How to Ensure that Your Dubai Family is Safe During a Pest Control Session

If you’ve discovered that you’ve wound up with some really annoying freeloaders and are shortlisting the best pest control services in Dubai to get rid of those unwanted “guests”, you’re probably concerned about the health and safety of your family. And frankly, you should be. The pesticides used by pest control companies can be extremely harmful to people and pets if not handled correctly and if the correct precautions are not taken. That’s why it is very important to only use licensed and experienced pest control companies in Dubai, but there are also a number of extra precautions you can take to protect your family. The experts at ServiceMarket have compiled a list to address your pest-related worries, so read on or click straight here to book some of the best Dubai based pest control companies.

When in trouble, hire a pest control professional

It’s always a good idea to let the experts handle your pest issue rather than go about it yourself. After all, they have years of experience getting rid of nearly every kind of infestation and the right tools to do a guaranteed effective job. You don’t have to go about buying your own supplies, squeezing into every nook and cranny to reach them and fumbling with dangerous chemicals. Just hire a professional Dubaipest control service on ServiceMarket and sit back while they do all the heavy work. We even offer a 3 month guarantee on all pest control services in Dubai!

Do your pest control research

Know thy enemy” so they say. And in the art of war, this is an excellent strategy that will ensure your victory against those pesky home invaders. Do some research (Wikipedia really has everything you need) on the species and look up their habits, where they tend to reside and what they feed on. With the right stock of knowledge, you can help stop future infestations. That said, we aren’t all bug experts, so it’s best to let your pest control company in Dubai deal with it, and advise you on the best precautions to take!

Preventive pest control measures

Do what you can to prevent the infestation from happening in the first place, or to stop it getting worse than it already is. Deprive your opponents of food and water by regularly disposing of garbage and storing food (including your pet’s treats) in airtight containers. Keep your house clean as clutter just gives those annoying critters more spots to hide in and breed. And remember to clean your carpets, upholstery and mattresses frequently. Book a mattress cleaning or steam cleaning service for your carpets and upholstery to get rid of any bugs lying in wait.

If you’re going to do it yourself, do it the right way

Lack of knowledge and experience winds up making you worse off than before, making it all the more important for you to take the right steps if you’re planning on handling your pest problem yourself. Label your pesticides and chemicals properly and store them safely, out of the reach of children and pets, and certainly not where you store your food and medicine. Read and follow the instructions accurately to not only ensure results but also keep you safe when using pesticides – chemicals meant for the outside should not be used indoors! Keep in mind that the chemicals available in the market are not as strong as the ones used by pest control companies, and therefore are much less effective. Furthermore, each bug and pest should be removed by very specific chemicals, which pest control companies will be well versed in. The “kill-all-bugs” type sprays and gels you can buy in supermarkets are rarely effective long-term solutions!

Do what you can to stay safe while performing pest control

If you’re about to ring up a pest control service, do ask what chemicals they will be using and what precautions you and your family should take to limit exposure. For example, many chemicals are deadly for animals, and therefore you should make sure to take extra care with the chemicals used in your home if you have pets. If this applies you to, you may wish you use gel options rather than sprays and only use them in areas that are not accessible by your pets (e.g. higher up in the door cracks). Your pest control company will be well versed in the precautions they should take so make sure to discuss any concerns with them. Get rid of or safely store any food, water and medicine that may be lying about in the open to avoid contamination. You should also check with the company how long to keep your family away from your home after a pest control session. Most pest control companies will recommend that you stay out of the property for at least few hours after they have laid down the chemicals to keep your family safe.
