Fumigation is a complex pest control method with many variables that need to be considered for the treatment to be carried out safely, legally and effectively. Rentokil offers expert commercial fumigation services to support businesses worldwide, not only ensuring commercial properties and business assets are kept pest-free, but that services are delivered by competent and licensed technicians with the required knowledge, skill and experience.
Supported by unrivaled expertise provided by the technical and regulatory teams based in our Global Research and Development Centre, Rentokil ensures all fumigants are used safely and in compliance with legislation and industry best practice across all business sectors we operate in. Every Rentokil fumigation business is individually internally licensed, required to meet both national requirements and governance standards as minimum and follow voluntary Codes of Best Practice for the safe and sustainable use of products determined by bodies such as the Register of Accredited Metallic Phosphide Standards (RAMPS) for safe fumigation in the UK.
As the world’s leading commercial pest control company, Rentokil offers a wide range of fumigation services in a variety of commercial settings, typically:
Silo fumigation is an effective method for treating large volumes of product in silos. The silo must meet protocols for the product to be suitable for treatment.
Whole-building fumigation is used to eliminate infestation from within the building fabric. Buildings range from large food manufacturing plants to residential homes when pest infestations are severe and alternative pest eradication measures are insufficient.
Container fumigation is the treatment of a commodity in a standard shipping container or the empty container itself, to eliminate pests and remove the risk of pests or diseases from entering or leaving a country.
Other fumigation applications include shipping, stacks and chamber, ISPM15, biosecurity, Controlled Atmosphere Treatments (CAT), railcars (static and fumigation-in-transit), pressure chambers and specialist fumigation services to treat delicate objects and goods such as commodities, processed goods, textiles and timber.
Mandatory Rentokil standards have been developed to ensure fumigation is always completed safely and that our colleagues are properly protected. Where there are variances between national, label and Rentokil requirements - the most demanding always applies.
To demonstrate our commitment to your safety, we have included additional requirements in the following key areas:
A fumigation risk assessment and fumigation management plan is developed alongside emergency contingency actions prior to delivery of the service.
Fumigants are closely monitored, stored externally and transported separately from generic pest control products.
Fumigators are provided with electronic equipment and personal gas detectors to constantly track changing gas concentrations
Self-contained breathing apparatus are used in situations where colleagues are likely to be exposed to gas concentrations.
