Pests happen all over the world and they happen to the best of us.  Pests are called pests because they bother people.  They invade your physical, mental and emotional space so getting them out of your home quickly is the most beneficial for your overall well-being. It is a wise decision to call a professional pest control company to do this for you and keep the impact of pests on your daily life as minimal as possible.

So, you’ve decided to make the call. American Pest Control has come to your home and confirmed that you do in fact need pest control.  We will be coming soon to perform the treatment. Now what? You might find yourself asking “How do I prepare my home for pest control?”  We have you covered.  Let’s take a look at the steps you’ll need to take.

Do I Need to Clean My Home?

Yes.  We aren’t looking to be impressed by your cleanliness.  It actually helps us do our job better and faster. A space that is clean and free of clutter will allow our pest control technician to easily see where the pests may be hiding.  The chemicals used also may not be as effective on a dirty surface.

Moving Objects and Providing Access

Underneath the stuff piled in the dark corner of your closet will be the place you find pests hiding. American Pest Control will need to easily access these spaces.  You can help us do our job by making these areas easily accessible and moving objects that might be in the way.  This includes large appliances and furniture that may be against the walls.  Moving these items will be a tremendous help, but absolutely not required.

Getting Your Kitchen Ready

After cleaning your kitchen thoroughly, be sure to store all food away.  It should be placed in the refrigerator or cabinets.  Any food preparation tools that normally sit out on the counters should be put away or covered.

Be Home for Your Appointment

Try to be there for your pest control treatment to provide the best access along with answering any questions. Walk with the technician and learn as they point out troubled areas or make recommendations.

Put Your Pets in a Confined Area

Keeping your pet in a kennel or with a pet-sitter will ensure that everyone has a good experience – your pet, the pest control technician and you. With this, American Pest Control will be able to freely open doors, windows and move objects around.

Speak with Pest Control Company About Your Specific Pests

Depending on what pests you have, you may be asked to perform different tasks. When your professional examines your space, ask us for details that are related to your unique case.  We will be able to guide you in the best way for your situation.  For example, a flea infestation will require you to wash all of your bedding while ant control will not.

American Pest Control has over 50 years of experience in helping and caring for homes just like yours in the Las Vegas Valley.  We pride ourselves on treating you well and getting the job done right. Call us at 702-382-6366 for friendly, professional service today.
