At Antimite, we have over 23 years of proven performance in safely fumigating homes and business throughout Southern California. We use only the most effective practices available in the industry today offering a complete elimination of termites within any structure.
When it comes to fumigating your home or business, trained professionals work diligently to not only rid your home of drywood termites in the most effective manner possible but also maintain the care of your belongings during the tenting process. When the structure is prepared for fumigation service all major corners of the structure are padded to prevent damage to eves and roofing material.
After the property is cleared of pets and occupants, a check is made to confirm the gas to the structure has been shut off by the Gas Company. Clearly marked signage is placed upon the property to warn of the fumigation process. During set up, fumigant lines are laid out throughout the home or business. Because the fumigant is odorless, a warning agent similar to tear gas is introduced to discourage any potential intrusion. At the same time, workers spread custom made tarpaulins that are tightly rolled and clipped together at the seams and weighted with heavy sand bags or water snakes at the bottom to ensure a tight seal.
Only Branch 1 Licensed Field Representatives administer the fumigant and warning agent on site with calculations based on various factors including: wind speed, temperature, seal and cubic footage of the structure. The fumigant remains in the structure for a predetermined period of time, usually between 18 and 48 hours depending upon the particular needs of the site.
Once complete, the home or business is aerated to remove any remaining fumigant. Before the structure is cleared for reentry by the occupants, fumigant levels are measured with special scientific air sampling instruments to ensure it is safe for reentry. At Antimite, our priority is to provide you an efficient and hassle-free fumigation experience.
