Office buildings or commercial properties can sustain damage from termite infestation. This fumigation is similar to apartment or condominium fumigation.
If there is a refrigerator, now would be a good time to throw away all those leftovers and forgotten lunches. If you don’t, you’ll end up bagging all of those food items, even that coffee creamer that expired last month.

Opened items that do not need to be removed or sealed in Nylofume bags before the professionals fumigate your office include dental hygiene products (including toothpaste, mouthwash, dental adhesives, and dental whitening products), cosmetics including lipstick, all externally applied lotions and ointments, ice and water.
The most important thing you must do to prepare an office building or commercial property for fumigation is communicate, communicate, communicate. Remember that tenants or employees are going to be sensitive about protecting their valuable equipment and returning to a pest-free home or workplace. Make sure they understand that fumigation is in their best financial interests. You want to eradicate the problem before it causes irrevocable damage to the building’s structure, as well as its contents.
