You and pets must not enter the residence for several hours after the technicians finish the heat treatment process. The technicians will give you a sufficient time to return. This will help ensure the effectiveness of the heat treatment process. The longer the heat is contained, the more effective the process will be. After treatment, you may notice clothing, mattresses, blankets, sofa cushions, etc. are not the way you left them. The technicians will need to remove the dust covers from the bottom of all couches and chairs. The technicians must also rotate and remove these items to achieve even heat distribution throughout the entire treatment area and furniture. Due to the nature of the heat treatment process, it produces heat and wind at a high velocity, place fragile items; lamps, statues, flower vases, candle holders on the floor in the corner of the room.
Technicians and attendant staff members have been scheduled to service you for your treatment and a cancellation on such short notice would not allow sufficient time to schedule other appointments or treatments.
