When should it be done?
End of lease pest control treatments need to be done after the final clean. If it is done before this, then the cleaners may remove the treatment. This will remove the chemical barrier and hence there will be nothing to stop pests.
The treatment should also be performed once the premises has been emptied of furniture and personal effects. Obviously if these are still present, we will not be able to treat all the floor areas.
In summary, end of lease treatments should be done once the property is empty and just before you hand the keys back.
What if your premises has fleas?
