How To Prepare for Your Pest Control Treatment

pest control

You don’t actually have to do any preparation before you get a general spray done in your home. Meaning there is no need to empty any cupboards or move heavy furniture before the technician arrives (only if specially requested). However there are a couple of simple things you can do to help make the whole process easier. If you cant don’t stress we will work it out:  

  • Make sure there is access to all subfloor and roof void access points. (As these are key pest harbourage areas that are very important to treat.)
  • If possible move your car onto the street or out of the way before the service so our technician has easy access to your property.
  • Make sure all gates are un locked so we can access the entire perimeter of your property.
  • Remove any washing from  washing lines before the service so we can treat in and around them for spiders etc.


  • Our Internal treatment includes treatment of interior perimeter skirting boards, kitchens , Bathrooms , laundry areas, roof voids and subfloor areas this eliminates the pests you can see and also the hidden pests you cant see.
  • We then treat the exterior of your home focusing on pest entry points and harbourage areas this will help keep your home free from any new invasions.

One advantage of our pest control service is that we can adapt our service to suit your concerns or needs eg. If you would prefer we don’t treat the inside your home  or you would like us to avoid certain areas just let our technician know and they will customise there treatment plan as needed.


 We always recommend if you’ve got dogs or small children in the house, it’s best  for them to be outside while we’re doing the inside of the property . It’s common for our customers to say , “Hey look, I’ll go for a walk with the dog” or go to the local playground with their kids while your doing the treatment inside or will just sit on the veranda. It  usually only takes 25 minutes for the product to dry. Once the product’s dry, it’s fine to re-enter the property .One thing homeowners should be aware of is that unlike treatment products back in the day, Clean & Greens products are odour free, biodegradable and are applied as a very fine mist to the targeted surface areas only. The applications is dry within a few minutes. There’s no airborne reside or smell. Once dry the product binds with the applied surface and takes affect. This is a great thing for residents as they don’t need to vacate the home or property while the treatment is being carried out.


In order to control spiders and prevent  some insects from entering through cracks in and around windows , it is important we treat around these areas our  technician will do everything in his power not to mark the windows or glass fences but we cannot guarantee that this will not occur. It is always best advised that your annual window cleaning be done 2 weeks after your pest control service. Please note we do not remove spider webs as a part of our pest control service.


There will be some exceptions but in  most cases , you wont need to reschedule your appointment Firstly, many of the treatment products we use use are insoluble and once dried (which usually takes around 1/2 an hour to dry) It is very much the same principle as paint once it dries it won’t be washed away by rainfall, however if it’s been raining heavily, and the weather only looks to be getting worse, then it might be best to reschedule as the product cannot be applied during heavy rain fall.

If we need to reschedule your appointment our admin team will contact you to advise.

 A Detailed post treatment information email will be sent after the treatment has been completed detailing what to inspect how the treatment works and our warrantys / guarantees however these are some following steps you will need to follow after our treatment to get the best results.

  • We recommend you do not clean floors within 30cm of your skirting boards for 1 week after service. You can sweep or vacuum lightly, but do not mop with hot water or cleaning products until after 1 week.
  • Avoid pressure cleaning external walls as this can remove the treatment
  • Don’t brush down cobwebs until 7 days after treatment has been carried out this increases the spider’s exposure to the product resulting in better control
