Pull the large appliances or furniture apart from the corners of your home. It will provide easy access to the pest control wholesale experts. They can effortlessly get to the edges where most pests live. Moreover, it will save your furniture or appliance from any chemical spills from the pest sprays.
Send your pets to your friend’s or neighbor’s house until the pest control treatment gets over. It is because pets are highly sensitive to chemicals.

If you have an aquarium at your home, cover it with plastic. Meanwhile, give adequate food to the fishes in the aquarium.
Furniture And Clothes
Cover wrap all your clothes, jewelry, makeup, toiletries, and children’s toys with plastic before pest control treatment. Put them inside the cupboards and secure the gaps between the drawers and door with tape. Don’t use masking tape as it will absorb all the chemicals from the pests sprays. Conceal your cushions, bedsheets, pillows, covers, and mattresses and keep them away. Furthermore, conceal the chairs, tables, and sofas with plastic wrap. If you have wooden furniture at home, empty all the furniture to get rid of the termites.
Paintings And Flower Pots
Cover the paintings on the wall with plastic. The chemical sprays may ruin them. On the other hand, flower vases and other plant decorations must be placed where pests control treatment won’t take place like rooftops or on the balcony. You can wrap some vegetation but ensure that they don’t wither away.
Kitchen And Dining Area
Throw away all the dust from the dustbin. Ensure that the countertop of your kitchen is clean and all the utensils, plates, glasses, cups, and cutlery are stored in their respective places. Store them in the kitchen cabinet only if you are not getting the pest treatment done inside them. However, it is advisable to put pet sprays inside the cabinet as these places attract maximum pests. Keep the other small appliances outside or cover them with plastic. Wrap your water filter to ensure no chemical gets inside the filter. As far as the refrigerator is concerned, unplug it before the pests treatment. Make sure that you have finished all the leftovers and perishables.
