Friday FAQ: Preparing Your Home for German Roach Treatment

At Paragon Pest Control, we're committed to providing you with the most effective solutions for German Roach infestations. A crucial part of this process is your preparation before our team arrives. Here's a comprehensive guide on how to get your home ready for treatment.

Preparation Steps:

  • Clear Out Items: Remove all items from drawers, cabinets, countertops, and pantries in the kitchen. In the bathroom, remove items like toilet paper, toothbrushes, and hand towels. Place these items in a room that will not be treated.

  • Organize the Space: Ensure the floors are clear and items are moved away from the walls. This helps create a clear workspace for our technicians. Items should be off the floors but not placed on beds. Please also clear any clutter or breakables, as we are not liable for damages.

  • Safety First: All people and pets must vacate the premises for a minimum of four hours during treatment. If you have fish tanks, cover them with a heavy blanket and seal them to protect from exposure.

Post-Treatment Care:

  • Avoid Chemical Cleaners: For two weeks after the service, refrain from using chemical cleaners or doing deep cleaning. This period allows the insects to come into contact with our products without interference.

  • Mild Cleaning Only: You can use mild soap and water for routine cleaning on countertops and floors, but avoid cleaning treated areas like inside drawers, cabinets, or the pantry.

What to Expect on Treatment Day:

Our trained technicians will conduct a thorough inspection and treatment of your home, focusing on areas where German Roaches thrive. We use advanced methods and products to ensure the best possible outcome.
