Flea Treatment

How much is a flea treatment?

The cost of this service for flea treatment in domestic properties is £100 for up to 4 rooms, and additional rooms are charged at £25 per room. In most normal properties, we count the hallway, landing and bathroom as 1 room.

Typically, a 3 bed semi can have the flea treatment completed in 45 to 90 minutes. We then ask that everyone remains out of the property for ideally 4 hours to allow the treatment to dry.

Business premises and other locations are charged on a quoted basis. Contact us for more details. We can apply our treatment to offices, garages, care homes, workshops, retail and many other places. The treatment can also be completed at evenings and weekends if required.

How quickly can you arrive to fumigate fleas?

Under normal circumstances, we can book most flea fumigation treatments in for the next working day, or soon after that. This may vary depending on what else we have booked in, and the size of your property.

This is quite common, and may be something else, not fleas. Contact us to discuss more.
