    you cannot leave my key in the unit when you leave as my door can only be locked from the outside with the key (there is no finger tab lock) can you leave my key in my next door neighbors unit if they say ok?

      We are pretty good at sliding the key under the door once we used it to lock up from the outside. Our protocol is to leave your key only at the unit it corresponds to. It might be a good idea to buy a simple lockbox so that your key remains secured after the work is done.

    Hello,

    Where is the best place to leave a spare key?

    Thank you.

      Our strongest recommendation is to leave it in a lockbox of your own and email the code to your project manager. Otherwise you can leave your key under the door mat.

    HI Accurate Fumagation technicians,

    So I am responsible for taking all frozen foods and non frozen foods out of my refrigerator and store them where??

    All plants need to be removed and stored at least 3 feet from the walls of the condo . Is that correct?? Of course all pets must be removed too.

    I give my keys to Casar marked with my unit number. Should I also give him the keys to my closet downstairs which is located beside my car?? Do I unlock my storage unit so they can get in if needed? I will probably leave the nite b4 the fumigation and don’t want to leave the closet or storage unit unlocked. How should this be handled?? The storage unit has a padlock on it and I don’t want to leave it unlocked all night b4 the fumigation begins How should this be handled??

      Once you double bag your fridge and freezer items, they can go right back in the refrigerator. Remember that we will not cut off electricity. Plants must be at least 3 feet away from the perimeter of the building. Otherwise they are at risk of sustaining damage. We can only take your residential unit keys. Therefore it is suggested that your storage closet remain unlocked. You can leave it locked until 8am the morning of your fumigation.

      I beleive the gazebo has been approved for temporary plant storage. There may also be other plant storage areas in your community if you reach out to your board of directors.

      Yes. Once your fridge and freezer items have been double bagged, they can go right back inside the refrigerator. Remember the electricity will stay on.

    Thank you for providing such a detailed video that answered many of our questions. We have two more:

    1. Is it easier if we leave all of our drawers, cabinets, and closets partially open before we leave?

    2. We have some large storage bins for holiday decorations, etc… Since you must check any space small enough to hide a child, should we remove the lids from these bins to save you the time?

    Thank you in advance! 🙂

      1. Yes, it is easier if you left all your cabinets and drawers open before leaving.
      2. You do not have to unstack your storage bins or remove the lids. However, leaving the lids slightly wedged open will help to allow airflow for easier ventilation.

      Thanks for the questions!

    Are you able to provide contact info for Casar in order to drop my unit key off?

      Hey Daniel. Unfortunately, we do not have his contact info. Perhaps your community manager can assist with that.

    How long after the last day of fumigation will it be safe to enter the home? Will fumigation take place each day and/or do the designated dates already factor time for safe re-entry?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Your home will be ready for your return at 6pm on your scheduled return day. Waiting any longer to come home is not necessary, but please do not retire before 6pm. The scheduled times and dates of fumigation already factor in all the necessary ventilation for each unit.

    Cars and motorcycles: I have a Classic car and a motorcycle that cannot be stored or parked anywhere else. How should these vehicles be prepped and how will these vehicles be affected by the fumigation of the garage? Thanks

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Hey Joe,
      The car and motorcycle can stay in the garage as long as they are unlocked and accessible for inspection. Be sure to that the trunk, glovebox, and center console are also unlocked. Otherwise the vehicle would have to be towed out. The car and motorcycle will remain unaffected by the fumigation itself.

    Items from freezer and refrigerator that are double bagged and leakproof, can they be placed back in the freezer and refrigerator?

    Reply
    • Ozzie Camacho

      Absolutely! Once all the items have been double bagged, they can go right back in the fridge/freezer. Be sure that the fridge closes properly.

      Hey Sujith. Once the items are double bagged, they can go wherever you prefer as long as they don’t need to stay refrigerated.

    Do wine bottles need to be stored in the plastic bags bags?
    Thank you!

      Hi Nicole. Only if the factory seal on those bottles has been broken. Wine bottles that have never been opened do not have to be double bagged.
