What is the termite fumigation process?
Termite Fumigation, sometimes called tenting, is a procedure using canvas tarps to cover and seal a structure allowing the fumigant to penetrate the wood in the structure and eliminate termites.
Like most other things in California, there are far more stringent regulations here than the rest of the country. Quantum Termite and Construction is well versed in all of the latest rules and regulations and our professional fumigators were instrumental in the design, testing, and implementation of the latest California Fumigation regulatioins known as CAP or California Aeration Plan for structural fumigation. This process allows fumigations to be performed with the highest level of safety possible for occupants, the fumigation crew, neighbors, and bystanders.
The following is a general guide and timeline for a typical fumigation performed within the CAP requirements:
Up - Start of Fumigation
Aeration - Begin the "Airing Out" Phase
Certification - Structure is Safe for Re-Entry
What is Vikane gas fumigant?
Vikane (Sulphuryl Fluoride) is a colorless, odorless gas that is non-staining, non-corrosive and non-flammable. As a gas, Vikane dissipates rapidly into the atmosphere and does not deplete the ozone.
What is Chloropicrin?
Chloropicrin, a warning agent, is a colorless liquid with a strong odor, causing tearing of the eyes and throat irritation when used at low concentrations. Chloropicrin helps ensure a structure is vacated of people and pets prior to fumigation with Vikane. It also serves as a warning agent from early or accidental entry during the fumigation process.
