-site.
Q: Can fogging be used against crawling insects?
A: It can but it’s rarely that effective, as insects like cockroaches, bed bugs and ants can easily hide away in crevices and gaps. Fogging is best used against flying insects, which are exposed directly to the insecticide.
Q: Are there any risks for my family and pets if fogging is used?
A: Fogging involves the use of approved insecticides with some toxicity. So, it’s important that you leave the premises along with your pets. Still, when every precaution and safety practice are followed, there is no risk for people and animals.
Q: When is the best time of the year to book a fogging service?
A: Well, this really depends on the type of insects that have been bothering you. In general, insect infestations are on the rise towards the end of summer, when the pests are seeking warmth and alternative food sources.
Q: Can I make changes to my appointment?
A: Absolutely. You can reschedule your fogging service by logging into your Fantastic account. Please, do this no later than 24 hours before your original appointment.
